Soon it'll be gone forever.
The Buick LaCrosse, like the Chevrolet Impala and Volt, and Cadillac XTS, will soon be no more. None of them are bad full-size sedans by any means, it’s just that no one wants to buy them anymore. Crossover SUVs are the reason why. So it goes. In order to make room on dealership lots for the 2020 crossover lineup, Buick is anxious to liquidate what’s left of LaCrosse stock, and that means one major thing: discounts.
The premium automaker is offering a new rebate that takes 16% off the LaCrosse’s sticker price. In some situations, that means up to $8,000 off. This new incentive is nationwide and is applicable to most 2019 LaCrosse sedans. What does "most” mean in this case? That’s actually a bit unclear but what we do know is that buyers must use GM Financial in order to get this offer. We wouldn’t be surprised if Buick is applying this offer to select LaCrosse trims with the most overstock.
For example, dealerships rarely keep base models around because they know customers typically want additional features. Therefore, the base LaCrosse and its MSRP of $30,495 may not be included, but again we’re simply speculating. In case you’re wondering, here’s the rest of the 2019 LaCrosse trims MSRP breakdown:
• Preferred – $34,595
• Essence – $37,295
• Premium – $39,595
• Sport Touring – $40,295
• Avenir – $45,795
Here’s the example offer Buick provided for a 2019 LaCrosse Avenir with an MSRP of $49,735: $1,708 price reduction below MSRP plus a $6,192 Purchase Allowance. Total discount: $7,900. Chances are there are various cash allowance amounts based on trim level and you’ll have to consult with a Buick dealer to confirm this.
Still, a brand new 2019 LaCrosse Avenir for $41,835? That’s one heck of a good deal. The LaCrosse Avenir is a true luxury sedan with goodies like a panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel, soft-touch perforated leather massaging front seats with contrast stitching, and unique wood trim. Under the hood is a 3.6-liter V6 with direct-injection that makes 310 hp and 282 lb-ft of torque. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder connected to an electric motor is available on lower trims.
This offer is only good until June 3 but chances are Buick will either extend this incentive or introduce a new one until all examples are sold. And once they’re gone, they’re gone for good.
