2009 Buick Lacrosse Super

The Buick LaCrosse is a sophisticated mid-size sedan, seating up to six passengers in comfort while providing confident handling and a smooth ride.

The front-wheel drive LaCrosse is available in three trim levels: CX, CXL and Super. The CX and CXL are powered by a 200-hp 3.8-liter V6 engine, while the Super is equipped with a 300-hp 5.3-liter V8, including Active Fuel Management cylinder-deactivation technology for enhanced fuel economy. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard on all trims.

For 2009, the Buick LaCrosse gets minor standard equipment upgrades, including heated exterior mirrors, and the CXS trim is removed from the model lineup.

Buick LaCrosse Super

 

GM introduced the high-performance Buick LaCrosse Super -- distinguished from its sibling models with a new waterfall grille, new hood and a new front fascia that incorporates a lower grille opening with chrome trim and chrome fog lamp bezels.

The LaCrosse Super is powered by a 300-horsepower 5.3L small-block V-8 with GM's Active Fuel Management technology. The LaCrosse Super's chassis has been sport-tuned to deliver sharper handling while maintaining quietness inside.

New portholes, rocker moldings, rear fascia with integrated park assist sensors, 3.5-inch-diameter dual chrome exhaust tips, rear decklid spoiler and a Super badge also make the LaCrosse Super identifiable from afar. LaCrosse Super is offered in four exterior colors: Black Onyx, Platinum Metallic, Dark Mocha Metallic and Red Jewel tint coat.

Inside, the LaCrosse Super features front seats with increased seatback bolstering. All of the seats feature new, woven-embossed leather inserts. A unique wood grain appearance accents the instrument panel, center console, doors and gear shift knob.

Bilstein monotube struts, larger front and rear rotors, high-precision steering gear, StabiliTrak, and recalibrated chassis controls help the LaCrosse Super deliver confident handling and road manners, while also maintaining overall ride comfort.
