A likely scenario is the use of GM's long-rumored, and recently spotted, twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6. It's expected to produce between 350 and 400 horsepower, which would be more than enough power in a bad black Buick with a Grand National badge
Does you car have Ka-chunka-chunk
HEMI + AWD = OMG
Good Lord! Why am I just now hearing about this?!
I've had 3 regals, 2 where turbos, 1 was a GN. Pre intercooled , but still.
I'm very interested in this. I didn't know GNX was still around. Will these cars come out of the Buick factory as a GNX? If so, that's not right. Need input!
Any idiot can build it strong, it's an engineers job to build it light.
I been a Pontiac guy my whole life and a BOP (Buick Olds Pontiac) fan as well. GS 455's, Stage 1 455's, GN's, and GNX's were all BEASTS!!! I even use the Buick motto "Going Fast with Class!" describes my 300C SRT perfect!!! They better get it right because they have a tough act to follow
The Alpha platform is re-defining the smaller sedan segment. Class leader in several areas including steering and brakes among others.
No offense to the former Buick owners but the older Regal based Buicks were terrible, only good in a straight line.
Expect excellence, as the General is very serious now...
Not many US cars in the 80's could shake a stick at the performance of todays beasts. The GN I had (84) was by far the best handling of all my Regals. I wouldn't call any of them terrible. But my 300 is far better and heavier. I wouldn't have used a Regal for much more than drag racing anyway. They are popular amung the circle and dirt track cround too.
