Is there any chance of a Chevy version?

Fail... I know Buick is trying to attract younger buyers but this isn't going to do it. I'm in my 30s and need room for two car seats and sometimes one adult (Gramma). If they widened an Equinox and put Buick styling, it would have been a winner. P.S. Made it Korea? I'd rather buy a Kia that's made here.

They have, it's called a Buick Enclave.

Is that a V6? It has six portals.

SD The Enclave is 15 inches longer and holds 8. It's like saying an Caprice is the same as a Malibu.

Using that logic, sure. What you're forgeting though is that the Equinox is already one of the largest CUV's in it's class. Bigger than a CRV, Rav4, Escape, Tucson and so forth.

At the same time, as you mentioned, they also have a larger CUV that sits up to 8 people with the Enclave, Traverse and Acadia.

Not to mention the Cadillac SRX which goes after the luxury market.

Then you add in the fact that the market keeps demanding vehicles become evn more fuel efficient than before and i don't know about you but bigger doesn't = better fuel efficiency.

The Encore thus makes sensse, brings a smaller CUV to market that doesn't compete against the products GM already has. Provides fuel efficiency with the four cylinder and maybe if sales are good, we'll see a turbo four in there for performance.

Basically the Encore makes sense. If you need bigger, GM provides you with a bunch of other choices already, so why add another one into the portfolio that with sales figures taken into account, have been winners.

Your argument thus makes no sense at all.

This thing is UGLY. This will not attract younger buyers and depending on price point, I'd rather go for a loaded Equinox or a lower SRX. Thank god there is a Buick Vibe.

what a very fugly suv!

The would be nice on a larger vehicle. On here, it makes the car look way too narrow and small. I dislike the steering wheel as well. Buick should've revised the Equinox for this.

The interior looks nice. The exterior, well, I just don't know. It looks too stubby,too truncated. I really want another success for Buick, but I don't think this is it.

Then again, people are buying the Nissan Juke, and that thing is ugly as sin...

Hideous!
