Buick | 2013 Buick LaCrosse | laCrosse - GM Canada

BUICK lacrosse
It requires a vision to develop a luxury car that stands out from the rest and makes
a more personal connection with its driver. Buick’s integrated team of designers,
engineers and craftsmen started by focusing on the sensations they wanted people
to experience when they drive a car. They then executed this vision for LaCrosse
through a comprehensive development effort that spanned three continents – its
appeal to your senses is equally comprehensive. You’ll appreciate the visual cues
of this expressive form of luxury, with a sculpted and refined design, complemented
by rich detailing and exquisite craftsmanship. You’ll feel enthusiasm for LaCrosse’s
brand of efficient performance that includes a 2.4L ECOTEC® engine with fuel-saving
“The more sophisticated, engaging Buick LaCrosse is essentially
what started Buick’s resurgence in earnest...”

eAssist TM technology. And while LaCrosse’s interior is astonishingly quiet, you’ll also
appreciate what you do hear – the sound reproduction quality, complemented by
the interactive functionality of the IntelliLinkTM* radio. A form of luxury driving that
inspires all your senses. The 2013 Buick LaCrosse.
*Full functionality requires compatible Bluetooth® and smartphone. Some devices require USB connectivity.

“With eAssist, Buick has done an admirable job of
creating a green car with minimal compromise.”
– autoweek.com
Performance and fuel efficiency are often viewed as contradictory goals. LaCrosse offers two solutions, enabling you to match
the technology to your preferences. The standard eAssist TM system emphasizes fuel efficiency with a direct-injected 2.4L
ECOTEC® four-cylinder engine, coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission. The eAssistTM system then adds a 115V lithiumion battery, a 15-kW motor-generator, regenerative braking and other features that help enhance fuel efficiency – including
an air shutter system that enhances aerodynamics at highway speeds. Electric power actually adds to the engine’s output,
while also taking over to save gas when decelerating or idling. An ECO gauge continuously responds to your driving behaviour,
helping you optimize fuel efficiency. The numbers prove the effectiveness of this technology: LaCrosse equipped with eAssist TM
earned a 5.4 L/100 km highway and 8.3 L/100 km city ratings.* An intelligent approach to fuel efficiency: eAssist TM.
Every LaCrosse equipped with eAssist TM includes a Power Flow Gauge that displays
an animation of the system’s energy flow, revealing the current operating status. The
gauge also displays the high voltage battery charge level. A separate analogue ECO
driver efficiency gauge assists the driver in further improving efficiency.
*2013 Buick LaCrosse equipped with standard 2.4L ECOTEC® I.4 engine with eAssist TM. Fuel consumption ratings based
on GM testing in accordance with approved Transport Canada test methods. Your actual fuel consumption may vary.

No one needs to tell Canadians how inclement weather can adversely affect driving conditions. LaCrosse answers with an
available Haldex All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system that includes an electronic limited-slip differential that delivers even more surefooted performance. When sensors detect wheelspin, the system responds automatically, redirecting power to the wheel or wheels
with the most grip. This highly sophisticated system can send up to 50 percent of engine torque to either front wheel and up to
85 percent to either rear wheel. And by delivering torque to all four wheels, the system helps optimize acceleration, as well as
all-weather traction. The AWD model is powered by the 303 horsepower 3.6L DOHC V6 that incorporates fuel-saving direct
injection and Variable Valve Timing (VVT) technologies – the engine is paired with an electronically controlled six-speed automatic
transmission, for optimal fuel efficiency and performance. AWD and the 3.6L DOHC V6: A very well balanced combination.
BUICK lacrosse
Buick’s global design teams configured the driver’s environment in LaCrosse to create a more fulfilling experience. For
openers, the cabin is a sanctuary, with a spaciousness that’s reflective of LaCrosse’s full-size interior. The character of
the space is defined by another sense: the remarkable level of quiet achieved by a series of Buick-exclusive QuietTuning ®
features that help reduce, block and absorb noise for a library-quiet ride. Your ears are in for another treat when you
talk to the Buick IntelliLinkTM radio, with its voice-activated technology and a series of easy-to-use, interactive functions.
The comfort is also exceptional, with available heated and ventilated front bucket seats with perforated leather
appointments – there’s even an available heated wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel. Very thoughtful touches,
which should come as no surprise in an interior as intelligently designed and equipped as that of LaCrosse.
“Sitting inside the LaCrosse at speed provides a remarkably serene environment.
Wind noise was virtually nonexistent and carrying on conversations with
‘inside voices’ allowed us to hear and be heard with ease.”
– autoblog.com

A Buick IntelliLinkTM* enables you to control your smartphone using the
standard Bluetooth ® hands-free connectivity.
B You can adjust Bluetooth®, IntelliLinkTM* audio system and cruise control
functions using the standard steering wheel-mounted controls.
CIntelliLinkTM* also allows you to stream music wirelessly directly from
your smartphone and from your iPod ® or other MP3 player.
D The available rear-seat DVD entertainment system features dual rear
seatback-mounted fold-up LCD screens, each with independent playback
capability, plus wireless headphones and a USB port.**
Your taste in music is as sophisticated and personal as your taste in automobiles. Buick makes it possible to satisfy both these
prerequisites with IntelliLinkTM.* It employs the latest in voice-activated technology, enabling you to select the source of music or
programming you want with simple voice commands. That means you can access everything from the music stored on your
smartphone to the vast array of music, news, comedy and sports offerings through the standard XM Satellite RadioTM.†
The system features a backlit, high-resolution LCD touch screen that connects to your smartphone with standard Bluetooth®
hands-free connectivity. Also included is a standard USB port** that enables you to plug in a range of media devices. Better
yet, the system is remarkably simple and intuitive to operate – and your system can be configured around the way you use it
right at your dealership. For the ultimate in musical inspiration, opt for the available Harman Kardon ® 384-Watt 11-speaker
premium 5.1 Matrix surround audio system. Once you’ve heard the sound inside LaCrosse, you won’t stop talking about it.
*Full functionality requires compatible Bluetooth® and smartphone. Some devices require USB connectivity.
**Not compatible with all devices.
†Available in 10 Canadian provinces and the 48 contiguous United States. Subscription sold separately after trial period. Visit xmradio.ca for details.

LaCrosse’s cabin sets the tone for your driving, with an artful combination of flowing design, premium materials, technology
and craftsmanship. These elements fuse together to create a vivid personality with a distinct Buick feel. You can personalize
the look of the cabin, choosing between Ebony, Cashmere or Titanium interior trim – each with its own unique presence.
Continuing on the colour theme, standard ambient lighting adds a calming ice-blue glow to the cabin, while also making
features like door handles and cargo bins easier to find at night. Available perforated leather-appointed seating surfaces
offer a luxurious touch, while its highly breathable material provides a functional benefit. A standard power eight-way
driver’s seat adjuster adds to the comfort. Upon closer examination, you’ll notice details like the French stitch seams on
the available leather seating and other examples of LaCrosse’s exemplary fit and finish. That represents yet one more
expression of Buick’s world-class quality standard. In a cabin with built-in sensory appeal.
LaCrosse is available in three interior trim colours: Titanium is shown
in the main photo to the right; Cashmere is shown in photo A;
and Ebony in photo B above.

How can one system do so much to enhance the safety, security
and convenience of your driving? Read the long list of benefits
that accompany OnStar ®1 and you'll discover why so many
people have adopted this important innovation in technology.
OnStar ® is standard on every Buick model, along with six
months of the Directions and Connections Plan featuring Turnby-Turn Navigation2 and the OnStar RemoteLinkTM mobile app.3
Automatic Crash Response
In most collisions, on-board sensors automatically alert OnStar ®
that you’ve been hit. You don’t have to do a thing. A specially
trained Emergency Advisor is immediately connected to your
vehicle. If you request help, or can’t answer, emergency responders
are sent to your precise GPS location. Advisors monitor the
OnStar ® network 24 hours a day, so there’s always someone
there to help when you need it most.
Emergency Services
When you need help, just push the Emergency OnStar ® button
for a priority connection to a specially trained Advisor.
LaCrosse establishes a very high standard on safety fundamentals, as proven by the fact it has received a Five-Star Overall
Vehicle Score* – the highest possible overall vehicle score for safety from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), in addition to a 2012 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick.** Standard
safety features include the StabiliTrak ® electronic stability control system, full-function traction control and four-wheel
anti-lock brakes. Available advanced technological features further enhance your feeling of confidence behind the wheel
– including ultrasonic rear parking assist, a rear vision camera, Side Blind Zone Alert † and Head-Up Display (HUD)
instrumentation. Because there’s no such thing as too much peace of mind.
*U.S. Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment Program (www.SaferCar.gov). ** For more information, visit iihs.org/ratings.
†Before making a lane change, always check the Side Blind Zone Alert display, check exterior and interior rear-view mirrors, look over your shoulder for vehicles/hazards and start the turn signal.
A The available rear vision camera system helps you see objects that may otherwise be
obscured behind your LaCrosse when in reverse.
B The available Head-Up Display (HUD) instrumentation projects information such as vehicle
speed, exterior temperature and radio selections on the windshield, so you can maintain
your full attention on the road ahead.
C The available Side Blind Zone Alert † employs radar technology to scan an arc on both
sides of the vehicle. When another vehicle enters either of these zones, it triggers an
LED symbol alert in the appropriate exterior rear-view mirror.
Crisis Assist
During a natural or man-made crisis, OnStar ® Advisors can contact
emergency responders on your behalf, provide directions to help
you get out of harm’s way, locate a nearby hotel and help you
connect with loved ones – at no extra charge.
Stolen Vehicle Assistance
If your vehicle is stolen, OnStar ® works with police to attempt to
recover it – swiftly and safely.
Remote Services
If you lock your keys in your
car, OnStar ® Remote Door Unlock can get you back in your
vehicle in minutes. Call OnStar ® and an Advisor will confirm your
account information and security verification, and then can send
a signal to unlock your doors. No locksmith. No hassle.

of yet, OnStar ® Turn-by-Turn Navigation2 connects you to your
destination effortlessly. Just push a button for an Advisor to help
you get anywhere. And, with OnStar ®, you’ll have the most up-todate routes right at your fingertips.

to take full advantage of OnStar ®’s robust network. Even in places
where handheld cell phones are banned while driving, OnStar ®
enables you to call hands-free by purchasing minutes for
Hands-Free Calling.
OnStar RemoteLinkTM mobile app
The OnStar RemoteLinkTM mobile app3 places the power of OnStar ®
in the palm of your hand. It gives you an amazing level of control
and connection with your vehicle through your mobile device. It
lets you access real-time vehicle data, like oil-life and tire pressure.
With RemoteLinkTM you can lock and unlock doors or contact an
OnStar ® Advisor all from your smartphone. If you’re a Subscriber
with Directions and Connections, you can also find a location
with OnStar RemoteLinkTM and send directions right to your vehicle.4
Roadside Assistance
If you find yourself stranded, you’re never alone: with one push
of the OnStar ® button, Roadside Assistance can be on the way.
An Advisor will contact a nearby dealership, towing service or
gas station and send them to your precise location.
Vehicle Diagnostics
Every month, OnStar ® automatically runs numerous diagnostic and
maintenance checks on your vehicle’s key operating systems, such
as the engine, airbags and brakes. OnStar ® Vehicle Diagnostics
then sends you monthly email reports showing what’s going on
with your vehicle.
myBUICK app
Now Buick offers another aspect to its premium driving experience:
a sophisticated complimentary app for your new LaCrosse. It
provides access to a series of useful features – right from your
iPhone ® or AndroidTM smartphone.5 That means you can perform
functions like checking parking reminders or review a mobile
Owner’s Manual more conveniently anytime. The app also
works with the OnStar RemoteLinkTM 3 mobile app to lock or
unlock your doors – even remotely start your vehicle (when
factory equipped) right from your smartphone anywhere you
have cell coverage. You can also check up on the status of
vehicle systems, such as fuel level and remaining oil life. In
addition, you can select a destination and have directions sent
right to your vehicle. Another way of connecting with your
