Spacious interior for up to six; quiet, smooth ride; standard V6 power and available V8
Two different interior configurations are offered for the LaCrosse; six-passenger models have a front bench seat with a flip-down center armrest, large storage bin and column-mounted shifter, while five-passenger models have two bucket seats in front with a deep center-console storage area and console-mounted shifter.
The LaCrosse's interior has a crafted appearance, with chrome and woodgrain trim and soft-touch materials. Special attention was paid to keeping the interior quiet; for instance, the windshield and front glass use a special acoustical laminate, while steel laminate is used in front of the dashboard. Additional roof-pillar baffles, lower-body sound deadeners, a specially tuned exhaust system, and engine-compartment sound insulation help make the LaCrosse one of the quietest sedans inside.
The base CX and more luxurious CXL get a 200-horsepower, 3.8L iron-block V6 engine, while the Super derives its power from a 300-horsepower, 5.3L V8. Both engines are matched with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The V8 employs active fuel management, which cuts of the fuel supply to half of the cylinders during coasting or cruising to save fuel; the base V6 also boasts 28 mpg on the highway, according to EPA estimates.
To handle the added power, V8 models come with a specially tuned suspension with Bilstein monotube struts, larger front and rear brake rotors, and high-precision steering gear.
StabiliTrak stability control, which can apply brake force to individual wheels to restore stability, is standard on the LaCrosse, along with anti-lock brakes.
Standout features available on the LaCrosse include ultrasonic rear parking assist, rear passenger reading lamps, heated power outside mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and remote start.
For 2009, the Buick LaCrosse changes little. The biggest change is that the sporty CSX trim level has been dropped, and with it goes the 3.6L V6. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is now available and a tire inflation kit is standard.
Scarlett Red and and Platinum Metallic have been dropped as exterior colors, while Quicksilver Metallic has been added to the palette.
The 2009 Buick LaCrosse ranks as one of the most comfortable mid-size sedans, with seating for up to six adults, a very quiet interior, and smooth, responsive engines. The Super model, with its V8 engine, brings a new sporty edge that should appeal to buyers who wouldn't have otherwise considered a Buick.
