2017 Buick LaCrosse Premium: Not your grandparents’ ride
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a Buick? Now, think of something or someone a lot cooler. The 2017 Buick LaCrosse has a redesign that gives it a younger appeal. This is totally different than our grandparents’ Buick. Its sleek, stylish design elements offer consumers a more luxurious, upscale feel in this full-size sedan.
Each trim features GM’s 3.6L V6 engine giving you just the right amount of horsepower — a hefty 305. You will also be impressed with the fuel economy with an EPA-estimated rating of 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
The LaCrosse’s impressive long list of features includes the Intellilink touch screen and entertainment system, the 4G LTE Wi-FI hot pot, power seats, keyless entry and backup camera.
The base price for the 2017 model is $32,990. Other levels of trim include the Preferred at $36,065, the Essence model starting at $38,665 and the Premium. Giving you all the luxury you need in a vehicle is the Premium model we tested, which was priced at $48,395. Two things you will notice immediately is how smoothly it drives as well as its quietness. This trim is equipped with the power sunroof with second-row skylight, rear sunshade, navigation, Bose stereo.
Overall, the LaCrosse handles quite well. The update from the previous models makes it a more appealing ride — inside and out!
