General Motors has announced pricing for the 2013 Buick Encore will start off at $24,950, including a $750 destination charge. Four different models are available, along with a convenience package. This package bumps the price up to $25,760 and includes dual-zone climate control, a remote starter, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, fog lights, and a 120-volt outlet. Adding the Leather Group package brings things up to $27,460. If you're seeking the best-dressed Encore for 2013, that will run you $28,940. Standard features on the 2013 Buick Encore include 18-inch wheels, a seven-inch, high-definition infotainment system with IntelliLink connectivity; and Bose Active noise cancellation. The aforementioned Leather Group package features heated front seats and steering wheel, leather-trimmed upholstery, and driver and passenger seat memory functions. If you do opt for the top-of-the-line trim, you'll get everything from the Leather Group and Convenience Package as well as a seven-speaker Bose audio system and subwoofer, a cargo net and mat, rain-sensing windshield wipers, Forward Collision Alert with Lane Departure Warning, and front and rear park assist. If an all-wheel drive Encore is what you have your heart set on, that will set you back an additional $1,500 on top of the price of the crossover itself. Many options are available on their own. The Convenience, Leather, or Premium packages cost $795 each.  Want 18-inch chrome-clad wheels. That'll be $995 a set. A sunroof can be installed for $800. The Bose audio system is available for $595.
The announcement of pricing for the 2013 Buick Encore comes with news that both Buick and GMC will be releasing nine completely new or heavily redesigned vehicles over the course of the next year. The Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, while no stranger to each brand's portfolio, will be the first models to be reintroduced later this fall. Other General Motors vehicles to be reintroduced in the coming months include the Buick Regal and LaCrosse; GMC Sierra and Sierra HD; as well as the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. By the end of next year, the Buick Verano and GMC Terrain will also be reintroduced with new features and styling. GM also announced that the GMC Canyon will continue to live on and be produced at the Detroit-based automaker's Wentzville, Mo. facility. In total, GM plans to have 70 percent of its lineup be new or significantly refreshed by the end of next year. Source: General Motors
