Since the 2018 Buick Regal debuted last month, starting its sixth generation, rumors have been floating around about a potential Regal GS, or Gran Sport.
The GS name has been around for decades to indicate Buick’s performance vehicles, and the Buick Regal GS could include a 3.6-liter V6 engine, like the one in the LaCrosse that produces 310 hp, a step up from the Regal’s current turbocharged 4-cylinder. There are also rumors that the Regal GS could come with the Camaro’s 335-horsepower V6.
The news about the Regal GS first came out in April, when The Truth About Cars saw a blurb advertising the Regal GS with the V6 engine on the Buick Canada website. It has since been taken down, but it follows previous statements from TTAC reporting that a Regal with a V6 was on its way all the way back in 2016.
The Regal GS would also probably be paired with Buick’s new twin-clutch all-wheel drive system, which offers unique torque and vectoring capabilities that will further boost the performance and make for an even more exciting drive. No details have yet been released for the possible Regal GS, but you can find out about the 2018 Regal today at Warsaw Buick GMC!
