Buick revealed the 2014 LaCrosse on Monday. The company's biggest sedan gets new interior design, more safety and technology features, and a mild exterior revamp.
The new LaCrosse will continue with either the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with eAssist or the 304-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 LaCrosse will be introduced this week at the New York auto show, along with the 2014 Buick Regal.
On the outside, the 2014 Lacrosse' front fascia is new with a sculpted hood and more prominent waterfall grille. Active grille shutters close on the highway for better fuel economy. The headlights are also new, with wing-shaped LEDs.
Inside, the LaCrosse has a new instrument panel and a floor console with extra storage. The seats are also new, as are the door panels and many of the interior controls. The Ultra Luxury Interior Package adds a synthetic suede headliner and pillar accents, semi-analine leather seats and wood trim.
Buick upgraded the infotainment system on the LaCrosse with the next generation of its IntelliLink system. It now features swipe-and-drag controls like a tablet, similar to Cadillac's CUE system. Buttons have been pared down from 17 to seven.
