Most of us are probably familiar with Buick’s “That’s not a Buick!” campaign. The ads draw attention to the fact that Buick has entered new territory lately, making a lot of new fans in previously-untapped demographics and taking all of their old fans with them.
The new 2016 Buick LaCrosse has been recently spotted and it definitely has a lot of people proclaiming, “That’s not a Buick.” Of course, it might just be because the LaCrosse is all wrapped up in camouflage.
Despite the camo, Car and Driver was able to discern from the 2016 Buick LaCrosse spy shots that the LaCrosse has “a gently sloping backlight, a crease along its lower body, and a trademark character line that runs from the rear door to the haunches.” The full-size was refreshed in 2014.
For now, we can only speculate about much of what’s going under the camouflage. Car And Driver suspects that the 2016 Buick LaCrosse may be one of the first GM vehicles to receive the nine-speed transmission that is the lovechild of Ford and GM. There’s further suspicion that the LaCrosse will be blessed with GM’s turbocharged four-cylinder.
We at Ewing Buick GMC say—forget the specifics; under that camouflage is undoubtedly greatness!
