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.

    No SRT Viper ..What a shame a manual gear box and powerful engine in a car that’s so awesome to cruse in it make you take the long way to your destination

  • Rickers

    Yea, your car is so awesome… they discontinued it.

  • Mick

    Actually they sold well. Also some cars liek the RSX were discontinued because they weren’t good or didn’t sell well but for other reasons. With the RSX the new Civic Si in 2006 had the same powerful engine so that was one reason. Also Acura wanted to get out of the sporty 4 banger racer boy car market.

    Damn shame most of these cars are unattainable for the masses… Why not include a couple reasonable cars in the mix? How about a Miata? I would take a Hardtop Miata over the Mercedes and keep the leftover 80K in my pocket!
