2011 Buick Lucerne Body Structure

The 2011 Buick Lucerne is a carryover vehicle from the original launch of the model in 2006.  The Buick Lucerne has not been covered on the site yet.  Take a quick look at the inserts in the A and B pillars,  just note that the inserts do not run the full lengths of the pillars.  The Structure/safety cage of this vehicle received a “Good” rating from the IIHS and a “Great” rating in the NHTSA Frontal Crash Test.  Just remember, this is a big body car!

There are a total of six airbags in the Buick Lucerne. The airbags use an sensors that monitor the weight of the front occupants and the position of the seat to determine the best inflation size of the airbag. Front seat side airbags and overhead airbag curtains are also in the vehicle so remember to pull the trim covers and verify the inflator locations before you cut.
