2014 Buick LaCrosse What's new for 2014? 
2014 Buick LaCrosse

Extensively freshened, the LaCrosse sports a bigger waterfall grille, a new hood, and revised lighting with the option of bi-xenon HID adaptive headlights. The rear fascia has an integrated spoiler and wraparound LED taillights, and the interiors have been redesigned with upgraded materials, new seats, a new center control stack, updated telematics, and a posh new Ultra Luxury option.

2013 Buick LaCrosse

After eAssist's debut last year, 2013 is quiet for the LaCrosse. Option groups are arrayed in five packages now (previously seven), ranging from the base LaCrosse to the Touring package, with Leather, Premium I and Premium II levels filling in. All-wheel drive (AWD) is available on Leather and Premium I trim levels.

2012 Buick LaCrosse What's new for 2012? 
2012 Buick LaCrosse

The biggest change in the 2012 LaCrosse is standard eAssist, which marries an 11 Kw (15-hp) electric motor to a 182-hp 2.4-liter Ecotec four driving a six-speed automatic transmission. It's good for a 20-percent improvement in EPA highway fuel economy and an impressive 32-percent boost in city economy over the 2011 four-cylinder LaCrosse. If you prefer horsepower to hybrid power, a lighter and more powerful (than last year) 303-hp 3.6-liter V6 is a no-cost option.

The redesigned 2010 LaCrosse is not the stately Buick sedan that your grandfather drove. With a fresh look, a just-right price and a much more engaging ride than you'd expect, this four-door is sure to make people rethink the Buick brand.

For 2009, heated side mirrors are made standard on all models, while the CX trim has its wheel covers replaced by 16-inch painted aluminum wheels. Bluetooth hands-free phone communication is now optional across the line. The CSX trim has been discontinued.

About Buick LaCrosse

Buick's 2014 LaCrosse is intended to bring younger buyers to what has traditionally been seen as a nameplate for more senior folks. Conservatively handsome, well equipped, capable, quiet, comfortable, and refined, the car boasts eAssist, GM's mild-hybrid system. A 304-hp V6 engine is available, and offers the option of all-wheel drive. But we actually prefer the progressive spirit of the eAssist powertrain, with its 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, small electric "boost" motor and regenerative braking. In a rare win-win, the system improves both fuel economy and performance, and combines with the car's solid look and feel to create a thoroughly credible alternative to the established imports. Although powertrains and chassis are unchanged, the LaCrosse rolls into 2014 with new front and rear fascias and upgraded interiors.

Pros: "V6 has lots of power; 6-speed auto trans is smooth; excellent handling; very nice interior"

Cons: "Rear view is someone restricted; but reverse sensing system helps overcome this."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I am very happy with my LaCrosse CXL. The car offers a lot of features I wouldn't have expect on a car in this price range. Performance is excellent and the V6 engine gives more than enough power while maintaining good mileage for a car as heavy as the LaCrosse (I got 32 MPG on a recent trip to Boston). The interior is luxurious; everything is soft and inviting; the seats are very comfortable and the ambient lighting adds a nice touch. This car is a winner and definitely not your grandfather's Buick. If GM can continue to makes cars like this they have a customer for life in me."

Cons: "front seats could be more comfortable, stereo ok"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I loved the look of this car. The front bucket seat could be more comfortable. At first I thought Buick put the arm rest too far back until i realized it slides forward. It is extremely fast and responsive. You get better gas mileage when you are in sport mode and shifting the gears yourself. I got the touring package and love it. HUD is a must. I've heard better stereos but it is ok. One complaint is I wish there were paddle shifters on the steering wheel. It gets a lot of looks plus you don't see a million of them. Love the navigation,(do wish it was a satellite system and not hdd) on star is a great."

"We love the back-up camera, it has saved us from a few accidents with civilians/inanimate objects. Plus the radar alerts for blind spots in side mirrors."
