Buick Regal was originally introduce six years ago and since then has become one of the most popular vehicles produced by this GM’s daughter company. The main reason for this success is because Buick Regal is worth its price. It offers more than others for the same amount of money. Ever since it was released huge change hasn’t happened and the time has come for this car to be modified. However, this year engineers decided to focus change on the interior. That doesn’t mean exterior was neglected but just interior is way different than before. Perhaps it reminds you of the Grand National but if you look closely you will see that it has lots of different features. Of course, 2016 Buick Regal has its pros and cons and we will try to present all of them in this review.
2016 Buick Regal Engine
All new engines are going to be introduced. The base engine is 1.6 liter turbocharged which will be the only available engine on the Chinese market. This engine comes with an output of 200 lb-ft of torque and 180 horsepower. This is expected to be quite satisfying considering the size of the car. Buick surprised us with LaCrosse and its hybrid engine and we might have the same thing with new Regal. Many experts expect that 2016 Buick Regal is going to come with electric motor. If that is true then it is most likely to see same 1.6l combined with an electric motor. It is believed that it won’t exceed 200 horsepower but power is not important here but fuel efficiency. There are no official figures yet but with electric motor it will save up to 40% of the fuel. In addition, there is going to be one more option, 2.0l turbocharged. This engine can deliver 280 HP and same amount of torque. This engine and others as well are going to be mated to nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Interior and Exterior of 2016 Buick Regal
Exterior is going to face few refreshments but it still unknown what exactly will be modified. It is expected that new 2016 Buick Regal will have more aggressive look and to be more muscular. Probably, headlights and taillights are going to get a new shape. It is also possible front fascia will come with new lines and angles but still we need to wait for photos. Cabin will be equipped with many top notch features which are considered to be standard now. Some of them are dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, heated seats, etc. There is no much official info about the design out there. Buick tries to keep these things off record as long as possible.
Buick Regal 2015 Release date and Price
Buick has lots of skeletons in its closet and release date is one of them. According to the rumors that can be found on the Web, 2016 Buick Regal will hit the market by the end of this year, but it is not exactly when this might happen. Maybe it can seem a bit expensive with price of $40,000 but have in mind that with this price it won’t differ too much from the competence.
