A redesign for 2008, the LaCrosse is a four-door full-size family sedan offered with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 200 horsepower, linked to a four-speed automatic transmission. Those opting for more power can choose the 3.6-liter V6 that increases the power to 240. Also new is the return of the "Super” nameplate to the Buick lineup, with the LaCrosse Super that features a 5.3-liter V8 engine generating 303 horsepower, along with magneride suspension and Bilstein shocks that propel the LaCrosse from 0-60 in less than six seconds.Read more Read less

Four new exterior colors join the line for 2008: Scarlet Red, Gold Mist Metallic, Dark Mocha Metallic, and Dark Slate Metallic.

The 2008 Buick LaCrosse ranks as one of the most comfortable mid-size sedans, with seating for up to six adults, a very quiet interior, and smooth, responsive engines. The new Super model, with its V8 engine, brings a new sporty edge to the model that should appeal to buyers who wouldn't have otherwise considered a Buick.
