Buick has officially dropped its first teaser for the 2017 LaCrosse and, according to the brand, the vehicle will usher in the “new face” of Buick.
We counted the use of “Avenir” four times in Buick’s official release, and the brand has no problem relating the 2017 LaCrosse design to the downright stunning concept that bowed at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.
“The Avenir concept shattered expectations of what a Buick could be and the 2017 LaCrosse promises to do the same,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Its expressive design represents a break from convention and highlights the progressiveness in all new Buick models.”
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will be the first all-new vehicle from the brand to adopt its new design language and, by 2018, all Buicks will wear the similar styling. Included in the sculptural surfacing of the front fascia is a darkened waterfall grille, connecting the headlamps with plenty of width at the opening. Here, we also see the return of the red, white and blue tri-shield badge, as shown on the Avenir show car as well.
The next-generation LaCrosse will incorporate an all new chassis, based on the E2XX platform, and feature five-link rear suspension. The brand says driving dynamics and Buick’s signature quietness has entered a new threshold with the 2017 LaCrosse.
Expect the latest news and information as we creep towards the 2017 Buick LaCrosse debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.
