One of the most significant debuts at the 2015 LA Auto Show includes the all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse sedan. Inspired by the Buick Avenir Concept, which made its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the new LaCrosse gets a complete new design along with a new interior and new features.
“The new LaCrosse is drop-dead gorgeous and signals the next phase of Buick’s international momentum,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick. “Its quietness, comfort and connectivity were developed to set new standards in the segment, supported by technologies not offered on competitors such as the Lexus ES.”
Weighing in about 300 pounds lighter than the current LaCrosse – largely due to the use of press-hardened, high-strength steels – power for the new 2017 model year comes from a 3.6 liter V6 engine making 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. With a more focus on refined driving, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse also gets a new five-link rear suspension and available HiPer Strut front suspension, an all-new dual-clutch all-wheel drive system (for AWD models), and Continuous Damping Control active suspension with selectable Touring and Sport modes.
Besides the exterior, the interior also sees a major redesign highlighted by a new Buick IntelliLink system with a frameless 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen featuring Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot integration.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will showrooms in the summer 2016. Stop by your local AutoNation Buick dealership for availability and a test drive today!
