We know from rumors that a GS variant of the next-generation Regal is incoming. But we have been wondering what would be powering it. Would it be a turbocharged-four like in the current GS or go with a V6? Thanks to a slip-up on Buick Canada's website, we might have an answer.
The Truth About Cars reports that a couple of days ago, this line appeared on the Regal landing page of Buick Canada’s site.
"Engineered to make getting there all the fun, the all-new Regal’s excellent driving performance is something to be experienced with available new powertrain and AWD system (3.6L V6 on GS and Twin Clutch AWD)."
This was removed from Buick Canada's site, but if you do a Google for this line, you'll find it. This line is still cached in Google's servers.
Unsurprisingly, a Buick spokesperson declined to comment.
To us, the V6 option for the GS seems possibly legit and our reasoning behind it deals with the all-new Holden Commodore. As we have reported previously, the top engine for the Commodore will be a 3.6L V6 producing 306 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. We wouldn't be shocked if this is what powers the Regal GS.
We'll be keeping a close eye on this story.
