Is it possible that Buick is on a roll here? Sure, we were impressed with the new LaCrosse, and concluded that Buick was heading in the right direction in seeking a younger demographic, as in an audience that is not a senior citizen. Buick is redefining itself, and we are excited about the new 2011 Regal. For such a modern looking car, I am a little surprised Buick kept the Regal name, which is more familiar as a lousy airport rental car than anything special.
But that’s a gamble Buick is prepared to take. The 2011 Regal CXL will feature a 2.4L Ecotec engine rated at 182hp, priced at $26,995USD. There will also be a CXL Turbo with a 2.0L Ecotec engine rated at an estimated 220hp priced at $29,495. Buick claims only a six-speed automatic, but there have been rumors that a manual tranny could make its way into the Regal.
