In Fort Worth, we’re proud of our Western heritage and have a deep and abiding love for the rugged outdoors, which is reflected in the trucks we drive and our leisure activities. That’s why it might just surprise your neighbors when you pull up in a 2016 Buick LaCrosse. It won’t take long for their surprise to turn into envy when you tell them about its:
Impressive Fuel Economy
Fort Worthians understand the price of oil a little too well and how those fluctuations are loved and hated.
While we all love cheap gas, most people here hate the price of oil falling. Make the best of the fluctuations with a car that gets excellent fuel economy for a large sedan with 25/36 mpg city/highway (eAssist model). The V6 engine gets an EPA-estimated 18/28 mpg city/highway.
Technology in cars today is a common offering, but what’s unusual about the LaCrosse is that a lot of the technology comes standard, such as remote start, a rearview camera, two USB ports, OnStar, IntelliLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display, and Bluetooth.
The car also offers a number of fun and useful technology options, including navigation; WiFi; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; and safety alerts like forward collision alert, blind spot monitoring, parking sensors, and lane change alert. You’ll find that the LaCrosse’s technology offerings make it a car for people who appreciate luxury and desire value.
Buick is known for its comfort, and the 2016 LaCrosse keeps up with that reputation. It provides a quiet, comfortable cabin with seating for five. Upgrade packages include perforated leather as well as heating and cooling options for the seats. If the LaCrosse has one fault, it is that its trunk is smaller than a lot of its competition in the large sedan category. However, you can fold down the back seat to expand the cargo space. In addition to the base package, there are two premium packages and a touring package that offer extra perks both inside and outside the vehicle.
Safety Ratings to Feel Good About
The LaCrosse boasts an impressive eight air bags that come standard, giving it one of the highest safety ratings of the GM line. There are also options to upgrade to the assistive driving technologies mentioned earlier like collision alerts, lane monitoring, and blind spot monitoring. Adaptive cruise control and seat vibrations for inattentive drivers round out the extras.
Responsive Engine and Options
The LaCrosse comes with a V6 3.6L that has a lot of pep for a car of this size. There’s also a LaCrosse eAssist model with an electric motor and a 4-cylinder engine. The drivetrain options include all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. An automatic transmission comes standard in either model. If it’s been a while since you checked out a Buick, it’s time you give the LaCrosse a chance. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by its ample features and value. You won’t be able to stop yourself from telling your neighbors all about it.
