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.

Major changes included:

The LaCrosse was completely redesigned for 2010, but the biggest changes occurred in 2012 with the arrival of two new engines and a revamped trim structure with seven different levels. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder was paired with an electric motor in a mild hybrid powertrain in lower level trims, while a 3.6-liter V6 powered the upper levels. Two trims were dropped for 2013 and another for 2014, which also features the addition of six optional warning systems.

A fourth trim, the 2008 Super, came equipped with a 300-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8. Among this generation’s upgrades were anti-lock brakes in 2006, a new grille design in 2008, and the addition of optional Bluetooth connectivity in 2009.
