Default Buick LeSabre?

Did the most recent gen come with anything to write home about for an engine? They look bigger, beefier (and better IMO) than the Park Ave, but I am sure they only have the L36 unfortunately.

Prove me wrong?

That is all.

Mom has one. Replaced her 93 LeSabre. Good car, nothing to write home about. Different gear ratio than the Bvilles for both gens.

Park Avenue is a little boatier, heavier, and slightly nicer inside.

So even the newer gens relied on the L36? Never an L67 available? :(

LeSabre'* never saw the L67. Only L27 and L36 for FWD.

2.84 gear ratio when it had the 4T60E, I forget the new ratio.

LeSabre never got L67, and also didn't get the FE2 or F41, so the PA, which got both, is actually faster and tighter.

Not lighter. The PA is a C body, which is a modified (stretched and heavier) H body. The LeSabre is a true H body.

That'* actually a "T." It says tighter. Don't worry I did the same thing first time I saw it.
