As we announced, Buick introduced today the 2014 LaCrosse, an evolution of its luxury sedan that promises to offer a new design but also technological innovation. The 2014 Buick LaCrosse features new front and rear styling, with signature wing-shaped LED daytime running lamps and LED wraparound tail lamps. In side, the vehicle offers new seats, enhanced materials, a redesigned central instrument panel and console and a new Ultra Luxury Interior Package.
Moreover, the interior features company’s next-generation IntelliLink infotainment system, with intuitive controls and natural voice recognition.
In terms of safety, the LaCrosse offers new radar- and camera-based features, which include Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Change Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Automatic Collision Preparation. GM’s patented Safety Alert Seat works with these features, providing seat vibration pulses indicating the direction of a potential crash threat. Adaptive Cruise Control is also offered.
Under the hood, the 2014 LaCrosse is offered in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models and offers two powertrains: a 2.4-liter engine with eAssist light electrification technology or a more powerful 3.6-liter direct-injected V6. Each is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Regarding the Ultra Luxury Interior Package, this offers Sangria seating color and Ebony accents, with semi-aniline leather seats and trim, along with Shadow Tamo Ash wood décor. The Ultra Luxury Interior Package features premium semi-aniline leather, which covers the seats, console armrest and door armrests and is complemented by synthetic suede on the headliner and door pillars. The Sangria contrast color with the Ultra Luxury interior is exclusive to LaCrosse.
