Buick, which once had a straight eight-cylinder engine, will offer half of that — a four-cylinder &mdash in the 2010 LaCrosse. It will be the first four-cylinder offered in a Buick since the 1998 Skylark.
The 2.4-liter Ecotec engine will produce 182 horsepower and 172 lb.-feet of torque. Buick expects about 25 percent of buyers to choose the engine over the 3.0 liter or 3.6 liter V-6s. The LaCrosse is a total redesign for 2010 and will take aim at competing with the Acura TL, Infiniti G37, and Lexus ES 350.
