The New York International Auto Show will start in just a few days, but car manufacturers continue to reveal what they will bring to the Big Apple. Buick has just announced they will show the improved and redesigned LaCrosse. Changes happen in interior and the exterior of the car that still uses the Epsilon II platform also used by the Opel Insignia.

Starting with the front, the 2014 model will get an even bigger grille, LED head lamps and a redesigned bumper. At the back the LED treatment continues with the wraparound tail lamps, an improved bumper with new exhaust tips.
