The Regal comes in basic LS trim and performance-oriented GS guise, the latter of which packs a supercharged engine.
For 2002, a new Joseph Abboud special edition is offered in both LS and GS trims. This is the third model to come out of Buicks partnership with the renowned fashion designer. The Abboud models feature special club-style front bucket seats with Chestnut leather seating areas that are reminiscent of those in Buicks LaCrosse concept vehicle. LATCH child-seat tethers are new for 2002, but little else has changed.
The Regal displays a more aggressive appearance than the similar-sized Century and is led by a bolder grille and different rear styling.
