Along with the pricing for the 2012 Buick Regal eAssist announced earlier today, Buick released the pricing details on the new 2012 Regal GS – the high-performance variant of the sedan. The 2012 Buick Regal GS will hit dealers later this fall with prices starting at $35,310.
“As is the case on all Regal models, the GS and eAssist offer the winning combination of advanced technology, no-compromise driving performance, luxurious style and passenger comfort that make Buick one of the fastest growing automotive brands in North America,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of Buick Marketing.

Power for the 2012 Buick Regal GS comes from a Ecotec 2.0L direct-injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine pumping out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Mated standard to a 6-speed manual transmission (6-speed automatic will be available as an option later), 0 to 60 mph comes in 6.7 seconds. The Regal GS is also equipped with the Interactive Drive Control System, which adapts damping and other functions, allowing the driver to choose a standard adaptive setting, Sport mode, and a GS mode, which is the ‘wildest’ of the three modes.
The 2012 Regal GS also comes with push-button start; a leather-wrapped, flat-bottom sport steering wheel with audio controls; metal sport pedals; and leather-appointed, heated and 12-way adjustable sport seating. A Harman Kardon premium 336-watt, 5.1 Matrix Surround Sound system with nine speakers is also standard.
