Full Size LaCrosse for 2018
Last year, the LaCrosse was introduced as a full-size sedan. This included a redesign with new technology and new interior and exterior styling as well as more luxury added to the vehicle. The LaCrosse redesign included features like a signature waterfall grille that really helps the LaCrosse stand out.
According to the Press Herald, “This car is aimed at professionals in their 30s who are looking for a bridge between a mass-market sedan like a Honda Accord and a more-expensive luxury brand such as BMW or Mercedes.”
For 2018, the Buick LaCrosse will start at a base price of $29,565 and go up to $38,665 for the highest trim level option. There are some key differences between the last model year and the 2018 model year. According to Buick, the 2018 LaCrosse has a new standard engine. This will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an eAssist light electrification system for power. This will have a GM-estimated fuel efficiency of 25 city and 35 highway miles per gallon.
The Press Herald tells us that this eAssist is not a full hybrid system, but “the eAssist provides a power boost from a small electric motor and onboard battery pack for start-up, and adds torque for passing and uphill freeway ramps. It also helps boost fuel efficiency.”
Buick is excited about the eAssist system and how it will add to the innovation and functionality of the LaCrosse.
“Executing innovative technologies in an approachable and meaningful way is core to Buick,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC. “By adding the eAssist system to the LaCrosse, our technology flagship, we are making electrification accessible to our customers as we chart our course to the future of mobility.”
In addition to the eAssist, there will be lots of other features for drivers and passengers to enjoy. Buick’s QuietTuning will help block noise, the vehicle comes with power outlets as well as the comfort and luxury that come with a Buick vehicle. All of this makes the 2018 Buick LaCrosse a vehicle you are going to want to check out for yourself!
