The 2010 Buick LaCrosse is the first entry from the tri-shield brand since the super sleeper Regal GSE that's got our attention. Even better, the price for the new hotness is just $27,835.

At $27,835, you get a LaCrosse equipped with a 255 HP 3.0-liter direct-injection V6 with a six-speed automatic and 17-inch wheels. Moving up the scale a notch is the CXL which dons 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, and leather for $30,395, with all-wheel drive a $2,175 option.The big poppa LaCrosse CXS, with the 3.6-liter direct-injection 280 HP V6, all-wheel-drive starts, heated and cooled seats, and other fancy bits starts at $33,765 Options like the active dampers, automatic parking system, rear seat DVD players and premium audio package are all options to pile on top.


Considering GM has set it's sights on the Lexus ES 350 at $35,145, which isn't exactly a looker lately, we suspect the LaCrosse will sell like hotcakes. Well, hotcakes everybody thinks are only eaten by old people. We just want to don our blue wigs and throw it at a track to see what this car can do. [Edmunds Straighline]
