Will there be the 2024 Buick Regal, be revived again after being discontinued in 2020? The Regal nameplate was previously known as a reliable sedan with all the good stuff. The upscale midsize and sporty sedan has the right combination of an advanced powertrain, packed power, and also amazing handle. Unfortunately, the company decided to discontinue the sedan back then in 2020, officially making the manufacturer an SUV automaker completely. But is it possible that Buick decides to bring back the Regal again?
About Buick Regal Sedan
The Regal was first introduced in 1972 with the original Century Regal name. At that time, the Regal was designed to fill in the Buick Century lineup, created as the first-ever personal luxury ride under the popular name of General Motors. The initial Regal was offering upscale features and also sporty suspension (with a driver-oriented type), making it one of the most popular and likable vehicles. The sales numbers were quite high (for that year), reaching more than 91,500.
After decades later, the Regal reached the fifth gen with the leading powertrain, modern design, and dynamic driving outcome. To attract new generations of buyers, Buick kept on reinventing the Regal to give it a refreshing outcome. But they had to stop at a point, especially after the nameplate was no longer profitable for the company – and the condition had lasted for some years.
Regal’s Final Years
Unfortunately, it seems that there won’t be any 2024 Buick Regal. At least, the company hasn’t decided to bring back the Regal soon enough. But if we took at the last body types, 2 types were being offered. The TourX Regal was designed as a wagon, while the Sportback was a hatchback. You could find 5 trim levels for the hatchback, including the performance-oriented GS. The wagon, on the other hand, had 3 trim levels. All of them were running on four-cylinder turbocharged units, unless for the GS running on a V6 unit. The Sportback’s GS and Essence trims as well as all TourX trims are coming with the all-wheel driving system as the optional pick.
The sedan was constructed as a two-row vehicle able to accommodate 5 people comfortably. The space was quite generous within the cabin, even for those who are over 6 feet tall. Not only the space was roomy and accommodative, but the cabin itself was also quiet because it utilized QuietTuning sound insulation technology. If there would be ever new Regal being produced, Buick needs to pay attention more to the materials. They would improve the quality of the sedan with better materials.
In terms of technologies and features, the car had a responsive display screen with touchscreen ability and simple (and also accessible) dials. Other standard features include Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity, and wireless hotspots. If a new Regal would be made, expect more improved features and also safe driving technologies in the making.
New Regal – Is It Possible?
Likely, the upcoming Regal wouldn’t make it to production. The majority of auto manufacturers are cutting off the sedans, turning (and focusing more on) the crossovers or SUVs, or pickup trucks. Even today, SUVs are dominating the market, eliminating other vehicle models because their sales numbers aren’t really promising. Buick may believe that they won’t be able to make any profitable outcome if they produce Regal now.
So, despite the promising outcome and the possibility of a new Regal would be super fantastic, it’s not very likely that Regal would be available soon enough. So, if you are waiting for the 2024 Buick Regal, don’t be because it may not be offered within at least several years ahead.
