We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Buick LaCrosse Release Date.

The 2015 Buick LaCrosse ranks 7 out of 10 Affordable Large Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Buick LaCrosse, as well as reliability and safety data.

Reviewers agree that the Buick LaCrosse offers a high-quality, roomy cabin and a comfortable ride, but they’re let down by its numb steering and limited trunk space.

The Buick LaCrosse is now the GM brand’s largest sedan, and in many ways it’s the only Buick left in the lineup that feels like the brand’s past. Buick’s gone upmarket and upscale, and has shrunk its car and crossover line in quick succession.

As Buick’s flagship model, the 2015 Buick LaCrosse has a greater sense of occasion than the typical full-size sedan. Tasked with showcasing the brand’s best attributes, the LaCrosse comes with ample standard features. Styling is studiedly upscale, a nod to Buick’s premium-brand aspirations. On the road, the LaCrosse whisks you along in near silence, expertly soaking up bumps without feeling floaty. This car is a favorite across the Pacific among chauffeur-driven Chinese dignitaries, and it takes only one drive to understand why.

We’ve appreciated the latest generation LaCrosse’s well-rounded nature since it debuted for 2010, and changes over the years have maintained its luster, including last year’s interior overhaul with improved materials and enhanced touchscreen functionality (though it’s still slow on the uptake at times). Indeed, the cabin is a real highlight, boasting an unusually sleek dashboard and acres of legroom for rear occupants. The LaCrosse’s biggest weakness continues to be its entry-level “mild hybrid” four-cylinder powertrain, which provides sluggish acceleration, forgettable-for-a-hybrid fuel economy and even less luggage capacity than the already space-challenged trunk of six-cylinder models. But with the satisfying V6 engine under the hood, the LaCrosse is a much more compelling package, competing well with a variety of alternatives in this price range.

The mid-size to large LaCrosse flouts those trends, but unlike Buicks of the past, it doesn’t wallow in the past. It may be big, but it accelerates briskly and handles well in V-6 form, and offers fairly good gas mileage as a mild hybrid.

2015 Buick LaCrosse Interior

Reviewers say the 2015 Buick LaCrosse has a quiet and attractive interior that’s built with first-rate materials. They also praise its roomy and comfortable front seats, as well as its spacious rear seats. However, many test drivers note that the LaCrosse doesn’t have much trunk space for the class. The LaCrosse comes equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, a rearview camera, Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display, Bluetooth and a Wi-Fi hot spot provided by OnStar with 4G LTE. Available features include an 11-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system, navigation, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, a head-up display, a sunroof, push-button start and rear parking sensors.

Most of the materials used inside are also top notch. The dash, door panels and center console are all covered in large swathes of wood that have a dark black finish. Trimming out the wood is a single elegant strip of brushed metal that adds a surprisingly affective bit of flair to the cockpit. Much of what isn’t covered in wood or metal is covered in soft, black cow hide. All of that hide is held together with delicate strands of contrasting silver thread. The effect is much more luxurious than I expected from an “affordable” luxury car.

The base LaCrosse comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming mirror, an eight-way power driver seat (with four-way power lumbar), split-folding rear seatbacks, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, a 110-volt power outlet, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen display, a rearview camera and a seven-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack, a USB port and smartphone app integration.

For 2015, the LaCrosse adds some modern technology that’s becoming a necessity in its price class. A rearview camera is now standard on all LaCrosse sedans, and Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system can give directions to your iPhone through Siri Eyes Free. The LaCrosse now can also come equipped with a 4G LTE connection, which includes the ability to broadcast a WiFi data connection inside the vehicle.

Last year, Buick’s added active shutters to the grille for smoother aero, and cooler headlamps with LED wings bookended by LED taillamps. What it could have used, at the same time, is a pry bar for the fake portholes still stuck to its reshaped hood. They’re an unwelcome echo of the past, almost the only reminder of where Buick was just a decade ago.

The LaCrosse is graceful and soft where it needs to be, at the roofline and around its shoulders. But there’s enough bulk down low (the 20-inch wheels now available are beefy well-fillers) and enough starch in its creases to lend it presence. It even has some of the stance of a classically proportioned sedan despite the fact that it’s a front-driver most of the time the long nose helps, a lot, and so does the small decklid spoiler.

The graceful LaCrosse has lots in common with the new Chevy Impala but the LaCrosse was here first, and the impact of its soft-shouldered, snappily creased body panels hasn’t faded. It was tweaked a bit last year with new LED eyeliner and taillamps, but the pleasantly thick shape has always had most of the details down pat. If we worked at GM, we’d personally pry every fake porthole off its hood and banish them forever, but there’s not much else to find fault with on the big Buick. The cabin’s revamp this year remolds the center stack into a less complex shape, and an Ultra Luxury package slathers it in tamo wood and wraps the cockpit in semi-aniline leather.

2015 Buick LaCrosse Engine

The 2015 Buick LaCrosse is offered with a choice of two powertrains. Standard on base and front-wheel-drive Leather trim levels is a mild hybrid system that pairs a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with an 11-kilowatt electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. Combined peak output is 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a six-speed automatic, with front-wheel drive the only layout offered.

In Edmunds track testing, a LaCrosse with this configuration sauntered to 60 mph in 9.2 seconds, a leisurely performance for this segment. EPA fuel economy estimates stand at 29 mpg combined (25 city/36 highway) — fine numbers for an ordinary four-cylinder sedan of this size, but far behind hybrid competitors like the Lexus ES 300h (40 mpg combined).

For those who want an experience that’s closer to that of a traditional luxury car or a traditional Buick, a 304-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is available. Mileage dips significantly, but it’s strong and smooth, with plenty of reserves for passing–which perhaps makes it the best choice for those who plan to carry a full load on highway trips. There’s also an all-wheel-drive option, engineered by Haldex, that can shuffle some power to the rear wheels when the fronts lose traction.

The base powertrain takes a 2.4-liter four-cylinder and couples it to an “eAssist” mild-hybrid system made up of batteries and an electric motor. It’s not a full hybrid–it’s not able to cruise on electric power alone but the eAssist setup does feed some of its net 15 hp to the drivetrain to smooth six-speed automatic shifts and to run some accessories, as well as to restart the engine after it’s automatically stopped at longer pauses. With a net 182 horsepower, this base powertrain is quite smoothly integrated and perfectly adequate, though not all that enjoyable. Although eAssist helps smooth out shifts most of the time, the system still has moments of roughness and indecision.
