Two different interior configurations are offered for the LaCrosse; six-passenger models have a front bench seat with a flip-down center armrest, large storage bin and column-mounted shifter, while five-passenger models have two bucket seats in front with a deep center-console storage area and console-mounted shifter.
The LaCrosse's interior has a crafted appearance, with chrome and woodgrain trim and soft-touch materials. Special attention was paid to keeping the interior quiet; for instance, the windshield and front glass use a special acoustical laminate, while steel laminate is used in front of the dashboard. Additional roof-pillar baffles, lower-body sound deadeners, a specially tuned exhaust system, and engine-compartment sound insulation help make the LaCrosse one of the quietest sedans inside.
The base CX and more luxurious CXL get a 200-horsepower, 3.8L iron-block V6 engine, while the Super derives its power from a 300-horsepower, 5.3L V8. Both engines are matched with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The V8 employs active fuel management, which cuts of the fuel supply to half of the cylinders during coasting or cruising to save fuel; the base V6 also boasts 28 mpg on the highway, according to EPA estimates.
To handle the added power, V8 models come with a specially tuned suspension with Bilstein monotube struts, larger front and rear brake rotors, and high-precision steering gear.
StabiliTrak stability control, which can apply brake force to individual wheels to restore stability, is standard on the LaCrosse, along with anti-lock brakes.
Standout features available on the LaCrosse include ultrasonic rear parking assist, rear passenger reading lamps, heated power outside mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and remote start.

Always use safety belts and the correct child restraints for your child's age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with air bags and the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner's manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information.)
