No coupe or sport wagon Buick Regal planned, Regal GS won’t get 325-hp V6 turbo

Earlier this morning, General Motors dropped the pricing details on the 2011 Buick Regal CXL, which will start at $26,995. A couple of hours ago, Buick/GMC General Manager Brian Sweeney held a live chat on GM’s FastLane Blog, giving us info on what else GM has planned for the Regal.

One of the interesting questions Sweeney was asked was whether or not there will be a coupe or sport wagon version for the Opel Insignia based Buick Regal.

“No, but we are looking at all the different possibilities for Regal based on what’s available on this global architecture and the success of other models in global markets such as Europe and China,” Sweeney said.

Sweeney also spoke a little about the upcoming Regal GS. Asked whether GM will offer the Regal GS with the 325-hp 2.8L Turbo V6 found in the Opel Insignia OPC (AWD), he said: “At 255hp with 0-60 in less than 6 seconds we think we’re in good shape if we bring this to production.”
