Take a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 182-hp and couple it with a 15-hp electric motor to get better fuel economy (you can change this to the 304 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 at an extra charge with no hybrid functions). Chrome alloy accents the roominess of the interior, which also features the IntelliLink touchscreen electronics interface with Bluetooth capabilities. The remote start feature is fun but unnecessary. The high-resolution center screen has been lauded and lambasted for its finicky aperture. Top safety ratings are standard fit and fare with Buicks. The interesting active grille shutters on the front actually close up when traveling at high rates of speed, supposedly increasing MPG and aerodynamics. One of the key selling points – the powered driver’s seat with lumbar adjustments and optional leather seating aside – of the Lacrosse is the quietness that it offers. The carmaker has added special laminate to the glass and even sound absorbing baffles in the car itself. Sure, it’s quiet. Sure it is roomy. The sedan does borrow a bit from the big sedans of America’s treasured past. Perhaps a bit too much for the average modern driver. With a 4-year/50,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and 24 months of included maintenance, it does have something to offer, yet that something is also secluded to a very specific age group.
