Although Buick has been busy with their crossover line, it doesn’t mean that they have forgotten the development of the new 2018 Buick Lacrosse. In fact, developments and progress have been underway, focusing on the midsize sedan changes and appeal. Buick understands that Lacrosse has been an important line in their production and they have been doing so since 2005 so they have improved the look and had a complete redesign work for this stylish sedan.

Some of the changes happening to this Lacrosse are the weight reduction up to 300 pounds, more spacious interior cabin, and also a design on the body – increasing the aesthetic appeal and also performance. Although it would be nice if some parts remain the same – the overall design has this slight European touch and feel with a flair of luxury and elegance.

Changes

Up until now, the company hasn’t mentioned any detail plans of their work. They haven’t made the official release concerning their new production, let alone the details of the structure. But it will be nice if some of the signature style will remain untouched, such as the cabin, the foglights, and the 18 inch wheels. If they can improve the features like leather seating, the rearview camera, and others, it would be even better.

Engine

The new 2018 Buick Lacrosse will be running on the V6 engine with 3.6 liter capacity that is delivering 310 hp of power. Because it is coming with the automatic stop and go system, the engine is able to reach 31 mpg for the highway – which isn’t too bad after all. So far, the vehicle has been able to pass the test, including the Top Safety test but they are going to see if they can improve it.

Price and Release Date

Although with the updates and changes and all, it is still expected that the price tag for the new 2018 Buick Lacrosse won’t be different from the current model. It is possible that the new Lacrosse will start from $33,000 for the base trim and reaching $44,000 for the higher end type. It s highly likely that the new Lacrosse will be ready at dealerships around fall 2017 but it still waits for official confirmation.

In the midsize sedan market, Lacross is going to compete against Lincoln MKZ (with tag price around $36,000), Lexus ES 350 (from around $40,000), and also Nissan Maxima (from $34,000). Will 2018 Buick Lacrosse be able to handle the tough competition?
