The 2017 Buick LaCrosse
With a sleek design that delivers on the inside as much as it does on the outside, the brand new 2017 Buick LaCrosse is a machine that hits the sweet spot of luxury and worth. Starting at around $33,000, the 2017 LaCrosse is ready to go toe-to-toe with the Kia Cadenza, Nissan Maxima, Chrysler 300, Lincoln MKZ and Lexus ES.
But what sets the LaCrosse apart from the rest?
Value. The 2017 LaCrosse is a welcome addition to the semi-premium market, giving buyers a lot of luxury for each dollar spent. As Motor Trend put it, the LaCrosse delivers a quiet ride, a beautiful interior, improved fuel economy, impressive power and more at a price that makes it highly competitive in comparison to its pricy competitors.
Under the hood, all of the LaCrosses feature a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 310 horsepower and 282 foot-pounds of torque with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Even with all eight speeds, reviewers happily report that there shifting is buttery smooth, matched by standard paddle shifters on every trim for better response and braking. Additionally, the engine features start/stop technology and active fuel management to give the LaCrosse its most competitive fuel specs yet at 20-21mpg in the city and 29-31 mpg on the highway in its FWD option. However, buyers can choose from this FWD version or the AWD with an Active Twin Clutch.
Inside, features include the 8-inch IntelliLink system that’s fingerprint-resistant and provides feeds to the LaCrosse’s rearview camera with rear parking sensors in addition to your favorite music, smartphone contacts, Apple CarPlay, GPS navigation and more. The fluid and intuitive Head-Up Display is available to project information onto the windshield, helping drivers stay focused on the road ahead. Tall family and friends will enjoy the LaCrosse’s spacious backseats and widened door opening, a trait that’s mimicked in the car’s impressive cargo space at 15 cubic feet. Higher trim levels include options such as heated seats, lane keeping assist, automatic braking systems and rear cross-traffic alert.
It’s no secret anymore that today’s Buick isn’t old-fashioned. With entries like the 2017 LaCrosse, it’s clear that Buick is dedicated to delivering a driving experience unlike ever before.
