The Lucerne Super stands out with a new bright chrome waterfall grille, front and rear fascias, integrated dual exhaust tips, rocker panels, and Super badge on the decklid. Exclusive aluminum wheels and premium all-season tires complete the look, complementing the vehicle's sport-touring attitude. The Lucerne Super is available in four exterior colors: Dark Mocha Metallic, Gold Metallic, Sharkskin and White Diamond. The interior comes in Ebony or Cocoa/Shale.
Four different Lucerne sedans are offered. Three of them--the CX, CXL, and CXL Premium are powered by a 3.9-liter V-6 with 227 horsepower. The Lucerne Super swaps in a 4.6-liter Northstar V-8 rated at 292 horsepower--it's GM's final use of the Northstar V-8 that once catapulted Cadillac back into the global luxury segment. Both the V-6 and the V-8 have ample low-end torque, with surprising fuel economy, and either can crack off acceptable acceleration.
The hallmarks of the Lucerne's interior are large seats and a quiet cabin. The traditional-looking Lucerne has vast interior space compared to pricier Japanese luxury sedans, and there's ample storage space in the cabin and trunk. The seats are wide and flat; a six-passenger model, the CX, is the only one with bench seating across the front and back, and it's the only one with cloth upholstery.
Lucerne Super comes with three standard equipment packages, including Driver Confidence, Luxury and Comfort & Convenience. OnStar's Directions & Connections with Turn-by-Turn voice-guided navigation, XM Satellite Radio and Harman Kardon audio system are also standard.
