All You Need to Know About the New 2019 Buick LaCrosse

The new 2019 Buick LaCrosse is the epitome of luxury in a traditionally styled sedan that features great technology features like an infotainment system. You’ll love the spacious interior and quiet ride when you drive the newest LaCrosse. This model is the only large sedan still manufactured in the Buick lineup, but you won’t feel as if you’re driving a really bulky vehicle like in the days of old. There is room for up to five passengers, along with 15 cubic feet of storage capacity so you’ll have room for all your passengers as well as belongings. Head down to your local Buick dealership and you can drive off the lot for only an MSRP of $29,570.


Drive in Elegant Style


One thing everyone loves about the LaCrosse is that it features a sleek curved body and elegant interior. In 2017, Buick redesigned the LaCrosse and augmented the bulkier size and driving quality. They enhanced the look of the front end with a sleek looking larger grille and larger headlights. They also made the hood slightly curvier for a softer front-end appearance. The back of the sedan has a streamlined look with tail lights that curve downward, making it recognizable from any angle. The new 2019 model features this same design, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.


You will love the clean lines and classic look in the interior. And while the controls are all conveniently located in the nearly symmetrical dashboard the focal point of the interior design is the high-quality infotainment touchscreen.


High Performance Value


Performance is an important factor to consider when buying a vehicle. You want a reliable car, but one powerful enough to perform on the highway and expertly handle city driving. With the Buick LaCrosse, you have the option of two different powertrains.


The 3.6L V6 engine delivers 310 horsepower. With this powertrain option, you’ll benefit from an estimated 20 MPG when driving in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. You’ll love the smooth ride too. This is possible with the engine that includes Active Fuel management which operates in conjunction with an automatic 9-speed transmission. The available intelligent all-wheel drive with active twin clutch with this engine delivers superior traction ability so you won’t slip in inclement weather. Power is delivered to the wheels to ensure an optimized grip when you are driving on slippery roadways and the enhanced cornering and acceleration capacity is even greater when driving on dry roads.  


If you’re looking for better efficiency then the 2.5L engine, which features innovative eAssist light electrification technology, is perfect for you. This powertrain option provides an estimated 25 MPG in the city and 35 MPG when driving on the highway. Don’t worry about performance with this efficient engine, you’ll still have all the power you want in this full-size sedan.


With both options, you’ll enjoy a high-performance and smooth driving experience in the 2019 Buick LaCrosse. The available Dynamic Drive package maximizes performance with 20-inch aluminum wheels which are great if you want an even more enhanced driving experience. You’ll also benefit with continual variable real-time damping as well as a sport mode selectivity with this Dynamic Drive package.


So Many Trim Choices


There are several exterior paint colors to choose from like Ebony Twilight Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, and Pewter Metallic, so you’ll have plenty of choices. You can also pick from six different trim levels to find the right LaCrosse that is perfect for your lifestyle.  


With the standard trim level, you get dual-zone automatic climate control, so you and the front seat passenger can adjust the heating and cooling for optimized comfort. The front seats are leatherette material and have an 8-way power feature. High-quality HID headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels add to the performance and look of the car so you’ll always turn heads. You’ll stay connected with the 4G LTE mobile hotspot and innovative 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


With the LaCrosse Essence you’ll love the heated front leather seats which are comfortable and very luxurious and with the memory seating function on the driver’s seat your ride will be ready for you every time. This trim level also includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror and articulating headlights for added safety at night.


You do not need to wear gloves on cold wintry days when driving the LaCrosse Premium, which has a heated steering wheel. Other features include the heads-up display, rear cross traffic alert, and front seats that have a massage function, ventilation, and heating.


Drive off the dealership lot in a sportier version of the LaCrosse with the LaCrosse Sport Touring trim level. You’ll love the addition of the black mesh grille, 19-inch black aluminum wheels, rear spoiler, and body-color fender vents.


Get the ultimate in luxury when you purchase the LaCrosse Avenir trim level. This package includes a panoramic moonroof, black mesh grille, wireless smartphone charging, and satellite navigation. The Avenir trim is perfect for you if you want to take full advantage of all that the new 2019 Buick LaCrosse has to offer and do so in style.


Safety is an Important Factor


Regardless of who will be riding with you, you want to drive a vehicle designed for maximized safety. The 2019 Buick LaCrosse received a 5-star safety rating (5 out of 5 stars) from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It also received a “superior” rating for front crash prevention from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This rating is the highest one they award. There are so many safety features in the LaCrosse that were designed to keep you and your passengers safe that you’ll feel right at home.   


With the lane keep assist, you can avoid unintentionally drifting out of your lane and getting into an accident. This feature includes lane departure warning when you are not actively steering and provides slight nudging to keep you in the lane if you don’t react. You can also get seat-bottom haptic pulse vibrations with the safety seat alert feature. This warns you of possible collisions with seat vibrations instead of audible alerts (which can also be turned on if desired).


Decrease the possibility of collisions from hitting vehicles in your blind spot with the lane change alert feature. The rear cross traffic alert helps to prevent collisions when you are backing out of a parking spot or your driveway and don’t see a vehicle approaching from the left or right, both of which are sure to come in handy.


You can take advantage of the ultimate safety feature which is the OnStar Safety and Security. With this feature, you can get automatic crash response and roadside emergency assistance services in the event of a crash so you’ll always be covered.
