The 2019 Buick LaCrosse Sport Touring won’t snap any necks, but it does provide just a smidge of sportiness. Buick announced the latest addition to the LaCrosse lineup on Tuesday, which joins the standard car and the LaCrosse Avenir.
The LaCrosse Sport Touring, badged “ST,” does away with chrome accents in favor of a body-color grille surround and side vents. Upon closer inspection, onlookers will find a black mesh grille, an ever-so-subtle rear spoiler and ST badging at the rear. 19-inch midnight silver wheels sit at all four corners.
The standard LaCrosse’s eAssist powertrain isn’t available with the ST trim, which leaves the 3.6-liter LGX V6 as the sole powertrain paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine makes 310 horsepower.
Buyers looking at the LaCrosse ST will have the option of White Frost Tricoat, Satin Steel Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat and Ebony Twilight Metallic exterior colors.
Aside from the addition of the ST model, the 2019 LaCrosse Avenir will now feature an air ionizer. The gadget helps eliminate odors and improve air quality.
Pricing for the 2019 LaCrosse ST starts at $40,295, which includes a $995 destination fee. The sedan will reach dealerships this summer.
