    What Happened To The LaCrosse?

    The AP reported last week that Buick dealers have a 330-day supply of LaCrosses on their lots. What happened? Granted, I don't live in a heavily populated area, but I have yet to see one on the road. Did GM price them too high? (I personally think they are over-priced).

    Pretty redesign, too.

    I fail to see validity in its existence.

    2013 Cadillac ATS - Black

    Re: What Happened To The LaCrosse?

    Sadly, the world has moved on from big cars. I think it is a great looking car, I'd consider one were I to be in the market for a large car. But for the price, I'd rather have the next gen ATS when it comes out.... Near luxury is a tough segment and obviously someone at GM screwed up the sales forecast (which they did with most of their lineup).

    It's a nice enough car even though I personally think it is overpriced and under advertised at this point. This story doesn't surprise me either because they have a lot full of them here, so obviously something is wrong and they aren't moving. Probably like FenwickHockey65 says the market has and still is changing.

    I just checked Koons, a giant car dealership in the DC metro area. They have 11 LaCrosse sedans in stock. That is a 330 day supply? This mammoth dealership only sells one LaCrosse a month? Something is wrong here.

    Maybe they Camaro'ed it. They took a car that had a solid market base, improved it and moved it upmarket where the competition is far tougher and the value proposition of the LaCrosse is not as strong. And of course as others have pointed out, CUVs have stolen most of the large sedan market.

    When GM re adjusted pricing for last gen lacrosse and regal that strategy should have stuck around with this new generation. Both sedans should be price under 42k.

    Re: What Happened To The LaCrosse?

    First off, you need the break downs per Model Year and really the run rates as well.

    Second, Market including all the formerly hot stuff is weakening as we speak.

    Just watch what happens to the cars now that the Fleet / Fleet Rental people want a greater share of CUV / SUV instead, along with decreased total volume due to ride sharing etc etc and can get that first done and done easily.

    Which of course means the bottom has already fallen out ( later half 4th Q 2016 ) for non Car discounting and pricing. And coming full circle because of that means the Car product is well and truly FUBAR.

    Really not good for some more so than others. Especially for GM and Ford.

    If this keeps up, other things are going to snowball like CAFE etc etc.

    We, a large Minneapolis dealer, have 40 2017 LaCrosse's in stock and have sold 3. They are as cold as the rest of the Buick cars. I would be torn to say which of the Lacrosse, Regal or Cascada is coldest.
