As the rest of the automotive market struggles to beat an overall decrease in sales, the Buick Encore and Envision both sold significantly more in the last quarter of 2019 than in the same quarter of 2018. The Enclave was the second-highest seller for the year at 10,143 units.
SUV sales across the industry are way up while sedan sales are down, so it makes sense that the bestsellers in the Buick lineup were SUVs. In fact, 95.8 percent of Buick sales were SUVs. The 22.2 percent gain for the Encore and the 11.2 percent gain for the Envision show a market trend toward small SUVs.
Last year’s sales fall perfectly in line with the decision to discontinue the sedans in the Buick lineup. Since the automaker’s sedans have been routinely outpaced by its SUVs, it’s no surprise that Buick will soon move away from cars like the LaCrosse and Regal in order to give drivers what they want.
Soon Buick will focus entirely on premium crossovers and SUVs like the Encore and Envision, which are loaded with luxury features like Keyless Open and Start, heated front seats, and QuietTuning technologies that make your daily commute easier, whether you’re a parent, single, or in between.
No matter what you’re looking for, Buick’s upcoming all-SUV lineup has something you’ll love. To experience the automaker’s luxurious crossovers—including the best-selling Encore and Envision—for yourself, swing by Rivard Buick GMC for a test drive.
