2012 Buick LaCrosse Review

Elevate your ride to a whole new level with the 2012 Buick LaCrosse. From the curved side sweep spear to the headlamps and waterfall grille the LaCrosse ties all the details together in one uninterrupted line. The new LaCrosse looks powerful and feels even more so with it’s available 303 Horse Power 3.6 liter V6 engine. Best of all it uses less fuel to deliver the same amount of horsepower. Warm tinted chrome details. Dark poplar wood appliqués. French seamed stitching and custom leather appointed seating. Even cool blue ambient lighting to calm the cabin. Quiet Tuning inside the Lacrosse was developed to reduce block and absorb outside noise. You’ll savor the peaceful and luxurious cabin. Lacrosse’s available Head-Up Display allows you to see instrumentation without taking your eyes off the road. On Star’s Automatic Crash response has built in sensors in the Lacrosse that can automatically alert OnStar when you are in a crash and send emergency personnel to your exact location. The 2012 Buick Lacrosse a step ahead of the rest.
