Despite the classic styling, there are many high-tech features and options available on the 2010 Buick Lucerne. While the CX and CXL feature a standard AM/FM/MP3 stereo system, an optional upgrade includes touch-screen navigation with a 280-watt, nine-speaker Harmoan Kardon audio system, or for those that don't need navigation, there's an intermediate six-disc CD changer stereo upgrade. XM Satellite Radio is standard across all models, and a real-time traffic feature is available on the CXL Premium and Super. A sunroof, a lane departure warning system, and side blind-spot detection are also available. The Lucerne Super also adds heated and cooled driver and front passenger seats.
Motor Trend says the Buick Lucerne gets "an extra helping of technology," making special note of the "optional touch-screen navigation system," and "XM NavTraffic, a subscription service that displays real-time traffic information on-screen." Kelley Blue Book marks the remote-start option as a "favorite feature," and says that, "Once you've tried it you won't want to live without it."
Two available options packages up the features even further:. tThe Comfort & Convenience package adds dual-zone air conditioning, a Universal Home Remote, trunk cargo convenience net, Bluetooth phone connectivity, 16-inch steel spare wheel and tire (for CX and CXL models), or a 17-inch compact aluminum spare wheel and tire for the Super; the Driver Confidence package adds a number of safety and convenience features, including an anti-theft alarm system, a remote vehicle starter system, Rear Parking Assist, and GM's StabiliTrak stability control system with brake assist.
Edmunds notes that while the Buick Lacrosse has "greater availability of features" than the Park Avenue that preceded it, but it's not in a league with more modern alternatives. Out of the Lucerne lineup, however, Kelley Blue Book says the "V8-powered Super would be our choice for its full complement of features."
The 2010 Buick Lucerne offers a lot of modern features in a classic package-if you're willing to pay for the upgrades.
