2018 Buick Regal TourX

Presented here is an unedited press release received by Consumer Guide today.

DETROIT — Coming off a historic year with record sales, four new vehicle launches and awards validating Buick’s quality and customer experience, the brand’s introduction of the all-new Regal TourX brings the latest product to broaden the brand’s lineup in the U.S. Like the successful Encore and Cascada, TourX proves Buick continues to make bold moves outside traditional vehicle segments.

2016 Buick Regal GS

Buick’s Regal slips into the price gap between “regular” and premium midsize cars. Although the base model starts at about $28,000, the tested top-line AWD GS came to just under $42,000 loaded with options. The GS is distinguished from the front by its unique vertical vents below the headlights.

If any vehicle in Buick showrooms seems out of place, it’s the midsize Regal. Based on the German-market Opel Insignia, its sport-sedan flavor puts it at odds with the decidedly non-sporty Buick image.

But that’s exactly its mission: to appeal to a group of buyers that wouldn’t normally be thinking “Buick.” To that end, it offers a turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive, a combination not found in any other Buick car.

2014 Buick LaCrosse

Rather than hold individual launches for each of its divisions at the 2013 New York Auto Show, General Motors rolled them together into a 1-2 combo from Buick followed by an uppercut from Cadillac.

The oldest product in Buick’s lineup is the LaCrosse, which bowed in its current form for the 2010 model year. For 2014, GM is giving the car a substantial freshening. A new front fascia brings LaCrosse’s appearance up to date with more recent Buicks, including the compact Verano sedan and midsize Enclave SUV. Powertrains are unchanged and include GM’s eAssist gas/electric 4-cylinder and conventional 3.6-liter V6 engines, each mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Newly available safety features include lane-departure warning, forward-collision alert, and pre-collision braking. Most models will also include the latest generation of Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system. The 2014 Buick LaCrosse goes on sale this summer.

Similarly updated for 2014 is the smaller Buick Regal. Like its bigger brother, Regal gets Verano/Enclave-inspired styling cues. The eAssist 4-cylinder engine remains standard. Sporty versions, including the top-line Regal GS, get a new 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 259 horsepower. From 2014 onward, the GS will be the only Regal model to offer a manual transmission. All others will come only with a 6-speed automatic. For the first time, Regal will be available with the choice of front- or all-wheel drive.

A one-off custom 1982 Buick Regal by legendary builder Lil’ John Buttera

Is it too soon to indulge in some 1980s automotive nostalgia? I hope not, because I’ve been reminiscing quite a bit lately about the days of leg warmers, E.T., and Huey Lewis and the News. Don’t ask me why. Most car enthusiasts lump the early 1980s in with the 1970s as the automotive dark ages, but there were bright spots. I was combing through Consumer Guide’s amazing photo library recently when I stumbled across two snapshots in our 1983 Buick files. They’re mediocre photos, probably taken as an afterthought at a full-line GM press event for its soon-to-be-released 1983 models. But the car in them is anything but mediocre—it’s a one-off custom built by legendary drag-car and hot-rod builder “Lil’” John Buttera.

Last AWD Sedans

2019 Nissan Altima

There’s a certain cachet to sedans with all-wheel drive. Though largely shunned by folks in states in which snow is not a real threat to commuting ease, AWD vehicles in general have caught on with the buying public, accounting for as much as 80 percent of the sales of certain crossover-SUV models in cities such as Chicago and New York.

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS

Camaro ZL1by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The original Chevrolet Impala Super Sport was a trendsetter, and from 1961 through 1969 the nameplate adorned some fast-and-fantastic Chevy hardtops and convertibles. But as classic muscle peaked, interest in full-size performance gave way to luxury.
