2008 Buick Lucerne vs. Its Competition

2008 Buick Lucerne Super
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Within this group, only the Buick Lucerne offers V-8 power.

However, the V-6 engines in these competitors nearly match the Northstar V-8, and the Ford and Mercury full-size sedans hook their V-6 to a six-speed automatic for added fuel savings.

Additionally, the Ford and Mercury offer the security of available all-wheel drive.

The Hyundai Azera is a surprisingly strong alternative to the big Buick and the Toyota Avalon, which also offers front-wheel drive and a large, powerful V-6.

Quick Specs
7.6
It rides like a classic Cadillac, but the 2008 Buick Lucerne has a slightly more modern spin on the full-size sedan.
7.6
The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.
