Buick LaCrosse GS
Buick could introduce a high-performance GS variant of its LaCrosse full-size sedan sometime in the time frame of the 2018-2019 model years.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the Buick LaCrosse GS. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and Buick.

There is currently no concrete evidence that Buick could launch a LaCrosse GS. Speculating about the model, however, is the fact that Buick has launched or is in the process of launching a performance-oriented GS variant of all of its cars, including the Buick Regal GS and Buick Verano GS. This makes the LaCrosse the only Buick not to have a GS variant.
If Buick were to make a LaCrosse GS, here’s what we would it expect from the vehicle:
- Twin-Turbo 3.0L V6 LGW engine making roughly of 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque
- Automatic eight-speed transmission
- Advanced Haldex all-wheel drive (AWD) system tuned for performance and power delivery
- Sport interior with Recaro performance seats
- More aggressive exterior, including a different front fascia, side molding, and rear exhaust treatment
- Large 19-inch wheels and high-performance Brembo brakes
Currently, Buick LaCrosse pictures are not available since the vehicle is not a reality. However, Buick did release the LaCrosse CL concept at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. The vehicle features larger, GS-like wheels and a more luxurious interior, but no performance upgrades. Even so, it’s the closest official images of a LaCrosse GS until Buick makes such a vehicle.
