    Buick has shown off yet another section of the Encore CUV set to debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

    Teased: Buick names new small CUV Encore, promises Detroit debut
    1323900060

    Corroborating long-held suspicions and spy shots, General Motors has confirmed that its surging Buick marque will shortly receive a second crossover. Dubbed "Encore" (apparently GM is hoping consumers have short memories), the five-seat CUV will be revealed at next month's 2012 Detroit Auto Show and carry a 2013 model year designation. This is the first ...
