LaCrosse CXL was first available in 2005. The CXL was the mid-range trim for the LaCrosse model, which replaced both the Buick Century and the Buick Regal the same year.
When the LaCrosse first hit the market, it was meant to compete with the
Lexus ES 300
The 2005 CXL was outfitted with a 200-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 engine and several available options and features, such as:
  • Wood-simulated dash trim
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Dusk-sensing headlamps
  • Dual-zone front climate control
  • 6-speaker stereo with speed-sensitive volume control
  • Remote keyless power door locks
  • Heated power mirrors
The CXL was the LaCrosse’s mid-level trim from 2005 to 2011 before Buick replaced the LaCrosse’s trim levels with a series of tiered option packages and equipment upgrades in 2012.
