The 2007 Buick LaCrosse Super?

133 posts in this topic

Earlier in the year C&G uncovered images of a yet to be seen Buick model that we were unsure of its origin. However with the latest news on a new "Super" line of Buicks set to be released the obvious became clear. We've found the new face of the LaCrosse.

We expect this FWD, V8 LaCrosse to debut late in '07 with the entire line-up featuring this new grille and facia look in '08.

That's a welcomed improvement. The weakest part of the LaCrosse is the front end becuase the grill is too small, IMO. The mesh lower grills where the foglights currently are should look nice as well I think.

most excellent! is "super" a kind of model line like "v-series" and "gxp" or just a name for the top-level LaCrosse?

The grille is very similar to the Centieme but is shaped like the Velite grille

I don't have any opinions of it so far, because it all depends on how well it matches the car. What if it ends up looking pig-snouty like the Lucerne or Terraza? I think the current Lucerne would look hot with a chrome mesh grille that was pushed in a bit deeper.

I prefer the shape of the Centieme's grille... it just seems more Buicky. The other one is more generic, and it reminds me of an Infiniti Q45.

That would be a BIG improvement. The front end of the lacrosse tries too hard to be too many other cars. Give it a Buick family face and you have really moved in the right direction.

are we sure it is the next LaCrosse?  Could it be a Velite or a new coupe?

Excellent, thanks for the info. We are thinking of getting a Lacrosse, but maybe we should wait for the new one. By the way, Josh...you seem to have an inside track to inside info at Buick. Do you know anything about the Velite? My dealer friend says all he know is that the whole thing is on hold. Anything more? I would buy it in a second. Buick needs a convertible, like now.

Conflicting reports on the Velite. Some say it's a go on Zeta (Which has been consistent as Holden is developing all Zeta Buicks) some have said (including here) that is will go FWD upon its debut. I think it will be RWD based on Zeta out of Holden.

thanks for the info...I hope the Velite comes soon. I have a BMW convertible that is getting old and needs to be traded in.

Your welcome. We don't delete posts here on C&G like they do over on the "other side" like zoomtm's post was deleted due to the C&G link. :D

Nothing concrete on Zeta Buicks as if you ask anybody it's all a toss up. However on the one subject of Zeta that has been consistent, it's Buick on Zeta and Holden is developing the systems to make it happen.

So will this be a refresh and addition to the current gen model? Or will it be a brand new Lacrosse?

It looks to me like a mild refresh similar to when the Grand Prix got the GXP V-8 and the whole line got a mild refresh. It looks real good though. I know prist want a Zeta Velite but, can't an AWD Chi or Epsilon cover it almost as well? Anymore pics? :)

Wow, that's very hot. It conveys an in-your-face classiness, with the cross hatch background reinforcing the "sport" part of the equation. Very encouraging.

Do we know if it gets the 4.6 northstar or the 5.3 LS4? If its the northstar which i hope it is to differentiat it from the Impy, GXP, I needs to have 300 hp otherwise it will be left to far behind by its Chevy and Pontiac siblings. Hopefully by the time these come out they will have 6 speed autos and nav added to the opton lists.
