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 began again in 2011. For the 2011 model year, Buick re-introduced the Regal to the North American market, positioned as an upscale sports sedan. Production and sales in China have actually continued considering that 1999.
2019 Buick Regal Design
Last year, the Buick Regal went through a big transformation that brought in a more coupe-like roofline, resulting in the “Sportback” name being slapped on this sedan. With this complete overhaul simply a year old, we expect no big changes to the 2019 Regal.
For 2018, Buick totally redid the entire look of the Regal. With its swoopy shape, sharp character lines, and coupe-like rear glass all still fresh, we expect absolutely nothing new here. We expect the very same to prove real inside, where it’ll retain its noticeably European cabin.
2019 Buick Regal Features
Anticipate standard equipment to mainly stay the very same. If this shows real, search for it to come with basic fabric upholstery, keyless ignition, rearview cam, 17-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch infotainment system, a seven-speaker audio system, and more.
2019 Buick Regal Engine
We likewise anticipate no changes under the hood. If this proves true, it’ll feature 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 automatic transmission in front-wheel-drive models and an eight-speed automated on all-wheel-drive models.
The IIHS has yet to perform safety tests on the 2018 Regal, so we do not have any hard data to pass on. What we do understand is that the necessary automated emergency braking is offered as a part of the optional Driver Confidence Package II. Offered all of its crash tests and the headlight test all turn in “Good” scores then the Regal will get the Top Safety Pick+ status many car manufacturers shoot for.
2019 Buick Regal Pricing & Release Date
We expect the 2019 Regal’s production to kick off in late July of 2018, and for it to begin striking display rooms quickly after that. Offered it’s a carryover, we don’t anticipate official prices to differ much from the current model, which varies from $25,915 to $39,995 (destination costs consisted of). Competitors will include the Acura TLX, Lincoln MKZ, and the Audi A4.
