LeSabre was known for its affordability. Indeed, for many years, it was considered as the most affordable full-sized vehicle in the Buick division. At the beginning of its existence in 1959, Buick LeSabre was built to replace the nameplate Buick Special, and will continue to run until 2007, before Lucerne take its place.
Throughout its years in the market, Buick Lesabre possessed reliable Buick LeSabre parts and exciting equipments in uncompromised values. Today, the 2005 LeSabre offers long list of features purposely created and incorporated to provide superior power, comfort and appeal. Custom, Limited and Celebration Edition trims of LeSabre offer standard OnStar assistance, front bench for 6 people, and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes. However, the available powertrain is only the 3.8-liter V6. When coupled by 4-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with overdrive, the vehicle generates 205 horsepower.
The Buick LeSabre Custom is offering 3800 series II V6 engine, 4-wheel independent suspension with automatic rear-level control, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, electronic cruise control, engine block heater, rundown protected battery, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. It also has got daytime running lamps with Twilight Sentinel®, dual fold-away power remote mirrors, and two-speed with variable relay windshield wipers. The interior is filled with an air conditioning system, audio systems, front-seat arm rests that provide storage and dual cup holders, power 8 driver seat, cloth seats, driver-side manual lumbar adjuster, and overhead console. Like the Custom, LeSabre Limited also offer great items, which includes electric rear window defogger, steering wheel that houses cruise and audio controls along with the temperature control. It was also endowed with tilt wheel, trunk cargo net, trunk lock release, universal transmitter, and vanity visor mirrors. Another Buick LeSabre trim is the Celebration Edition. This one's offering StabiliTrak®, heated front seats, head-up windshield display, 16-inch chrome plated wheels special body and interior trim, and outside mirrors with turn signal lights.
The fact cannot be denied that other vehicle brands in this class' built and engineering display much more than Buick LeSabre's. It might be the reason why in the coming 2007 the platform shall be dropped for the scale of Buick Lucerne. In spite of that, this land machine still has more that can be developed and offered to customers than what LeSabre drivers see and feel by now. But basically, the Lucerne will just be the reincarnation of the LeSabre. Thus, even if the name disappeared in the market, the engineering and concept shall continue to exist.
