Powertrains and Performance
The front-wheel-drive Buick Lucerne offers engines from which to pick. The CX & CXL models are equipped with a three.9-liter V6 producing 227 hp & 237 pound-feet of torque. The heart of the Tremendous model is a four.6-liter V8 with 292 hp & 288 lb-ft of torque. Both are backed by a four-speed automatic transmission.
EPA-estimated fuel economy for the V6 is 17 mpg city/27 mpg highway & 21 mpg combined. The V8 is understandably thirstier at 15/23/18.
The Lucerne has not been rated using the government's new, more strenuous 2011 crash testing procedures. Its 2010 ratings (which are not comparable to the new 2011 tests)were an ideal stars for front occupant protection in head-on collisions & stars for front & rear side-impact protection.
Every 2011 Buick Lucerne is equipped with antilock brakes, traction & stability control, front side-impact airbags & side curtain airbags. In testing, a Lucerne came to a cease from 60 mph in 137 feet -- disappointing for a automobile of this type & cost.
In testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Lucerne earned a top rating of "Good" for frontal-offset collisions & an "Acceptable" score in side-impact testing.
Interior Design and Special Features
One time underway, the Lucerne provides a serene atmosphere with little road noise. In this surroundings, the optional Harman Kardon audio process shines. The seats are comfortable, with ample room back and front, and a Lucerne advantage is the ability to stool six if needed. The huge trunk swallows up to 17 cubic feet of cargo, and a pass-through can accommodate longer items.
The Lucerne's roomy cabin is a comfortable place to spend time, if you are not saddled with driving chores. The dashboard features legible gauges, intuitive controls and a simple, straightforward layout.
