Buick rolled out an all-new 2017 LaCrosse at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, embodying a sharper and more elegant design language. This near-luxury sedan will compete against the Lexus ES 350, Acura TLX, Chrysler 300, Hyundai Genesis and Toyota Avalon when it goes on sale in the summer of 2016.
This time around, the 2017 LaCrosse is larger than before but shed about 300 pounds, thanks to the use of high strength steel components. Exterior styling is a welcome departure from previous Buick designs, featuring a graceful overall shape and tasteful accents and body creases.
The cabin features a similar elegant design with a center console that sweeps upward to the wide dashboard. A large 8-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the cockpit and will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Other interior touches include a head-up display, contrasting leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats and wireless phone charging.
Under the hood will be a new 3.6-liter V6 that is expected to produce 305 horsepower, channeled through an eight speed automatic transmission. A smart all-wheel-drive system will also be available as will an active adaptive suspension.
