Upcoming 2017 Buick LaCrosse Design to be Based on Popular Avenir Concept

2017 Buick LaCrosse Design

The 2017 Buick LaCrosse’s design is rumored to be based on the prominent Avenir.

Buick has been keeping its lips sealed about the upcoming 2017 model year Buick LaCrosse – until now. Recently, Buick revealed that the 2017 Buick LaCrosse will be based off its Avenir Concept, which debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Plus, Buick released a sneaky teaser image of the 2017 LaCrosse, which cleverly only shows us the front fascia of the model. The rest of the vehicle is veiled in shadow. You can check out the 2017 LaCrosse teaser picture right here.

Though Buick has confirmed that the 2017 LaCrosse will be based on the Avenir Concept, the automaker hasn’t said much else in the way of fuel efficiency, horsepower, and other stats. Hopefully, that information is soon to follow.

The 2017 Buick LaCrosse is scheduled to get its worldwide debut in November 2015 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

How to Make a Winter Safety Kit For Your Car

Winter Safety Kit

As the weather cools down and the conditions begin to get snowy, it’s more important than ever to be prepared with a winter safety kit in your vehicle. Here’s a short list of what to include in a safety kit to get you started:

  • Roll up a nice, warm blanket, just in case you ever get stranded in the cold.
  • Similarly, it’s a good idea to stash some warm socks, scarves, hats, gloves, and perhaps even an extra coat if you have space.
  • In the winter, you may also want to have a shovel to move snow.
  • Just like in any safety kit, include a basic first-aid kit, which should include antibiotic ointment and bandages.
  • Keep a nice supply of fresh, clean water, which can either be used for drinking or to wash out a wound.
  • Be sure to include a flashlight and extra flashlight batteries.
  • Lastly, if you can, it won’t hurt to have an extra, charged cell phone available, with a list of emergency phone numbers.
