I think it was discussed in the 2007 LaCrosse and 2007 Allure topics that the LaCrosse Super wasn't going to come out for 2007--it'll be a 2008 model for the last MY of this generation LaCrosse.

Oh I see, is it coming out at the end of the year? Or will it be an early 2008 model?

That's it? 1 line? Is there more if you log in?

I guess that settles it, it's definitely not a 2007 model.

I can get the article when the June issue comes out. For some reason my college library subscription doesn't put the most recent month online.

I don't know why anyone is trying to make this more than it is--the 5.3 goes into a W-Body: Been there, done that.

I guess I'll have to wait for a redesign to get excited.

My thoughts, precisely.

My thoughts, precisely.

And it's only for 1 freaking year?! I almost say, "What's the point?!"

It blows my mind that this couldn't have been introduced for MY 2007. What is the delay? I mean it's not as if GM is creating the 5.3 and 4T65 from scratch. It's already been in the 2005 GXP and 2006 GXP and Impala/Monte. GM is going to be late to it's own funeral for goodness sakes!

Why would they release it as a 2008 when the new LaCrosse comes as a 2009? I call bull&#036;h&#33;...there won't be a Super until MY2009, if ever.

The EP2 Lacrosse starts production in early 2009 as a 2010. The Super will have almost two full model years on the W-body.

Unless it has changed since March, the LaCrosse is scheduled to be a MY09.

so do we know it's coming in 08, or is it just going to start on the 09 which is going to be EP2(?)?

as in what facts do we know?

The only reaosn I could see them doing that is maybe to build some 'performance momentum' for the next generation.

You know, kinda like Toyota is doing with the Tundra and NASCAR. The current product isn't all that great, but it WILL build awareness and anticipation for the new one.
