The Buick Regal is a high end mid-sized automobile that was very first presented by Buick for the 1973 model year. North American production ended in 2004 and started once again in 2011. For the 2011 model year, Buick reintroduced the Regal to the North American market, placed as a high end sports sedan. Production and sales in China have actually continued because 1999.
In 2015, the Buick Regal went through a big improvement that generated a more coupe-like roofline, leading to the “Sportback” name being slapped on this sedan. With this total overhaul simply a years of age, we anticipate no huge changes to the 2019 Regal.
For 2018, Buick totally renovated the whole appearance of the Regal. With its swoopy shape, sharp character lines, and coupe-like rear glass all still fresh, we anticipate absolutely nothing new here. We anticipate the exact same to show real within, where it’ll maintain its clearly European cabin.
Anticipate basic devices to mostly stay the exact same. If this shows real, search for it to come with basic fabric upholstery, keyless ignition, rearview electronic camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch infotainment system, a seven-speaker audio system, and more.
We likewise anticipate no changes under the hood. If this shows real, it’ll include a basic 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horse power and 260 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through a nine-speed automated transmission in front-wheel-drive models and an eight-speed automated on all-wheel-drive models.
The IIHS has yet to carry out security tests on the 2018 Regal, so we do not have any tough information to hand down. Exactly what we do understand is that the necessary automated emergency situation braking is readily available as a part of the optional Driver Confidence Package II. Offered all its crash tests and the headlight test all turn in “Good” ratings then the Regal will get the Top Safety Pick+ status numerous car manufacturers aim for.
We anticipate the 2019 Regal’s production to start in late July of 2018, and for it to begin striking display rooms soon after that. Offered it’s a carryover, we do not anticipate main prices to differ much from the present model, which varies from $25,915 to $39,995 (location charges consisted of).
