What's New For 2019

The Buick LaCrosse went through a full redesign in 2017 and had substantial drivetrain updates in 2018, with minimal updates for 2019. Among those updates, the LaCrosse adds a new trim, a front-wheel drive Sport Touring. Additionally, Avenir trim models will now come standard with an air ionizer, and two new colors are added to the selection.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Hybrid Component: 8 Years / 100,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

NHTSA Crash Test Rating

  • Frontal Driver: 5 stars

  • Side Driver: 4 stars
  • Side Passenger: 5 stars
  • Rollover Rating: 5 stars

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) provides consumers with vehicle safety information based on independent testing, primarily front and side crash rating results, and more recently rollover ratings, to aid consumers in their vehicle purchase decisions.

Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Buick LaCrosse represents the end of an era. Quiet and comfortable, the 2019 LaCrosse will be the last of Buick’s big sedans, at least for now, as the brand turns its focus to crossover SUVs.

Following a 2017 redesign, the LaCrosse was updated a year later, introducing a mild hybrid powertrain. A new Sport Touring model joins the lineup for the 2019 model year, wearing a black mesh grille, subtle rear spoiler, and 19-inch Midnight Silver wheels. A new air ionizer is standard in the Avenir edition.

Of the six trim levels, four (base 1SV, Preferred, Essence, Premium) are equipped with a mild-hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor to boost fuel economy, though it cannot be driven on battery power alone. Coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the system is rated at 194 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque.

Sport Touring and opulent Avenir versions have a conventional powertrain. The 3.6-liter V-6 engine makes 310 horsepower, mating with a 9-speed automatic. Essence and Premium models can get the V-6 engine as an alternative to the eAssist mild-hybrid system.

Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available for several trim levels.

Although official crash-test data is impressive, Buick makes most active-safety features options. The NHTSA gave the 2019 LaCrosse a five-star overall score, including five stars for frontal and side impacts, as well as for rollover prevention (a calculated figure). Not many vehicles manage five stars in every category.

The IIHS gave the LaCrosse mostly “Good” crash-test scores, except for the more stringent small-overlap test on the passenger side (which has not been rated). The LaCrosse also earned a “Superior” rating, providing the available automatic emergency braking system is installed. Headlights rated “Poor” keep the LaCrosse from earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick award.

Adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking are limited to the top Avenir edition, as part of a $1,690 Driver Confidence II option package. Blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts are standard on Premium and Avenir levels.

Despite the restrictions on active-safety technology, Buick’s biggest sedan offers sufficient style, refinement, and compelling options to compete against more-costly luxury automobiles.


Prices do not include $925 destination charge.

Base 1SV ($29,570) holds the 2.5-liter eAssist engine with front-wheel drive. Standard equipment includes synthetic leather upholstery, 18-inch alloy wheels, power front seats, HID headlights, eight-speaker audio, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Black and white are the only colors available.

Preferred ($33,670) adds a power tilt/telescopic steering wheel and a cargo net.

Essence ($36,370) gets leather-appointed seat trim.

Essence V6 AWD ($41,070) substitutes a V-6 engine and all-wheel drive. Heated front seats and a driver-seat memory are included.

Premium ($38,670) has front-drive with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. Included are a heated steering wheel, cooled front seats with lumbar adjustment and massaging, head-up display, forward-collision warnings, active lane control, and blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts.

Premium V6 AWD ($43,470) substitutes the 3.6-liter V-6 and all-wheel drive.

Sport Touring V6 FWD ($39,370) comes with a black mesh grille, rear spoiler, and 19-inch wheels.

Avenir V6 ($44,870 with front-drive, $47,070 with all-wheel drive) includes a unique mesh grille, panoramic moonroof, navigation, and wireless smartphone charging.


In style and design, the Buick LaCrosse bears flagship looks. A combination of exterior curves and refined interior help Buick’s biggest sedan stand apart in a crowded category. Design details manage to conceal the sedan’s size: Sweeping headlights, a large grille, and curvy hood soften the front-end look. The rear end is clean and simple, with attractive downward-curving taillights.


Clean and understated, the LaCrosse cabin promises a comfortable experience. Solid fit and finish, greatly improved over the years, is demonstrated by evident attention to detail. Helped by soft-touch materials, the LaCrosse feels classy at every trim level.

Power front seats and convincing synthetic leather give even the base model a luxury aura. Few hints of the sedan’s moderate entry-level price can be seen. Moving up the trim-level scale brings lovely perforated leather.

The sweeping roofline shrinks head and leg room in the rear seat, but there’s enough shoulder room to allow three-abreast seating.

Controls are carefully placed on the nearly-symmetrical dashboard, which centers around a sizable touchscreen for the excellent infotainment system.

Trunk space measures 15 cubic feet (14.3 in 4-cylinder eAssist versions). Nicely-shaped, the trunk benefits from a large opening. Thoughtful in-cabin storage is dominated by a big bin at the base of the center console.

Driving Impressions

Quiet-running and on the tame side, the LaCrosse delivers a traditional Buick experience. Soft and comfortable overall, the refined sedan delivers a satisfying ride and handles adeptly.

Pushed hard, it can even feel like a performance sedan, but LaCrosse functions best as a sedate premium cruiser with solid driving dynamics. Despite big-car looks, it can maneuver with surprising agility.

Acceleration is strong with V-6 power, even with all seats occupied. Quick steering helps each LaCrosse feel almost athletic, handling well through curves. Ride and handling are best with standard 18-inch tires rather than optional 20-inchers, with their less-flexible sidewalls.

As expected from Buick, sound deadening provides a hushed, nearly cocoon-like experience. Fuel economy is in accord with competitors. The eAssist hybrid powertrain trails full-hybrid systems, EPA-rated at 25/35 mpg City/Highway, or 29 mpg Combined. The V-6 version is EPA-rated at 21/30/24 mpg. All-wheel drive cuts those numbers by 1 mpg in each category.


Attractive styling joins with an extensive standard-equipment list and broad selection of available features to make the Buick LaCrosse worthy of consideration. The Essence trim may be the best value, adding safety features and cabin comforts while keeping the price reasonably low.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
