Refreshed 2020 Buick LaCrosse Debuts

Wait, Buick LaCrosse? Isn’t it dying? Yes, General Motors is pulling the Buick LaCrosse from the U.S. lineup, but the car will remain on the market in China. The Chinese market will be enjoying a fairly extensive refresh of the car, which we got a sneak peak of a few months ago.

A quick glance of the 2020 LaCrosse tells us Buick is ensuring it now matches other recent products in the lineup, including the Regal and Enclave. This means the LaCrosse has a much more pointed design, with sharper angles up front and in back that give the car an overall more modern appearance.

Buick China says the 2020 LaCrosse will be powered by GM’s newest turbocharged 2.0-liter with 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Later on a turbocharged 1.3-liter with 160 horsepower will join the lineup as well.

Here in North America the LaCrosse’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant will ultimately close down in January 2020, but production of the LaCrosse will end in the coming months. The 2020 LaCrosse shown above will remain in production in China.

    That shot in some ways almost makes it look sexy especially with those wheels.

    It looks better, but it's also a flattering camera angle and what looks like very wide tires -- I wonder if it would actually look this muscular in person. The market in North America for a car like this is small and shrinking, though, so I can see why Buick is dropping it.
