The Stylish and Sporty 2018 Buick LaCrosse
Buick’s flagship sedan is making waves with its bold exterior stylings and exciting new powertrain options. Check out the 2018 Buick LaCrosse’s fresh new options, including electric motors added to the rear wheels, and new interior tech that makes your commute easier and more comfortable. Then stop by our dealership today to take a test drive of last year’s model and we will help you find the best deal possible.
The Buick LaCrosse comes equipped with a standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine paired to a small electric motor and backed by a six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel drive. Altogether this earns an impressive 194 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque and gives you 25 miles to the gallon in the city, 35 on the highway. But if you have a need for speed, you can upgrade to the 3.6-liter V6 engine that cranks out a whopping 310 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. This engine earns 21 mpg in the city, 30 on the highway and is paired with a silky smooth nine-speed automatic transmission.
Inside the 2018 LaCrosse, you get all of Buick’s traditionally iconic creature comforts along with some modern touches to make your daily drive more convenient. You could sit in heated and massaging leatherette-trimmed seats and grip a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel as you settle in for the long haul. You’ll love to take this sedan on road trips thanks to the dual zone climate control and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system with Apple Carplay/Android Auto. And with the available OnStar subscription, you can have turn-by-turn navigation at just the touch of a button so you can always drive with confidence.
Buick gave the new LaCrosse a suite of standard and available safety and driver-assistive features to help you manage every situation on the road. The Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert gives you more visibility than ever before and helps you drive more responsibly. And the Forward Collision Alert scans the area in front of your vehicle and alerts you if you’re approaching the vehicle in front of you too quickly with both an audible and visitation warning so you can react quicker. And the available Front Automatic Braking technology senses when a potential crash is imminent and can even brake for you! The LaCrosse is looking out for you.
