The sixth generation of the Regal was introduced in 2017 as a 2018 model-year, and it was based on the same platform as the European Opel/Vauxhall Insignia.
The Regal GS was a new addition to the American brand. Its fresh design was on par with other premium automakers from the same era and targeted families that didn't want to drive the commonly used Camry, Avalon, or Accord. Moreover, Buick offered the Regal with an all-wheel drive system, which was not available for its main competitors. Only the European premium automaker had something like this in their offer.
When it developed the Regal, General Motors invested more than pennies into the car's look. The car's angular headlights flanked a broad black grille where the Buick badge took center stage. In addition, the front bumper sported large side scoops that flanked a slim lower air intake. From its profile, the Regal revealed its European connection due to its sculptured door panels. At the back, the sloped rear windscreen was integrated into the tailgate. Finally, the rear fascia featured angular, slim taillights.
Inside, the automaker offered a pair of high-bolstered seats fitted as standard, with an option for sports seats. Like most other premium vehicles from the same segment, the GS sported an LCD placed in front of the driver and a second touch-screen panel atop the center stack. But Buick didn't forget about the trunk either. Thus, that could have been expanded from 490 liters (17.3 cu-ft) to 1,450 liters (51.2 cu-ft) by folding the rear bench seatback.
Under the hood, Buick offered the Regal with a choice of two gasoline units; a 2.0-liter turbocharged-four or a 3.6-liter V6 paired with a nine-speed gearbox that sent the power in all corners.
