General Motors executives today announced they will reveal nine all-new or redesigned Buick or GMC models by the end of next year.
The models include the 2013 Buick Encore crossover (already introduced), which will start at $24,950, the Buick Enclave, Buick Regal, Buick LaCrosse, GMC Acadia, GMC Sierra, GMC Sierra HD, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL.
“Our dealers have a lot momentum in the marketplace right now. During the next 12 months we’ll continue to give them new reasons for customers to visit their showrooms,” Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of marketing for Buick and GMC, was quoted as saying in a conference call by the Detroit Free Press.
In a separate announcement, GM said it would soon introduce a new version of the GMC Canyon mid-size truck, as it believes the Canyon will fill a void in the market. “We know there’s a group of customers that want the functionality of a truck but may not need a full-size pick,” DiSalle said.
The executive decline to announce the launch date of the new version or any other details, but said it will be produced at GM’s Wentzville plant in Missouri. After 2013, the GMC Terrain and the Buick Verano will be the oldest models in the two brands’ lineups, GM said.
