2013 NY Auto Show Preview: 2014 Buick LaCrosse

During the week leading up to the 2013 New York International Auto Show, The Driving Life will focus on the big news to expect from automakers, including vehicle launches and model updates.

Buick introduced the new 2014 LaCrosse via the General Motors website prior to and in conjunction with the 2013 New York International Auto Show. The General Motors brand is also expected to showcase the new Buick Regal via a live webcast the morning before the auto show opens for press previews.

“We evolved the interior and exterior design, increased luxury amenities and materials, and enhanced the safety and personal technologies to give customers more reasons than ever to rediscover Buick,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of Buick Marketing, in the official press release.

The new LaCrosse goes on sale this summer.

Globally, LaCrosse sales have exceeded 500,000 since its 2009 introduction and U.S. sales topped 57,000 in 2012, making it more popular than many other full-size luxury sedans, including the Lexus ES, Acura TL and Lincoln MKS.

More details on the 2014 LaCrosse from the manufacturer can be found below:

The full-size LaCrosse offers new interior and exterior design cues, advanced safety technologies and enhanced in-vehicle connectivity. New front and rear styling, featuring signature wing-shape LED daytime running lamps and LED wraparound tail lamps, complements its sculpted exterior design. The interior is more contemporary, with new seats, enhanced materials, redesigned central instrument panel and console – and an all-new, available Ultra Luxury Interior Package. The cabin also incorporates Buick’s next-generation IntelliLink infotainment system, with intuitive controls and natural voice recognition.

The 2014 LaCrosse is offered in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models and offers two powertrains: a 2.4L engine with eAssist light electrification technology and a 3.6L direct-injected V-6. Each is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
