Our final destination on our experience Buick tour took us to Los Angeles. The LA Auto Show is the last of the big yearly auto shows and gives manufacturers a platform to introduce their 2017 premier vehicle. Buick took this opportunity to show everyone the 2017 Buick LaCrosse. The first thing I noticed when I took a closer look at the LaCrosse was the new tri-colored Buick logo. Buick has obviously been working hard to change their image and the new logo looks stylish. However, people don’t buy cars for the look of the logo on the front. As I stepped into the LaCrosse the interior is simply beautiful. Combining luxury, style and technology the 2017 LaCrosse has everything you are looking for in a luxury vehicle. Being a golfer, I was extremely impressed with the trunk space. You can actually fit a complete foursome worth of clubs and gear in the trunk. I dare you to try that with any other sedan. Actually with the new sleek style and v-6 engine it’s more of a sports car than luxury vehicle, or a great combination of both.
As I sit in my airline seat travelling back to New Hampshire, I look back at 2015 and the entire Experience Buick program. From the auto show in Detroit where Buick introduced us to the Avenir and Cascada to the recent launch of the LaCrosse, Buick has certainly accomplished changing my view of their brand. Being a
guy who typically buys a new car every couple of years, my next vehicle search will include a stop at my local Buick dealership. In addition to the changes Buick has told us about, I also met some incredibly talented bloggers along the way. I would encourage everyone to click on the links below to see some of their work. I’ll admit it, when we first arrived in Detroit, I had no idea how this group would blend together. I can honestly tell you the best part of this experience was making new friends with some great people. I also learned a lot about areas that were not on any of my upcoming travel plans. Detroit, Indianapolis, New York City and LA impressed me with everything their cities had to offer. It was great to see the history and taste the local cuisines. OK, I can’t lie, some of the food was far to fu-fu for me, but I was always able to find some meat and potatoes on the menu.
I can’t thank Buick enough for selecting me to participate in this program. When I signed up way back at the beginning of the year, I had no idea of all the things I would learn on this journey.
