2018 Buick Regal GS is officially out, price starts at $39,990

The long awaited 2018 Buick Regal GS has finally been revealed by the company, following several leaked photos and information in the past few months. The thing is, if you’ve been keeping up with the leaked reports, there won’t be surprises left for you. All of the details have been pretty much covered. Basically, the Regal GS is a five-door, all-wheel drive with a sexy style and a touch of luxury. Needless to say, it’s also performance-focused.

Starting off with performance, under the hood is a 3.6 liter naturally-aspirated V6 that generates 310 horsepower and 282 pound-feet of torque. Although this is an upgrade from the last turbocharged GS, the Regal GS’ performance is not as impressive as we expected, since the LaCrosse has the same output. Also, it pales in comparison when being compared to the Chevrolet Camaro that comes with a 3.6 liter mill, producing 335 horses. But not to worry as the 310 horsepower should be fast enough for a nice cruise. It also features an integrated auto start/stop and cylinder deactivation.

A nine-speed automatic transmission will be tied with the engine, which will also give power to the all-wheel drive setup with an active twin clutch that will enable power to be shuffled between the front and rear wheels so it can perform better. Moreover, the Regal GS comes standard with Buick’s Interactive Drive Control system where the driver can choose driving modes like standard, Sport, or GS for a more focused drive. When driving, the system makes use of the company’s Continuous Damping Control that can adjust suspension as much as 500 times per second.

Chinese version of the 2018 Buick Regal GS is officially unveiled

Buick finally reveals the 2018 model year of the Regal GS, except the one we are seeing is for the Chinese market. But not to worry as the American version of the sporty midsize sedan will look almost identical as this one. In fact, the previous models look the same in both countries.

So far, we have only seen two images of the new 2018 Buick Regal GS. One of the exterior, and the other one of the interior. Based on what we can see here, the 2018 model year now comes with sportier bumpers with a pair of huge air vents. The new grille gets a mesh pattern, which is different from the standard Regal and the Tourx wagon that come with vertical fins.

Moving on to the profile of the Regal GS, its side skirts have become bulkier, paired with a set of huge black alloy wheels with Brembo brake calipers in red that acts as a contrast. As for the rear, the sedan will be having a more aggressive bumper and larger trapezoidal exhaust tips like the ones we saw in the spy shots earlier on.

2018 Buick Regal GS will get a V6 engine delivering 310 hp

The new 2018 Buick Regal GS is definitely coming to town, it turns out, and it will do so with a powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine that could deliver 310 horsepower of output. This piece of information isn’t a guess, but a detail leaked from the brand’s own magazine.

Quite a lot of details have already been known to the public about the new Buick Regal GS, which is essentially the performance-oriented version of the Regal. Most of the information was known thanks to the probing eyes of our journalistic colleagues. However, it should be noted that Buick and General Motors – intentionally or unintentionally – leaked details about the new Regal GS.

When Buick unveiled the next generation of the Regal, it only took the wraps off the Sportback and TourX wagon forms, which would be launched later this year. Remarkably missing from the debut of the next-gen Regal was the highly anticipated GS model. Buick hasn’t officially revealed any details about the next-gen Regal GS, but the brand is expected to offer such a model considering the fact that the previous generation has a GS version and this performance-oriented was quite a hit.

Hagerty Insurance placed the Regal GS on its “2012 Hot List”

The 2012 Buick Regal GS has been placed on Hagerty Insurance’s “2012 Hot List” for mass-market vehicles with a suggested retail price below $100,000. The classic car insurance firm applauds the Regal GS, which it believes would be a future collectible. Specifically, Hagerty likes Buick’s decision to create performance sedan with a manual transmission, explaining that Buick is offering real three-pedal manual transmissions at a time when sporting makes don’t. General Motors North America President Mark Reuss said that the Regal GS is a “unique and thrilling vehicle for the Buick brand.”

Reuss added that the Regal GS deserves to be considered as one of the best built by Buick. Hagerty said that to be mentioned on the annual Hagerty Hot List, the vehicle has to be geared toward the driving enthusiast “beyond just being a form of transportation.”

”In order to be included on the annual Hagerty Hot List, the vehicle must be geared toward the driving enthusiast beyond just being a form of transportation,” said Hagerty.”Like the other Buick classics listed here, the 2012 Regal GS will be remembered more than most of its peers for many years down the road.”

GM announced today that the all-new 2012 Buick Regal GS will carry a price tag of $35,310, including the $860 destination charge.

This means that the engine delivers more torque than Acura TSX V-6, Audi A4 Sport, Lexus IS 250 and Volvo S60 T5 (the torque represents the twisting force that gets a vehicle moving and what the driver feels when accelerating – which translates into more fun when driving the car).

The Buick Regal GS unveiled a stick-shift sedan at the Detroit Auto Show that is capable of reaching 60 mph in less than six seconds. Jim Federico, vehicle line executive for global mid-sized architecture at General Motors Co., said that he is convinced that launching a vehicle such as this would upgrade Buick's performance image immediately.

The GS, which stands for Grand Sport, was a badge worn by Buick's performance cars in the 1960s and '70s. The 2011 Regal is based on GM's global mid-sized front-drive platform and is essentially a rebadged Opel Insignia.

Almost all of the Regal GS performance upgrades have been adopted from the Insignia OPC, which is currently sold in Europe. The Regal will be available starting in the second quarter while the Regal GS production vehicle is expected next year. Instead of rear drive and a V-8, the Regal GS has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine generating an estimated 255 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque.
