If you are excited about the 2011 Buick Regal, then we have something special for you. General Motors has just announced pricing details on the 2011 Regal, which will hit dealerships in the second quarter of 2010. At launch, the 2011 Buick Regal will only be available in the premium CXL trim, with prices starting at $26,995 including a $750 destination charge. The Regal CXL Turbo model will start at $29,495, also including the $750 destination charge.

Power for the base 2011 Regal CXL comes from a 2.4L Ecotec direct-injected 4-cylinder making 182-hp while the CXL Turbo is powered by a 2.0L Ecotec turbocharged 4-cylinder making 220-hp. Both models will be offered with an automatic 6-speed transmission with Driver Shift Control (DSC). The 2.0L Regal CXL Turbo will be available with a 6-speed manual transmission later this year.

In 2011, the entry-level Regal CX will join the lineup as a 2012 model year with a smaller price tag. There will be no CXS model offered in the Regal lineup like the LaCrosse, partly because the Regal GS will be the range-topper.
