2017 Mazda CX-5 Tested at Depth: That Fun-to-Drive Crossover Looks and Feels Extra ExpensiveJuly 13, 2017

The White House.
It appeared rather clear few weeks back something was afoot when GM Canada’s Buick.ca site liberally shown the (****************). Buick Regal GS’s powertrain: a 3.6-liter V6 and all-wheel push. However, Buick dropped to comment, eliminating the department that said a offering.
Once more, however, Buick seems to have enabled the horses from the window. Buick’s onscreen magazine, B(*****), also revealed details before program, (****).GM Authority has heard. Instead of the 259-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder of present GSs that also frequently feels underwhelmed, B magazine states that the (****************). Regal GS, “applies a high-feature V6 engine which provides a estimated (********************* horsepower.”
The V6 liveth.
It is not a frequent strategy. We have seen V6s vanish from the lineups of many midsize cars — by the Chevrolet Malibu, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Mazda 6 to the forthcoming 2018 Honda Accord. Even the next-gen Accord sacrifices organic aspiration, equally in four different and six-cylinder versions, in the altar of 1.5-liter along with 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinders. Even though there’s very likely to be no absence of electricity, something is missing in the movement in a naturally-aspirated V6 — a thing which will not be dropped at the 2018 Toyota Camry, that retains its V6 alternative.
Truly, six-cylinders are not the standard at some top Regal competitions, either. In Audi, you will need to step to an S4 from the range. Volvo does not offer you a six-cylinder from the S60. A six-cylinder BMW 3 Series is a 48,895 affair) There is no V6 from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class household till you’ve grabbed the $50K/AMG threshold.
(s)Buick, later shifting into a completely four-cylinder lineup with all an semi-premium fifth-gen Regal, will permit a 3.6-liter V6 to reevaluate its Regal lineup. It isn’t surprising to view Buick embrace an odd engine plan using the sixth-gen Regal.
logically, the newest has embraced a special bodystyle plan, killing the sedan off in favour of a four-door liftback that the automaker will phone the Regal Sportback. Buick can be currently attracting the Tour X section into the USA in a cost that is decent. Throw into a V6 motor and you’ve got a quick automobile that is midsize from a conventional marque using wagon and hatchback versions.
As with the flow Buick.ca from April, Buick once more will not affirm what Buick has placed in printing. The electronic model of B magazine, however, is currently lacking the section relevant to the GS version’s functionality.
We don’t anticipate, yet to hear additional information about the 2018 Buick Regal GS’s V6 engine choice in the forthcoming days.
The 2017 Buick Regal GS includes a $37,465 foundation MSRP, approximately one-third greater than the fundamental Regal.
