Like the company’s related Century sedan, Buick’s midsize, front-drive Regal is awaiting a redesign. Details on changes for the 2004 model year have not yet been released.
In contrast to the conservative Century, which features a front bench seat, the Regal is sportier in appearance and comes equipped with front bucket seats that are more appealing to those much-sought younger buyers. The 3.8-liter V-6 engine is supercharged in the Regal GS model. Special Regal models with color and trim features created by fashion designer Joseph Abboud have been marketed in recent years.
