Now we approach the final post for Buick Cars in Thunder Bay for the month and we want to finish with a bang in describing the trim level options and feature wherein so that you can best determine which one of these nice new Buick Cars in Canada will work best for you and your family’s needs. The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is available in base 1SV, Preferred, Essence and Premium trim levels. All of these come standard with a mild hybrid powertrain known as eAssist that features a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a six-speed automatic and a small electric motor that together produce 194 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque.
Optional from this engine in Canada Buick Cars is a 3.6-liter V6 (310 hp, 268 lb-ft) paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. As is almost always the case with engines and power increases along the way, it is wise to give the most efficient ones a try before committing to the greater power. The added umph is nice, no doubt, but if it goes unneeded, then you are spending money on more than you need and running a less efficient system as a result.
Front-wheel drive is standard, while the Essence and Premium can be fitted with all-wheel drive and the V6, so it is true, too, that features you may desire will sometimes have to be added to specific trims due to lack of ability to gain these things on lower trim levels. The best way to know which is true is to inquire with your Thunder Bay Buick car dealer representative to find out the specifics regarding which Buick car has which feature on what trim. We can wrap it all up by explaining that the base 1SV comes standard with 18-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlights, foglights, heated mirrors, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry, remote engine start, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear air vents, simulated leather upholstery, eight-way power-adjustable front seats (with two-way driver lumbar adjustment), OnStar (with an onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot), an eight-speaker sound system and the Buick IntelliLink infotainment interface that includes an 8-inch touchscreen, two USB ports, Bluetooth connectivity, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration. Now, if you need more than that, you are going to have to trim up a level, but you must admit not much else gives you near as much in the entry levels. Way to go Buick Cars!
