Default Does All LeSabres (the newer ones) have 2.84 gear ratios?

I'm asking this because, believe it or not, I like their style, they seem comfortable and in certain colors, they're really really cool looking plus they're a dime a dozen around here. So if I had to get a new car for whatever reasons (knocks on wood) I would probably look into the LeSabre. However I don't want a slow one (one that is equipped with a 2.84), does some LeSabres come with 3.05 gear ratios or not? And the LeSabre is one or two mods away from being a cool looking car

Last year on vacation me and my brother ended up renting a LeSabre. They are quite nice and I really liked it.

I would think the ones that had more options had the 3.05

I own a 2004 Buick Lesabre with the 3800 (of course ) and I believe it had the 284 gear ratio but the 1st gear compensates for it just fine and at 65 mph on flat ground, you'll pull 41 MPG, no BS

Well, the Regal GS is very hard to find. But I like large cars so that'* why I like Lesabres, now this doesn't mean I'm getting a LeSabre, I was just curious that'* all


Cheetah, you have a Buick, why i thought you have a Bonneville?

You could also look into the park ave or ultra, both came with optional SC and look alot like the LeSaber

Actually I beg to disagree. With some of the certain wheel styles they had lately and the blacked out grille, they look quite handsome. They are curvy cars and in some ways I think the interior is better than the Bonnies.
