We know it’s coming, but it looks like it’s some time off judging by the latest spy shots. Photos show a group of 2018 Buick Regal GS sportbacks cruising down an undisclosed highway. Camouflage covers the entire car, but it’s easy-peasy to spot the two chrome wings flanking a Buick tri-shield badge at the front. The camo also seems to cover larger openings in the bumper and likely a more aggressive front fascia altogether.
At the rear, dual integrated exhaust is present, but we can’t make much of else out from the shots.
Despite the cars being cloaked in camouflage, we do have a few nuggets of information.
Previously, Buick Canada slipped and divulged the upcoming Regal GS would be powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine. The brief description did not mention turbo or supercharging, leading us to speculate the hotter Regal will use the LGX V6 engine, which powers various other GM products.
We also were granted leaked images of what looks to be the 2018 Regal GS in the flesh for China. The image shows a sportier front end, Brembo brakes, GS badging and more. The image was published ahead of the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, where the car was rumored to debut, but never did.
So, we’ll have to wait a while longer for some solid information on the Buick Regal GS.
