Buick Regal GS Shows Its Aggressive Face In New Pictures

We’re getting a better look at the Buick Regal GS as a couple of new photos have surfaced online.

Posted by Autowp, the images show the Chinese-spec model will feature an aggressive front fascia with a revised grille and larger air intakes that are surrounded by metallic accents.

The car has also been equipped with sportier side skirts and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Continental tires. Drivers will also find continuously variable dampers and an upgraded braking system with red calipers.

The interior largely carries over but the Regal GS has a number of sporty touches including a flat-bottom steering wheel and alloy pedals. Other highlights include red contrast stitching and piano black trim on the center console.

Buick has been tight-lipped about the car but the automaker has already revealed it will have a “high-feature V6 engine” that produces an estimated 310 hp (231 kW). Documents posted by the California Air Resources Board confirmed the engine will be a 3.6-liter V6 that is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system.

There’s no word on when the Regal GS will be introduced but it could happen relatively soon.

    does it come with cream seats?

    • MJ Coffey

      I see what you did there.

      +1 cream interior for me, please.

  • Six_Tymes

    looks pretty good

    • SteersUright

      But not great. lol. “Pretty good” sure doesn’t ring the same as, “awesome”, “amazing”, “drop-dead beautiful”. Admittedly, its a pretty good effort, even the inside looks decent. However, overall the proportions are too “commuter-car-ish” rather than truly lovely.

    Pretty good looking..

    The GS trim would look a little awkward on the TourX, but I wouldn’t complain if they offered it in an Avenir trim with the V6.

    Did they leave the suspension chocks in place for this photo shoot? Or does it have a hydraulic lift kit in the front for speedhumps??!!
    For a sports model, there is a hell of a lot of space between the tyres and wheel arches!

      I think for the rendering, they forgot to lower it some. Hopefully, that’s just the case.

  • john1168

    When they say continuously variable suspension, is that the magnetic suspension?

    • SgtBeavis

      I’m not sure but I’d say that is probably the case.

    Let’s turbo charge that beast and resurrect the GNX nameplate.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      I agreed…..

  • TheBelltower

    Well damn. This looks good

  • carlbolt

    A 310 hp “high feature” 3.6l V6 engine, lol.

    • TheBelltower

      I thought that sounded weird too. They wanted to say “high output” or “high horsepower.” But a V6 that puts down only 310hp is kind of just middle of the road these days.

    • Enter Ranting

      One hp more than the old Mustang V6, which has been discontinued.

  • I test drove the original with a 6 speed manual. Talk about a let down… the braking and handling where fantastic, but the engine performance and the shifting where awful. The engine hesitated, the pedals were poorly spaced for heel/toe, and the stick had a reverse trigger right in the front which you grabbed every time you wanted to shift. I’m fairly certain it was all an afterthought.

    I guess they solved those issues with a V6 and no manual. :-/

      The car was heavy as well. I test drove one and it did not want to get up and go nor was it agile. After riding in it for about an hour, my butt when numb but the seats in other markets were a lot better from what I’ve heard. Just not in the U.S., apparently.

    I like the agressive look of this new Regal. Hopefully the stance for it isn’t the same as the base models.

  • Chad Gordon

    Is it just me or do the wheels look too small?

  • aaronbbrown

    I like it, and I haven’t like the Buick since… ever.
