2012 Buick Regal GS Turbo Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/regal/2012/ The 2012 Buick Regal GS turbo is the perfect example of the new direction that Buick is taking. Based off the European Opel Insignia; the Buick Regal has been redesigned from the ground up as a performance luxury car with the hopes it will attract a younger demographic of car buyers. And GM did a good job in updating the styling as well as the powerplant.
The 2012 Buick Regal GS is powered by a turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. The Regal also manages an acceptable 19 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. The 2012 Buick Regal GS has a base price of $34,450. When you look at the Regal GS you will notice it is very sporty and that's because the Regal has a lot of German heritage due in part to the Opel underpinnings.
Beyond the turbo engine the Regal GS rocks huge 20 inch rims with Brembo brakes. This is anther tell tale sign that Buick is moving away from the senior citizen segment in the hopes of attracting a younger car buying audience.

2012 Buick Regal GS gets a power boost
Buick has released the final performance specifications for the 2012 Regal GS.
While it's no Insignia OPC, the car has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 270 hp (201kW / 274 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400Nm) of torque - 15 hp (11 kW / 15 PS) more than original estimates. This enables the GS to accelerate from 0-60 mph in approximately 6.7 seconds, when equipped with a six-speed manual tranmission.
According to Mike Anderson, Ecotec global chief engineer and program manager, "The Regal GS 2.0L turbo delivers the highest specific output of any production engine GM has ever offered, and at 135 hp per liter is the most power dense engine ever certified by SAE."
The 2012 Buick Regal GS will start arriving at U.S. dealerships this fall, but there's no word on pricing.
