It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the 2017 Buick LaCrosse finally has a configurator. The official Buick website has fired the configurator up ahead of its late summer introduction, and we had some fun optioning out our own 2017 LaCrosse.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse begins at base trim, arriving with 18-inch wheels, the 3.6-liter LGX V6 engine, an eight-inch touchscreen unit, HID headlamps and one of the first applications of GM’s Electronic Precision Shift. The starting price here is a reasonable $32,990 plus other fees and taxes.
Moving right along, we selected the top of the line, LaCrosse Premium trim. $41,990 gets you quite a few features including a heated steering wheel, four-way lumbar front seats with massage function, heads-up display, a suite of safety features and even a set of active lower grille shutters for optimized aerodynamics.
Check the box for all-wheel drive and the price climbs $3,000 on the Premium trim to $44,990. We are a tad shocked to see AWD is only offered on the Premium trim. That means approaching $50,000 to gain power to all four wheels.
Also, if you were planning to be expressive with your color choice, we’re sorry to let you down. The only hues not offered at an extra charge are Black Onyx and Summit White. Every other color choice costs at least $395 more, creeping up to $995 extra for White Frost Tricoat.
