AboutÂ BuickÂ LaCrosse
The Buick LaCrosseÂ is a full-size premium sedanÂ that slotsÂ aboveÂ the compactÂ Buick VeranoÂ andÂ midsizeÂ Buick Regal. The current, third-generationÂ LaCrosseÂ was introduced for the 2017 model year. The vehicle isÂ based on the long wheelbase variant of theÂ GM E2Â platform. TheÂ short-wheelbase variant of the same platform isÂ shared with theÂ sixth-generation Buick RegalÂ andÂ ninth-generationÂ Chevrolet Malibu.
The 2018Â model introduced severalÂ new colors and theÂ GM 9-speed automatic transmissionÂ in place of the 2017 model's 8-speed. It also addedÂ aÂ new standard powertrain in the form of the mild-hybrid 2.5L engine with eAssist coupled withÂ a six-speed automatic transmission. In addition, theÂ 2018 LaCrosse AvenirÂ was introduced to serve as the range-topping model.
The 2019 LaCrosse introduced two new colors and a Sport Touring (1SH) trim. A refresh is expected for the 2020 model year.
The third-generationÂ LaCrosse is builtÂ at the following plants:
