Vehicle Overview
Buick's LaCrosse midsize sedan received new front-end styling last year and a new Super trim level. Supers feature a V-8 engine with fuel-saving cylinder deactivation technology. Also available in CX and CXL forms with V-6 power, the sedan competes with the Mercury Milan and Chrysler 300.

New for 2009
There are no significant changes to the 2009 Buick Lacrosse.

Apart from the portholes on each front fender, dual exhaust tips and a small rear spoiler, the LaCrosse Super looks much like the other trims. At 198.1 inches long, it's longer than both the Milan and the 300.
Exterior features include:
  • 16-inch aluminum wheels (standard on CX)
  • 17-inch chrome wheels (standard on CXL; optional on CX)
  • Scarlett Red paint no longer available

With a front bench seat — an uncommon offering in this class — the LaCrosse can seat up to six. A five-seat model with front bucket seats is also available. The top-of-the-line Super gets a silver-colored center stack and unique gauges. The LaCrosse has roughly the same interior volume as the Milan and is 8 cubic feet smaller than the 300.
  • Bluetooth wireless phone communication now standard
  • XM Satellite Radio
  • Dual-zone automatic air conditioning
  • Remote start
  • 16 cubic feet of trunk space
  • Split, folding rear seat available in an optional package

Under the Hood
CX and CXL trims use a 3.8-liter V-6, while the Super's 5.3-liter V-8 can switch instantly from eight to four cylinders to save gas when full power is not needed.
  • 200-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 (CX and CXL)
  • 300-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 engine (Super)
  • Buick says the Super can go from zero to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds
  • All engines team with a four-speed automatic transmission

Standard safety equipment includes:
  • Antilock brakes
  • Standard side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system (only on Super trim)
