Buick revealed the latest addition to its Avenir sub-brand, the 2019 Regal Avenir, Tuesday evening, but don’t expect the badge to reach other Regal variants.
Buick told GM Authority it has no plans to offer a Regal TourX Avenir or Regal GS Avenir. The latter is understandable; the GS sits as its own variant with an exclusive 3.6-liter LGX V6 engine and sporting intentions. The lack of a TourX Avenir variant is a bit perplexing.
Instead, the luxurious goodies will be kept to the Regal Sportback sedan. The Avenir model will boast exterior enhancements such as a 3D mesh grille, 19-inch wheels, and unique badging, while the cockpit receives a Whisper Beige motif with Ebony accents. Diamond quilted leather seats and embroidered Avenir headrests are also part of the package. The Regal Avenir is also the first Buick to gain the brand’s new cloud-based infotainment system.
We don’t have pricing for the Avenir model just yet, but expect it to start a couple thousand dollars more than the current range-topping trim, but under the Regal GS.
