GM has recently announced that new Buick Lacrosses will come with an optional four-cylinder engine for improved fuel economy, but for consumers looking for used cars in New York with a little more kick, used versions all come with a more powerful V-6 or V-8 option.
The luxury sedan will get a slightly more powerful version of the Ecotec engine that powers compact cars like the Chevrolet Cobalt, for combined fuel mileage of about 25 miles per gallon, according to GM.
“Buick LaCrosse customers will have the fuel-efficient option of the Ecotec 2.4L direct injection engine, a four-cylinder that is not available by key competitors, such as the Lincoln MKZ and Acura TL,” said Susan Docherty, Buick-Pontiac-GMC vice president.
But for those looking for a slightly stronger engine a used Buick Lacrosse in New York from 2005 could be worth checking out.
Edmunds.com editors said that it had a “smooth and quiet ride” even with a V-6 engine with 20 more horsepower than the 4-cylinder offered in new version.
For the money-conscious, the fuel mileage was still fairly high in its class, they noted, with an EPA average combined estimate of 21 miles per gallon.
