The 2017 Buick LaCrosse is a full-size sedan that starts at just above $32,000. The Preferred and Essence trims cost well over $35,000. Featuring all-wheel drive and other advanced amenities, the Premium edition can be purchased for more than $41,000. This sophisticated model is available with the Dynamic Drive Package and Driver Confidence Package.
Under the hood, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse includes a 3.6 L V6 engine that whips out 310 horsepower. This six-cylinder engine generates 282 pound-feet of torque when the tachometer reaches 5,200 RPM. Direct injection ensures that a precise volume of fuel flows into this powerful engine block.
This Buick sedan comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission system, which includes the Driver Shift Control. A conventional front-wheel drive is paired with this advanced transmission system. Available only in the Premium model, the all-wheel drive system includes the Active Twin Clutch for optimum handling. This sophisticated AWD maximizes traction on low-friction surfaces.
When equipped with the Continuously Variable Real-Time Damping with Sport Mode, the LaCrosse offers a truly smooth ride. The five-link rear suspension system also absorbs harsh vibrations from the road. The front suspension system includes the HiPer struts that offer stiff resistance to shaking. Another high-performance technology in this Buick sedan is the Electronic Grade Braking, which is useful for going down inclined roads.
According to EPA estimates, the Buick LaCrosse gets up to 31 MPG on the highway. Such an impressive rating can be attributed to the Automatic Start/Stop system that shuts the engine off under certain circumstances. For example, the powertrain temporarily shut off when this vehicle comes to a full stop for more than several seconds. Engineered to control the flow of air in the cylinders, the Variable Valve Timing technology is also standard in the car's V6 engine block.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse is furnished with the IntelliLink infotainment system. Featuring a touch-screen interface, this multimedia hub includes GPS navigation with voice recognition. Smartphones can be seamlessly synced with the IntelliLink platform via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. This luxurious Buick sedan even offers a wireless internet connection at 4G LTE speeds.
The Buick LaCrosse's Forward Collision Alert and Front Automatic Braking lower the risk of a front crash. Accidents involving people are also unlikely to occur when the driver reacts to the Front Pedestrian Detection. The Lane Keep Assist and Side Blind Zone Alert provide additional crash-avoidance cues in this luxurious sedan.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Buick Lacrosse invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Buick Lacrosse MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
