Buick LaCrosse, Future Vehicle
#1 of 23 Buick LaCrosse:General future
Oct 18, 2006 (6:28 pm)
Buick may mean quiet elegance to most folks, but things promise to get
pretty noisy at General Motors' entry-level luxury division later this year
with the introduction of two nifty new models – the Enclave and the
The Enclave is an all-new luxury crossover and the LaCrosse Super will be
an upscale version of Buick's intermediate car. Super is, of course, the
Buick series name that for years denoted a top-of-the-line luxury car that
was second only to the vaunted Roadmaster in terms of creature comforts.
Meanwhile, Buick's ushering in its 2007 model line with some cosmetic
changes, trim adjustments and options enhancements.
The LaCrosse, Buick's increasingly popular mid-sized family car gets new,
sportier cluster graphics with red pointer gauges, Harvest Burl wood trim,
a steering wheel with Buick's tri-shield emblem, and two new choices of
cloth seat fabric – gray and neutral. Four new exterior colors also have
been added: Stone Grey Metallic, Midnight Amethyst, Midnight Blue Metallic
and Red jewel Metallic. Power comes from a 200 horsepower V-6 for the CX
and CXL models and a 240 horsepower V-6 for the V-6.

Thanks for the details on the new Buicks. Before my wife purchased her 2005 LaCrosse CXL, she took both a new Lexus ES330 and RX330 on 24 hour test drives. She likes the ease of entry and exit from the RX330 crossover vehicle, but she bought the LaCrosse as she did not like the current Buick crossover vehicle. The luxury Enclave sounds like a real competitor to the Lexus. I look forward to seeing one in person.

The future of the LaCrosse will probably involve a two fold evolution. Movement to the Epsilon II chassis and continued refinement of the interior and appearance to bring it inline with the great Buicks that the Chinese are being offered. Also, add some factory ventholes!

I don't know how old this information is, but here's a link for the limited production 2008 Buick LaCrosse Super:
I called my local dealer to confirm it, but he said he didn't know anything about it. I asked him to check around and call me back when he heard anything. He called me back about an hour later and said he talked with the local Buick factory rep. The rep said yes, it's all true. Apparently Pontiac is dropping the Grand Prix GXP due to poor sales and the 2008 LaCrosse Super will be getting the same 5.3 small block engine currently available in the Impala SS and Monte Carlo SS. Of course, the LaCrosse Super will have the same suspension and heavy duty transmission as the Pontiac and Chevies. I can't wait to test drive one.

The question is what else did they do to the Super LaCrosse. Hopefully some new features, new fascias (Lucerne type grill).

"Apparently Pontiac is dropping the Grand Prix GXP due to poor sales and the 2008 LaCrosse Super will be getting the same 5.3 small block engine currently available in the Impala SS and Monte Carlo SS."
The GXP is still listed in the 2008 on-line order guide from GM.

They should have used the 300HP DI 3.6L, not the V8...
