Charlotte, NC, May 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Buick has been working hard to change its image and appeal to younger drivers. Liberty Buick GMC of Matthews, NC is offering reduced prices on one of Buick's most popular crossovers- the 2014 Buick Encore. Right now, at Liberty Buick GMC, qualified leases can get a brand new 2014 Buick Encore for $199 a month for 39 months and qualified buyers can receive up to $4,000 off!

"We chose to highlight the Buick Encore this summer because it is great for drivers of any age," explains Scott McCorkle, owner of Liberty Buick GMC. The small SUV was named the "Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality" by JD Power and Associates, tied with the Kia Sportage and Nissan Juke. The 2014 Buick Encore has also been named the "Best Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover" in Kelley Blue Book's 5-year Cost to Own Award.

Buick's new campaign is "Experience the New Buick" and they are hoping to diminish the image that Buicks are for old people. "The best way to experience the new Buick is come down for a test drive," says McCorkle. The 2014 Buick Encore comes with technology features like available remote vehicle starter, voice activated controls for music and hands free calling, and the optional Bose® premium seven-speaker audio system. Safety features include collision- avoidance technology like Rear-cross traffic alert and side blind zone alert.
