2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V8 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Before shopping for our new Lucerne I checked Edmunds.com. One reviewer said (paraphrasing): "If you think you need more luxury than the new Lucerne, you need therapy." Those are my sentiments in a nutshell. This is the car GM tried to build 9-10 years ago with the Olds Aurora. My wife and I passed then, largely due to price. With the new Buick Lucerne-CXL, we have just about everything we could have wanted, including the Northstar, V-8; leather seats; and chrome, 17-inch wheels for a lot less money. I was astounded at what we got for what we paid--a $40,000 car for $27,500. It's in the color we wanted, Sagemist metallic. The car is powerful and ultra-quiet. A must-see for a new car shopper.
Northstar V-8; chrome-plated wheels; power accessories.
