2012 Buick Regal Review

Designed for the environment it moves in the 2012 Regal harnesses the power of wind. Inside regal CXL’s 2.4 liter 182-horsepower ecotec engine you’ll find a technological marvel. To amplify Regal’s sport-injected performance even further we created regal CXL turbo1 and gave it a 2.0l ECOTEC DOHC Variable Valve timing intercooled turbocharged engine with direct cylinder fuel injection. With 220 horsepower and 258 pound feet of torque its dual-scroll turbo technology generates nearly instantaneous acceleration. Regal CXL turbo’s available class-exclusive Interactive drive control system offers two selectable modes that adjust suspension steering throttle transmission and stability systems in real time to personalize your driving experience. Regal has plenty of room for five with leather-appointed french-seam stitched seats throughout and heated ones up front. You’re always in the on position because controls gauges and optional navigation system with multi-function controller allow you to instantly command Regal’s performance. Regal packs a lot of entertainment power as well. with an available Harman Kardon 320-watt nine-speaker premium sound system The 2012 Buick regal its arrival is a Departure.
