Five Fun Facts About The 2017 Buick LaCrosse

We recently returned from the west coast after sampling Buick’s latest flagship sedan, the 2017 Buick LaCrosse. During our time we were bombarded with facts, information and more from Buick marketing gurus, engineers and from the car itself.

So, we compiled five fun facts for you about the 2017 LaCrosse down below, ranging from design, to how the blinker works. Check out our first drive of the 2017 Buick LaCrosse here. Without further ado:

A gorgeous ’51 Chevy pickup sits on the lot, along with a 1968 Cadillac DeVille with a cow skull affixed to the grill. There’s a full basketball court, though 63-year‑old Lofgren doesn’t play as much as he used to — he’s going easy on his titanium hips, replaced just a few years ago after a life of pick-up basketball games and onstage stunts. Lofgren’s short; his low center of gravity encouraged an aggressively physical performing style, incorporating dramatic back flips and guitar acrobatics.

Lofgren’s career as a sideman is one of the most illustrious in rock ‘n’ roll history. Playing alongside Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Ringo Starr, he’s toured the world and performed for massive crowds. But,
