I'd replace both Regal and LaCrosse in their current forms with ONE Epsilon II mid-size, front or all-wheel-drive, 5-6-passenger model: and it'd be called the Century! Special, Super, Ultra, (later) GS trims, 3.6-liter DOHC High Feature 290hp V-6 (standard all except GS) or 2.4/2.5-liter ECOTEC eAssist I-4 (Special/Super) engines, 6 or 8-speed OD automatic TAPShift III transmissions, front split-bench or bucket seats for Special/Superl bucket-only for others, cloth (like velour not that sandpaper crap in everything these days for the last decade-its horrible) or leather for Special; leather for all the rest; perforated/special leather for Ultra/GS; keep the successful and long-awaited ascension toward premium luxury, how's $30,000 start? Would this be a good mix for keeping real Buick buyers happy and roping in the imports? 4-door notchback sedan, 5-door, 2-3-seat (5-8-passenger) Estate Wagon, 2-door, 5-passenger notchback coupe, and, if we're feeling like a styling/heritage experiment, Sedanette 2-door fastback 4-5-passenger coupe, but obviously, the sedan as always would be the primary focus. And Buick needs a REAL full-size car again, the LaCrosse is still just a mid-size, has a tiny trunk, and too many small shortcomings for me to really recommend/like it, and honestly, I've never yet embraced any LaCrosse of either generation. As of right now, I'll stick with the old Century, though its equipped like a Chevy as it should not have been. But I welcome the Anthem, another vehicle Buick has needed for over a decade-maybe GM will do crossovers (excluding the Lambda Trio) right finally!

anyone think a hatchback Regal would do anything in the market?

Buick, when the new Anthem arrives, will explode. Female buyers and crossovers........

I think neither the liftback nor the wagon from the Insignia range would be successfull in the US.

I think there is a bit of a mixup because of us referring to the coming mid-size Buick CUV as the Anthem, perhaps a bit prematurely. There is a China Only Buick mid-size crossover being prepared (Think another Vueick) and possibly using that name, but it will be different from what we get here.
