What's New
Buick's Lucerne is the brand's flagship sedan, and comes standard with many nice features. For 2007, minor upgrades include GM's OnStar communications program-now with Directions & Connections featuring Turn-by-Turn navigation, which delivers directions from a live operator and records them for playback to guide you to your destination. A chrome grille is available on CXL and CXS trim levels, and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, plus a touch-screen navigation system are featured. New interior shades include Cocoa/Cashmere or Cocoa/Shale, and Light Quartz Metallic and Gold Mist Metallic are the new exterior hues.

The Lucerne sedan is priced above the LaCrosse, which means an even higher level of features and luxury. For starters, the CX and CXL trim levels receive the 3.8-liter V-6 good for 197 hp and 227 lb.-ft. of torque, while the CXS gets the 4.6-liter Northstar V-8-borrowed from the Cadillac division-that produces 275 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque (the V-8 is an option on the CXL). As in the LaCrosse, both Lucerne engines are matched to 4-speed automatic transmissions. The Lucerne provides drivers with a choice of suspension/tire combinations, from mild to sporty, depending on the desired level of road feel.

Besides a comprehensive list of standard features such as air conditioning, redundant audio and cruise controls on the steering wheel, power windows, and remote keyless entry, the CXS offers a luxury package that adds heated, 8-way power driver and front passenger seats, a heated/leather-wrapped steering wheel, and memory presets for selected features. The CXS also gets StabiliTrak, GM's stability control program that helps keep the car moving on its intended path should the driver lose control. Brake Assist is another safety feature on the CXS that helps apply full pressure to the brake pedal during an emergency braking situation.

The Lucerne also features OnStar, with safety and security features that deliver peace of mind as well as help with directions and available concierge services. The Lucerne is also engineered using Quiet Tuning technology, which adds major sound-deadening materials-from the engine to the underbody to the laminated window glass-in an effort to provide occupants with the quietest possible cabin environment.
