2017 Buick LaCrosse Bound for Dealerships in July, Priced at $32,990

DETROIT — The all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse full-size sedan will arrive at Buick dealerships in July with a starting price of $32,990.

The pricing includes a $925 destination charge and reflects a $1,000 increase over the 2016 LaCrosse.

Buick spokesman Stuart Fowle told Edmunds that full pricing will be available next month.

"That starting price is in line with top trim levels from Honda, Toyota and Nissan and thousands lower than any sedan from Lexus and Lincoln, supporting Buick's position of attainable luxury," Fowle said.

Standard equipment includes Buick's signature QuietTuning, a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine, a new eight-speed automatic transmission, HID headlights and push-button start.

Other standard features include 10 airbags, Wi-Fi and an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 2017 LaCrosse gets a new grille design and is longer, lower and wider than the outgoing model.

It is also about 300 pounds lighter than the current LaCrosse, largely due to the use of special high-strength steels that contribute to greater efficiency and more responsive handling.

Key LaCrosse competitors include the Chrysler 300, Lexus ES 350, Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers in this segment will find an attractive pricing strategy on the all-new LaCrosse, something that makes a showroom visit worthwhile.
