The smallest vehicle GM soon to be sold in this country? That honor belongs to the all-new 2013 Buick Encore.
The Encore is a luxury small crossover. Buick says the Encore is for those new wave of Buick buyers who are looking for luxury amenities in a more maneuverable and agile vehicle.
The Encore will only be available with the Ecotec 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine found in other small GM cars. The engine produces 140 hp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque between 1850 and 4900 rpm. It features deceleration fuel cutoff for improved efficiency, which is also helped by low-rolling-resistance tires and electric power steering. The Hyrda-Matic 6T40 six-speed automatic transmission has a tall overdrive top gear and neutral-gear disengagement for further fuel savings.
