Spied: '10 Buick LaCrosse

Recommended Posts

Where have I seen those air vents and the nav screen before? hmmmm...

Edit: Can't post copyrighted pics - Fly

I'm really starting to wonder..... :rolleyes:

Looks good. Very good stance. I can't wait to see it.

It looks shorter... I see the Chinese Buick influence though. Their LaCrosse was shorter than ours. That car in those photos has to be between 190-195 inches long. It will be interesting to see the end result.

To quote the past tag lines:

The great American Road again will belong to Buick .

It's Buick.

Negatory. '10MY that starts production in the first quarter of '09.

Sure this won't be like the Tahoe and be a Sept. 08 launch '10 product? Come on... the design is totally finished, grill, interior, everything... I am sure this is powertrain and suspension tuning. Has to be closer than 1Q09.

I hope that the production version looks less plain than this prototype. Portholes and bodyside moldings HAVE to be part of the equation or it will just end up looking like any other old generic Asian clone with a Buick grille grafted on!

are we sure this isn't an MY 09 product?

It's not. I'm sure.

Is Chris Doane a kept boy and Brenda Priddy a Sugar Mamma?

Hahah....that's NOT part of our working arrangement! :lol: Edited by Chris_Doane

That looks a 100 times better. Nice wheels, and finally with a little dish to them. Liking the "CTS like" front valance in that it comes down and doesn't return back 2 feet before turning downward. Very nice proportions.

Any word on width? The current Epsilons are too narrow for upper-midsize duty.

Spy pics look promising. It's very ES350-like, but probably better.

Based on early mules in cut and stretched Vectra bodies, the base EP II looks to be 2" wider and have a 2" longer wheelbase.

I'm not liking that grille, and overall, I think it looks too much like a GS 350.

You rule! :thumbsup:

The way the c-pillar blends into the decklid seems to have some added disguise beneath the camo. That's why the proportions look a bit strange...

Well, it definitely has more presence than the current LaCrosse! I can't wait to see more of this car... it's too camouflaged for me to picture it.

My that's a high beltline! It already looks better than the current dumpy LaCrosse....can't wait to see more!

I noticed the beltline...my first thought was that it reminds me of a disguised Dodge Avenger.

We'll help you out with that in the coming days.

Thus far, I'm not so sure I like it...

The rear reminds me too much of the bland asian look that EVERYONE is copying now (Think: Maxima) Although that might be part of the camo too.

There is a HUGE gap between the body of the car and the tires which makes this (supposedly tailored) luxury sedan look sloppy and uncoordinated.

Of course, I can't form a real judgement based on these camo-ed pix alone.
