2013 NY Auto Show: 2014 Buick LaCrosse and Regal

The Buick Regal and LaCrosse have been refreshed for the 2014 model year. Both models will be on display at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. The Regal and LaCrosse receive styling changes, and other adjustments for 2014.

The 2014 Regal and LaCrosse get a revised chrome grille and standard LED daytime running lights. New
safety and alert systems include: forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and a following-distance indicator.

The Regal will be available with two engine choices. The base engine is a 2.4L direct injection 4-cylinder engine with eAssist. The 2.4L engine is good for 182 horespower and 172 lb-ft of torque. The Regal Turbo and Regal GS will use a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, that now produces 250 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Compared to last year's models, the Turbo gains 39 hp and 35 lb-ft of torque, while the GS loses 11 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard and a 6-speed manual is optional on turbocharged Regals. Models with 2.0L engine and 6-speed automatic transmission is now offered with the Haldex AWD system.

The LaCrosse's power will carry over from last year's model. Buyers will be able to choose from the 3.6L V6 or the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with eAssist. All LaCrosse models get improved aerodynamics with the use of active grille shutters.
