2010 Buick LaCrosse: Luxury Vehicle at a Non-Luxury Price

The reaction is immediate. The moment you see the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, you realize the Buick Renaissance continues. This stunning premium sedan challenges the world’s finest in all the qualities that matter—beauty, brains and an invigorating dose of enthusiasm. All cause for celebration.

You’ll be hard pressed to find where the sweeping lines of LaCrosse begin and end—a Buick design philosophy introduced on the Buick Enclave. Seductive and uninterrupted, they lead you from one sculpted curve to the next.

This sense of continuity is found throughout LaCrosse. Like how the wraparound headlamps flow into the heritage-inspired, yet totally modern, side sweep spears, which seamlessly merge into the LED taillamps. Along the way, they complement Buick’s signature chrome portholes and waterfall grille.

You can go see a LaCrosse for yourself at Paul Sur Buick GMC right here in Valpo.

Check em out on the web, or give them a call at 219-476-3015.

Ask any of the good folks there to show you this sweet sedan, and tell them ValpoLife sent you.

Your personal eye in the sky.

With OnStar standard for one year, you’ve got all the help you’ll need. Wherever your LaCrosse is headed, OnStar can lead the way with voice-guided Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the simplest and smartest navigation system on the road.

If your LaCrosse has the available voice- and touch-screen-activated navigation system, OnStar’s Destination Download delivers directions simply by hitting the blue button and telling the Advisor where you want to go (no need to pull over and enter anything). Or use eNav to find your destination online at MapQuest ® and have it sent directly to LaCrosse’s OnStar system.

And to help you navigate, available XM NavTraffic incorporates real-time road conditions such as congestion, construction and accidents right into your navigation screen. By continuously updating conditions, it can redirect you around trouble spots to find the most efficient route.

No matter where you travel, Automatic Crash Response is ready to send an alert to OnStar in case of a mishap. An Advisor can be immediately connected to see if you’re OK and relay your location to emergency services, even if you can’t respond.

More than skin deep.

Yes, this beauty has a brain. LaCrosse offers the following available technologies that help prove it. There’s a hard drive packing 40 gigs of navigation power and music-storing capacity for thousands of your favorite tunes. Like your home DVR , you can pause and replay live radio. If you’re listening to a game on XM radio and your cell phone rings, hit pause, take your call and pick up the action where you left off after you hang up. The harman kardon® 5.1 Matrix surround system is also musically inclined, with 11 speakers pumping out 384 watts. There’s also a US B port to sync your iPod.® For the ease of hands-free calling, LaCrosse can be equipped with Bluetooth® connectivity. And to entertain back-seat passengers, there are integrated dual rear seatback DVD screens and companion wireless headphones. With the E-Z Key passive entry System, LaCrosse is smart enough to sense your approach without touching the key and automatically turn on the interior lights and unlock the doors. Once inside, starting LaCrosse is as simple as pushing a button.

It Screams Premium

The Buick Design Philosophy of uninterrupted, flowing lines continues within the sculpted LaCrosse interior. The ice-blue ambient lighting embraces its occupants with a sense of calm. Buick’s pioneered QuietTuning process reduces, blocks and absorbs noise to make LaCrosse a quiet escape on the road. A laminated windshield and front side glass, triple door seals, minute body panel tolerances and other acoustical technologies throughout LaCrosse help keep outside noises outside.

Inside LaCrosse, you’ll find highly crafted premium materials like contrasting French-seam stitching, dark poplar wood appliqués and smoked chrome accents. You’re surrounded in style. The front ventilated and heated leather seating surfaces and the heated steering wheel are available for year-round comfort. As is the power rear-window sunshade. And the soft-touch instrument panel with real stitching not only provides a tactile feel, but its “low and away” design gives everyone a sense of openness.

It’s got your back—your front and your sides.

In LaCrosse, available safety features are everywhere. The xenon high-intensity articulating headlamps turn as you turn. They help you see and respond to approaching obstacles sooner for enhanced nighttime cornering. The Head-Up Display allows you to see instrumentation without taking your eyes off the road. And Side Blind Zone Alert uses radar to warn you when another vehicle is in your outside mirror blind spot. You won’t find this combination of collision avoidance technologies on Acura TL, Infiniti G37 or even Lexus ES 350.

Add Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist that alerts you to objects while in reverse with an audible cue, and your back is covered, too. Even the LED turn signal indicators on the side mirrors are designed to provide greater visibility to drivers in blind spot areas around and behind LaCrosse. Just to be safe.

Because what you hear is just as important as what you don’t hear, the most pleasing sounds for shutting a door and operating windows were painstakingly engineered.

Both the 280-hp 3.6L V-6 and the 255-hp 3.0L V-6 (252 hp for AWD) use direct fuel injection and are paired with an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission to maximize performance while still delivering remarkable fuel efficiency. For a more “hands on” experience with this performance, just move the gear selector to the left for the clutchless manual operation of Driver Shift Control. A quick tap is all that is needed for smooth, crisp shifts.

Because it’s a Buick, LaCrosse is fully backed by a comprehensive Bumper-to-Bumper 4-year/50,000-mile Limited Warranty.2 Add to that a transferable 5-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty plus 24/7 Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation.2 Now you’ve got the best coverage in America.

And to make sure your LaCrosse always lives up to its performance promise, Goodwrench service—found exclusively at your Buick dealer—is there to keep that pledge. With all the technology in LaCrosse, Goodwrench technicians have the expertise to care for all of it.

Project roadway.

The intelligent All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system available on the LaCrosse CXL model turns handling into a team sport. It’s one of the most advanced all-wheel-drive systems. Combined with an electronic limited-slip rear differential, AWD helps optimize traction by distributing power to the wheels with the most grip. In low-traction situations, it can send up to 85 percent of engine torque to any wheel (front to back and side to side, as demonstrated above)—many other systems only do front to back. Seamlessly integrated with StabiliTrak and traction control, AWD helps handle dry, wet and snowy roads.

On LaCrosse CXS models, handling intelligence comes from an available real-time adaptive suspension. Reading the road up to 500 times a second, it continuously adjusts to changes in terrain as well as your personal driving style. In fact, when Driver Shift Control is selected, LaCrosse automatically moves into Sport mode to heighten suspension, transmission and steering settings for enhanced control and a confident, enjoyable ride.
