Buick has many amazing vehicles in the works, and we at DeVoe Buick GMC are excited to finally see the new LaCrosse Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). This model debuted at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, since China is one of Buick’s largest markets.

Lary Nitz, GM executive director of Global Propulsion System stated that, “GM’s leadership in electrification technologies, now and in the future, are coming to Buick in China.” The plan is to then introduce more than 10 new energy-efficient vehicles over the next five years. This includes plug-in hybrids, full hybrids, and extended-range electric vehicles.

The 2017 Buick LaCrosse HEV has a 1.8-liter SIDI engine, a 1.5-kWh lithium battery, and an electric variable transmission. This has helped increase fuel economy to 50 mpg, which is 35% more than the current LaCrosse with eAssist technology. This won’t be a sluggish vehicle though, as it can still accelerate from 0-to-60mph in 8.9 seconds.

A sleek roofline also helps improve efficiency and create an aerodynamic appearance. In addition, there is more advanced technology such as exhaust thermal energy recycling. This was also the introduction of the new platform of more efficient green technologies with the new “Buick Blue” logo.

We are not sure if the LaCrosse HEV will be offered in the United States, but we are certainly hoping that it will be!

2016 Buick LaCrosse – Coming Soon to DeVoe Buick GMC!

Well, great news! Using the touchscreen display, you can now safely answer phone calls, send and receive text messages, listen to music, and utilize the navigation apps found on your phone—all thanks to the integration of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These two programs have been integrated in Buick’s 2016 Regal and LaCrosse as well as GMC’s Canyon, Sierra, and Yukon, which will be available later this year.

“For most of us, our smartphones are essential. Partnering with Apple and Google to offer CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility across the widest range of models in the industry is a great example of how (GM) continues to democratize technology that’s important to our customers,” said Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors.

Apple CarPlay-supported vehicles will also offer OnStar 4G LTE capabilities for WiFi hotspot support.

Features on the 2012 Buick LaCrosse are Turning Heads

…Or are they? One of our favorite features on the all new 2012 Buick Lacrosse is the remarkable heads-up-display of the speedometer and other vehicle information. As the Buick website puts it, you can now, “see exactly what your Lacrosse is doing with the available heads-up display that allows you to see instrumentation without taking your eyes off the road.”

You can see it for yourself in the picture to the right.

It looks like something you might see in an aircraft of some sort, or maybe a futuristic movie. But no – this is the 2012 Buick Lacrosse – and it’s just one more way that Buick is raising the bar when it comes to technology and safety.
