2012 Buick LaCrosse
2012 Buick LaCrosse
The LaCrosse was redesigned for 2010, but it has gotten more interesting since then. The car's styling is aimed at both the Chinese and the U.S. markets, as Buick now sells more cars in China than it does here. Because a car like this is often chauffeur driven in China, the LaCrosse has generous rear-seat legroom, and buyers can maximize the rear-seat experience by opting for the available DVD entertainment system. Up front, the driver faces a dash that is highly styled, with plenty of chrome, intricate gauges, and a configurable screen. Buick's IntelliLink (available midyear) promises enhanced interaction with a smart phone. IntelliLink is new for 2012, but the LaCrosse's more significant changes are found under the hood. Whereas the base engine was previously an underwhelming V-6, the new one is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder supplemented by a battery-powered electric motor. This so-called mild hybrid (the motor can't power the car on its own) delivers fuel economy of 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, figures that are better than many compacts'. At the same time, the eAssist system makes the four-cylinder surprisingly responsive and has impressive refinement. The V-6 has been bumped to 303 hp and is your only choice if you want all-wheel drive, and, in fact, we recommend AWD with the bigger engine because the softly sprung LaCrosse can easily unload its front wheels during acceleration. Higher-trim V-6 models (Premium III and Touring) use GM's HiPer Strut front suspension to minimize torque steer.

In its push for vehicle electrification, GM has announced it plans on selling 500,000 vehicles with eAssist or plug-in technology by 2017. “Our commitment to eAssist is unwavering,” said Mary Barra, Senior VP Global Product Development in a release. The mild hybrid technology has proliferated across the automaker’s portfolio and landed in the Buick LaCrosse, Regal, and Chevrolet Malibu. The upcoming 2014 Chevrolet Impala, scheduled to debut next year, will also employ the light electrification technology. GM also says it’s on track for selling more than 50,000 vehicles with electrification this year between the Volt and eAssist-equipped cars. The Volt alone has already sold 19, 309 examples through October, and its plug-in technology will also play a major role in GM’s future. “The unique propulsion technology pioneered in the Volt – the same technology that will be featured in the Cadillac ELR – will be a core piece of our electrification strategy going forward,” said Barra. Already in the books is a plug-in electric version of the Spark EV slated to go on sale next year in the U.S. and South Korea, with other markets to be later announced.

Buick has a surprisingly efficient and smooth-driving machine in the LaCrosse eAssist. The LaCrosse's large size doesn't do much to change the perception that Buick is for older customers, but there's a reasonably up-to-date infotainment system inside, and the exterior styling is far more radical than Buicks of a few years ago.

Hybrid or V-6? That's the choice Buick is offering LaCrosse buyers for 2012, and neither option is extra-cost.
Buick LaCrosse GL Concept Cockpit
Although Buick may be using the term concept fairly loosely here, the LaCrosse GL Concept – which is slated to make its full unveiling next week at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show – gives a glimpse into the brains of Buick’s designers and the future palette of the tri-shield brand.
