Report: A new Buick Regal is expected in 2017, to be built in Germany next to Opels

AutomotiveNews reports that a new Buick is destined to be released in 2017, following the replacement of the next generation Opel/Vauxhall Insignia. This makes complete sense considering the Buick Regal is a slightly reworked and renamed Opel Insignia, both of which are very good cars.

As a result, the trend is expected to continue as the new Regal should once again be a revised Opel Insignia, which is also due as a 2017 model. General Motors of Europe said production and assembly of future Opels is to happen at their plant in Russelsheim, Germany. As a result, Buicks are to be built alongside the future Opels since near-future Buicks are expected to be based on similar Opel models, like the Regal is based on the current Insignia.

Additionally, Buick’s production couldn’t be brought to Canada’s GM Oshawa plant because of cost and the fact that the Chevrolet Camaro, the last-generation Impala, and the Cadillac XTS are using up the plant’s resources already. Because Canada’s Oshawa plant is too expensive, it makes more sense for GM to build Buicks in Germany because of their connection with Opel.
