Buick updated the LaCrosse for the 2018 model year with a standard mild-hybrid system and a lower base price, but that was only the beginnng.
The 2018 Buick LaCrosse will also be Buick's first sedan to carry its new Avenir trim, which is positioned as a top-tier offering with more standard features and fancier materials throughout.
The Avenir trim debuted on the 2018 Buick Enclave three-row crossover.
The LaCrosse Avenir looks a little different than the rest, thanks to special upper and lower front grilles.
Nineteen-inch alloy wheels are standard, with optional 20-inchers for a few extra bucks.
And, as one might expect, there are a few Avenir badges thrown onto the body for good measure.
