2018 Buick Regal: Bigger Threat To Volvo V60?
The 2018 Buick Regal wagon is going to rival the Volvo V60 wagon. We say this as the Regal sedan rivals the Volvo S60, so it makes sense that the wagon version of Regal would go up against the wagon from Volvo.
SUVs are the in-thing at the moment and they have pushed out cars. Due to this Buick is going to kill off the Regal sedan and in its place will be the five door sedan styled SUV or wagon. This shouldn’t come as any big surprise as sales of midsized sedans have been dropped off for two years in a row and crossovers now make up for two thirds of sales of Buick vehicles during 2016.
At the moment Buick are keeping things very tight to their chest about the design of the vehicle but we are not expecting to see anything special come our way. Bear in mind that GM focuses on badge-engineering these days and the Buick Regal is going to have the same focus.
There has been a rumour going around that the Buick Regal will be built at the Opel Ruesselsheim factory over in Germany before being imported over to the US. If the Buick is to be a five door vehicle it is going to be the brands first wagon since they launched the Buick Roadmaster during the 1990s.
