Buick has recently announced the official starting price of the 2013 Regal model in the United States, which has been set at $29,015.
The 2013 Buick Regal has been recently rated by the EPA and the model can achieve 36 mpg on the highway, thanks to its compact lithium-ion battery and small electric motor/generator. Buick is also saying that the updated Regal is now getting the eAssist as standard.
“It takes advantage of the best parts of a hybrid, and eAssist is now standard equipment for Regal. These new functions happen seamlessly, a requirement for Buick drivers who demand a refined driving experience. They’ll really only notice a difference at the pump”, said the eAssist global chief engineer, Stephen Poulos. “With eAssist, Buick is redefining what a ‘conventional powertrain’ means to costumers. It changes the fuel economy – but not the experience – for the 97 percent of new cary buyers who aren’t buying hybrids.”
Besides the powertrain mentioned above, the 2013 Buick Regal is also available with a 2.0 liter turbocharged Ecotec engine, which is developing a total output of 220 horsepower, while the Regal GS is getting 270 HP. Both the Turbo and the GS are getting an automatic or a manual transmission but the eAssist is only available with the six-speed automatic gearbox.
