The 2020 Buick Regal Sportback five-door is the third model year for the latest sixth generation of the Regal nameplate. As one of the last remaining contemporary sedans to wear a Buick badge, General Motors is keen to keep it feeling as fresh as possible. As such, the Regal Sportback is set to receive a new ST Appearance Package that will add a number of sport-flavored exterior aesthetics upgrades.
The new ST Appearance Package will only be offered on the mid-range Essence trim level, which slots in between the Preferred and Avenir trim levels of the 2020 Buick Regal Sportback. Note that the new ST package will not be offered with the Regal TourX wagon model. Additionally, the package has yet to debut, which means pictures are currently unavailable. However, the package is expected to be offered very soon.
The “ST” name stands for “Sport Touring,” which makes sense given the sporty flavoring it adds to the Regal. The ST Appearance Package helps the latest Buick Regal Sportback stand out from the crowd thanks to the following content:
- Custom black grille
- Rear sport spoiler
- ST badging
- Unique 18-inch aluminum wheels with Gloss Black finish
This isn’t the first time Buick has offered an ST Appearance Package with the Regal. The previous-generation Regal also came with Sport Touring extras, as introduced with the 2016 model lineup. In addition to upgrading the Buick Regal, the previous ST Appearance Package was also offered with the Buick Encore, Buick Verano, and Buick LaCrosse.
Similarly to the new ST Appearance Package, the previous package featured 18-inch wheels with machined faces and black pockets, plus a larger lip spoiler in back.
For reference, the latest 2020 Buick Regal Sportback Essence is equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder LTG engine, which is tuned to produce 250 horsepower. Higher in the range, the Regal GS is equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine, which produces 310 horsepower.
