Those tri-shields your grandma and grandpa drive around in are getting major facelifts, and are catching buzz with the younger crowd.

As an avid Buick enthusiast, the new style of Buick excites me. I was never a fan of the new Buicks (2010+), but this new style that we've seen in the 2017 LaCrosse excites me for the future of Buick.
Buick took a bold stance with its Avenir concept released in 2015, and made hints that this style would make its way into the future Buicks.
If you look at the Avenir style, there are throwbacks to the Riviera Boattail in the early 70's, a traditional chrome waterfall grille, as well as curves in the body running from the front wheels to the rear wheels in the lowest portion of the doors and quarter panels. Spokespersons for Buick said the Avenir hinted at the future of Buick.

2 years later but i sat in new Lacrosse at Raleigh Auto Expo. It looks so much better than prev generation Lacrosse. Looks longer. Seats were great, back seat roomy and comfortable.

This thread is only 20 months old.

That " Excitement Generated " as it applies to the LaCrosse has resulted in a 58% decrease in sales from 2017 to 2018.

Sadly, only about 500 Generation 3 LaCrosses are sold now per month in the U.S.

The Michigan Factory where they are produced is set to soon close.

A 2020 model year refresh will only be seen on the Chinese LaCrosse, not here is the States.

The Death of the Sedan is officially here. ( Although they still make up half the cars on today's road-scape )

Cylces are just that, they run in Cycles...

The Sedan may see a comeback in future years as a specialty niche akin to today's Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers - modern day homages to the bygone muscle car era... who know ?

This first post made 20 months ago surely missed the mark.

The author says they were... and I Quote " never a fan of the new Buicks (2010+)"

Well, Generation 1 and 2 LaCrosses by far outsold the current Generation 3; so obviously there are far more fans of these cars the the 2017+ Gen 3 you predicted would be - And I Quote again " catching buzz with the younger crowd".

Sincerely,

A fan ( one of many still excited and generating a buzz with the 2010+ ) Buick LaCrosse ~ Bhodi

Sad to see that north America isn't buying large sedans anymore. I will say the 3rd gen lacrosse was good looking enough to convince my wife and I (in our late 20's) to buy a brand new gen 3 but it does seem like there just isn't a future for big sedans in America right now

This has nothing to do with how "good" the vehicles are as god knows GM sold boatloads of sedans throughout the 90s and 2000's that were far from great. I fear the new lacrosse was under promoted and entered at the wrong time and much like Pontiac with the rear drive G8 sedan it is sad that the gen 3 lacrosse is finally the great world class sedan we were always promised just as the brand is axing sedans altogether

I agree.

I like the 3rd gen LaCrosse more so than the 2nd gen LaCrosse. I like the grille and rear light assembly but, mostly, I like the sweep of the beltline and how the roofline flows.

I was thinking they lengthened it compared to my 1st gen LaCrosse. All they did what draw out the rake of the back lite, which cuts down the "flat" surface of the trunk lid. Gen 3 is about the same length as Gen 1.

The timing and the market has changed. Because of their moving away from sedans AND coupes, I may not be buying GM the next time. I'm not sure. The Dodge Charger base model is at the top of my list if buying right now. I get periodic top off offer notices on my card miles combined with great discount promotions on their CUVs, of which I sort of like the outgoing Envision, but my heart isn't racing like it did when I got $3K off MSRP AND a top off offer for my present car.
