New 2010 LaCrosse pictures

138 posts in this topic

Very good show. Much better than the grainy pics that everyone whined over.

Regarding exterior details, it definitely appears there will be at least two powertrains. Some have dual exhaust and some don’t. I do like how the dual exhaust is integrated into the rear bumper.

Looks good in red. The interior looks very nice. Glad to see adjustable rear seat headrests.

If they're looking for the LaCrosse to compete with the MKS then the LaCrosse is bigger than we expect. I can see why the Regal would be appropriate to slot underneath the LaCrosse. The Regal will probably be the size of the MKZ.

+1 :smilewide:

I think Buick might have another hit on their hands to followup the Enclave. This car looks great. I can't wait to see the full reveal. I still don't like the "LaCrosse" name, but I can overlook it if Buick nails everything else on this car. If Buick also receives the Insignia based Regal, they would have an excellent 3 vehicle lineup (Enclave, LWB Eps II LaCrosse, SWB Eps II Regal).

Very similar dash shape to the Malibu, the top end version could compete with a bottom end ES350, but people are willing to pay for the "L" on the front of the car so all things being equal most would pick a Lexus over this, so this better be better. The 2010 MKZ has a new interior that is nice, plus has the 340 hp ecoboost coming, the MKS is nicer than this car. Although the Hyundai Genesis kills them all, I sat in a Genesis a couple days ago, the interior is really good, blows away STS, DTS or anything form Lincoln or Buick.

I do like the exhaust pipes integrated into the bumper, but they just copied that from Lexus. Buick needs more originality, (as does the Genesis) and less trying to make a car look like a Lexus. Lexus doesn't even make 1 car that is well styled, why copy them?

Truly looks like an American Lexus. The LS wants its tailpipes back.

The interior looks very good, exterior is pretty good but nothing spectacular, pretty much like a Lexus. Looks like there's an MKS, E-Class, and Passat (?) in one of the pics testing with it.

If priced right, I could see my dad buying one of these.

Looking better all the time. I just wanna see those eyes before I fall in love. Nice proportions! Athletic stance.

1. If you say the dash looks similar to teh Malibu again I will hurt you. You are blind. Please do not say it again.

2. Lexus was not the first company to do integrated exhausts.

Gauges look very Lincoln to me. Like the leather-stitched dash. Interior looks very nice. I would love to see it finished and in beige too.

I know it's a different platform and everything, but it really does have some Malibu-ness in its design and proportions. That said, it looks like it will be very refined and the interior looks great.

This will probably be the premium Buick sedan of the future. I would expect the Lucerne will become more of a fleet car like the Grand Marquis until it fades away.

Such a shame. :nono:

Aimed squarely at the MKs, ES, and GS

Sorry.

I just don't see a Malibu-based LaCrosse even remotely competing with MKS or ES and GS......

This looks to me to be more of a Camry XLE, (maybe) Avalon, or the Fusion-based Lincoln (I can't keep the f@#king Lincoln names straight......stupid-ass Ford....) competitor.

Buick simply isn't in the same league to compete with Lexus or (gasp) even Lincoln. They had the potential.....but squandered it.

I just hope the pricing isn't like an MKS. Although I can see it competing with one. Look at the interior, and I hope we get the China bound Regal here as well.

If your opinion is strictly based on platform sharing, then why can't a NG-Malibu-based Buick LaCrosse compete against a Ford Taurus-based Lincoln MKs and a Toyota Camry-based Lexus ES350?

And BTW... the current Malibu LTZ already competes well with the Camry XLE. It doesn't have all the available options, but interior quality and design are fine. The NG LaCrosse appears to exceed both of those by far. I’m sure available options will also.
