Those looking for sleek, comfortable, and high-performance large sedan should probably check out the all-new 2017 Buick LaCrosse. For 2017, the LaCrosse is highlighted by features such as top-crash test score, a sleek and upscale interior, whisper-quite cabin at speed, a luxurious ride quality, and an available AWD option. The Buick LaCrosse 2017 release date should be expected before this fall probably as a 2017 year model.
Being Buick’s flagship sedan, the 2017 LaCrosse offers plenty of admirable features including ample interior accommodations in addition to the above-mentioned features. It’s a peach on the road and rivals some of the best executive-class luxury sedans around.
Under the hood, the new 2017 Buick LaCrosse comes with a decent 3.6L V6 engine and a mild hybrid powertrain termed “aAssist”. The standard V6 engine routes an impressive output rated at 304 horsepower and 264 lbs. ft. of torque to the ground, while the hybrid makes use of a 2.4L four-cylinder an electric motor to yield a combined power output rated at 182 horsepower and 172 pounds-ft. of torque.
Besides the decent outputs, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse interior is also another attraction that should bring would-be buyers in droves. The overall cabin design is sleek, and well-designed with the highlights being the well-laid out center console and the comfortable and supportive seats. The infotainment system has been updated.
Despite a seemingly impressive 2017 Buick LaCrosse CV, there’re other competitors in its class that also boasts of niche features, too. Some of these include the 2017 Chevrolet Impala, the Lexus ES, and the Toyota Avalon.
The 2017 Toyota Avalon price starts from around $32,000. Specs include a quiet and upscale interior with spacious accommodation, a slew of desirable optional features, a large trunk, and laudable fuel economy ratings. Its source motivation comes from a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 268 hp and 248 lbs. ft. of torque, which enables it run from 0-60 mph in just 6.4 seconds. The Toyota Avalon 2017 release date is still a subject of heated debates by industry pundits, but my crystal ball tells me it should most likely occur before this fall judging by the numerous Avalon spy pictures hovering around in industry circles.
