Regal Pricing Announced!

In a followup to yesterday’s announcement of the Buick Regal, today Buick released pricing for the vehicle. Initially, the Regal will only be offered in the Premium CXL model with other trim models to be offered in the 2012 model year.

The Premium CXL model start at $29,495 including a $750 destination charge and includes the following:

  • Standard 2.4L Ecotec direct injected engine rated at an estimated 182 horsepower (136 kW)
  • Available 2.0L Ecotec turbocharged and direct injected engine rated at an estimated 220 horsepower (164 kW) – available late-summer 2010
  • Both engines have six-speed automatic transmission standard with Driver Shift Control (DSC)
  • Estimated 30 mpg on the highway with the 2.4L and 29 mpg highway with the 2.0L turbo engine
  • MacPherson strut front suspension and four-link independent rear suspension
  • Class-exclusive Interactive Drive Control System is available with the 2.0L turbo.

Some more standard and optional features include:

  • Four-wheel disc brakes with four-channel anti-lock braking system, brake assist and electronic parking brake
  • Standard StabiliTrak stability control system and full-function traction control
  • Standard dual-stage frontal air bags, side-curtain air bags and pedal-release system; and available rear-seat thorax air bags
  • Available navigation system, Harman Kardon sound system, and internal flash drive (1GB)
  • Standard 18-inch aluminum wheels (19-inch aluminum wheels come with available Interactive Drive Control on the 2.0L turbo)
  • Standard 12-way power, leather and heated driver seat; leather and heated passenger front seat; Bluetooth for phone capability; i-Pod auxiliary jack and USB port; XM Satellite Radio and OnStar

The regal will go on sale in the U.S. around the beginning of the second quarter (around March).

It looks like a good deal considering how much is put into the car. Buick’s vision of rebuilding their image is coming along nicely with sharp looks and great modern features in their recent “new old model car” remakes.

Before I go, I’ll leave you with this pricing guide released from Buick that shows the prices of the rest of the models as well as a comparison to the LaCrosse.
