Introduction

The Buick

The story of Buick starts in 1903, when the first Buick car appeared. In 1923 Buick builds its one-millionth vehicle just shy of its 20th birthday. In another 20 years Buick builds more than 2,500 M18 Hellcat tank destroyers, effected by the wartime.

In 1961Latin for “invincible,” the Invicta becomes the centerpiece of Buick’s very first performance line. After 20 more years of constant work and new developments Buick introduces its first ragtop since 1975 with the first-ever Riviera convertible.

Nowadays Buick keep surprising its followers and customers with new ideas and interesting models. This year they have received the 2017 BEST VALUE LUXURY BRAND KELLEY BLUE BOOK award.

The 2017 Buick Encore Premium is developed for more maneuverable handling, so you could enjoy driving without thinking. The available all-wheel drive makes the process easy in any conditions or surface. The standard powerful1.4L turbocharged engine or the optional 1.4L turbocharged engine with Start/Stop technology and Direct Fuel-Injection make the driving process almost like rest.

Available All-Wheel Drive permanently controls all four wheels for maximum traction and shows an electronic limited-slip differential which provides power between wheels to reduce wheel slip. It helps to take easy any changes on the road.
