'Buickle8abre. The morelogical we made it, the betterlooking itgot. Without changing its character as an elegant, 6-passenger automobile, we've done some very logical things to the 1980 LeSabre. For instance, compared with last year's model, its tires are designed to roll more freely. The entire car is lighter. And it has been reshaped, millimeter by millimeter, to deal more decisively with wind resistance. There's impressive logic under the hoods of our LeSabres, too. The even-firing 3.8 liter V-6 is standard, and generates 18 EPA estimated mpg and 24 mpg on the high way. The LeSabre Sport Coupe's standard power comes from a turbocharged version of the 3.8. And the 4.1 liter V-6 is available. EPAEST. EST EST.DRIVING ESTHWY MPG. HWY. RANGE RANGE 18 24 450 600 The 1980 LeSabre. We made it more logical. And it got better looking along the way. Talk to your Buick dealer about buying or leasing one. Remember: Compare the boxed estimates to the estimated mpg of other cars. You may get different mileage and range depending on your speed, trip length and weather. Estimated mileage and range will be less in heavy city traffic. Your actual highway mileage and range will probably be less than the highway estimates. Estimated driving range based on EPA-estimated mpg rating and highway estimates. These range estimates are obtained by multiplying LeSabre's fuel tank capacity of 25 gallons by the EPA and highway estimates. Estimates higher in California. Buicks are equipped with GM-built engines supplied by various divisions. See your dealer for details. The 4.1 liter V-6 and the V-6 Electra are not available in California.
