The 2019 Buick LaCrosse will add a new style statement when the Sport Touring (ST) model joins the lineup this summer, the automaker, a division of General Motors Co. in Detroit, announced on Monday.
The ST brings a monotone theme to the LaCrosse with a body color grille surround and side vents, which are finished in chrome on other models. Additionally, the ST features a subtle rear spoiler, black mesh grille, 19-inch midnight silver wheels, and “ST” badging on the trunk lid.
The 2019 LaCrosse ST features a standard 310-horsepower, 3.6L V-6, and a 9-speed automatic transmission. Pricing starts at $40,295, including a $925 destination fee, with five available exterior color options: White Frost Tricoat, Satin Steel Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat, and Ebony Twilight Metallic.
“The LaCrosse ST emphasizes the importance of design, while also complementing the safety, refinement, and technology of our flagship sedan,” says Phil Brook, vice president of Buick and GMC Marketing. “The LaCrosse exemplifies what we mean by attainable luxury, offering Buick’s signature QuietTuning, spirited, and efficient performance and the latest in-car connectivity all at a tremendous value to customers.”
The 2019 model year will also bring additional changes to other models in the LaCrosse lineup, including two new exterior colors — Carrageen Metallic and Pewter Metallic. A new air ionizer designed to eliminate odors and improve air quality is now standard on the Avenir model.
