The 2011 Buick Regal: Time to Get the Money Back on that Deposit For Your Lexus ES350

Follow Jim

Even though GM is selling Opel to help finance its shaky future some dividends of that longtime union are continuing to pay off. What is the proof of this? Take one look at the 2011 Buick Regal and it is easy to see that this is pretty much an Opel Insignia with a flashier grille. And that is no bad thing.

Stylistically this is the best looking Buick in decades. The interior is a true build quality tour de force for General Motors and if you are looking at any of the lower end Lexus sedans you should definitely shop Buick beforehand. Yes, I really am recommending that you shop a Buick dealer before you sign on the dotted line at Lexus. This car really is that good.

The Insignia has been a huge hit for Opel across the pond and there is little doubt that this Buick should bring much younger customers to the brand. Buick continually ranks high in quality and customer satisfaction ratings so its dealers should be ready to handle luxury car owners used to being pampered.

For fans of performance the Buick Regal GS will be powered by a 280 horsepower V6 with Brembo brake stoppers. Yes, those are the same kinds of brakes used by many Ferrari products. What exactly is going on at Buick? Well, with the combination of the Regal and the LaCrosse sedans it is safe to say that there is a full blown product revolution going on. Maybe its time you had another look at Buick.
