Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Buick Lucerne is a very interesting vehicle that if combining some of the best design from older vehicles with some new technology to make it more usable and make it more interesting to a whole new generation of buyers. The newest model of Lucerne offers Bluetooth compatibility, XM NavTraffic, XM Radio, Adaptive Remote start and many more "smart" features that put it way ahead of the curve when it comes to implementation of technology. This is one area where Buick as a company has failed in the past, so they are now making every effort possible to catch up.

This new standard for Buick sedans has many features that have never been seen on any Buick model before. The base models start at under $30,000 but if you add on all the extras, you will be barely able to keep the price under $40,000. The Lucerne Super is the high end model that comes packed with extra features like heated and cooled seats, Harmon Kardon Sound and much more. The standard Lucerne comes with a 227 HP 3.9 liter V-6 engine, but if you opt for the Super package you will be upgraded to a V-8 that produces 292 HP.
