A lot of interesting things is about to happen with this large sedan. Currently, in the third generation, the Lacrosse has been around for almost 15 years. The current version is present for about three years and the company prepares a mid-cycle update for the 2020 Buick Lacrosse.
Changes in this model will be mostly aesthetical. On the other side, the engine compartment and complete mechanics are about to remain unchanged. Same goes for the interior design. Another interesting novelty is that the North American model will be discontinued soon.
The demand for large sedans in not as it was before, while the competition is pretty touched and includes models like Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima etc. On the other side, the Chinese version will definitely carry on, as this large sedan is one of the most popular models on the market.
- Plenty of legroom
- Lots of available features
- Good sound insulation
- Efficient turbo engines
- Lots of cheap plastics on the inside
Without any doubt, this update will be pretty much all about exterior changes. The testing model has been spotted and it looks like we are about to see a big portion of novelties. Both ends will suffer a lot. Of course, the front end will suffer more. Judging on the spy shots, a complete front end will be reworked.
So, we will see a new grille, as well as a new front bumper. Headlights will also get a completely new shape, much sharper than before. On the other end, the 2020 Buick Lacrosse is about to come with new taillights and rear bumper. Some reports also suggest tweaks to the tailgate.
Despite plenty of exterior changes, the interior design is about to remain unchanged. So, we are about to see a familiar cabin, characterized by quite an attractive look and decent overall quality. Most surfaces feature hi-quality materials, though there is still a fine amount of hard plastics around.
As a full-size sedan, this model will give you all the comfort you need. Both rows offer plenty of space and a high level of comfort. In higher trims, you can get a lot of convenience features, such as heated, ventilated and massaged seats.
Things under the hood are about to remain unchanged for the 2020 Buick Lacrosse. Unlike the North American version, which comes with large and naturally-aspirated four- and six-cylinder engines, the Chinese version comes with two efficient turbo units in the offer.
Base versions feature a 1.5-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 163 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Higher trims come with a familiar 2.0-liter turbo engine, which is good for about 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
2020 Buick Lacrosse Release Date and Price
Considering the update, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Buick Lacrosse will come a little bit earlier than usual, most likely in the third quarter of the year. Base models will go around $30,000.
