Introducing the New 2019 Buick LaCrosse AvenirBlog Sep 28th, 2018
Avenir is defined as the future, or the time to come – the Old French word originated from the Latin, advenīre, and more literally – means to reach for, or attain something through effort. A fitting moniker for the 2019 Buick Lacrosse Avenir, a full-size luxury sedan that enters the segment above and beyond the competition, masterfully blending an artisanal combination of luxury amenities and innovative technological features.
The first-ever Buick Lacrosse Avenir is the newest addition to the luxury line, and its release is peppered with a slew of exciting changes that signal a changing of the guard for Buick.
The standard Buick Lacrosse is no slouch in the style department as-is – but the Avenir luxury line option adds elevated craftsmanship and premium materials, amenities, and iconic styling cues that help to give the Lacrosse Avenir its own identity.
Flowing sculptural lines and a sweeping, sophisticated roofline help to boost the level of perceived sophistication. Avenir-exclusive 20” aluminum alloy wheels with a Midnight Silver finish help create luxury in motion, and the front grille fascia gets an all-new aesthetic complete with three-dimensional chrome wings and a black ice finish.
The Avenir badges on the front doors of the Lacrosse promote the executive-class seating and interior that waits on the other side of the door. Inside, drivers and passengers are met by premium chestnut leather appointments, wood panels, a panoramic sunroof, and a texture and refinement that exemplifies new-school Buick.
Performance & Efficiency
The Buick Lacrosse Avenir comes standard with a 310 horsepower 3.6L V6 engine coupled to a silky-smooth 9-speed automatic transmission. The naturally-aspirated V6 is equipped with an Active Fuel Management system responsible for fuel efficiency rating of an estimated L/100 11.8 city/7.8 hwy.
For additional performance, the Avenir offers the optional Dynamic Drive Package with Sport Mode Selectivity. The package includes:
- 20” machined aluminum alloy wheels with Midnight Silver finish
- P245/40R20 all-season tires
- Sport Mode Selectivity
- Front HiPer Strut suspension
Dual stainless steel exhaust creates an intoxicatingly robust engine note, and available AWD stability comes with Buick’s Active Twin-Clutch system which monitors the traction of all four wheels and activates power distribution when needed to help provide impressive handling on all road surfaces. 5-link rear suspension in the Avenir Lacrosse also helps to create noise-isolation benefits and a class Buick ride quality.
Technology & Connectivity
A full size luxury sedan of this calibre shouldn’t disappoint when it comes to connectivity, technological advancements, and innovative safety features – and the Lacrosse Avenir certainly doesn’t.
Available 4G LTE Wi0Fi connectivity helps keep you connected to all those who matter most to you while on the road. A stylish and helpful heads-up display allow you to keep your eyes where they should be – on the road, while simultaneously being able to see and understand vital vehicle dynamics. The Buick Infotainment system features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility, and Navigation to help you reach your intended destination with your favourite music guiding you at the helm.
Buick’s Avenir line is an iconic advancement in automobile aesthetics – a master class of style that combines a time-tested Buick approach to comfort and quality, with a modern and innovative outlook on vehicle development and performance.
