Significant for the 2009 Buick Lucerne luxury sedan is a new 3.9L V6 engine that replaces the old 3.8L engine on all trims except the V8-powered Super and offers more power along with E85 FlexFuel capability. According to Buick Lucerne specifications, the V6 engine pumps out 227 hp and 237 lb-ft of torque, except in California-emissions states, where the numbers drop to 219 hp and 234 lb-ft. The Super packs a 4.6L V8 engine generating 292 hp and 288 lb-ft, and both engines send power to the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. Other new features include Bluetooth connectivity, XM traffic reporting and new wheel designs. Lucerne's inviting interior seats five or six passengers. EPA-estimated fuel economy comes in at 17 mpg city/26 mpg hwy and 21 mpg in combined driving for the V6 and 15/22/18 for the V8. Standard safety features are antilock disc brakes, traction control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Stability control and brake assist are standard on the upper CX and CXL trims as well as the Super, and are optional on the lower CXL trims.
The 2009 Buick Lucerne continues to be part traditional American luxury car, with a back seat spacious enough for adults, and part high-technology flagship. The new 3.9L V6 offers increased power in lower trim levels, while the Super model, with its sportier tuning and Northstar V8 engine, does much to break away from the staid image of Buicks past.
The 2009 Buick Lucerne sees few changes overall, but those few are fairly significant for the American luxury sedan. Chief among them is a new, more powerful 3.9L V6, which puts out 227 hp and 237 ft-lb of torque--30 more hp and 10 more ft-lb than the 3.8L V6 it replaces, with the added benefit of slightly better fuel efficiency. Additionally, the engine is FlexFuel-capable, allowing it to run on gasoline or 85% ethanol. The new engine will power CX and CXL models.
For 2009, Buick's Lucerne is offered in three different trim levels--CX, CXL, and Super. These models cover a broad range of automotive expectations, from a comfortable full-size car to a sporty, loaded luxury cruiser. The CX model has the softest suspension, while the CXL gets a slightly firmer 'Ride and Handling' setup, along with 17-inch wheels. Top Super models upgrade to a sport-tuned suspension with GM's Magnetic Ride Control, which uses a fluid with magnetically charged particles to quickly adjust the damping for either quick maneuvers or rough surfaces. CXS and Super models also get StabiliTrak stability control and brake assist in addition to the standard anti-lock brakes.
