The sixth-gen Buick Regal is already breaking all the rules (no sedan, only a hatch or wagon, all imported from Germany). Now it will be available with a V6.
The company’s B Magazine (via GM Authority) has revealed the 2018 Regal GS will have a 310hp (231kW) “high feature” V6, probably the same 3.6-liter naturally aspirated engine due for the new Holden Commodore.
The GS will have more aggressive styling, torque vectoring AWD, and variable dampening control system.
Lesser Regal models will have a 250hp (186kW) 2-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine.
V6 engines were once common among midsize and full size sedans, but they’re being phased out in favor of 4-cylinder turbo engines (the latest Honda Accord dumps the 3.5-liter V6 for a 2-liter I4 turbo, the Hyundai Sonata is 4-cylinder only, etc.).
