Click Here To Information on the 2013 LaCrosse

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat LaCrosse full-size sedan sees a number of updates for the 2014 model year. Exterior styling tweaks modestly alter the sedan's appearance while the interior gets new seats and revised dashboard controls with a simpler interface. New electronic safety aids are also available. Powertrain choices include a mild-hybrid four-cylinder powertrain or an available V-6 engine.

Exterior

Exterior styling changes are concentrated on the front and rear of the 2014 LaCrosse. The headlights and grille are a little bolder, and all LaCrosse models have active grille shutters that close at highway speeds to improve aerodynamics. The taillights are now more closely tied to the trunklid styling. Otherwise, the sedan still retains the general appearance of its predecessor. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch alloy wheels; 18-, 19- or 20-inch wheels available
  • Available bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with LED daytime running lights
  • LED taillights

Interior

Much like its smaller sibling, the Regal, the LaCrosse's updates for the 2014 model year address the car's worst issues. Specifically, the center controls for the audio and climate systems have an all-new layout that's easier to understand and does away with the similarly shaped tile buttons that made the old LaCrosse's dashboard controls more difficult to use than they needed to be. Interior features include:

  • Dashboard and instrument panel screens measure 8 inches
  • IntelliLink entertainment system with tablet-style interface
  • Available Ultra Luxury Interior Package features simulated-suede headliner, leather upholstery and ash wood trim
  • Available Bose premium audio

Under the Hood

The LaCrosse comes standard with a mild-hybrid drivetrain that consists of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, an electric motor/generator powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and a six-speed automatic transmission. Total output is 182 horsepower. Also available is a 304-hp, 3.6-liter V-6, which also works with a six-speed automatic. Mechanical features include:

  • Both engines run on regular gas, and the V-6 can also use E85 ethanol
  • Front- or all-wheel drive
  • Available adaptive suspension

Safety

Standard safety features include eight airbags, an electronic stability system, traction control and antilock brakes. Available safety features include:

  • Blind spot warning
  • Lane departure warning
  • Forward-collision warning, with available automatic braking
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Backup camera
  • Lane Change Alert, which warns of distant but fast-approaching cars in the next lane
  • Safety Alert Seat, which works with the safety systems to warn the driver by pulsing the seat cushion
  • Adaptive cruise control with full-stop capability

2013 Buick LaCrosse

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat Buick LaCrosse is intended to compete with premium or near-luxury models like the Volkswagen Passat. It was designed in the U.S. and China, where Buick has a significant presence. Buyers can choose from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with fuel-saving eAssist hybrid technology or a 3.6-liter V-6.

New for 2013

For 2013, Buick's IntelliLink system, which uses Bluetooth or the USB port to pair a smartphone to the touch-screen stereo and stream music from Pandora Internet Radio or Stitcher SmartRadio, is now standard.

Other changes for 2013 include new blue rings on the xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights and a repositioned rearview mirror for better visibility.

Exterior

The LaCrosse's grille is large and bold, and a distinctive accent line runs along the side from headlight to taillight. It's a stronger statement than the previous generation, but Buick hasn't redefined itself to an extent that will turn off traditional buyers. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch wheels; 18- and 19-inch wheels available
  • Available fog lights
  • Available side mirrors with integrated turn signals
  • Available adaptive damping suspension

Interior

The interior is modern with features such as ambient LED lighting and USB connectivity. There are high-quality materials and contrasting-color stitching. The backseat truly has room for three passengers. Optional interior features include:

  • Navigation system
  • Dual-display backseat entertainment system
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Harman Kardon-brand surround-sound system
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Power rear sunshade

Under the hood

The LaCrosse comes with one of two engines: a 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with eAssist hybrid technology or a 303-hp, 3.6-liter V-6. Both are direct-injection designs, a relatively new development in gasoline engines that portends good gas mileage for the engines' size and power. Mechanical features include:

  • Both engines can run on regular gas, and the V-6 can use E85 ethanol
  • Standard six-speed automatic transmission
  • Front-wheel drive standard; all-wheel drive available with V-6

Safety

The LaCrosse has front- and side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. Antilock brakes and an electronic stability system with traction control are also standard, as is the OnStar communication system with six months of free service. Optional safety features include:

  • Adaptive headlights
  • Blind spot warning system

LaCrosse eAssist

In the LaCrosse eAssist, Buick engineers paired a 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder with an advanced lithium-ion battery pack and a 15-kilowatt electric motor. The result is EPA-estimated gas mileage of 25/36 mpg city/highway. This technology enables regenerative braking, electric-power assist during acceleration, fuel cut-off during deceleration and a stop-start function for the gas engine. The LaCrosse eAssist also has improved underbody aerodynamics, low-rolling-resistance tires and electronically controlled shutters in the lower grille that close at higher speeds to direct more air over the car.
