Buick Regal GS debuts with 310-hp, 9-speed and AWD

19 Juillet 2017

A sport-tuned exhaust is meant to make the Regal sound distinct from the larger Buick LaCrosse, which uses the same V-6. In fact, ask some enthusiasts and you'll hear about the GM 3800 series engines, IndyCar racing, and the mythical GS and GNX.

Days after the April reveal of the Regal Sportback and TourX models, Buick's website in Canada let slip that a Regal GS with a V-6 and all-wheel drive was coming.

In a reversal from the latest trends, Buick has upsized the engine in its second-generation Regal GS, now a five-door hatchback, to a 310-horsepower naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V-6, from the first generation's 2.0-liter turbo four. The Regal GS makes more power than both the Acura TLX A-Spec (290 horsepower) and the Lexus IS350 F-Sport (306 horsepower).

The GS is basically a sport-tuned version of the all-new Buick Regal.

The sole transmission is a 9-speed automatic, and drive is to all four wheels via General Motors' twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system. The Regal GS uses the five-door sportback bodystyle from the standard auto (though a GS version of the TourX would be awesome), swiped from GM's soon-to-be former German division, Opel. The lack of a manual gearbox is perhaps disappointing, but it's also unsurprising, given that Buick dropped the manual from the previous-gen Regal GS a few years ago. Selectable modes allow the driver to tailor the vehicle to fit the situation. On the outside the Regal GS features more aggressive front and rear fascias, 19-inch wheels and a rear decklid spoiler. They even come standard with heating, ventilation, and massaging functions. The driver faces a GS badged flat-bottom steering wheel and GS-specific pedals. A color head-up display is optional. Available safety features include front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warnings, forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.

Base price is $39,990 including destination, which is almost $5,000 more than the outgoing model. Answer is that we're cheating a bit, and posting this from an embargoed press release just as Buick unveils the Regal GS to us.
