July 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Zimbrick Buick West, Madison Wisconsin's Buick dealership of choice since 1965, announces the arrival of the new 2012 Buick LaCrosse.

The 2012 Buick LaCrosse is a 4-door, midsize luxury sedan.  While the look and feel of the 2012 LaCrosse is very similar to that of the 2011 LaCrosse, there are handful of small changes and improvements.

New to the 2012 Buick LaCrosse is the name of the trim levels.  The 2011 LaCrosse was available in 3 trims: CX, CXL and CXS.  In model year 2012, the Buick LaCrosse comes in up to seven trim levels.  The four trim levels you will see most often at dealerships are the LaCrosse Convenience, the LaCrosse Leather, the LaCrosse Premium and the LaCrosse Touring.

In addition to the new eAssist hybrid technology coming out later this year, the 2012 Buick LaCrosse will also be available with a new, more powerful and fuel-efficient version of its direct-injected 3.6L V-6 engine. The engine is a no-additional-cost alternative on select trim levels to the standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine with eAssist.

The 3.6L V-6 with variable valve timing delivers a SAE-certified 303 horsepower (223 kW) on the front-wheel-drive LaCrosse – an increase of 23 hp (17 kW) – and 264 lb.-ft. (358 Nm) of torque with no loss in fuel efficiency (17 mpg city / 27 highway). An all-wheel-drive version, which is yet to be rated, also will be available.

The lighter-weight aluminum alloy V-6 is more powerful than its predecessor partly because of its new cylinder head design, which has a revised intake port design that enhances airflow to the combustion chambers. Larger-diameter intake valves in the heads and new, longer-duration intake camshafts help provide the engine’s boost in horsepower.

By using larger valves and holding them open longer, more air is pulled into the combustion chamber, for more powerful combustion. Often, the tradeoff for greater power is greater fuel consumption, but engineers optimized the fuel system for the engine’s performance parameters.

The Zimbrick dealership group began when John Zimbrick purchased the Buick franchise at the corner of Park and Regent Streets in Madison.  From that moment on, Zimbrick became the place to go for buying a new or used vehicle and for getting "Loving Care Service" to keep your vehicle on the road and looking great for years to come.

That approach has helped the Zimbrick family of dealerships grow to 16 franchises, offering a selection of over 2,000 quality vehicles, including the 2012 Buick LaCrosse.
