When General Motors remade itself following its bankruptcy restructuring of summer 2009, the company began a process to shed itself of four unwanted brands: Pontiac, Saab, Saturn and Hummer. The fact Buick remained behind seemed a curious one at first, given Pontiac’s stronger sales.

As the 2012 Buick Regal is expected to hit local retailers in 2011, fans of the series can expect some notable changes to this brand new model to keep things fresh and to respond to the changing needs of the market. Already, the Buick Regal 2012 model is already getting a lot of comparison with the earlier model releases. It is therefore important to look specifically into what are the features incorporated here that will differentiate it from other mid-size sedans currently out in the market.
The use of chrome grille on the body of the 2012 Regal is one of its most striking features right off the bat. However, it still exhibits that same style inspired by the GS and Gran Sport models of the past. The 19-inch alloy wheels will also come with spare tires and all season tires to ensure that this vehicle can handle wear and tear. Meanwhile, the new body dimension for this model currently measures at 73.1 inches in width, 190.2 inches in length, and about 107.8 inches for its wheelbase. There are also a few more helpful features included in the vehicle such as variable intermittent wipers, power glass sunroof, and a rear defogger. Read the rest of this entry »
