Back in February, Buick offered up a little detail on what we can expect for the 2014 LaCrosse. At the time, the company talked about the quieter interior that was designed for occupant comfort and to help the next generation IntelliLink infotainment system perform better. This week Buick has gone official with a lot more details for the new 2014 LaCrosse.
On the outside, Buick describes the car as having a refreshed exterior with a wing-shape LED lighting package. The car also gets new advanced safety technologies as standard including the eight-inch color display instrument panel, camera and radar-based safety features, and the next generation IntelliLink. The LaCrosse is a full-size sedan and the car gets new seats, enhanced materials, a redesigned central instrument panel and console, and an available Ultra Luxury Interior Package.
The safety systems that are radar and camera-based include Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Change Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Automatic Collision Preparation. The vehicle also features adaptive cruise control that can stop the vehicle in heavy traffic and accelerate the vehicle again.
The vehicle can be purchased in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive models with two available powertrains. The vehicle can be had with a 2.4-liter engine featuring eAssist light electrification technology or a 3.6-liter direct-injected V-6 engine. Both of those engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The public debut of the 2014 LaCrosse will happen at the New York International Auto Show running from March 29 through April 7. The vehicle will be available on dealer showrooms this summer.
