If the words “Buick sedan” conjure up an image up a hulking four-door with bench seating and outdated styling, you clearly haven’t been paying attention to what Buick has been doing.

The release of the all-new 2018 Buick Regal GS will forever change your notion of what a Buick is. With an updated and strikingly elegant exterior, luxurious and sporty interior, and plenty of raw power under the hood, the 2018 Buick Regal GS is a game-changer in the sedan category.

At the heart of the 2018 Buick Regal GS is an impressive 3.6-liter, naturally aspirated V6 engine generating 310 hp and 282 lb-ft of torque. This is the same engine you’ll find under the hood of the unapologetically muscular Chevrolet Camaro. Pair this with a nine-speed transmission and an active twin-clutch AWD system, and the idea behind the all-new Regal GS is clear: to make a luxury sedan that is an absolute thrill to drive.

Inside and out, the 2018 Buick Regal GS exudes luxury and refinement. A restyled front end make for a sleeker, more angular and sporty look than previous models while premium appointments such as heated, ventilated, and bolstered sport seats offer an exhilarating driving experience.

With a price tag considerably lower than luxury offerings from competing automakers, the 2018 Buick Regal GS is a standout vehicle. Stop by Rivard Buick GMC to learn more or take a test drive of any of our models.
