2013 Buick Enclave Luxury Crossover SUV Test Drive & Walkaround Video Review

http://www.autobytel.com/buick/enclave/2013/?id=32972 Autobytel recently met with Nick Richards Product Communications Manager for Buick. Nick gave us a wonderful walkaround review of the new 2013 Buick Enclave luxury crossover SUV. This vehicle has been dramatically redesigned for the 2013 model year starting from the front end and working all to the way to the back as well as both inside and out. What's even better is that the 2013 Buick Enclave starts out with an affordable base price of $38,445. The front end design is now much more dramatic and pronounced look that makes the 2013 Buick Enclave look aggressive. The new grille and LED headlights are the first thing people notice when driving down the road. The standard wheels are 18-inch aluminum pieces but you can upgrade to larger 20-inch chrome rims. Along the sides are chrome accents to give the Enclave a sleeker presence. The rear has been totally redesigned featuring a dual Exhaust that has been integrated into the lower bumper diffuser. The LED taillights give this vehicle a dramatic look at night. The engine is a 3.6 liter direct injection V-6 that makes 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic which helps the 2013 Buick Enclave manage 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway. Buick basically redesigned the entire driver's cockpit on the inside of the Enclave for 2013. The premium materials feature live stitching, contrasting materials, high end wood accents, a new center stack with capacitive touch controls, and accent lighting. One great thing about the Buick Enclave is that it is designed to carry people and families. This large crossover SUV can seat up to 8 passengers but you can also opt for Captain's Chairs in the second row. The 2013 Buick Enclave is a great buy compared to other large crossover SUVs for a couple of reasons. First, the Enclave price point is lower than most the competition. Second, the Enclave is a great looking car with many new enhancements for the 2013 model year. Third, the interior is segment leading thanks to the nice choice of materials. The Enclave has proven to be a good vehicle for the past 5 years and now with this new refresh ups the ante even more.

2013 Buick Encore Test Drive & Luxury Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/encore/2013/?id=32972 The 2013 Buick Encore is an all new model that is poised to take on the compact luxury crossover segment. The Encore combines a chiseled exterior design, versatile interior, with tons of technology and premium materials to create a one of a kind vehicle. The 2013 Buick Encore comes in 4 trims: Base, Convenience, Leather, and Premium. You can opt for either a FWD or AWD version. The base price is $24,200 making the Encore a great choice as an entry level luxury crossover SUV. The compact crossover segment is so hot that Buick has decided to bring this all new model (the Encore) to market. If the Encore looks a little smaller than most crossover you are used to seeing that's because it is. This new compact luxury crossover segment just may catch on. The Encore, like all Buick models, has the big signature grille up front. Buick is no longer at the bottom of the premium barrel, instead it is moving up the ladder. The large bold headlamps and the portholes in the hood are signature Buick cues. When Buick set out to build the Encore, they did not just want to make another crossover. Instead they wanted a relatively inexpensive crossover to look premium. The exterior hits that mark with the multiple bends in the sheet metal and other styling cues, while the theme is carried over to the interior with the premium materials and tons of technology. There is plenty of room in the Encore for 4 adults and their gear. The 2013 Buick Encore is powered by a turbocharged 1.4 liter 4-cylinder ECOTEC engine that makes 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed manual and you can opt for either FWD or AWD. Fuel economy is excellent with the FWD model netting 25 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway. From a driver's perspective, the Encore drives very well. Buick has paid a lot of attention to keeping the engine noise and road noise down to a minimum. The Encore feels like a very premium vehicle when you get in it. The Electro-Mechanical steering feels good and is responsive. The interior is very spacious giving the passengers plenty of head room. The soft leather seats and nice dash materials contribute to the overall premium feel which is something you just do not find in a $25k crossover. Buick understands that technology and connectivity is important in this segment. So they made Bluetooth and Rear Vision Camera standard on all trims. But it's the higher trim levels that get the full Infotainment system. The main competition is the Mini Countryman and the Volkswagen Tiguan. For a starting price of under $25k the 2013 Buick Encore makes a ton of sense for a lot of people.

2013 Toyota RAV4 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/toyota/rav4/?id=32972 The Toyota RAV4 first hit the shores here in the U.S. back in 1996. This little crossover SUV along with the Honda CR-V is responsible for starting the crossover craze. Today there are almost 50 different crossover models for sale here in America. The 4th generation RAV4 is an updated model that gets a complete interior and exterior redesign as well as an updated powerplant. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 comes in 3 trim levels: the LE, the XLE, and the top of the line Limited. The base price on the LE trim is just under $25k The RAV4 vs. CR-V battle reminds us of the old Ford vs. Chevy battles during the muscle car era. Over the past few years the Honda CR-V has really taken over the segment, gaining the most market share. But the all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4 aims to get back on top of the crossover sales charts. There are a ton of new features and lots of changes that make the 4th generation RAV4 the best ever. The past generation Toyota RAV4 came with a choice of a 4-cylinder or V-6 engine. Well the larger V-6 has been dropped and now the only engine offered is an efficient 2.5 liter 4-cylinder making 176 horsepower and 172 lb-ft. of torque. What that means is coupled with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission and FWD; the 2013 Toyota RAV4 will return 31 MPG on the highway. You can also opt for an AWD version as a $1400 option. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 has been completely redesigned outside and in. It all starts with a brand new front end consisting of a bold grille and headlights that look similar to the new Camry. This generation RAV4 was made more aerodynamic and the result is better fuel economy. If you are buying a crossover chances are you may be driving around small children. The new Toyota RAV4 comes with a segment leading 8 standard air bags. Toyota engineers also worked the interior design to allow for the most cargo volume in the segment. The interior of the 2013 Toyota RAV4 is completely new with some great new features including an Acoustic Windshield which helps reduce wind noise. From the driver's perspective, the new instrumentation is pleasing while being easy to use. After the 7 year run of the previous model, Toyota has really stepped it up inside the cabin. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 sits nicely on the road and you will like the way it drives on the highway. This is an economy crossover SUV after all so you shouldn't expect the RAV4 to ride like a luxury car. Bottom line is that Toyota did a great job on the newly redesigned RAV4. They really hit the mark on this one and it's a huge improvement over the outgoing model. The 2013 Toyota RAV4 certainly has all the features you need. In fact the RAV4 can now compete with the Honda CR-V at the top of the economy crossover SUV segment.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."
