Last W-body Lacrosse

7 posts in this topic

As with the Grand Prix, it appears that production of the W Lacrosse has ended as of December 23rd without fanfare. On cursory glance I don't see any mention of this on the fan sites either. RIP. Looking forward to seeing the much improved/modern EpII version on the road soon...

Production of the LaCrosse/Allure is set to end Dec. 23 as the result of the end of the car's production life. This was announced earlier in the year and will mean 400 fewer jobs in the plant. These jobs have already been taken care of through retirement incentives and buyouts, Mr. Lowe said.

The current Impala is the best W-body since the Intrigue

There were a few that stood above the rest (The Regal/Century, Intrigue, Impala, Cutlass Supreme all come to mind)

The W-body cars certainly had there strengths. The Buick versions scored highly on reliability. Many came with the near bulletproof 3800. They offered roomy front seat accomodations and were taller and wider than even the current Malibu which feels like a compact to me. The Impala versions from 00-current offer larger trunks than just about every other mid size out there and I have always seemed to have good luck with all my many W cars. The Intrigue was arguably it's best itteration if anything for the smooth revvy 3.5 Shortstar, rock solid structure and excellent handling and composure. For all of todays advances, the W-bodies managed to have there own following good and bad and offered things you can't get on todays other mid size mentioned above. The Impala will be the only one left until 2013 it seems.
