Buick May Have Outed Regal GS V6 Output at 310 Horsepower
If you are a reader of B, the Buick ownership magazine—and if you aren’t, you really should get on that—then you may have noticed an interesting little tidbit that might potentially tip Buick’s hand with regards to output for its upcoming Regal GS.
A Closer Look at the Buick Regal Sportback: Everything you need to know about the 2018 model
The print version of B includes a section with the subheading “Regal GS Amps the Performance” that reads as follows:
What’s more, the popular Regal GS model returns, boasting an aggressive appearance and exclusive design cues.
The Regal GS employs a high-feature V6 engine that furnishes an estimated 310 horsepower. It also incorporates a unique textured grille, a Jet Black interior, and a plethora of performance-enhancing features, including a continuously variable damping control system and Interactive Drive Control, which allows you to select from three distinct driving modes [Sport, Touring, and GS].
Curiously enough, if you visit the online version of B, the above text is all absent, focusing only on the information regarding the Regal Sportback and its 2.0-liter turbo and GM-estimated 250 horsepower output. Take that for what you will.
As GM Authority notes, the mention of Interactive Drive Control suggests the integration of something akin to the Opel Insignia’s FlexRide chassis management system with torque vectoring all-wheel drive.
While the Buick Regal GS has not been formally announced or introduced, it seems a quite likely inevitability for the United States. In the meantime, think about all of that horsepower while leafing through your copy of B. I personally recommend the article “A Colorful Tail,” which doesn’t really have anything to do with Buick but is all about shelter animals making paw paintings and is therefore inherently great.
