Buick Regal offers a distinctive approach to spirited performance, while delivering the brand’s signature quietness and the latest technologies – including enhancements to Buick IntelliLink for 2022 and the return of OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
New on 2022 Regal models, Buick IntelliLink comes with an enhanced eight-inch color touch screen that allows phone integration technology with applications such as navigation, hands-free text messaging, contact lists and entertainment apps for news and music. The technology allows drivers to keep up in an increasingly connected world, while staying safe behind the wheel.
The 2022 Regal is available in five retail trim levels: Regal 1SV, Regal 1SL, Premium II (1SP) GS (1SX) and the all new Avenir.
The base Regal starts with 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, dual exhaust outlets, heated mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power driver seat (with four-way power lumbar), a power height-adjustable passenger seat (with otherwise manual adjustments), split-folding rear seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Also standard are an 8-inch touchscreen display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, OnStar emergency communications and a seven-speaker audio system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack, an iPod/USB audio interface and Buick’s IntelliLink smartphone and voice command integration system.
The Premium I adds rear parking sensors, keyless entry/ignition, remote start, a heated steering wheel, an eight-way power passenger seat (with four-way power lumbar) and a 120-volt power outlet.
Note that the Premium I’s available eAssist mild hybrid powertrain comes with 17-inch wheels, low-rolling-resistance tires and a concealed single exhaust outlet.
The Premium II starts with the Premium I’s standard features and adds xenon headlights, rear-seat side airbags, a navigation system and a nine-speaker Bose audio system.
The GS boasts 19-inch wheels (20-inch wheels with summer tires are optional), a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, adjustable drive modes (influencing suspension, steering and shift calibration), front parking sensors, Brembo front brakes, body-color lower rocker panels, a rear spoiler, an upgraded and configurable gauge cluster information display, sport front seats and a three-spoke sport steering wheel.
Most of these GS features are exclusive, but the sport-tuned suspension (minus the adaptive dampers) is also specified on non-GS Regals with AWD. A sunroof is optional on all Regals, and the navigation system can be added to the base and Premium I trims.
Optional on Premium II and GS are two Driver Confidence packages. The first — which requires the sunroof — includes numerous safety technologies (blind-spot monitor, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert) as well as driver memory settings, while the second — which requires the first — adds adaptive cruise control and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking.
Like the two U.S. Avenir models before it, the LaCrosse and Enclave, the Regal Avenir offers interior and exterior enhancements along with a host of standard features. Inside, you’ll find diamond quilted front seats with Avenir-embroidered headrests, sill plates emblazoned with the Avenir logo, and the first application of Buick’s new cloud-capable infotainment system. The interior can be had in either a Whisper Beige or Ebony color scheme.
