Default Buick Regal Replacement..

Well, the images of the Buick Lacrosse, the car that'* going to replace both the Century and Regal have been released.. what are your comments? Personally I think it looks cheap and not good at all.. What do you think?


and here is the original prototype of what the Lacrose was originally GOING to be...


I personally like the original version better than the real version that is going to be released... that prototype would have been AWESOME if the grille were smaller and not huge like it is there.. oppinions anyone?

The lights remind me of Lexus...

Is it still going to have all of the crazy vioce recognition stuff that the concept had? Also, was this the one with the side opeing hood and a v-10 or something like that?

nope. It doesn't even have bucket seats, only bench seats are available. :( It has the 3800 Series III engine like the Grand Prix, but it is NOT supercharged, nor is it available with a supercharger anymore. IMO they're going way in the wrong direction totally.. They're stripping it of everything it was instead of making it even better.

Do you think that the front end of this concept car might be part of the next gen LeSabre(if they call it that)

The grille would look better with silver slats like the prototype.

Do you have any interior shots?
