2024 Buick Regal Redesign, Interior, Engine – We live in an era of inexpensive horsepower and sound design, which means that every Tom, Dick, and Harry is aiming to produce sports vehicles that are more responsive, and accelerate quicker and look better except for Buick. Buick’s Regal sedan series is about as far from a Mercedes-AMG E53 or Lexus GS F as you can get. Still, as the Regal nears the end of its existence, Buick has decided to make one more attempt to make this ugly, but useful Sportback sedan behaves like a sports vehicle.
The normally aspirated V6 engine is powerful but lacks personality under the hood; the same can be said of the transmission. The GS is not far behind in terms of dynamic performance but suffers from understeer under heavy acceleration. The Regal GS’s lone redeeming grace is its Sportback body type, which features a hatchback-like liftgate and adds trunk and luggage space.
2024 Buick Regal Redesign
2024 Buick Regal has declared that the Regal line of vehicles will be phased out after 2024 due to dwindling sedan sales and the brand’s success in the SUV category. Due to the range’s imminent death, the 2024 Regal GS retains its original styling, resulting in a Regal that seems more European than American, which can be both exhilarating and dull, depending on who you ask.
The GS’s elegant form conceals a hatchback-style liftgate and ends in a rear-end that looks boldly like a mix between a BMW M2 and a Lexus IS 350, due to a rear sport-style spoiler. Daytime running lights are standard on the 2024 Buick Regal GS exterior, as are halogen headlights with flash-to-pass functionality, automatic on/off, and automatic delay. The taillights are all LED.
The inside of the 2024 Buick Regal GS continues the exterior’s euro-centric styling: it has a sleek, flowing dashboard design with an easy-to-read and uses button layout for both the driver and front passenger. The GS is the top-of-the-line Regal vehicle, outfitted as a special performance edition with all the bells and whistles. For front-seat passengers and the driver, this vehicle has leather seats with eight-way power adjustments and four-way lumbar adjustments.
The driver is accommodated with attractive alloy pedals, while the cruise control settings are found on the sporty leather-wrapped flat-bottomed steering wheel. Dual-zone climate control maintains a pleasant inside temperature while front and rear park assist, as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, simplify city driving. Entering and departing the GS is a breeze with keyless entry and remote start. Optional upgrades include a head-up display and a wireless charging station.
Buick maintained the 2024 Buick Regal iconic V6 engine, a 3.6-liter unit that produces a healthy 310 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 282 pound-feet of torque at 5,200 pm. On the highway, the car features a nine-speed automatic transmission and a mechanism that distributes the majority of power to the front wheels but may also transfer power to the rear wheels if necessary.
The V6 engine generates a deliciously linear rush of power that may fool you into feeling you’re not going rapidly enough, but it accelerates quickly, and the nine-speed automatic keeps the 3.6-liter engine well within its powerband. The three possible driving modes, Touring, Sport, and GS, all affect the transmission’s reaction times; thus, for high-performance driving, maintain it in GS mode. The Regal GS lacks low-end torque but makes up for it with plenty of top-end power.
2024 Buick Regal Release Date and Price
The 2024 Buick Regal model range is manufactured by Buick. The entire range is priced from $25,370 for the FWD 2.0T entry-level model to $39,070 for the GS. This equates to a premium of $13,700 over the Regal GS’s basic model, without tax, registration, and a $925 destination fee. Buick faces a hurdle in achieving the $40,000 mark since numerous other automakers provide comparable products at a lower price.
