2013 Buick LaCrosse: Largely unchanged for the current model year, the 2013 Buick LaCrosse is a mid-size entry-level luxury sedan available with two different engines; a base 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine and an optional 3.6-liter V6. The base engine produces 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission the base LaCrosse achieves an EPA estimated 25 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. For increased performance Buick offers an optional 3.6-liter flex fuel V6 engine that yields 303 hp (paired to the same 6-speed automatic transmission). Available features include 19-inch wheels, halogen HID headlamps, heated-power adjustable mirrors, power sunroof, dual-zone climate control, premium audio system with navigation, hands-free phone capabilities, heated seats, and rear vision camera. Safety features include anti-lock braking, brake assist, advanced airbags, rear parking assist, rear-seat thorax airbags, traction control, vehicle stability assist, and tire pressure monitoring. The LaCrosse is backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less
The Buick LaCrosse receives minor updates for 2013. Buick has streamlined their trim packages, now offering only five instead of seven. The HID Headlights are new, now featuring a distinct blue ring effect, while some of the switchgear inside has been changed for easier use. Power steering on V6 models is no longer hydraulically operated, Buick instead opting for an electric system. IntelliLink is also standard across all models, meaning the bright 7" high definition screen is now centrally located in the interior of all LaCrosse models.
Attractive styling; attractive, well-designed interior; upscale ride and refinement; powerful V6 engine available; good value
The 2013 Buick LaCrosse has both style and attitude, with a curvy, bold look and advanced interior design. Ride, handling and overall refinement are up to world-class standards. From behind the wheel, the LaCrosse stands on the same high ground in terms of features and the driving experience, as many luxury-brand cars, yet costs thousands less. Base models start at just about $30,000, but higher end models, fully loaded with tech features can rise above the $40,000 mark.
