According to GM’s official statement, the struggling car manufacturing conglomerate has finally decided to resurrect their Buick Regal model range. If industry speculations have anything to do with reality, the 2011 Regal will be based on the European Opel Insignia mid-size sedan.
In about 18 months GM will start selling a plug-in hybrid mid-size crossover SUV under their Buick entry-level luxury brand.
Together with the new Buick Enclave mid-size SUV, the new luxury sedan has a good chance to help the struggling brand in making its customer base both younger and more loyal.
The 2010 Buick LaCrosse, which is very important for the brand, will be built on the completely new Epsilon II platform suitable to create both front and all-wheel drive cars.
