GM knew Buick had to break the stigma of "cars driven by old people." And so Buick introduced the LaCrosse in 2005, hoping its sleeker styling and sportier performance would appeal to younger buyers. It wasn't a halfhearted attempt: A newly available 5.3-liter V8 gave the 2008 LaCrosse Sport a top speed of 150 mph, at that time the fastest production Buick ever built.
Currently in its second generation after a 2010 redesign, the LaCrosse continues to evolve with features like Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen and optional all-wheel drive. All of this has made Buick a viable player in the luxury midsize sedan market -- no matter the buyer's age.
