Interestingly the Enclave brochure identifies the three vehicle 2008 Buick family. In it is the LaCrosse Super. On the Buick.com website it demonstrates the LaCrosse 300 hp 323 lb-ft 5.3 V8 with Active Fuel Mgmt which will available in the fall.Canuck said:OK I searched and did not find the V8 question.
When do you think a small V8 with a little more HP and more torque? Current engines or is GM working on a new one.
What would the up charge be and MPG penalty
Good question for all the GM experts
The only way I see a V8 being offered is if Buick decides to offer an performance oriented model similar to sayadmin said:Given that one of the biggest selling points GM is pushing on these things is fuel economy, I'm not sure they are in a rush to get a V8 engine option out there. This is just a guess on my part, but it would somewhat undermine their marketing angle. They want these Lambdas to be seen as upscale full size (7/8 passenger) SUV/Minivan alternatives that beat all competition in MPG. That would no longer be the case if you put a V8 in it.
