6. Buick LaCrosse
No list of road-trip-worthy vehicles is complete without a including a Buick. The tri-shield brand’s LaCrosse large sedan is the epitome of an American car. It’s stylish and cushy, comfy and quiet. There’s plenty of room to stretch out and even take a nap.

Base price is in the neighborhood of $39,000 and that gets you a model powered by an “eAssist” 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This hybridized drivetrain delivers 25 mpg city and 36 on the highway, numbers that net the LaCrosse a combined score of 29 mpg. For greater performance, albeit with significantly reduced efficiency, a 3.6-liter V6 is also offered. America is spelled B-U-I-C-K.
