But the good news is, this car is not like other eco cars which are dull and slow. Interestingly, its quite lively with 303 horsepower (226 kW) and 264 lb.-ft. of torque (358 Nm) 3.6 liter V6.
The fuel economy boost that LaCrosse with eAssist offers comes from state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery system and electric motor-generator that enables regenerative braking capability.
