Benefits of Driving a 2011 Buick Lucerne Sedan

The Lucerne is Buick's roomy, comfort-oriented large sedan, and it appeals to those who are looking for a traditional, conservatively styled American luxury sedan that doesn't sacrifice interior space for performance. Yet in Lucerne Super form, it offers a much more exciting driving experience compared to rivals such as the Toyota Avalon and Hyundai Azera. And, with many accident-avoidance features standard even on the mid-level CXL and EXL, the Lucerne's is at the head of the class with respect to safety. The top of the line Super's smooth, sophisticated V8 gives the Lucerne an exciting performance character while staying quiet and dignified.

What's new for 2011?

For 2011, GM's StabiliTrak stability control system is now standard across the entire model line. Sound systems have been revamped, including one with an integral navigation system. The base sound system has an auxiliary input jack and MP3 capability, and 5-passenger models of the Buick Lucerne get a new USB port.

Model Strengths

  • Comfortable, quiet interior
  • smooth, pillowy ride
  • V8 power available
  • safety and accident-avoidance technologies

Model Review

The Lucerne now comes in four different models: base CX, mid-level CXL and EXL, and top-of-the-range Super. While most of the lineup is powered by a 227-horsepower, 3.9-liter V6, the Super gets a 292-horsepower, 4.6-liter Northstar V8 engine. Both engines in the front-wheel-drive Lucerne come with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
