2006 Buick Lucerne preview Review, Pricing, and Specs.

2006, Buick, Lucerne preview

Ed Welburn, chief designer for General Motors, loves the design of the Buick Lucerne. Welburn thinks the Lucerne is, ... refinement, a well executed car with a sculpted metal line that goes from one end of the car, over the top all the way to the front.

Buick is trying to appeal to the import luxury crowd. The Lucerne is taking over in size where the LeSabre left off. It still has the cues on the exterior of Buick and the two-toning red with black was a welcome package.

An appeal for the younger folks is that the Lucerne is the first Buick to offer a V-8 in more than a decade. A V-8 is a must if Buick is going to try to appeal to the luxury segment.

There are three trim levels available on the Lucerne, CX, CXL, CXS. The Lucerne will be manufactured at GM's Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
