Overview Information

A new midsize Buick replaces both the Regal and Century in Buicks lineup. The LaCrosse was designed with an attention to design, perceived quality, performance and quiet refinement. Available in CX, CXL, and CXS trim the LaCrosse is powered by 2 different V-6 engines. The top-line CXS features a 240hp variable valve timing V6.

What Changed:

New midsize replaces both the Regal and Century. Related to the Grand Prix, Buick paid significant attention on noise isolation. Two engines are available. A 200hp V6 and a 240 all-aluminum V6 with variable valve timing.

Official Word:

"LaCrosse is a very important model for Buick. Not only does it set the stage for renewal of our entire car line, but it replaces two models - Regal and Century - that account for almost half of Buick car sales. LaCrosse represents four key attributes that Buick will continue to emphasize: smooth power, elegant design, expertly crafted interiors and a comfortable yet responsive ride." -- Mark Hines, Buick marketing director
