The new LaCrosse is at once familiar looking and all-new. This is a good thing.

The new wingform grille adapted from Buick's very successful recent concept cars looks good hear.

Dramatic taillights emphasize the design's width.

From this rear three-quarter vantage, you can see how the Sweep Spear side contouring gives the rear of the car substantial haunches.

Silver paint shows off the sheetmetal's contours well.

The 3.6-liter V-6 may share its displacement with last year's engine, but it's all new.

Buick's trademark VentiPorts are here, albeit meekly. They're non-functional and they could probably disappear without really affecting the design.
