CONFIRMED(?): Next-Generation Buick Regal Wagon Coming to U.S.

confirmed next generation buick regal wagon coming to u s

After news broke last week about the death of the Buick Verano, it seems the General’s tri-shield brand is looking to bolster its next-generation D-segment offering by bringing a Regal Wagon to North America.

According to a poster on the GMInsideNews forum, Buick showed the next-generation Regal to dealers, which will include a wagon, during a dealer meeting in Austin, Texas.

The next Regal, which will once again find its roots in the Opel Insignia, is expected to grow, but it may see a downsized, 1.5-liter turbo as its base engine. The larger 2.0-liter turbo will likely continue to provide motivation for the Regal GS. GM didn’t disclose powertrain details at the meeting.

The new Buick is expected to reach dealer lots in 2017 as a 2018 model.

    The next V60 needs to have a more square backend...like Volvo's should. It would male it far more versitile.

    Consumer Reports thinks highly of the Regal. I'm 5' 10" and rode in the back of one once, I had room (but not sure if car had sunroof or not). If GM offered a manual trans on the base car, I would have considered it. I think a wagon is a good idea. Those of us who still prize fuel economy and handling prowess in exchange for a reduction in roominess/versatility can appreciate the benefits of a wagon vs a CUV

    If I could this in a stick and with the 2.0L engine, then it would be high on my next car purchase list. But I'm probably in the minority.

    Put the colored tri-shield on it and put it in my driveway!
