After the 2014 LaCrosse, Buick also introduced today the 2014 Regal and 2014 Regal GS models at the New York Auto Show. Designed to be a sportier and smarter evolution of the brand’s dynamic midsize sedan, the 2014 Regal also introduces new safety features such as the new radar and camera for surround protection, including Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Change Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Collision Mitigation Braking.
The Adaptive Cruise Control is also offered. For those who don’t know, this system senses traffic in front of the Regal to adjust speed, including stopping the vehicle in heavy traffic and accelerating again.
Regarding the design, the 2014 Buick Regal comes with new front and rear styling with signature wing-shape LED daytime running lamps and LED taillamps. Inside, the 2014 Regal features redesigned central instrument panel and console along with a new fashion interior trim combination. Under the hood, there is a new 2.0-liter turbo engine delivering 18 percent more horsepower in the Regal Turbo.
The 2.0-liter engine delivers 259 hp (193 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. The available Haldex all-wheel-drive system helps make the most of traction in all driving conditions and also enhances the cornering capability of the Regal GS when driven in the GS mode of the Interactive Drive Control System.
A 2.4-liter engine with eAssist light electrification technology is also available on the 2014 Regal. The 2.4-liter engine delivers 182 hp (136 kW) and 172 lb-ft (232 Nm) of torque. Six-speed automatic transmissions are matched with both engines and a six-speed manual is available in the Regal GS. Electric power steering is now featured on all models.
