Ven Lai

Ven Lai was on hand to describe the new Buick LaCrosse saying “The warm color combinations, premium interior materials and advanced technology in the 2014 LaCrosse provide the interior environment our discerning luxury customers are seeking,”

The Buick LaCrosse will be released in the United States later on this summer. The Chinese car market is also set to receive the vehicle later on in the year. Since being released in 2009 Buick have managed to sell more than 500,000 of the models around the world, a pretty impressive figure.

Sales dipping

A refreshment of the LaCrosse was greatly needed. Sales have been dipping greatly with 21.9 per cent less sales in 2012 from January to February when compared to the first two months of 2011.

Experts of the American car market are failing to see the light at the end of the tunnel at the moment. The LaCrosse’s category is a difficult one to break into with not much growth within that segment at present. In February of this year just 3.9 per cent of new car sales were taken from the large car market.

Engine ranges to come with the vehicle include a 2.4 litre four cylinder engine and a 3.6 litre V6. The former comes with a 2.4 litre four cylinder model comes with eAssist which uses a small electric motor together with a lithium ion battery. Thanks to its fantastic fuel economy, this particular model of the Buick LaCrosse is said to account for 25 per cent of sales.
