Buick is beginning to make a splash with its 2017 LaCrosse, which is set to make its official debut at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show in a few short weeks.
Adding to the official image we saw earlier, which showcased the 2017 LaCrosse’s new front grille and the reinstatement of the red, white and blue tri-shield, is this latest teaser you see above.
The image was published via Buick’s official Twitter channel with the accompanying tweet reading:
If you’ve never experienced love at first sight, you will. The all-new #BuickLaCrosse is coming.
The teaser hosts a darkened silhouette, barely hinting at the head and taillamps, which also seem to house Buick’s new-signature LED lighting.
If we can take a sentence or two to speculate, the rear window placement looks to mirror what we’ve also seen from the upcoming 2017 Opel Insignia, also on deck to become the 2018 Holden Commodore. We may be seeing our first look at what Opel has up its sleeve once we have a better look at the 2017 Buick LaCrosse.
The 2017 LaCrosse will ride on General Motors’ E2xx platform, where it will stretch its legs and lengthen, likely more than the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu, which shares the same base. The 2017 LaCrosse will also be capable of supporting many engine offerings, starting with LTG 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo, climbing up the powertrain rung to the LF3 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. It’s likely each engine will be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
