2014 Buick Regal Bumps Up the Power

By | November 15, 2013
Power...in a Buick? The 2014 Buick Regal, which just arrived in dealerships, features more power than last year's model thanks to changes under the hood. A new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder pumps out 259 horsepower, up from the 220 offered in the 2013 model. This standard engine is even more powerful than last year's sporty Turbo model, providing 18 percent more horsepower and 13 percent more torque. On top of this, it is still able to achieve 21/30 mpg. The improvements can be attributed to an improved twin-scroll turbocharger and other advancements. A new cylinder head design and stiffer structural front engine and camshaft covers are other changes on the new model. Additionally, dual continuously variable cam phasing helps better maximize low speed torque and enhance fuel economy. The 2.0-liter turbo was rated as a Ward's 10 Best Engine.
The Regal starts at just over $30,000, which now shares a price point with entry level Mercedes-Benz or BMW cars. Standard features include IntelliLink connectivity with 8-inch color display, heated front seats, rearview camera, and leather materials. Source: GM
