The all-new 2018 Buick Regal GS was just unveiled and in the meantime here are a few important facts. This sporty sedan is new from head to tail light, but the biggest update is found behind shield badge. The wheels are bigger to 19 inches to be exact, and hiding behind them are performance brakes with Brembo calipers.
2018 Buick Regal GS Engine
The last Buick Regal GS had four cylinders 259 horsepower and four doors. But because more of everything is always better. The all-new 2018 Regal GS has more of everything I just mentioned. The 2018 Regal GS starts with the same five-door hatchback configuration as the Regal Sportback. However instead of a four banger under the hood it wields a 3.6 liter v6, good for 310 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. a 9 speed automatic is standard as is all-wheel-drive. Since the car can't possibly be sporty unless it also looks the part, Buick added sporty or front and rear bumpers side skirts and the rear spoiler.
Is a brand new 9 speed automatic transmission that should make the most of all those horses while minimizing fuel consumption. After the gearbox we find an intelligent twin clutch all-wheel drive system for enhanced traction. Improving the GS road-holding capability is continuous damping control that reacts to changing road surface is up to 500 times per second.
The 2018 Buick Regal GS has new drivetrain, now I've got to say like other versions of GM's 3.6 liter V6. This one pulls with enthusiasm and it is very smooth and snarly sound. To it also this brand new 9 speed automatic gearbox seems to play even though we don't have any paddle shifters up here, and the up shifts are almost imperceptible really well done.
2018 Buick Regal GS Interior
The 2018 Buick Regal GS made sure to throw a whole bunch of new kit at the interior. Now obviously additional tuning work will be done before this car it's the market. So it's good bet that's going to be even better once this car goes on sale. As for the interior it's a premium place that's punctuated by heated cooled and massaging front seats. Apple CarPlay and Android auto compatibility are standard. There's also a generous touch screen and instrument cluster display, both of which should span 8-inches. Sport and GS modes can also be accessed by a switch on the center console.
A head-up display is optional as is a suite of active and passive safety systems including autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. On standard excellent 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot is present and accounted for as well. Sounds expensive? Well not really.
2018 Buick Regal GS Price and Release Date
Even after a very short test drive, I can tell you that this 2018 Buick Regal GS shows enormous promise. And it should help keep pace with more established luxury automakers like Lexus and Acura. The 2018 Buick Regal GS comes in at under $40,000 including destination which makes it only a couple grand more expensive than the all-wheel-drive 2017 Regal GS. It goes on sale in the first quarter of 2018.
