More Information: 2020 Buick Encore GX

From: https://media.buick.com/media/us/en/buick/home.detail.html/content/Pages/news/us/en/2019/may/0529-encore.html

When the Encore GX arrives in early 2020, Buick will offer four premium SUVs across the three segments customers are shopping in most: small, compact and midsize. The Encore GX will be positioned between the smaller Encore and the larger Envision and Enclave models. It will offer new standard safety technologies* and its style and functionality will be just right for many of today’s buyers.

“As we look to the future of Buick, the Encore GX positions us strongly as a consideration for those who want to purchase small or compact SUVs,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC.

Today, almost 90 percent of U.S. Buick sales come from SUVs.

The Encore GX’s new standard safety and driver assistance features will include Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It will also offer the Enclave’s innovative Rear Camera Mirror, which provides a wide, less obstructed rear view while parking and driving, and High Definition Surround Vision camera system.

Its spirited and efficient performance will be paired with a purposefully designed cargo space that’s almost 5 cubic feet larger than the Encore and about 3 cubic feet smaller than the Envision.

Product specifications and pricing will be announced when the Encore GX begins arriving at U.S. dealers.

*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times.  Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance.

Is There Going To Be A New Kia Borrego?

From: https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1124550_kia-reveals-new-mohave-is-a-borrego-coming-too

Kia on Wednesday revealed a redesigned Mohave, a mid-size SUV whose predecessor was briefly sold in the United States late last decade as the Borrego.

There isn’t any indication that the redesigned Mohave is destined for local sale, but given the consumer trend toward crossovers and SUVs we wouldn’t be surprised if the vehicle ends up here as a little brother to the Telluride.

The six-lug wheel design suggests more ruggedness and off-road capability than your typical Kia, something which could set this SUV apart from the family-oriented Telluride. There are also chunky fog lights and fixed running boards, which once again suggest a vehicle for active lifestyles.

Underpinning the redesigned Mohave is thought to be an updated version of the body-on-frame platform found in the outgoing model. It enables rear- and four-wheel-drive configurations.

A “V6 3.0” badge on the tailgate suggests the vehicle will be offered with the 3.0-liter diesel fitted to the outgoing model. The outgoing model’s 3.8-liter V-6 will also likely be offered, though don’t count on its 4.6-liter V-8 being offered too.

Unfortunately, Kia hasn’t released any information on its redesigned Mohave. We’ll bring you an update as soon as more is known.

Kia Telluride Super Bowl Commercial

This year during the Super Bowl, Kia presented the following commercial featuring the all new Full Size SUV, the 2020 Telluride.

 

 

“This year, we’re honoring the great unknowns. People who work hard and make incredible things. People who Give It Everything.

We’re beginning in West Point, Georgia. A town that’s come to mean everything to us. Because West Point is where every Telluride is assembled.

Also, this year we’ve set aside money for The Great Unknowns Scholarship. A program to help exceptional young people get a well-deserved foothold in higher education.”

The Telluride will be available at VanDevere Kia in the Spring of 2019. To learn more about this awesome new vehicle from Kia, visit:
