Under the hood of the 2018 Buick LaCrosse, you’ll find the 3.6-liter V6 engine that is also present in the Enclave. Even though Buick tried to tweak it a bit to improve gas mileage as well as the horsepower, the truth is that it still isn’t that refined and it is pretty thirsty. At the moment, this engine is able to produce about 310 of horsepower.

According to some rumors that we keep hearing, you can also expect to see a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is able to produce the same 310 of horsepower. Maybe because of this we are not really buying it. However, we wanted to make sure that you know everything that is being said about the 2018 Buick LaCrosse.

In terms of transmission, you can count with a 9-speed automatic gearbox.

Even though the 2018 Buick LaCrosse comes with four-wheel drive as standard, you also have the option to go for the all-wheel drive.
