CARS.COM — When Buick’s redesigned 2017 LaCrosse hits dealerships in July, it will start at $32,990 including destination — a price $1,000 more to start than the outgoing 2016 LaCrosse.
As base prices for midsize, front-drive luxury sedans go, the LaCrosse roughly matches the 2016 Acura TLX ($32,635 with shipping) and slots well under the Lincoln MKZ ($36,115) and Lexus ES 350 ($39,050). You might also shop it against a well-equipped Toyota Camry or Honda Accord, furthering Buick’s proposition as a value-luxury alternative.
Standard equipment includes a new 305-horsepower V-6, an eight-speed automatic transmission, xenon headlights, push-button start and an 8-inch touch-screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Options include all-wheel drive, an adaptive suspension, a heated steering wheel and leather upholstery with heated, ventilated and massaging front seats.
Other pricing details are sparse. Buick’s website shows a gussied-up version of the LaCrosse with an as-shown price of about $45,000, but little else is known about the sedan’s trim levels and pricing. Buick spokesman Stuart Fowle told us to expect full pricing in June and unlike with the new Buick Envision SUV, all trim levels will be available at launch.
