As a Dallas Buick Dealer, I know that when some people think of Buick, they don’t necessarily think of the word “luxury”. “Comfortable, smooth, well-built” are the words I hear the most to describe the Buick LaCrosse.
Well, it was only a matter of time before we started to see more refined sensibilities come out of the Buick design factory, and if this new Buick LaCrosse Concept give any hint of what to come from Buick, I think we are all in for some really nice surprises.
Some upgraded luxury touches include a palette of trims including cabernet red, dark cocoa brown and caramel chocochino; French-stitched premium leather seats; suede on the headliner; and a red exterior with tinted chrome accents.
“Every surface in the interior of the LaCrosse GL has been crafted with the knowledge that Buick customers enjoy the finer things in life, but don’t need to flaunt it,” Magdalena Kokoszynska, creative designer on LaCrosse GL said.
The exterior of the Buick LaCrosse GL Concept is colored in red with brushed and tinted chrome accents on the grille, door handles and deck lid, as well as around the windows, taillights and headlights.
“The LaCrosse GL concept expresses Buick’s distinctly human kind of luxury – one that is as warmly inviting as it is elegant and refined,” said David Lyon, executive director of design. “The design cues that already distinguish the production LaCrosse – such as the premium leather-upholstered seats, ice blue ambient lighting and soft touch surfaces – are amplified in the GL and serve as inspiration for future Buick models.”
Now of course we’ll see some type of price restructuring, but as of now, since there is no word of a production model yet, I guess Buick is just testing the market to see what type of reaction the LaCrosse GL receives before making any decisions.
If you are interested in seeing the current production model of the Buick LaCrosse, don’t hesitate to swing by your Dallas Buick Dealer and take a test drive. You’ll be glad that you did.
