    Whoops! Buick Canada Reveals Existence of V6 for Regal GS

      Thanks Buick Canada!

    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.

    I feel ya on the moving closer.. I'm more thinking of finding a job closer to home. My commute isn't terrible but nearly an hour each way gets old and that time adds up. Similar to you, 10 hours a week just commuting... that sucks.

    Hopefully a few things will be changing over the next few months to allow it.  fingers crossed.

    I spend over 2 hours on the road 5 to 6 days a week.  Really want to move closer, but can't right now. 

    i had a 43 mile commute for about 3 years.  On bad weather days it really consumed my life.   otherwise, it was generally fatiguing.  But the moment you move closer to work then the work goes bye bye or something crazy like that.

    Commutes can suck.  Here in Az most of my jobs have had commutes in the 6-20 miles each way range, worst was 27 miles each way for 2 years, mostly freeway.  Worst commute I ever had was 68 miles each way back in '02 in Colorado, did that for 3 months until I moved a couple miles from the office then a month later changed jobs. 

    Looking forward to when my Ohio move is done in a few weeks, then I will be working from home most of the time.

    Mine is 30 min but I take to the back roads in the Lake, park district passing two golf courses including Firestone country club. The surroundings make for a nice trip

    the one road was my own Nürburgring road but too many cops anymore.

    25-30 min commute. Lucky I work for a boss that allows me to stay being a morning person so I start early and end early missing the bulk of the commuters and the congestion that goes with it.

    Gave up on ever living close to work. Always seemed that once I got close to work, I ended up changing jobs.
