2019 Buick LaCrosse

In 2017, Buick completely redesigned the LaCrosse to introduce a new styling direction for the brand. Fast forward to 2019, and the LaCrosse maintains many of these design changes but offers some new updates as it enters the new model year.

The Buick LaCrosse symbolizes what an American full-size sedan should bring to the table. Luxury, comfort, and style are what sets this vehicle apart from the competition. So, what can buyers expect from the 2019 model that makes this vehicle a must?

Exterior Shades

Exclusive to model year 2019 are two new exterior shades that have been added to the lineup: Carrageen Metallic and Dark Shadow Metallic. If these 2 new colors aren’t to your liking, then there are 8 other premium colors to choose from.


Buyers also have the option to pick between two advanced powertrain options. The first option is the 2.5L engine with eAssist technology, providing efficiency with an EPA-estimated 25 city/35 hwy mpg. Or buyers can opt for the souped-up 3.6L V6 engine, delivering 310 HP and an EPA-estimated 20 city/30 hwy mpg. Both of these engines will deliver an incredible performance, so it really just depends on the buyer’s personal preference.

Safety Features

The LaCrosse offers some great safety features and many of them are considered standard across the board, including:

  •  Reverse Camera
  •  Backup Sensors
  •  Teen Driver (allows parents to monitor their teens’ driving habits, as well as gives parents the control to limit certain features)
  •  Driver Confidence I Package (optional) (adds lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert )
  •  Driver Confidence II Package (optional) (in addition to Driver Confidence I, this package adds on adaptive cruise control, automatic parking assist, forward automatic braking, and front pedestrian braking.

In its debut 2017 model year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rated the Buick LaCrosse as a top safety pick, which means that it had to score well in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention.
