The Buick Regal is an Opel trying to revamp the Buick image by competing with true sports sedans. It doesn’t quite hit the mark, but it does offer tons of standard features on the cheap. What do you need to know before you buy a Regal? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
Following the rumor that Buick may bring a wagon variant of the next-generation Regal to the U.S. and China earlier this year, a new trademark filing suggests the company may be serious with its intentions, and even have a cool new name for a sleek Sport Wagon.
This video was recorded in West Virginia, if you're wondering.
We're about to see a lot more Opel — kinda — in the U.S. and a lot less Opel in China. After years of unimpressive sales, GM is pulling Opel out of China. On the flip, GM will rebadge two more Opel products in the U.S. for Buicks — one of which is most likely the Adam we've been curious about.
Today, Buick posted a press release celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Buick Regal. The only trouble is, the Regal is 41 years old, since it was introduced on September 15, 1972 as a 1973 model.
The Opel/Vauxhall Insignia VXR SuperSport is a 325 horsepower wagon with a top speed of 170 mph. Would you buy that as a sporty Buick Regal if you could?
The refreshed 2014 Buick Regal made its debut in New York last night, and GM chose to show it off among several edgier, less-China-friendly older Buicks. One of those things does not look like the other things.
Follow the logic: Vauxhall builds an Insignia-based coupe, meaning GM can build a Buick Regal coupe, meaning they can give it 312 horsepower and AWD and call it the "GNX." Just call us the kings of wishful thinking.

For some strange reason, Buick wants to spend nine paragraphs letting you know the Regal Turbo is flex-fuel capable. There ya go. [GM]
It appears that GM's marketers recruited the actors from this ad from Synanon, if we go by the vacuous, zombified smiles and apparent belief that the '80 Regal was a sporty car.
The five-second rule says that's how long before something dropped starts picking up the nasties. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Buick does the quarter in 13 seconds, but even though it's kinda' nasty you can still pick it up.
Germany's Nürburgring Nordschliefe is 12.9 miles of thick, close forest; 73 corners; and 1000 feet of elevation change. Jackie Stewart called it the Green Hell. It's the world's most dangerous race track, and we drove it in a Buick Regal.
First GM brings the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia stateside as the Buick Regal, then virtually guarantees the Regal GS, then Bob Lutz hints at a wagon and now here are Insignia Wagons hanging out with Regals around Detroit. What should we think?Based on these kinds of facts, we wagon-heads have two conclusions to come…
They may be heroes at the drag strip or the dirt track, but the good ol' midsize 80s GM rear-driver is just too big and the small-block Chevrolet engine just too overheat-prone to hold together well in LeMons. Notable exceptions have been the Malibu that came in second at Altamont '08 and the Monte Carlo that finished…
Say hello to the Buick Regal GS Show Car, or "Show Car," as it's a look at the 255HP, high-pressure turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder, all-wheel-drive, six-speed manual Buick Regal GS absolutely everyone is expecting GM to build.
The Buick Regal's back and with stellar styling and the promise of a manual transmission, it's trying to prove GM's serious about making the blue-haired brand appealing to whipper-snappers. We drove it yesterday and frankly, it's pretty good.
