    Buick LaCrosse X-Touring





    Introducing the 2011 BUICK LaCrosse X-Touring CXS
    Not being a fan of SUVs or CUVs for that matter, I call for a traditional wagon. I say traditional because as of late companies have been going more for style than function. You have have both with this wagon, with a largest in class interior. Retaining what made the Buick LaCrosse such as success and adding additional cargo room and All weather drive-ability will make this an easy choice for a family just starting out or even finishing up, who don't want a clunky inefficient SUV or CUV.
    Only available in CXS or CXL trim, you have a choice between three engines. You can have your pick of the 3.0L DI V6, 3.6L Plug-in Dual Mode Hybrid V6, or 3.6L DI V6.
    Standard Features include:
    All features from respective trims
    power rear lift gate with programmable opening
    Xenon Headlamps
    Rear Fog Lamps
    Rear Wiper and Defogger
    Adaptive Ride Height Control

    Optional Features:
    TBD

    Pricing:
    $35,995 CXL
    $39,995 CXS

    Comments and criticism appreciated.

    Very handsome. The liftgate engineering has already been done for the Insignia wagon, so this is a sure bet for the LaCross.

    Maybe it's the colour, but I'm getting a strong Venza vibe.

    It's not just you i get the same vibe every time i look at it. might be the rear end or just that way the hood looks at this angle, but your not alone.

    Lightbrotha,

    It doesn't matter what color this thing is, it still has a very strong Venza vibe to it.
    Though the red color is nice.

    LeSabre I don't know what it is but it looks like a Venza from the rear, but no Venza was harmed in the making of this. This is LaCrosse and Insignia.

    The angle you have here is part of the Venza vibe I & others are feeling.
    Another part & probably a big part, which isn't really your fault, is the sweepspear crease line. It is very similar in the rear to that of the Venza's rear styling over the rear wheels.

    I like it! Nice job. Would be a great two row option for Buick that is not a Terrain/ Nox clone.

    Very nice work. The LaCrosse is a really burly sedan, so the wagon treatment works quite well. Your integration is awesome too, this is what the competition is all about. I like it.
