New or Significantly Altered Models

2013 Buick Encore
The all new Encore is a small five-passenger SUV which is closely related to the Opel Mokka sold in other markets. At just 168 inches long outside, the Encore has a passenger compartment that is roughly equivalent to that of their smallest sedan, the Verano. A 140-bhp, 1.4l turbocharged four-cylinder engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive applications.

Updated Models

2013 Buick Enclave
Like its siblings the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, the Buick Enclave is updated for 2013 with new front-end styling, rear-end styling and a new interior. The new styling is identified by a more vertical front end with a more prominent grille. The updated interior has an ambient lighting detail like the LaCrosse. The 2013 model is virtually identical in exterior and interior dimensions to the 2012. The 3.6l V6 carries over producing 288-bhp.

Mostly Unchanged

2013 Buick LaCrosse
2013 Buick Regal
All Regals equipped with the 2.4l four-cylinder engine will include eAssist hybrid technology.
2013 Buick Verano
The Verano gains a Turbo model. Power is provided by a 2.0l, four-cylinder engine rated at 250-bhp. The Turbo is offered with a choice of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
