Buick LaCrosse Conquers Large Car Competitors in the 2018 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study
Buick ranks third in highest overall vehicle dependability among all brands, and it comes out on top among all mass-market brands, according to the 2018 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study.
The study results also highlighted the LaCrosse sedan, which ranked first in the Large Car segment for this year’s dependability award. Despite the popularity of the 2015 Chevy Impala and 2015 Ford Taurus, these two vehicles came in second and third places.
While the study evaluated the 2015 model of the LaCrosse over the past three years, this model continues to deliver superior reliability to consumers as the 2018 model year plays out. The first factor that the 2018 LaCrosse offers is pleasing performance. You can upgrade the standard 2.5-liter engine to a 3.6-liter V6; paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain dishes out a healthy 310 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque.

Power wouldn’t mean much without complementary stability and safety technology, however. Thus, the 2018 LaCrosse comes with anti-lock brakes, Teen Driver setting, safety trunk latch with manual release, and rear park assist, to give you peace of mind in a variety of situations.
This year’s model also boasts eAssist light electrification and three new color choices (Red Quartz Tintcoat, Satin Steel Metallic, and Dark Slate Metallic), to provide Buick fans with even more customized options.
Even though many are pursuing crossovers and SUVs this year, to continue with 2017’s trend, not everyone wants such a large vehicle. The reputation for safety, stability, and soundness that the LaCrosse has should continue to attract consumers who prefer these three qualities in a more compact form.
