The 2014 Buick Regal will begin its reign with a relatively significant upgrade for the new model year, showcasing a new standard turbo engine, freshened interior and exterior design, and more available technologies, all while seeing a $675 price bump. As a result, the Regal will open at $29,690—before a $925 destination charge—and reach dealerships with refined front and rear design cues that can be crowned with Buick’s new LED daytime running lights, as well as a cabin that boasts a restyled instrument panel and center stack.
The latter helps host the next-generation IntelliLink technology that also debuts in the 2014 Buick Regal. This feature provides an enhanced connectivity and media experience, ably assisted by an eight-inch touchscreen that recognizes gestural commands, and now can be paired with a nine-speaker Bose audio setup with separate tweeters and subwoofer.
GM’s award-winning suite of camera-based safety measures also will make their first appearance on the 2014 Buick Regal. In the mix here:
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Lane Change Alert
- Side Blind Zone Alert
- Lane Departure Warning
- Forward Collision Alert
- Collision Mitigation Braking
Naturally, the 2014 Buick Regal retains key technologies from the 2013 model, like a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, voice-controlled navigation, and eAssist powertrain tech, but that final feature has been repositioned by the Buick brand as part of an overall shuffling of the lineup—but without changing its goal.
“Regal represents a more sporty expression of Buick today,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “The 2014 model’s advanced technology, powertrain improvements and dynamic handling characteristics deliver the attributes consumers seek in today’s premium sport sedans.”
