In some ways the Trax may be responsible for increasing Encore sales. People go in to look at the Trax and then they ask, "I like this, but is there something more?" And then they go and look at the Encore, a more luxurious version. Some of those people may never have gone to look at a Buick had it not been for the Trax in the first place.

I'm not sure how big that effect would be, or if it exists. May just be a product of the segment being quite popular.

True. I'll admit, the Trax may not be the greatest option out there, it's not for everyone but at least GM still comes out winning since they're still benefiting greatly from the same platform.

It would be great to see what these people who bought the Encore think of the Trax, that might provide some pointers to Chevy on how to improve it.

Well Chevy just did a refresh for MY2016 for the Trax. Not sure how much of that was influenced by what is seen as the good points of the Encore.

Probably little effect if any. GMC and Buick are sold in different show rooms to keep differentiation from Chevrolet.

I can see why Buick would be in a separate show room because the two brands have vehicles that are quite similar. GMC doesn't seem to have as much connection, but perhaps that is just me being less familiar with GMC vehicles.

GMC and Buick share a showroom to keep those two separate from Chevrolet. GMC overlaps with Chevrolet more so then Buick does.
