Wow... my 5.7L powered car gets alost as good mileage and has way more torque.
Not a bad looking car IMO though.

Side and rear views are hot! But the front is complete fail. Interior looks absolutely huge, so I'm sure big Americans will like it.

A sweet replacement of the aging Buick Allure. Will probably be called Allure in Canada. Benny, remember thats US MPG, not Canadian. The AWD model will be a welcome addition to the Buick Lineup (about time).

I will take mine in black please!

It looks nice, not my taste, so I don't think I would consider buying one but I think a lot of people will like it

I mentioned in another thread, that US EPA fuel economy ratings have been changed.

In the Canadian system it would equal around 32-34 highway mpg.

Can you imagine all the 70+ year olds who buy Buicks trying to back that thing up in the dark??? Looks like pretty lousy rear visibility.

this may help.

LaCrosse’s intelligent technologies also work to deliver a 360-degree field of vision behind the steering wheel, for a greater feeling of comfort, security and safety. It starts with the available head-up display in the windshield, allowing the driver to monitor speed while keeping his or her eyes on the road. At night, the available adaptive lighting package can direct the high-intensity discharge headlight beams up to 15 degrees for enhanced illumination of the road and its curves.

LaCrosse offers Side Blind Zone alert that notifies the driver if a vehicle in adjacent lanes is traveling in the driver’s blind spot. The LaCrosse is also available with a rear view camera, with the display integrated into the navigation system screen.

Lexus rip off for sure...even the exhaust trim is Lexus rip off.
That thing is just another Buick. Ugly and chromes are cheesy. It's not bad for a Buick, however I would rather have something else.

The only decent domestic sedans are Cadillac CTS and Chrysler 300C.

Looks pretty nice. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. GM is making some of the best vehicles they have ever made, and some of the best vehicles period.

I know that will piss off the guys who hate Anything that isn't a honda product or toyota, but I think it is true. They have pinched off some loads in the past, but they have really upped thier game, and public perception just needs to catch up.
