Buick LaCrosse for 2012 is coming to Ferguson Superstore in Broken Arrow, OK. The car is going hybrid as well, sort of.
Since the vehicle doesn't have an actual hybrid powertrain, GM is billing it a "hybrid-lite" - using eAssist to achieve an EPA mileage of 25 mpg city, 36 highway.
"The 15 horsepower motor-generator is mounted much like an alternator would be placed in other cars. It collects energy via the serpentine belt during braking and adds that 15 horsepower and 79 lb.-ft. of torque during acceleration via that same reinforced beltway," explains Boston.com.1
A base LaCrosse starts around $30,820, with upgrades starting at $33,300, but there's more: audio upgrade ($600 more), driver confidence package ($1,440), nav and backup cam ($1,345); rear-seat entertainment system ($1,295) and metallic paint ($195). Add this all up, and you're well under $40,000 ($38,175) for a high performance, green vehicle.
