There is many unofficial report mentioned about the possibility for 2018 LaCrosse to go with complete redesign. It will be a luxury sedan. Learning from the concept, it will go with some changes. It seems that they will use new platform with some improvements added. Thanks to the new platform that can cut about 300 pounds from the current weight. We also glad that there will be some improvements for its styling. It is possible to have more refined design with aerodynamic look and sharp lines. It is close to the concept but some changes are possible in the next future depends on the demand. They will keep the iconic waterfall grille but the style will be sportier than ever.

2018 Buick LaCrosse is expected to come with high technologies because at the very first beginning, it is explained by some reliable sources that the company wants to make it as luxury sedan. It means that the cabin design should be their prior to define elegance and comfort. What we expect is the cabin should be updated with some high technology features starting from its infotainment, entertainment and security system. Sadly, there are no many things that we can reveal about this part.

Engine

Under the bonnet, you cannot expect many engine options. The company will only offer 2018 Buick LaCrosse with a single engine that will be 3.6 liter and V6 engine to produce 305 hp and 268 pound-feet of torque which can be improved. They will remove the current four-cylinder, but we don’t know the best one to replace it yet. For the transmission, it seems that they will use eight-speed auto transmission.

Release Date and Price

It is important to come out in the next year at big auto show. The exact date is still hard to get known because no official announcement has been made. We estimate that the price should be around $35,500 for the base and $45,000 for the higher trim of 2018 Buick LaCrosse.
