The 4-cylinder is the third engine choice in the all new 2010 Buick LaCrosse luxury sedan. Backed by a six-speed automatic transmission, the new powertrain combination is expected to deliver fuel economy of 30 mpg highway and 20 mpg city. Direct injection technology helps the engine deliver 182 horsepower (136 kW) and 172 lb-ft of torque (233 N·m).
