The 2017 Buick LaCrosse isn’t going to be introduced for at least another year, but the rumors and speculations about it are growing bigger by the day. The new generation of the famous full-size sedan is said to bring numerous changes, which will concern both the style and the performance. The new 2017 LaCrosse was spotted testing under a really heavy camouflage, which only made the fans more anxious while waiting for the premiere. However, the details about the new model are scarce. There are some rumors and speculations, as well as a few bits of confirmed info, but it seems too early to make any final judgments. What we do know for sure, however, is that the 2017 Buick LaCrosse plans to completely outshine its competition as its redesign will leave “no stone unturned”. Therefore, if you have a deeper pocket and are in need of (or want to own for no reason but pleasure) a powerful and luxurious sedan such as this one, be sure to wait for the new and improved 2017 Buick LaCrosse.
Design & Basic Structure
First things first. The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will be underpinned by a P2XX platform. The P2XX platform is an upgrade version of the E2XX platform, which is lighter and better than the latter one. Thanks to this underpinning, the new model will be lighter than its predecessor, which will result in improved performance and probably better fuel economy. Some sources claim that the new P2XX platform will reduce the LaCrosse’s weight for up to 300 pounds.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will also come with improved exterior design. The new sedan is said to come with an appearance more similar to the Avenir Concept. Of course, the new 2017 LaCrosse will not look exactly the same as the aforementioned concept, but it will probably inherit some of its smooth lines and details. The new 2017 Buick LaCrosse will, therefore, look more modern and assertive, but it will at the same time keep its recognizable elegant and powerful stance.
2017 Buick LaCrosse Powertrain Setup
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse powertrain setup is currently unknown. However, there are some rumors about it. According to some speculations, the new luxury sedan might be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine, while other rumored units are twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 and a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 mill. As you can see, all of the rumored options would make a great choice. In addition, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse will probably use an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
2017 Buick LaCrosse Release Date & Price Range
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse will probably have its premiere during next year. The premiere is rumored to take place at one of the USA biggest car shows. However, some sources think the 2017 Buick LaCrosse might debut in China instead, as it is planned to be launched on their market as well. More information should be available later this year. As for the price, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse will probably cost slightly under $40,000 for the entry level model, while the most advanced one will push this number over $50,000.
