DETROIT – Buick’s U.S. retail sales were up 17 percent in November, marking the brand’s 19th consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth and its best November since 2006. Total sales were up 13 percent year-over-year.
Achieving its best retail month of this year, sales of the Regal sport sedan increased 105 percent and total sales were up 83 percent year-over-year. The Regal and Regal GS, recently revamped for 2014, now offer an advanced all-wheel-drive system with electronic limited-slip differential to help make the most of traction in all driving conditions.
“Between the better grip, the adaptive dampers and the competition-mode stability control, the [Regal] GS AWD actually felt better planted and more surefooted around this autocross than the [Audi] A4...,” wrote Motor Trend, following a recent Regal drive.
Twenty-one percent of 2014 Regal models ordered by dealers are equipped with AWD.
“We know some customers will only consider a vehicle with all-wheel drive,” said Brian Sweeney, vice president of Buick Sales and Service. “The advanced AWD system in the 2014 Buick Regal gives these customers another reason to visit Buick showrooms.”
In addition to now offering AWD, the Regal boasts a new 2.0L Turbo engine, its most powerful standard engine ever, with 259 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
The exterior and interior styling of the 2014 Regal has also been refreshed. It now includes standard next-generation IntelliLink connectivity, including eight-inch color touch display; leather-appointed seating surfaces with heated front seats; rear vision camera; and 18-inch alloy wheels.
