Buick LaCrosse: Not Just Your Father’s Car
Buick’s largest luxury sedan, LaCrosse is developed by none other than the biggest American automaker GM. Introduced in the year 2004, it replaced Regal and Century in Northern part of America in 2005.
The second generation Lacrosse is a quite peaceful riding sedan that shares its platform with Epsilon II, which is built upon 2010 Saab 9-5, and Opel Insignia. It also resembles Invicta version.
America’s Lexus Fighter!
According to the auto manufacturer, the new model is claimed to be ‘America’s Lexus fighter’. With the end of production of Lucerne and reintroduction of Regal, LaCrosse is no longer available as entry-level edition, but rather as the brand’s premium, flagship sports sedan.
The CX edition is powered by 3.0-liter V6 engine, replacing the older 2.4-liter Ecotec 4-cylinder engine. The latest versions come with option of 3.6-liter V6 power-train. Other trims include CXS and CXL.

The new LaCrosse has a flashier exterior styling and comes with camera-equipped, radar safety features. The front-wheel drive model is available at a base price of $34,060, while the all-wheel drive costs close to $40,000.
