The 2015 Buick Regal has more than enough performance to justify a turbocharged engine.

2015 Buick Regal

The 2015 Buick Regal fits very well into the framework of Buick’s quiet, yet slowly getting louder message of showing the public that its vehicles are just as suitable for younger buyers. Our Cavender Auto Group colleagues over at the Cavender Buick GMC North store published a blog in July about a new and younger generation of Buick buyers. The basic premise is fairly simple, younger buyers are more comfortable with the addition of more technology options as well as upgraded performance. This is the basis for what the 2015 Buick Regal has to offer. Cavender Buick GMC West should be taking delivery of the new 2015 Regal in the very near future.
