  Redesigned Buick LaCrosse
Buick's redesigned LaCrosse sedan to debut in March
Automotive News China | 2016/2/23

SHANGHAI -- General Motors says the redesigned Buick LaCrosse will debut in China next month with an improved chassis and more fuel-efficient powertrains.

The top-of-the-line LaCrosse 28T will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with direct injection and a start-stop system. The engine generates 192 kW of power (257 hp) and a peak torque of 350 Nm (258 pounds-feet).

The powertrain consumes 7.6 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers (equal to 31 mpg).

Car buyers also have the choice of a LaCrosse equipped with a 1.5-liter engine with an output of 125 kW (168 hp) and a peak torque of 252 Nm (186 pounds-feet). This version consumes 6.2 liters per 100 kilometers (equal to 38 mpg).

GM did not disclose pricing for the redesigned LaCrosse, which has been a popular model. Last year, GM sold 83,000 LaCrosse sedans in China, and the brand's entire lineup has posted strong demand.

In January, Buick's China sales grew 39 percent from a year earlier to 138,907 units. The brand enjoyed strong demand for the Excelle GT, while sales of the Envision SUV doubled year over year.
