The rumors about the 2016 Buick LaCrosse say that the new redesigned sedan will have its premiere in the autumn next year, followed with its release at the beginning of 2016. The new model’s changes are still being kept in the dark, but some leaks and speculations believe that the new model will bring more than just cosmetics updates. The 2016 LaCrosse is said to have a new, fully reshaped exterior followed by an amazing and luxurious cabin. Both of these will be based on the famous Elmiraj concept. In addition, the 2016 sedan will use a new Omega II platform and a possible new engine, a twin-turbo unit for a better performance. We shall stress this one more time, there is not much information released for the public, so some details of the redesign are still unknown, but where there’s smoke, there’s fire. With this in mind, although the aforementioned might be false, we are sure that the 2016 redesign will affect the mentioned areas of the car, bringing a true surprise once the new model is released.
2016 Buick LaCrosse Redesign
The new 2016 Buick LaCrosse redesign is said to be based on the Elmiraj concept. This concept brings couple of qualities along. Firstly, it uses the lightweight Omega II platform, which will reduce the sedan weight while providing the necessary underpinning and hence improving its performance, agility, stability and fuel economy. Secondly, the Elmiraj concept has already been presented some time ago, so the details it brings are well known and absolutely amazing. The new model might, therefore, feature some of these great tweaks. Of course, the new model hasn’t been released yet, or presented to the public, so these are all speculations, but the possible scenario for the 2016 Buick LaCrosse is that it could inherit its beautiful LED headlights and a new shiny grille. In addition, this concept has a fantastic fluid and aerodynamic body line, so this could be another plus for the 2016 sedan. Moreover, the new LaCrosse could have a slight dimensions change, so it could be a bit bigger than the current model. This would mean more comfort for the passengers and more space for their cargo. Other details about the 2016 model are still unknown.
2016 Buick LaCrosse Engine Options
The 2016 Buick LaCrosse might get a new GM 3.6-liter LF3 TwinTurbo V-6 engine that produces 420 horsepower and 430lb-ft of torque. This is not confirmed information, but we are keeping our fingers crossed. Another possible powertrain is the hybrid one. This powerplant, called the eAssist hybrid system, would consist of a 2.4-liter EcoTec direct-injected engine that generates 182 horsepower and an electric motor. Once again, these are only speculations, but that doesn’t mean that they are certainly false, but we should wait a bit more to see whether the manufacturer will make such moves.
2016 Buick LaCrosse Release Date And Price
The 2016 Buick LaCrosse will be presented to the public in the autumn 2015, while its release is scheduled for the beginning of 2016. As for the price, the exact figure is still not announced, but some semi-reliable estimation would be possible to make in some time from now when we get more information about the redesign.
