The 2015 Buick LaCrosse, with built-in OnStar 4G LTE, is leading the way in this evolution of the family road trip, providing advancements in connectivity and passenger comfort.
OnStar 4G LTE allows passengers to connect up to seven mobile devices, such as tablets, laptops and smartphones, to the vehicle’s built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It works inside and around the vehicle, so everyone can stay connected at their favorite road trip stops.
With the LaCrosse’s 4G LTE connection, families can plan their route from the road and upload photos and videos from the car. OnStar’s 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hardware are standard on the new LaCrosse.
“Road trips today are greatly changed from the ones we took with our families 20, 10 or even five years ago,” said John McFarland, director, Global Connected Customer. “Navigation alone makes choosing stops much easier, and now with built-in connectivity, travelers have an abundance of information and entertainment at their fingertips.”
“Technology really has changed the way we travel today,” said David Lorenz, marketing manager, Pure Michigan. “Travelers are looking for easy access to information and they don’t necessarily just want that in advance of travel. Applications like OnStar and other technologies allow people to make quick, last-minute changes to their itinerary.”
The Buick LaCrosse provides a full safety suite, including
- eight standard air bags
- forward collision alert
- lane departure warning
- lane change alert
- side blind zone alert
- rear cross-traffic alert
- following distance indicator
- high-intensity discharge headlamps with articulating headlamps
- fog lamps
- head-up display
- collision preparation (with collision mitigation braking)
- full-speed-range adaptive cruise control
- the safety alert seat
OnStar’s 4G LTE will be available on the LaCrosse, Buick Verano, Regal, and Encore for the 2015 model year and will be available on all Buick products for the 2016 model year.
