Spy shots '08 Lucerne & Lacrosse

The Lucerne looks good from what I can see, but its enormously amorphous headlamps will need some sharpening in order to complete the look.

I'd be surprised if the Lacrosse kept it's current headlamp setup as shown here.

I don't think they'll change the LaCrosse's headlamps being that they stated they're not changing the hoods, and the hood of the LaCrosse has creases for the headlamps. Would be nice if they updated the headlights. I hope they at least tweak the center stack a bit.

The LaCrosse has the entire fender covered, but there are no protrusions to indicate ventiports.

Well, we saw the other spy photo that showed there would be ventiports. Since they're just add-ons, I imagine they just didn't stick them on this one.

even makeup can't help an ugly chick, and lord knows a new grill for the LaCrosse won't do anything. Ugliest car in GM's lineup and a disgrace to the concept car.

While I lament those fish-eyed headlamps, the car is not ugly at all. If they just did something different with the headlights to go with the new grill and got rid of some of those granny-panny rims this car would look very respectable imo.

You know I can't truly disagree with you. But it is the headlights that really kill me (too much like the failed taurus). And it was also the fact that the concept car looked sooooo damn sexy. But can't win it all and I will still hold true that I think the LaCrosse is the ugliest mid size sedan or bigger car on the market from GM.

I use to be a big Buick fan too. The old regal trumps the lacrosse.

Thats a gross exaggeration! Other than the fact that Buick copied Lexus and the previous gen Hyundai Sonata with the headlights this car is hardly bad looking. The grille was a bit small and the tail lights are pretty generic but at least the LaCrosse avoids the dull plain smooth sided look of so many newly introduced models and the 17" chrome wheels that are std on the CSX are really nice looking. The greenhouse is from the 'been there done that' crowd but so is every other mid size car. All this car needed was a more powerfull and larger grille, better head lights and a return to the long horizontal tail lights to really look better. A 224 hp 3500 V6 with extra quiet tuning would be nice for the new base engine and the 3.6 should be upgraded to the 252 hp varient ala Saturn Aura/2008 Malibu. I also hope the Lucerne gets a better standard engine or at the very least an optional 3.6 for those of us that want a more modern, and powerful V6 engine that still gets decent mileage.

They are starting to look like Chinese Buicks now. I wonder what the interiors look like? The overall shapes and the way they look is what I am referring to. I wonder if these are just the "Super" editions and not the entire line. The Lucerne in that photo looks beefed up.
