Buick was fairly blunt regarding the possibility of a hotter Buick LaCrosse GS: it’s not going to happen. Speaking to Jeff Yansenns, lead LaCrosse engineer, we briefly conversed about performance and where it stands in the Buick lineup. Yansenns was a Corvette engineer after all.
He stated the LaCrosse’s unique platform, and what it was engineered to do, really wasn’t designed with hopped up performance in mind. Instead, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse‘s mission is comfort, with relative engagement offered with its 20-inch wheel and tire package.
After all, there is another Buick sedan that has already been bestowed with performance: the Regal GS. We’re expecting big things from a next-generation, 2018 Buick Regal GS and a twin-turbo V6 may be a part of the formula.
