It's perfectly possible. I'm sure you could conceivably tune a conventional LaCrosse to get 37MPG on the highway if you optimized for fuel consumption at the cost of performance. You would be amazed the fuel consumption numbers you can get if you don't care that it takes 20 seconds to get up to 60mph.

I suppose I made the assumption that they wouldn't cripple performance between the two models. Like you say, that might not be the case.

Looking at the Highway fuel economy test, it is definitely more city-like than most of the highway driving I do. Only testing for 10 miles with an average speed of 48 MPH is more like in town freeway driving.

i think the worst part here s the name: 'eAssist' sounds more like a device created to help buick's geriatric customers than a mild hybrid system.

that was my first thought when I saw the headline...
