NEW YORK — The 2014 Buick LaCrosse, which is targeted at both U.S. and Chinese markets, gets some exterior and interior improvements. It debuted ahead of the 2013 New York Auto Show.

The 2014 Buick LaCrosse goes on sale here in the summer. Pricing was not announced.

The LaCrosse is aimed at the 2013 Acura TL, Lexus ES 350 and Lincoln MKS.

The 2014 LaCrosse gets new front and rear styling, featuring signature wing-shape LED daytime running lights and LED wraparound taillights. The cabin gets new seats, upgraded materials and a redesigned central instrument panel and console. A new Ultra Luxury Interior package includes synthetic suede headliner and pillar coverings, semi-aniline leather seating and Tamo Ash wood trim.

Buick said some of the interior redesign centers on "greater simplicity." The new center stack radio controls have only seven buttons compared to the previous 17.

Buick is also offering new safety features, but many are optional. A new "Driver Confidence 1" package bundles Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, HID headlights and Head-Up Display.

A "Driver Confidence 2" package adds such items as GM's Safety Alert Seat, which vibrates to warn the driver of the direction of a potential crash threat.

The 2014 Buick LaCrosse gets two carryover engines. They are a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with eAssist light electrification technology or a 3.6-liter V6. Each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Edmunds says: The 2014 Buick LaCrosse gets ready for a debut in the Big Apple.

    The interior kinda looks like a boat, but the exterior definitely looks better / more cohesive than before. Cool.

    I am wondering if Buick reduced the size of the "A" pillars in the 2014 Lacrosse, and overall, whether forward and rear visibility are improved in the new model. Also, Consumer Reports rates this vehicle below average in reliability: what is Edmunds' take of the reliability history of the 2013 Lacrosse? My wife and I recently attended the international car show in Richmond, and are seriously considering the Lacrosse if the visibility and reliability issues have been resolved. .

    Did the "A" pillar size get reduced to improve forward visibility? Did rear visibility improve?

    Is "A" pillar size reduced and overall front and rear visibility improved compared to the 2013 Lacrosse?
