The all-new 2010 LaCrosse will have a four-cylinder engine added to the lineup. The fuel-efficient, direct-injected Ecotec 2.4L engine will be the third offered in the luxury sedan. Backed by a fuel-saving, six-speed automatic transmission, the new powertrain combination is expected to deliver fuel economy of 30 mpg highway and 20 mpg city, making the LaCrosse one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its segment.
