2019 Buick Regal: Preview, Pricing, Release Date, Photos

Model Preview

Last year, the Buick Regal went through a huge transformation that brought in a more coupe-like roofline, resulting in the “Sportback” name being slapped on this sedan. With this complete overhaul just a year old, we expect no big changes to the 2019 Regal.

For 2018, Buick completely redid the entire look of the Regal. With its swoopy silhouette, sharp character lines, and coupe-like rear glass all still fresh, we expect nothing new here. We expect the same to prove true inside, where it’ll retain its distinctly European cabin.

Expect standard equipment to largely remain the same. If this proves true, look for it to come with standard cloth upholstery, keyless ignition, rearview camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, 7-inch infotainment system, a seven-speaker audio system, and more.

We also expect no changes under the hood. If this proves true, it’ll come with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through a nine-speed automatic transmission in front-wheel-drive models and an eight-speed automatic on all-wheel-drive models.

The IIHS has yet to perform safety tests on the 2018 Regal, so we don't have any hard data to pass on. What we do know is that the all-important automatic emergency braking is available as a part of the optional Driver Confidence Package II. Given all of its crash tests and the headlight test all turn in “Good” scores then the Regal will get the Top Safety Pick+ status so many automakers shoot for.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect the 2019 Regal’s production to kick off in late July of 2018, and for it to start hitting showrooms shortly after that.

Given it’s a carryover, we don’t expect official pricing to vary much from the current model, which ranges from $25,915 to $39,995 (destination fees included).

Competition will include the Acura TLX, Lincoln MKZ, and the Audi A4.
