It seems Buick has quietly updated its webpage to feature the trim levels, options and pricing for each for the 2017 LaCrosse. Along with the pricing, we have a more solid availability date, too: July 2016 will see the brand’s latest full-size sedan trickle into dealerships.
We’d already received word that the 2017 Buick LaCrosse would start at $32,065 (plus destination), but should you opt for additional creature comforts, the LaCrosse may be optioned out up to $43,265 for the Premium AWD trim.
In between the spectrum of base and Premium AWD are Preferred, Essence and Premium FWD, each starting at $36,065, $38,665 and $41,065 respectively.
Base 2017 LaCrosse sedans will arrive with HID headlamps, 18-inch aluminum wheels, 4G LTE WiFi with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and an eight-inch touchscreen unit. No additional options exist for the base, leading us to believe the Essence trim will be the volume seller. The Preferred trim also received no additional options, other than a cargo net and power tilt/telescoping wheel.
The Essence trim brings in, well, the trimmings. Articulating headlamps, perforated leather seats, auto-dimming review mirror, heated and memory seats all come standard in the 2017 LaCrosse Essence. A sunroof and sun shade are optional, as well as a premium sound and navigation package and side blindzone alert with rear cross traffic alert.
Finally, standard on the Premium FWD and AWD models are driver and front passenger lumbar seating with massage function, a heated steering wheel, safety alert seat and a heads-up display. The safety package is also standard on Premium trims. Premium sound and navigation, plus the sunroof, are still optional.
Does the 2017 LaCrosse seem well loaded to you? Or were you expecting more at this price point? Check out the entire trim break down here, and discuss below.
