Buick Regal 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Buick Regal 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Regal zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Regal 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Buick Regal engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The model year 2017 signals the end of the last Regal generation. Several adjustments over and beyond a handful of paint colors and new wheel designs distinguish the 2017s from the last year's versions. The base model of front-drive includes a 2,4-liter motor with marginally lower acceleration and fuel saving. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharging system is eligible with a much-improved performance of 259 hours and a torque of 295 pound-feet for all versions beyond the base 1-SV. However, the desire of Buick to present the Regal as a luxury product is not as successful as when it first came out, primarily because its rivalry is growing. Their lack of rear space of the passenger, particularly in the head- and legroom departments, is also something to remember if you expect to transport a full load of tall grown-ups.

Any other versions you can compare to Regal are the Acura TLX, which begins with a little higher prices but promises better rear seating, excellent cargo space, and a wide variety of standard features. When you test the TLX, its near relative, Honda Accord, certainly needs a peek too. Toyota Avalon is a parallel line from regular to luxurious vehicles. It has a clean and convenient cab configuration and is powered by a powerful and fuel-efficient V6 engine. Also, there is Lincoln MKZ 2017, another high-end, luxury sedan that offers a rather brave styling speech.

The 2017 Buick Regal comes with standard anti-locking disk brakes, stability control, side-effect airbags on the front seat, and full-length side curtain airbags. On both Premium II and GS, rear-seat side airbags come standard. The OnStar standard device provides automated accident reporting, on-demand roadside assistance, an emergency button, a stolen vehicle locator, and a remote unlocking door.

The optional Driver Confidence 1 kit contains blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a frontal collision system of warning. The Driver Confidence 2 kit includes adaptive cruise control and a more sophisticated frontal collision mitigation system that starts automatic braking in possible crash situations.

A turbocharged Regal stopped in Edmunds brake tests from 60 mi/h at 118 feet, short for a vehicle in this class than on average. A GS with 20-inch additional summer tires managed to halt at additional 113 feet, while most other sport sedans with summer tires pass it much better. The Regal was the top five-star overall during government crash tests, including four stars for complete frontal-impact protection and five stars for total side-impact safety.

The 2017 Buick Regal, a sedan of middle size, is available in 1SV, Sport Touring, Premium II, and GS trim editions.

The basic 1SV Regal offers 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic xenon headlights, foglights, remote entry without a key, power mirrors with heating, cruise control, automatic climate control with two zones, leather upholstery, front seats with heating, an eight-way power driver seat (with two-way power lumbar), a power, height-adjustable passenger seat (with manual adjustments), split-folding rear seats, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel and a rearview mirror with auto-dimming. Also, Buick's IntelliLink infotainment system (with an 8-inch touchscreen), a camera of rearview, Bluetooth phone and audio access, Siri Eyes Free (offers iPhone users voice control over various options through the Bluetooth microphone), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for improved smartphone functionality, a Wi-Fi hot spot with 4G LTE data, OnStar emergency communications, and an audio system with seven speakers and CD player, satellite radio and two USB ports come as standard.

The Sport Touring trim edition offers a stronger turbocharged engine and dual exhaust outlets plus excellent 18-inch wheels with black color pockets and a rear spoiler.

The Premium II suggests front LED signature lighting, rear Parktronic, rear-seat side airbags, entry without a key and push-button ignition, remote start, a steering wheel with heating, an eight-way power passenger seat (with two-way power lumbar), a 110-volt power outlet, a navigation setup and a Bose audio system with nine speakers.

The Regal GS, the top of the Regal line, is equipped with 19-inch wheels (20-inch wheels with summer tires are non-compulsory), premium front and rear fascias, front and rear Parktronic, a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, two selectable drive modes (influencing suspension, steering, and shift calibration), Brembo front brakes, body-color sport rocker panels, an enlarged and configurable gauge-cluster information display, excellent pedals, sport front seats and a sport steering wheel of three spokes.

The 2017 Buick Regal offers an ample dynamic incentive if the optional turbocharged engine is fitted, to be fulfilled. It might not be the most efficient four-cylinder in this price category, but real-world acceleration is ample in most cases. The base model engine provides no other benefits except a small saving of cost.

The Regal brings a smooth trip and an exceptionally peaceful cabin. Models with a sport suspension are remarkably well in the corners with no sacrifices in riding comfort — yes, we will characterize it as borderline joy. What, maybe, keeps the Regal most out of being engaging is a loss of steering feel. But it is light and accurate enough, so you will find it agreeable in usual driving.
