The 2018 Buick Regal Wagon has been officially confirmed by its makers. This confirmation is welcoming news for the fans. No one really expected Regal to have a Wagon trim. This surprising revelation was possible after a lot of groundwork. What new can the fans expect? Well, the room for speculation has no limit. But there should always be a relevant demand about it.
New Regal Wagon can be expected to be more polished with new seating arrangements and more room for cargo. The new model will carry a turbocharged engine which will have high fuel efficiency values. Safety features will promise to impress, and new technologies in the interior section would have futuristic touch.
2018 Buick Regal Wagon – Powertrain Details
The 2018 Buick Regal Wagon is going to be offered in two engine variants. Having an additional option is always an excellent choice. The turbocharged unit combined with eight-speed automatic transmission system is always efficient. Four-cylinder turbodiesel engine is great fun to have around. 1.6 liter CDTi engine replaces the 2.0-liter variant. Following the trend of having hybrid powertrains, it should be not surprising if one such configuration is included.
An all-wheel drive configuration will hold the key for these engines. Although the officials have not confirmed this news, all the rumors are pointing towards this scenario. Fuel economy will be higher than those in Buick Regal versions of the past. Fuel consumptions per miles have been checked. The exact rates are yet to be known but can be expected to be revealed very soon.
2018 Buick Regal Wagon – Technological Upgrades and Features
The 2018 Buick Regal Wagon makers are yet to confirm any news on the safety features that they have planned to include. Below is the wish list from the fans who expect to see these changes being made in the new model:
- Use of Adaptive cruise controls.
- 360-degree parking assist
- Lane changing assist
- Rear view camera
- Auto brakes with effective sensors
- Airbags with shock sensors
- Fog lights to continue driving safely under low light conditions

New Buick Regal Wagon 2018 is likely to have a more muscular appearance than its predecessors. The new model is going to wear Tour X nameplate. This car would have a more aggressive chrome design with sportier headlights. Because this model is a station wagon, there should be more room for the passengers.
Seats might have heating features to keep the passengers warm and cozy during adverse climatic conditions. Climate controls will be present along with a revamped infotainment system with a wider touchscreen display. More apps will be present along with a new music system. 4G LTE connections and Wi-Fi hotspots might be included in this new model.
2018 Buick Regal Wagon – Price and Release Date
Upcoming 2018 Buick Regal Wagon is scheduled to be presented in Paris Auto Show later this year. The most likely scenario for its release is expected to happen at the beginning of 2017. Since the makers have not confirmed the release date, it should be unfair to speculate on the price range as well.
The new model is expected to be priced $5,000-$10,000 higher than its predecessors. With the addition of new technologies, it would be fair to say that the new rates would be entirely appropriate.
