Buick just announced that its future LaCrosse 4-door sedan 2010 will be offering a direct-injection, fuel-efficient, 2.4-liter 182-horsepower Ecotec 4-cylinder engine unit. In the city, it's capable of 20 mpg and on the highway - 30 mpg, GM says that the LaCrosse 4-banger will be right among the most efficient in this area.

The engine with direct-injection makes 172 lb-ft. torque, at 4,900 rpm. Buick affirms it will be basic on the entry-level CX LaCrosse only. So, the LaCrosse unit will still have the V6 direct-injected 3.0-liter, 255 horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 direct-injected, 280 horsepower. It's not clear how the 4-cylinder will be affecting the base price of LaCrosse, that had been set for 27,085 Dollars before destination.

General Motors puts the LaCrosse redesigned up against the Acura TL and Lincoln MKZ, that do not offer 4-cylinder powertrains. The carmaker is expecting that around 25 % of the shoppers LaCrosse will be winding up taking back home a 4-cylinder unit.
