Accompanying the changes to the 2013 Buick Regal is a price increase of exactly $1,960. Whereas the 2012 Regal had a base MSRP of $27,055, the 2013 model starts at $29,015 thanks to the addition of the eAssist powertrain (LUK) as standard equipment in place of the standalone 2.4 liter (LEA) mill.
Unlike the 2013 LaCrosse, Buick didn’t eliminate any trim levels for the 2013 Regal and elected to keep the Base, Premium I, Premium II, Turbo Premium I, Turbo Premium II, and GS trims. But what we wonder, though, is whether the new 2.5 liter Ecotec engine (LCV) will make its way into the Regal sometime in 2013. For now, we can only hope.
