Four-Cylinder 2010 Buick LaCrosse CX Priced From $26,995

Follow Viknesh

Potential 2010 Buick LaCrosse customers will soon have a third engine option to choose from, with the announcement today that a new entry-level model equipped with a four-cylinder engine will be offered next year.

The LaCrosse CX with a fuel-efficient direct injected Ecotec 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine will be priced at $26,995 and promises fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

The Ecotec 2.4-liter four-cylinder joins the lineup in the first quarter of 2010 as the standard engine in the LaCrosse CX. Direct injection technology helps it deliver 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, and Buick expects that roughly 25% of customers will opt for this engine.

Every engine in the LaCrosse lineup is direct injected and matched with a fuel-saving six speed automatic transmission. Along with the Ecotec 2.4-liter, a direct injected 3.0-liter V-6 is also offered as well as a larger-displacement and more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 standard on the LaCrosse CXS model.

  1. How does the LaCrosse get worse fuel economy (30) than the Equinox (32) with the same motor? You'd think the car would have better aerodynamics and a bit less weight... I'm confused....

  2. If Buick really wants to convince us that they're the "Lexus" of GM, this is the wrong way to do it.

  3. Definitely not in the Lexus, but perfect for Chinese takeout....where, not by coincidence, many of these Buicks are being sold. In CHINA. Get it, chinese take-out.

  4. Hi Guy's,
    I have no problem with the 4 (apparently, so did majority of honda/toyota owner who are buying 4 cylinder in large volume), it is the price that i have to bark at, $27K for a mid size car ? Even though this is the nicer looking Buick.

  5. "If Buick really wants to convince us that they're the "Lexus" of GM, this is the wrong way to do it."
    Huhhh? I guess they can only be as good as Lexus when their cars have jammed throttles and the company lolly gags and looks the other way on the issue.
    Lets not forget Buick along with Jaguar won JD Power's award for Vehicle Dependability for 2009 and I doubt Lexus will fare any better this year either. Looking forward (and to new customers that's what count's) I think we'll see Buick holding a new place within the market place.
    Just my two cents....

  6. Lexus now has a FWD 4 cylinder that runs on regular gas. Granted, it is a hybrid but still, the movement is to smaller engines.

  7. My Wheels On Walls--
    My point is that GM is now attempting to pitch Buick as a Lexus competitor - but introducing an otherwise rather nice 2-ton entry-luxury sedan that's been stripped-down to steel wheels & plastic wheelcovers, an anemic (for this size of car) 4-cylinder and cloth interior.
    If this were a Malibu it would be expected and make sense - but what's the point in moving up to a Buick to get a stripped, plain-jane, lethargic sedan?
    This is not how you make a brand more desirable - this is classic GM making a brand meaningless.

  8. 4banger is fine, and might actually be a great idea once gas prices skyrocket again (which it will). Just don't make it a stripper and lose the Buick luster. I don't find the price too expensive. All midsize cars have moved past the $25k barrier when reasonably equiped.
