SRT Viper due for a refresh in 2015 - Autoweek TV with Greg Migliore
SRT Viper due for a refresh in 2015, Honda and Acura drivers can enjoy Siri
hands-free, and GM is moving the Performance Build Center to Bowling Green,
The SRT Viper just got here. It's back after taking a break for several
years. That's great and all, but when is it going to be updated? How about
Chrysler showed a peek at its future product plans Wednesday during an
earnings announcement, and that is one of the juicy details revealed.
Three of the existing SRT vehicles get refreshed next year, and a new one
is added to the lineup of hot rods in 2016. Chrysler didn't say what that
Honda is adding Siri as an option in the Accord, and Acura ILX and RDX. The
voice assistant from Apple will be a dealer-installed option for 2013. You
push a button on the steering wheel, and then talk hands free.
And in a little bit of insider news: The GM Performance Build Center is
moving from Wixom, Mich., which is a far-flung suburb of Detroit, to
Bowling Green, Ky. And not just anywhere. Its new home is in the Corvette
factory. That sounds pretty logical.
That's it for today. I'm Greg. Check out all of our related videos on

2013 Buick Encore Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/encore/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Buick Encore
is a compact luxury crossover based on an Opel vehicle called the Mokka.
This all new model is built on GM's Gamma II Platform which also includes
cars like the Spark, Sonic, and Cobalt. The Buick Encore has seating for 5
passengers and combines technology, luxury amenities, and a fuel efficient
engine into one reasonably priced sub-compact crossover with the base model
The 2013 Buick Encore is a handsome little CUV in a class that is growing
quickly. The stylish Encore is uniquely positioned as the only luxury entry
among sub-compact crossovers. The 1.4 liter turbocharged engine makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft or
torque. The Encore is equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The
small engine results in good fuel economy ratings of 25 MPG in the city and
33 MPG on the highway.
The Encore rides well for a short wheelbase crossover and is also extremely
quiet. The exterior design may catch your eye but it's the luxurious
leather interior that will win you over. There is a whole lot of style in
this pint-sized CUV. The 2-tone leather upholstery with contrasting
stitching really delivers the feel of luxury. The Encore has all the bases
covered when it comes to technology. The Buick Intellilink Infotainment
system is located in the dash and provides a whole myriad of services
including Bluetooth phone, satellite radio, navigation, weather, and more.
The 2013 Buick Encore can't really be compared to anything currently on the
market. It's not an SUV but rather a sub-compact luxury CUV and no other
vehicles tick those boxes. The Encore is a cute-ute more inline with city

vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
