TOP TEN FEATURES
1. Sculpted design – Sculpted, flowing lines and a dramatic
sweep spear give LaCrosse timeless style. Buick signature
design elements include a waterfall grille, portholes and
chrome accents that add to its beauty.
2. eAssist fuel-saving technology –LaCrosse with eAssist
technology is the most fuel-efficient sedan in its class with
EPA-estimated fuel economy of 36 mpg highway. eAssist
captures energy through regenerative braking energy and
stores it in the battery for future use. This energy is then
used to power the electric motor, when needed to assist the
2.4L I4, or run the accessories while in Auto Stop Mode. This
enables LaCrosse to deliver unexpected fuel economy for a
full-size luxury sedan.
3. Luxurious interior – LaCrosse is meticulously and artfully
crafted with premium materials that create an inviting
environment. Highlights include contrast French-seam
stitching, smoked chrome accents, Dark Poplar woodgrain
appliqués and soothing Ice Blue LED ambient lighting.
OVERVIEW
LaCrosse continues to deliver refinement and luxury with an
outstanding driving experience. For 2013, LaCrosse offers a lineup
with five distinct Equipment Groups and simplified packaging.
Two engines continue to be offered—the fuel-sipping 2.4L Ecotec
with eAssist or the 303-hp V6, available in front-wheel drive or
all-wheel drive. Advanced handling features are also available. In
packaging updates, LaCrosse 1SB and Leather Equipment
Groups add more standard luxury features. The V6 engine is
now available on LaCrosse 1SB. The 3.6L V6 is exclusive to
Premium I, Premium II and Touring. LaCrosse 2013 Equipment

• LaCrosse 1SB (standard 2.4L I4 with eAssist; optional 3.6L V6).

or AWD).
• Premium I 1SP (exclusive 3.6L V6 FWD or AWD).
• Premium II 1SR (exclusive 3.6L V6 FWD only).
• Touring 1ST (exclusive 3.6L V6 FWD only).

entertainment, communication and navigation features—
many with hands-free, voice-activated convenience. Buick
IntelliLink, Bluetooth for Phone and Music, plus access to
Pandora Internet Radio, Stitcher, OnStar with Turn-by-Turn

eAssist—respond with efficient, confident performance.
Both include direction injection and 6-speed automatic
transmissions with tap-up/tap-down Driver Shift Control.
6.Advanced AWD with eLSD – The available AWD system
offered on LaCrosse optimizes traction by distributing
power to the wheels with the most grip—helping LaCrosse
confidently handle dry, wet and snowy roads.
7.Library quiet – QuietTuning strategies reduce noise at
the source, block the noise path and absorb noise in the
LaCrosse cabin. The result is an exceptionally quiet driving
experience that is refined and luxurious.
8. 360-degree field of vision – Available features like Side Blind
Zone Alert, articulating Xenon High-Intensity Discharge
(HID) headlamps, Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist and a Rear
Vision Camera enhance visibility.

POWER & PERFORMANCE
•Ecotec 2.4L DOHC VVT DI 4-cylinder engine with eAssist –
This fuel-saving technology gives LaCrosse class-leading fuel
economy, without sacrificing response.
– 182 hp @ 6700 rpm.
– 172 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4900 rpm.
• eAssist and Regenerative Braking – Included with the Ecotec
2.4L engine. eAssist uses the forward momentum of the
vehicle to spin a motor-generator to create electricity. As you
brake, eAssist captures energy in the advanced battery pack in
the trunk.
– The state-of-the art lithium-ion 115V battery and 15kW
electric motor-generator work together to improve fuel
economy by up to 25% and provide up to 15 additional hp
when needed.
– eAssist saves fuel by providing fuel cutoff when coming
to a stop and automatic engine shutoff when LaCrosse is
stopped. The captured, recovered energy powers the radio,
climate control system and other accessories whenever the
engine operates in Auto Stop mode.
• 3.6L SIDI DOHC VVT V6 engine with E85 FlexFuel capability –
Powerful and responsive, the 3.6L V6 provides a spirited
driving experience. The V6 includes E85 FlexFuel capability.
Standard on Premium I, Premium II and Touring groups.
Available on LaCrosse 1SB and Leather groups.
– 303 hp @ 6800 rpm.
– 264 lb.-ft. of torque @ 5300 rpm.
• Spark Ignition Direct Injection (SIDI) – SIDI creates more
power from less fuel by injecting fuel directly into the
combustion chamber. This creates a higher compression ratio
that increases efficiency and horsepower, and reduces coldstart emissions by up to 25%. Standard.
• 6-speed automatic transmissions with overdrive – The
sophisticated, smooth-shifting transmissions on LaCrosse
deliver optimal fuel economy with excellent performance
and minimal noise, vibration and harshness levels. They also
include Driver Shift Control (tap-up/tap-down) clutchless
shifting for the sportiness of a manual transmission.
•Fuel economy – 2013 EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings:
– Ecotec 2.4L DOHC DI 4-cylinder with eAssist: 25 city/36 hwy.
– 3.6L SIDI DOHC V6 VVT with E85 (FWD): 17 city/
27 hwy (gas).
– 3.6L SIDI DOHC V6 VVT with E85 (AWD): 16 city/
26 hwy (gas).
RIDE & HANDLING
• 4-wheel independent suspension – Features Europeaninspired tuning with agile handling for a comfortable and
balanced ride.
•Front suspension – MacPherson strut coil-over-spring design,
twin tube dampers with gas-charged valving and hollow
direct-acting stabilizer bar.
• HiPer Strut performance front suspension – This suspension
improves ride and handling and reduces torque steer. The
normal tugging and vibration felt through the steering wheel
on rough roads is significantly reduced. It also improves grip
in dry and wet conditions, giving you a direct feel of the road.
Standard on Premium II and Touring groups.
•Two rear suspensions – Provide confident and agile handling.
A 4-link rear suspension with hollow stabilizer bar is included
with FWD. An H-arm design with enhanced isolation is
Included with AWD and Touring.

the road up to 500 times per second to continuously adjust
damping for changes in terrain and driving style. Reduces
pitching motion during braking and body movements in
curves and turns. Standard on Touring.

suspension shocks, steering efforts, and by holding
transmission shift points in curves. Standard on Touring.
• 4-wheel disc ABS with Brake Assist – Standard. (See the
Safety section.)
•All-wheel drive with eLSD – Optimizes traction by distributing
power to the wheels with the most grip. In low-traction
situations— like rain, sleet or snow— it can send up to 50% of
engine torque to an individual front wheel and up to 85% to
either rear wheel. Performance and handling benefits on dry
roads include enhanced acceleration with torque reaching all
four wheels. Included on AWD Leather and AWD Premium I.
• StabiliTrak Stability Control with Traction Control – Standard.
(See the Safety section.)
•Electric power steering – Standard on LaCrosse 1SB and
Leather groups with the 2.4L eAssist powertrain.
