Buick has just announced pricing for its 2013 Encore, but it’s just the very beginning of the American automaker’s onslaught of models coming up within the next 12 months.

Between Buick and GMC, nine new models are planned for the next year, with the 2013 Enclave crossover launching in the near future. The Enclave will be followed up with the Encore crossover, which will be the smallest vehicle in the Buick lineup. Before the calendar year is over, updated versions of the LaCrosse and Regal sedans will make their debuts. That means by next year, the Verano, which has been on the market for just 11 months, will be the oldest vehicle in the automaker’s lineup.

As for the GMC brand, the new 2013 Acadia crossover will be followed up with new variants of the Sierra and Sierra HD fullsize pickups. Following that up shortly will be the release of the new Yukon and Yukon XL fullsize SUVs. And lastly, the return of the GMC Canyon is also in the plans, but likely won’t happen until 2014.
