Special features for 2008

The 2008 Buick Lucerne continues to be part traditional comfortable American luxury car, with a back seat spacious enough for adults, and part high-technology flagship. The new Super model, with its sportier tuning and V8 engine, especially breaks away from the image of Buicks being sedate.


Upgraded for 2008, the Lucerne gets a mid-model refresh with several new safety design features that transition it closer to the luxury car segment than ever before. The base model features a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 200 horsepower, and the 3.6-liter increases power to 240. The Lucerne Super is the most powerful of the group (replacing last year’s CSX model) with a NorthStar V8 generating 292 horsepower and 288 lb-ft. of torque – up in horsepower and down slightly in torque from its predecessor. Now standard on the Super is Stabilitrac and Magnetic Ride, both options that were available on the prior model.
