2010 Buick LaCrosse
Also all-new for 2010 is the Buick LaCrosse. Drawing heavily on the Invicta concept, it continues a bolder, more youthful turn for GM’s premium-car brand.
The new LaCrosse is a real head turner, sleek and stylish from the ground up. A high beltline and raked greenhouse give it a swift and powerful look and a natural partner to the elegant Enclaves CUV.
Given Buick’s high popularity in China, the LaCrosse takes on a decisively international appearance.
“When I first saw the new LaCrosse, it was here in the parking lot, and I really wasn’t sure what it was. I was thinking, that’s gotta be German and I got a little closer and I was thinking maybe Italian and even a little closer I said, “That’s gotta be the new Jag.” Then I got right up on top of it and realized it was Buick and it blew my mind.” Ben Davis
Aside from it’s eye-catching outer shell, things have also changed greatly under the hood. Pushrods are history, replaced by twin-cam, direct injected V6s, a 255 horse 3.0-liter and the Enclave’s 280-horsepower 3.6-liter.
A frugal, also direct injected 2.4-liter I4 will arrive later in the year.
6-speed automatics are standard. The front-drive LaCrosse can also be upgraded to all-wheel drive, a first for a Buick sedan.
Inside, the LaCrosse gets the VIP treatment-the Invicta’s critically-acclaimed interior carries over nearly unchanged, with a stylish twin-gauge cluster, water fall center console, and buttressed armrests.
Available amenities include leather, automatic dual-zone climate, large nav screen, and a head-up display.
The LaCrosse is in showrooms now starting just under $28,000.
