General Motors will be busy at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in January, announcing the reveal of the important new Cadillac ATS, as well as an all-new compact crossover for the Buick brand. Called the Encore, it is based on the same architecture as the Sonic sub-compact and as a result will be a size-down from other GM compact crossovers like the Chevy Equinox.

In recent conversations with a GM insider, AutoGuide was told that while it technically fits in the same category as the MINI Countryman and Nissan Juke, it will have a more conventional SUV look (along the lines of the Enclave) and will be focused on more traditional Buick values.

To help build interest, Buick will launch a new Encore tab on its Facebook page later this week, where it will slowly reveal sections of the new SUV.
