2004 BUICK LESABRE CELEBRATES TWO INDUSTRY MILESTONES
Celebrating the Buick LeSabre's 11th straight year as the best-selling full-size car in the Ú.S. market, a Celebration Edition of LeSabre is again being offered for the 2004 model year.
The Celebration Edition, highly popular in the 2003 model year, returns with all the features of the LeSabre Limited plus a blacked-out grille, 16-inch chrome-plated wheels, outside rearview mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, special interior trim and a choice of Crimson Pearl, Light Bronzemist or new White Gold Flash premium exterior paint.
Other features include StabiliTrak, an advanced integrated vehicle stability control system that helps the driver maintain control in a skid or slide, and a head-up display for in-line monitoring of instrumentation readouts. Buick plans to build 15,000 Celebration Editions for the 2004 model year.
For 2004, new features in LeSabre models include enhanced acoustic material in the doors, quarter panels and trunk area to further improve quietness; three added exterior colors - Platinum Metallic, Glacier Blue Metallic and Steelmist Metallic; and a new Harmony seat cloth offered with all interior color schemes.
LeSabre, offered in Custom and Limited models as well as the Celebration Edition, is again powered by Buick's highly acclaimed 3.8L 3800 V-6 engine coupled to an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
