Buick announced that it is taking some of the sleek and futuristic design cues for the new LaCrosse from the Avenir concept model. The exterior is getting a complete redesign, from bumper to bumper. We can’t wait to see this new model in action.
According to USA Today, the Avenir premiered at several auto shows this year, and draws from several classic Buick designs. In fact, the model steals some looks from the 1954 Wildcat II, another concept model, which will give the Buick LaCrosse’s exterior design a unique retro look.
“The Avenir concept shattered expectations of what a Buick could be and the 2017 LaCrosse promises to do the same,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Its expressive design represents a break from convention and highlights the progressiveness in all new Buick models.”
Although there’s no official plan yet, Buick said that this look will be use on the LaCrosse by 2017, and would spread to other models in the lineup by 2018. This is just one more reason Buick is an industry leader when it comes to things like styling.
