2011 Buick Regal: What Would Grampa Say?

Of all the automobile brands still on the market today, Buick is perhaps most regarded as the brand for old folks. General Motors (GM) consolidated this market when they shuttered the Oldsmobile brand back in 2004. Facing realities of late, GM has been busily refocusing Buick on a younger demographic, with a range of new vehicles. The 2011 Buick Regal stands as shining evidence of that effort.

Beneath the badges, the 2011 Buick Regal is an Opel Insignia. It’s currently being built in Russelsheim, Germany and is considered one of the best sedans in its class in Europe. If the Regal takes off, production may move here to the States.

The new Regal isn’t your Grampa’s big ol’ classic American Buick. It’s not big, it’s not old, and it’s not built in America… but it just might stand a chance of being considered as a classic as time goes by.

    We have been looking at cars and I fell in love with the beauty and classic design of the Regal, it interior is superior, the seats, the console and all around it is a very nice car, looks more like a sport car, no grandpap’s car. I can’t stop thinking about it. Buicks are a fantastic car, we never have problems with them, but have always shied away from the smaller, less expensive car, but this car is awesome.

    As a heads up, it looks like this can only be done BEFORE upgrading to Lion.
