The revamped 2018 Buick Regal Sportback combines the sleek profile of a sedan with the rear access functionality of a hatchback, making it a preferred choice for families and individuals alike. Building upon the style of the Regal Sportback is the all-new 2018 Regal GS, which utilizes a mighty V6 engine and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with active twin-clutch to deliver heart-stopping performance.
The beating heart of the 2018 Buick Regal GS is a 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 310 horsepower for maximum excitement. This burly engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission that allows for smooth and seamless shifting and prioritizes the feeling of exhilaration as much as the optimization of power and fuel efficiency.
Standard for the 2018 Buick Regal GS is Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with active twin-clutch, which maximizes traction to enhance cornering and acceleration abilities. StabiliTrak® stability control system further improves control on slick or uneven surfaces and increases effectiveness when making emergency lane changes or avoidance maneuvers.
Front Brembo® brakes with dual piston front calipers provide the Buick GS with superior stopping power and make it all the more well-rounded on the road or track. The lovely red calipers are just visible beneath the Regal GS’ exclusive 19-inch wheels, adding a level of aggressiveness and sophistication to the exterior alongside features such as a distinct Regal GS Sport grille finished in Piano Black and bold front air scoops with brushed satin accents.
For even more confidence when tackling the road ahead, the 2018 Buick Regal GS is also available with cutting-edge driver-assist safety technologies, including Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Assist, as well as standard Front and Rear Park Assist and Rear Vision Camera.
The experience of driving the 2018 Buick Regal GS would be incomplete without an appropriately comfortable and sporty interior. Fortunately Buick spared no attention to detail in making its Regal GS a full-fledged sports car experience, equipping it with exclusive front performance seats with massage, heating and ventilation functions. These seats are also offered with three Interactive Drive Control settings that allow you to adjust your position to accommodate your driving mood.
Clean lines and well-crafted details flow into the Regal GS’ 8-inch touch screen, which allows you to access your favorite apps via Buick Infotainment and determine your next moves via Navigation. The Regal GS is also offered with an 8-inch diagonal reconfigurable instrument cluster that allows you to switch between Touring and Sport modes and view the performance and efficiency information you find most pertinent.
The 2018 Buick Regal GS combines the comfort and style you expect from Buick with thrilling performance and power befitting a vehicle made for track day. This exceptional sedan is equal parts fun and function, perfect both for family getaways and exploring the open road.
