The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is a midsize sedan offered in 5 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $29,565. For that price, it mainly competes with the Kia Cadenza, the Toyota Avalon, and the Nissan Maxima. Between 5 trims, the LaCrosse offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.5L Inline-4 engine making 194 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 310 horsepower-making 3.6L V6 engine. There is a choice between a 6-Speed Automatic transmission and a nine speed automatic transmission. The LaCrosse reaches 60 MPH from zero in 7.4 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 5.6 seconds with the 3.6L V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the LaCrosse can manage a combined fuel economy between 24 and 29 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 6 striking colors of the LaCrosse really pull you towards itself.
