General Motors is in the throes of revamping one of its key brands: Buick. The car company has languished as the geriatric special in recent years, but things may be slowly turning around. Buick has a few newly redesigned models that are genuinely interesting, including the recently revealed 2018 Buick Regal. The new Regal will come in Sportback (pictured) and TourX wagon versions, and according to The Truth About Cars, will likely come in a special GS trim that will put a 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood and come with AWD. Rejoice! Buick isn’t boring anymore.
Buick has not yet officially confirmed the Regal GS. The Truth About Cars reported that it’s in the works due to the fact that a GS model was referenced on Buick Canada’s website with a 3.6-liter V6 and AWD. Buick promptly took down the information about the Regal GS, but not before The Truth About Cars could grab a screenshot of the page where it appeared. Also, the information showed up in the page description in Google's search results for a while.
If Buick actually builds this model, it likely won’t be right away. The company has confirmed a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four-cylinder engine for the Regal. There’s time for the company to announce the upgraded mill, but as of yet, it looks like we’re stuck with the turbo four. Buick plans to start selling the Regal near the end of 2017. Maybe by then, there will be more information.
