2011 Buick Regal: turn confirms
Following a meeting between the leaders of General Motors, and owners of concessions Buick / GMC brands, it was decided to offer a new entry-level sedan has the Buick brand. The latter will be called Regal and will be available in autumn 2010 as a model 2011.
A good decision
The return of the name Regal Buick in the range of products will allow this division to reconnect with a very important part of its history, which will henceforth serve as a springboard to the development of future models.
The Buick Regal is part of the modern history of the brand. The first name first appeared in 1973 and the last came out of the assembly plant on 1 June 2004.
But since 2002 there is a Chinese version of the Buick Regal, conceived, developed and assembled the earth, around the main elements of the Opel Insignia sedan. Like the Buick LaCrosse, it will be developed from the Epsilon II platform for front wheel drive vehicles.
An all-new Buick Regal
Buick Regal that we will be available in North American soil, borrows the style of its Chinese version, but stops or almost any resemblance to the latter.
Of its size, it will become for a few months the new gateway to the Buick brand. According to First Data, which were revealed by GM, it will be shorter than seven inches, compared to the dimensions of the model LaCrosse.
She will inherit the engines of big sister. Eventually, the latter will have a four-cylinder 2.4-liter that develops 180 horsepower, which will also be under the hood of the Buick Regal. V6 3.0-liter 255 horsepower ISSUING will complement the whole. They will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission has. It is unlikely that the 3.6-liter V6 that develops 280 horsepower, is found under the hood of the newcomer.
Assembly in Ontario?
The technical data that will benefit the future Buick Regal 2011 are so close to those of the Lacrosse sedan, we can easily imagine seeing these two cars be assembled side by side in the Oshawa plant in Ontario, or we already manufactures the model LaCrosse.
