New York auto show: 5 cars of the future

2014 Buick LaCrosse
2014 Buick LaCrosse

Introduced in 2009, the Buick LaCrosse is ready for a redesign. The 2014 Buick LaCrosse full-size luxury sedan has refreshed styling as well as new advanced technologies.

Designers freshened up the Buick's look with wing-shape light-emitting-diode daytime running lamps and LED wraparound taillights, while the interior features a more contemporary look with a new central instrument panel and a floor console with more storage.

The seats have been redesigned for increased comfort and now feature four-way adjustable headrests, door panels with revised door locks, seat memory and trunk release controls.

There's now a long list of standard safety features including side-blind alert, lane-change alert, a forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic collision preparation. All these systems work with the safety-alert seat, which vibrates to alert the driver of possible situations that could result in an accident.

Available in a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the LaCrosse also has a choice of two powertrains: a light hybrid that uses a 2.4-liter engine with an electric motor to improve fuel economy or a 3.6-liter direct-injected V-6 engine.

The 2014 Buick LaCrosse goes on sale in summer 2013.
