2018 BUICK REGAL GS MAKES WORLD DEBUT

DETROIT — Where spirited driving meets attainable luxury and sleek, sporty design meets modern usefulness, you'll find the 2018 Buick Regal GS – a car for commutes that are anything but common. As the brand's most dramatic expression of design and dynamics, this all-new model balances these key characteristics to provide customers excellent driving performance every day and in every season.

The 2018 Regal GS advances the nameplate wîth 51 more horsepower than the model it replaces, more refined transmission and AWD technology, all-new, heated/cooled and massaging performance seats and the added functionality and style of a five-door sportback design. Starting at $39,990 wîth destination charges, the Regal GS offers luxury features at a price more attainable than competitors from Audi and BMW.

'This is a sport sedan designed for everyday driving, but one that makes every drive special,' said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC. 'The new Regal GS is in the sweet spot of the market: more refined and luxurious than the mainstream, more value for the price wîth style and premium features on par wîth higher-end competitors, and wîth standard features like AWD wîth active twin clutch and a rear sportback design that will surprise customers wîth its usefulness.'

Regal GS Highlights:
•New 3.6L V-6 wîth 310 horsepower and 282 lb-ft of torque featuring direct injection, cylinder deactivation and stop/start technology
•Standard nine-speed automatic transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) wîth active twin clutch for improved vehicle control, and five-link rear suspension
•GS-specific, AGR-certified, performance seats that are heated, cooled and massaging wîth adjustable seat and seat-back bolsters as well as thigh support
•Second-generation Continuous Damping Control (CDC) capable of 500 adjustments per second and Interactive Drive Control wîth GS and Sport modes
•Únique sport front and rear fascias, side skirts and rear spoiler
•Standard 19-inch wheels
•Performance brakes wîth Brembo front calipers
•Sport-tuned exhaust system
•Sport flat-bottom §teering wheel and metal pedals
•Available head-up display

Buick's most advanced new propulsion components come standard on the new Regal GS. With 310 horsepower, its refined 3.6-liter V-6 provides more power than an Acura TLX A-Spec or a Lexus IS350 F-Sport but offers seamless auto stop/start technology and can cruise on four cylinders. The V-6 engine is complemented by a sport-tuned dual exhaust system.

Regal GS' intelligent AWD system wîth an active twin clutch can precisely transfer torque between the rear wheels for more refined and efficient performance, and the GS receives one of the first applications of the nine-speed automatic transmission in the Buick lineup that's mated to AWD. This advanced new transmission will soon be offered across five different Buick models.


Every Regal GS also features Buick's Interactive Drive Control, allowing the driver to tailor the car's dynamics based on different drive experiences through a standard setting or Sport and GS modes selected via the center console. Interactive Drive Control utilizes Buick's second-generation Continuous Damping Control (CDC), which is able to adjust suspension damping up to 500 times per second.

Versus a standard 2018 Regal Sportback, the GS also has standard Brembo brakes for more confident stopping power.

'With the all-new 2018 Regal GS, we set out to make a driver-focused, engaging and entertaining sport sedan without sacrificing the smooth ride and refined character expected of any modern Buick,' said Martin Hayes, chief engineer for the Buick Regal GS. 'Our new V-6 and nine-speed transmission, intelligent AWD and CDC all work to deliver excellent driving performance.'

Outside, Buick's signature sculptural beauty presents the car's sporting nature in an understated way wîth aggressive front and rear fascias, standard 19-inch wheels, a rear decklid spoiler and GS badging front and rear. Full LED headlamps are an option.

Inside, the Regal features unique perforated GS-specific performance seats wîth integrated headrests and adjustable lumbar and thigh support bolsters. The seats are heated and ventilated and come standard wîth a massage function. The interior also features a standard heated flat-bottom sport §teering wheel and GS-specific pedals and sill plates.

The 2018 Regal GS offers a cohesive and connected infotainment experience wîth an 8-inch diagonal touchscreen and 8-inch diagonal reconfigurable instrument cluster as standard equipment. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility both come standard. A full-color head-up display is available wîth an optional Driver Confidence II package that also includes several safety features including Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist wîth Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control wîth Forward Automatic Braking.

The Regal GS is a highest performance expression of the 2018 Buick Regal GS Sportback. Other Regal Sportback models will offer a standard 2.0T engine and sleek new design at a starting price -- $25,915 – that's approximately $2,000 lower than the 2017 Regal

The first-ever Regal TourX, which combines car-like handling and SÚV capability, launches wîth limited availability of select higher trim levels later this year. TourX models wîth a starting price of $29,995 are expected to be available at dealers in February 2018.

Every Regal also comes equipped wîth a 3 month/3 gigabyte trial of OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot1 and access to an unlimited data plan for $20 per month2, as well as five years of the OnStar Basic Plan3 at no additional cost. Among other benefits like the myBuick app4, this connectivity plan features OnStar Smart Driver, an opt-in service designed to help Buick owners maximize their vehicle's overall performance and become better drivers.

All prices above exclude tax, title, license and dealer fees.
