Buick has announced pricing for the refreshed 2014 Regal. The base model offers a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, 259-horsepower, four-cylinder engine for $30,615 (*after $925 delivery and destination fee). The standard turbo can be replaced by Buick's eAssist mild hybrid system for $32,485. The electrified powertrain delivers 36 miles per gallon, in place of the turbo's 30 mpg on the highway.

The big powertrain news for 2014 is the inclusion of an all-wheel-drive system for an extra $2,175. Marking one of the few uses of all-wheel drive on a Buick car, the new Regal AWD has an electronic, limited-slip differential and a HiPer Strut front suspension, which is the same front arrangement used on the hot, front-drive Regal GS.

Speaking of the Regal GS, it's not so hot for 2014. It sports the same 259-horsepower engine as the standard Regal, but offsets that with a wealth of standard, optional or flat-out exclusive equipment like active dampers, Brembo brakes and a Bose stereo. Prices (all including the $925 fee) start at $37,830. Like the standard car, the GS will be available with all-wheel drive for the first time, bringing it a bit more in line with its cousins across the pond - Opel Insignia OPC and Vauxhall Insignia VXR. Prices for the GS AWD start at $40,195.

Different as they may be, the Regal and Regal GS offer the same pair of option packages. The Driver Confidence I package costs $1,090 and adds a number of safety features, like forward collision alert, blind spot monitoring, lane change alert, lane departure warning and cross traffic alert. The Driver Confidence II pack adds adaptive cruise control and collision preparation for $2,295, but must be added on top of the first option group.

      Now that they offer AWD, what is the excuse for not also offering the V6 from the OPC in the US also? The GS is begging for that engine, especially now that the base model now has the same 259hp as the GS. Putting the 325hp V6 in the GS would give it the performance to separate it from the base model.

        The iron block 2.8TT is a porker and not used in the US anymore. Now a 3.6TT at 400+ hp be any better? Nothing wrong with the 2.0T as they are easy to tune thru Trifecta for $300 and with supporting mods to result in more than 320hp. The dyno graphs I seen of VTune Stage 1(next stage is turbo/intercooler upgrades) loses to today's 2.0T in the torque department at higher rpms. Torque levels are consistently less than 2.0T all the way to redline. Though the 2.8 has a nice bump in torque at low rpms the turbo-4 can't match, it is short lived and not used in high gear, high speed passing.

        The Sonata is NOT entry level lux - drive both and pay attention to refinement, handling, interior, quietness. The Regal is a higher class of car. Nothing wrong with comparing a Sonata to the Malibu Turbo - which is also quieter and more refined but costs less than the Sonata .... so the choice is refinement, or just raw numbers (that Hyundai and Kia have 'questionable' numbers for everything from fuel economy to HP ratings is well known).

        The Sonata doesn't really perform like a 274 HP car though...

      I'm sorry, but I just can't fathom paying almost 37k for a fully loaded, non-hybrid, Regal. This is the type of vehicle you purchased used OR lease. And Buick/GM REALLY needs to reconsider the V6 for the GS to, not only further distance itself from the base Regal but, to also justify it's near 38k starting price.

        The 2.0T is where it is at right now. With CAFE raising it's number for the forseeable future a 3.6TT could makes it's into a $50K Buick GN. But who would pay it if you could get a CTS for similar price/performance? Check SaabCentral 9-3 section when someone asks about the 2.8TT vs 2.0T. Even when modified slightly the turbo-4 can hold torque longer into the operating range.

        I'm a fan of this car but I agree with you on pricing. No one has ever cross shopped this with an audi or benz and never will. However if priced correctly Buick could push its German heritage and value pricing.

      $ 30K for this when I can pick up a Mercedes-Benz CLA for about the same (or less if we're talking all-wheel drive models).

        @DexterM
        The CLA compares much more closely to the under $25K Buick Verano than the Regal, if you really want to compare Buick against MB. Buy a Verano and save over $6K.

          Buy a used Turbo Verano for under $25K and spend $300 on an ecu tune and end up with more torque than a CLA AMG.

      Yes! People on Medicare rejoice! You can replace your old Buick with a newer model for under $30k.

      Buick needs to replace the waterfall grill with something else - it looks so old fashioned and clunky. It hinders the overall design.

        I agree it seems a bit pricey starting out. I would figure more around 26,900.

        Impala is a version of the Lacrosse and the Cadillac XTS, not the Regal. Regal is an Opel brought over from Germany.

        Impala is not a 'version' of the Regal. Impala is the size of the LaCrosse - pay attention, there may be a test!

          @Alfonso T. Alvarez
          The Regal/Malibu is a downsized version of the same platform that underpins the LaCrosse/Impala/XTS/Saab 9-5; so in it's most basic form, it could be considered a "version".

      Wait a few months, the incentives will bring it closer to the 20 mark like the last few model years.

          $25K sticker would be too cheap for its size class and bring it too close to the Chevrolet Malibu. Buick is supposed to be more of a premium brand. Even ten years ago, the lesser equipped Buick Regal started at $25K which is more like $32K in current dollars.
