2018 Buick Regal
Buick has resurrected this premium mid-size sedan with the 2010 concept. It is built not for those who love cheap cars, but it gives you high comfort and that is the big reason why its predecessor turns to be the favorite. Currently, Buick wants to improve its design and to prove that, they will release the new 2018 Buick Regal. Seeing this report, we have big expectation that it should be more than just an Opel Insignia but with different badge. In fact, these cars still share the same platform as before with the same body panels such as the rear quarters, the glasshouse and the roof.
There is a lot of suggestion given by auto experts that the new 2018 Regal should get a completely different look especially for the front end to give more premium design than before. The new design on this car probably will be used for the future models. So far, most other GM products used GM’s E2XX platform and we believe that this car will use it too. It means that it will be lighter, stiffer and safer than before.
There is a bit sign that the new platform will support this new generation to go out with enhanced materials compared to the original. This will be good to give higher level of comfort for both driver and passengers. In addition, it provides you more room for your relaxing time inside 2018 Buick Regal.
Beneath the hood, likely they will use the new engine from GM but they only provide petrol engine for US market. The possible engine to use will be 1.5 liter unit to generate about 180 hp for the base model and the bigger output is 2.0 liter to generate almost 300 hp. It seems impossible to install V6 engine for the regular model. On the contrary, rumors said that the new 2018 Buick Regal GNX will use 3.0 liter turbocharged V6 for producing 340 hp. This engine will be the competitor for the 2.7 liter in Sport Fusion, but the Regal will be the winner in sedan segment.
Release Date and Price
Likely, the official release of 2018 Buick Regal will be done in the beginning of 2017 as it is mentioned by rumors and unofficial reports. For the price, it should be started about $28,000 for the base and more than $50,000 for the top model. GNX Regal version is rumored to get major changes.
