2014 Buick Regal prototype - front three-quarter view, disguisedTwo more pieces of the nine-model product makeover from Buick and GMC are coming more into focus. Our spy shooters recently managed to capture the 2014 Buick LaCrosse (above) and 2014 Regal (at right) out testing, and it looks like General Motors has big things in store for both models. Based on these images, it looks like we might be seeing the redesigned LaCrosse before we see the refreshed Regal, and we wouldn't be too surprised for one of them making a debut at the Shanghai Motor Show at the end of April.

Although this LaCrosse is heavily disguised (in a stylish new camouflage pattern, we note), we've already seen the car completely uncovered in China. While the plaid covering does its job obscuring some of the car's details, we can still see that some of the elements match up with the spy shots from last month including the larger grille, the LED accents in the headlights and the reshaped exhaust outlets. Not obvious in the new spy shots is the fact that the LaCrosse's cabin is getting a major overhaul.

As for the facelifted Regal, we can definitely tell that a restyled front end will bring new headlights and fascia, but it looks like the big changes will be taking place at the rear of the sedan. What's interesting is that while we can tell the base Regal models are getting new headlights and fascias, it doesn't appear, from these pictures, that the same changes will be applying to the face of the sportier Regal GS. Judging by the amount of fabric piled on top of the instrument panel, the Regal is likely to get some interior upgrades as well.

      I hope they keep the wrap-around dash, with or without the wood trim. It's very distinctive and attractive and differs from most other cars. While attending a local auto show, I noticed that many car interiors all seem pretty much the same, especially at the luxury/near-luxery levels. The only car interiors that made an impression on me, and made me remember, are the Lacrosse, XTS, Avalon, and VW CC. I don't know how I feel about the giant grill. It seems like everyone is doing that, and I don't think they look good on most cars. They should try to keep the Lacrosse more unique.

        Seriously? Did you just call it a "LaCrosse"? Just "LaCrosse"? I expected more of you Laser. Where is the term "Government Motors"? From the person who beat to death "VaporVolt" and "Chevy Snuze" in *every* *single* *comment* they every made, I expected more. Where is the, ahem, creativity? Where is the Laser who comes up with a lame joke and then beats it to death? Really. I'm quite disappointed.

          So true, Lexus are the pinnacle of grandpa mobiles. Thank goodness Buick steered away from making geriatric cars and now make fine vehicles that young people can enjoy.

      And I can't wait to buy one - with a fake convertible top, of course - so I can cruise down the left lane of 95 with my left turn signal on at 69 mph on my way back to Century Village after a day of losing money at the arcades... ;)

        Pretty much sounds like anything from Toyota, Lexus, Honda or Acura - blue-hair specials all!

          Agreed! I\'ve had my Regal turbo since August and it\'s been totally trouble free.

      I am so thinnking to trade up to a Buick in the next couple of years. and the appeal of the new Buick plus these redesigns if well executed will definitely seal the deal for me to stay within GM and go upmarket. it will be a regal GS for me.

      I have a Buick Regal 2.0T 6-speed manual. Yeah yeah, everybody said I bought an old man's car until they saw it and rode in it. This ain't your grandpa's Buick!

      I was at the auto show this weak and the Buicks very pretty impressive. Really, all the domestics brought there A game.

      The Buick La Crosse has to step it up as good as it is, because the impala is an extremely great looking and massive Sedan. The Wheels alone on the Impala are the size you get on an up level Enclave. It’s really impressive. It’s a True American Sedan of Yore. Beautiful big and excellently executed. If you have not seen the new 2014 Impala you will be shocked when you see it.
