As somebody that averages around 30,000 miles a year in driving, gas prices are viewed as the devil. Especially if the vehicle of choice is something of the full-sized variety. However, those fortunate to own a Buick LaCrosse equipped with eAssist seem to be enjoying themselves, considering the size of the car and its 36 MPG highway rating.
That appealing combo has actually resulted in bringing a lot of attention to Buick dealerships, with more customers going for the eAssist model in February 2012 than any other month prior. The eAssist powertrain is standard on the 2012 LaCrosse with a suggested starting price of $31,045 including destination. Buick recently announced that eAssist technology will be standard on the 2013 Regal as well.
