Both the Lucerne Super and the Lucerne CXL Special Edition will be available this month. The Lucerne Super gets a 4.6-liter Northstar V-8, which produces 292 horsepower. To go with the power, it's outfitted with GM's magnetic ride control system. It also will come with the signature portholes, a new bright chrome waterfall grille that will serve as the new face of Buick, new front and rear fascias, integrated dual exhaust tips, rocker panels, and a special Super badge on the decklid. Inside it has a leather-wrapped instrument panel, leather seats with perforated suede fabric inserts for the outboard seating positions, and suede door-trim inserts, as well as a heated steering wheel. OnStar, XM and a Harman Kardon audio system are standard, as is a pricetag of $39,395 including destination.
The second new version is a Lucerne CXL Special Edition. It's offered with either the V-8, downrated to 275 horsepower, or the standard 3.8-liter V-6 with 197 hp. Making it a special edition are new 17-inch wheels, a new rear fascia, perforated leather seats, and a pricetag of $32,150.
