There have been some big changes to the Buick Regal sedan—which is no longer a sedan at all. You might not even recognize the new 2018 Buick Regal at first glance, so here are five things you should know about what’s new in this car.
There Are Two Models
The new 2018 Buick Regal comes as two different cars. The first is the Buick Regal Sportback, a five-door hatchback disguised as a sleek sedan. The second is the Buick Regal TourX, a capable and luxurious wagon.
They Come With Strong Engines
Both models of the new Buick Regal come with a standard 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. The Buick Regal Sportback also comes in a GS version which gets a 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The Cabins Are Quiet
With Buick’s Quiet Tuning technology, the cabins of the 2018 Buick Regal TourX and Sportback are peaceful, even on highways.
They Have Great Standard Technology
Each 2018 Buick Regal TourX and Sportback comes with a standard 7-inch color touchscreen with the Buick Infotainment system and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Standard All-Wheel Drive on the Regal TourX
The 2018 Buick Regal TourX in particular is crafted for adventure, and comes with standard all-wheel drive so that it’s set to travel off road or on slippery pavement with confidence. All-wheel drive is also available on the Buick Regal Sportback.

Ever since it was first launched in 2007, the Buick Enclave has been a popular SUV, one that stands out due to its luxury and sophisticated design. Even after the first generation stuck around for longer than normal, people still chose the Buick Enclave over other full-size SUV options. However, now the second generation is finally here as the 2018 Buick Enclave. We didn’t think this SUV could get any better, but Buick has proven us wrong with a new powertrain, new design, and new standard features.
Even More Luxury
We didn’t think the Buick Enclave could get any more luxurious, either, but they proved us wrong there too when they added the new Buick Enclave Avenir trim to this model. This is the first vehicle in the new Buick Avenir lineup, a top-end trim that will offer the most in the way of luxurious design and generous, sophisticated features. In this case, the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir makes a big impression with a unique black grille, bold lines, chrome accents, 20-inch wheels, wood accents in the interior, and a long list of features.

Recently, The Detroit Free Press published information it received from Google concerning auto brands and search data. As it turns out, the most searched brand on Google was, surprisingly, Buick. In the midst of a brand makeover, Buick has piqued the interest of Americans across the country, most noticeably in the Midwest, where Buick reigned supreme in a whopping 10 U.S. states. Of those ten states, most of them expressed the most interest in the Buick Enclave.
Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, the Dakotas, and Ohio were all most interested in the new Buick Enclave. Other nameplates that made it on the most-searched list included the Buick Encore in Wisconsin and the elegant Cascada soft-top convertible in Indiana. Meanwhile, as Buick surged ahead in Google searches, Honda – one of the top-selling brands in the U.S. with 791,000 units sold last year – didn’t reach the #1 spot in any U.S. state at all. And the Ford F-150, the best-selling vehicle in the ‘States for decades, didn’t pop up at all, either.
Google searches reflect what’s causing a buzz in the social sphere, and with Buick dropping a new ad campaign to more accurately show off its change in direction, people are definitely going to be curious. Marketing decisions like that are what made Buick the most searched brand on Google. Check Buick vehicles out today at Ewing Buick GMC to see what all of the buzz is about.

The new 2016 Buick Envision is on the horizon, set to hit the market sometime this summer. This premium model comes with a powerful engine, the latest technologies, and luxury equipment. There’s nothing quite like the new Envision. According to Edmunds, the new Buick Envision design will have incredible features, including a hands-free liftgate, fog lamps, and projector-beam halogen headlights. Upper-level trims come with exclusive features like HID headlights, a heads-up display, and more. The Envision is ideal for owners looking for something between the Encore and the Enclave. Under the hood of the upcoming Envision is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that gets up to 252 horsepower. This is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, a great feature for harsh terrain and weather. Believe it or not, the 2016 Buick Envision is coming this summer, while the 2017 model year will appear in the fall. This provides you with tons of options and features, making it easy to find the Envision that fits your needs.
Forever paving the way with new, innovative models, new reports say that Buick will continue to evolve their brand by putting out four, stunning new models in the near future, likely aimed at a younger audience of drivers.
Right now, Buick is launching their new Cascada midsize convertible, all the while working on the advertising message for the Envision midsize crossover, which you can expect to see at dealerships this summer.
Plus, a redesigned full-size LaCrosse sedan will be revealed around that time, followed up by the next Buick Encore in the fall. With each of these, drivers will find an entirely new, stylish tone from the brand.
Recently reported Buick sales indicate that the brand’s new plans are going well so far this year, with a 20 percent increase over the first two months of 2016 alone. We think it’s safe to say that this trend will continue.
