2018 Buick LaCrosse Updates

A number of 2018 Buick LaCrosse updates have been announced! The vehicle will be available here at Danny Len Buick GMC this fall. Make sure to come in for a test drive when it arrives, but until then, here’s some info on the new LaCrosse.

2018 Buick LaCrosse Updates

  • Buick is adding three new exterior colors for the 2018 LaCrosse: Dark Slate Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat, and Satin Steel Metallic.
  • The new 2018 LaCrosse will get eAssist light electrification, adding an electric motor to the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Buick says this will boost city fuel efficiency by a whopping 19 percent. (The 2017 Buick LaCrosse’s standard engine manages an 18 MPG City rating*, so a 19 percent improvement could take it to more than 21 MPG in the city.)
  • That motor will get its power from a 24-cell air-cooled 0.45 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This means the new LaCrosse will boast features like regenerative braking, torque-assisted launch, and super smooth Stop/Start functionality.
  • In other performance news, LaCrosse models that instead get their motivation from the 3.6-liter V6 will now be available with a nine-speed automatic gearbox.
  • Buick is adding all-wheel drive to the Essence trim level.
