Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The five-seat Buick Regal midsize sedan sees a number of updates for the 2014 model year, including subtle exterior styling changes, revamped interior controls, a new turbocharged engine and available all-wheel drive. The Regal competes with the Acura TSX, Audi A4 and Volvo S60, and the 2014 model hits dealerships in fall 2013.
ExteriorThe Regal's exterior updates for the 2014 model year are subtle and don't dramatically alter the sedan's appearance. The taillights see the biggest changes with new elements that extend into the trunklid. Though different than the 2013 Honda Civic's taillights, they take after them. Exterior features include:
Standard 17-inch alloy wheels; 18-, 19- or 20-inch wheels available
New grille styling
Available xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights and LED daytime running lights
Unique styling, lowered ride height and available summer tires (GS)
InteriorBuick fixed the element of the Regal that was most in need of improvement by revamping the center control panel as part of the car's updates for 2014. In the process, it dramatically simplified the interfaces for the audio and climate systems compared to the grid of buttons that dominated the dashboard of the previous Regal. Interior features include:
IntelliLink entertainment system with 8-inch touch-screen
Instrument panel with 4.2- or 8-inch (GS) screen
Available Bose premium audio
Under the HoodThe Regal's base drivetrain is a mild-hybrid system that consists of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and a six-speed automatic transmission. Total output is 182 horsepower.
Turbo and GS trims come with a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that results in a horsepower gain for the Turbo model — but a loss for the GS. The engine is rated at 259 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque. Turbo and GS trims also have a six-speed automatic, and the GS is available with a six-speed manual. Mechanical features include:
