Sharing is caring!

The new 2018 Buick Lacrosse was revealed during this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. According to Buick, the 2018 Buick Lacrosse was inspired by the Buick Avenir concept and it comes with “an inspiring new design”.

In our opinion, this is a major upgrade on the Buick Lacrosse and that it’s all new design can be incorporated on all the future Buicks.

So, let’s see what you can expect from the 2018 Buick Lacrosse.

As we already mentioned, we saw the release of the new 2018 Buick Lacrosse on the Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this year. However, there isn’t still an official date to see it in the showrooms. Since most manufacturers tend to pick September as a preferred month, we’re pointing there as well.

2018 Buick Lacrosse Price

We are not expecting so see many changes in the price of the new 2018 Buick Lacrosse. The current model starts around $32,000 and goes up to about $42,000. Considering all the market competition, we believe that if there is a rise in the price, it should only be a couple of hundred dollars.

2018 Buick Lacrosse Redesign and Changes

The 2018 Buick Lacrosse has a completely different front grille that suits it perfectly. In what concerns to the LED lights, they are very similar to the Enclave model. The back of the Lacrosse also has some small changes but ultimately, the vehicle is able to maintain the overall look you’re already used to.

2018 Buick Lacrosse Specs

Under the hood, you should expect to see the same 3.6-liter V6 engine that is also the engine that comes with the Enclave model. However, since there were many people complaining about it because they thought it should be more refined, Buick tried to tweak the engine a bit and increase the horsepower as well as to improve the gas mileage. So, they were able to have the V6 engine producing 310 of horsepower.

In what concerns to the transmission, you should be able to see 9-speed automatic transmission.

Although we have heard some rumors that the 2018 Buick Lacrosse could come with another optional engine – the 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder, we don’t believe this is going to happen. And the reason is simple: it produces the exact same number of horsepower of the V6 engine. So, it really doesn’t make sense.

The front-wheel drive continues to be the standard, however, you can opt for the all-wheel drive option as well. The only doubt here is if it is going to be available for all trim levels or just for the higher ones.
