It's my understanding that the Buick Lucerne, along with the Pontiac Solstice and Chevrolet Corvette, are specifically not included in the "Red Tag" pricing.

That's because those are the only 3 cars that don't really suck. :rolleyes:

The demand for them is sufficient without smearing blood all over the price tag . .

'05 LaCrosse CXS... $23,819.62 And, to put that in perspective, an '06 Accord EX-L V6 is $25,117, and an '06 Camry XLE V6 is $22,485, both CarsDirect prices. As far as desirability, the LaCrosse CXS is right between the two.

I've been doing some shopping for a LaCrosse. Just thinking about it right now, not totally serious. The CXS's all seem to have $3,000 to $5,000 worth of options on them. A typical one I've found at Cerritos BPG on GMBuyPower stickers for $31,385 (driver confidence package, CD changer, chome package, remote start). The red tag sticker is $27,577. I'm eligible for the GMS price, which is $27,732 minus $1,500 rebate minus $1000 bonus cash, or $25,232, which is about the same price as an Accord EXL, which would have a power moonroof that this particular LaCrosse wouldn't. Even with the GM employee discount, I'm having a hard time seeing the LaCrosse as being a good buy.

Yeah, GM didn't really apply their Total Value Promise to the LaCrosse at all... the MSRP for a V8-powered Lucerne is about the same as a LaCrosse CXS with a few options. The Employee Pricing/Red Tag Pricing should've been the MSRP for a lot of vehicles. I thought sales like these weren't profitable and were intended only to "clear inventory"... guess not. Clearly, GM can afford to lower prices to increase sales.

Tonight I saw a new Buick TV commercial, which showed (but did not come out and say) the words "Beyond Precision." It was a "Red Tag" commercial for Chicago-area Buick dealers, but I bet it's the basic commercial which will air nationally. The announcer had a hushed-type voice, mentioning the fine qualities of the car. And, to the effect of, while you're at the dealership, be sure to see the new Lucerne. I didn't get "fire sale" at all; it seemed very relaxed and upscale.

ALSO: A few minutes later, I saw a commercial for the Dodge (I think) 1500 truck. One with a big Hemi engine, new suspension, interior, etc. I realize all the manufacturers typically show a really nice vehicle in the commercial, but give a lowball base price on the screen and then the fine print says "price as shown $XXX. The Dodge, after all allowances, was $14K-something, but priced as shown $38K! I never noticed such a big disparity before. Edited by wildcat

I don't know what the rebates are in your region but in North Central they've got $4250 off an 05 LaCrosse..to me that's pretty hard to beat

The rebate in the western region for the '05 LaCrosse is $3250. However, the $1000 bonus cash does not apply to it. The '06 model has a slightly better warranty. I wish GM would go to a true simplied pricing structure.

There seems to be another $500 bonus cash on Buicks for the "tent event" or something like that. I'm thinking now that a Lucerne is a much better buy than a LaCrosse, except that there won't be any initial rebates. I really wish the Lucerne had the HF 3.6 liter V-6. In general, G-bodies are much better than W-bodies, and they're just a little bit bigger, and the Lucerne is a lot like my old favorite, the departed Aurora, in concept.
