2017 Buick Regal release date

Review

The new 2017 Buick Regal is well suited for people looking for an alternative to either midsize sedans or entry-level luxury sedan thanks to features such as a long list of standard features, an all-wheel drive system – a plus as many of its rivals lack one, brisk acceleration, and an optional turbocharged engine that offers a stonking power. All these for a reasonable price tag estimated to be $27,000.

2017 Buick Regal front angle, grille and headlights

That said, the new Buick Regal 2017 continues with Buick’s long history of offering an-almost unrivaled value proposition. But even with such impressiveness, there’re a couple of gripes that can hinder such a seemingly successful streak. The bae engine, for instance, offers a mediocre acceleration that might be a complete turn of for a driving enthusiast. The 2017 Buick Regal interior lacks refinement of a true luxury sedan. Loading luggage might be troublesome as the trunk has a narrow opening. And the fuel economy are rather middling relative to the available competition.

But if you can manage to live with the aforementioned foibles, then the 2017 Buick Regal will arguably offer you more than you bargained for. For one, there’s the optional 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers 259 horsepower available for all the models except the ISV model. With such a mill, you’ll be save from the standard lethargic, inefficient 2.4L engine. On the refinement front, the lack of refinement can be solved by opting for the top-of-the-line models but that will cost you an extra and thereby rip off the value proposition you thought you enjoyed.

But even if you stick with the base model, Buick has offered it an impressive list of features such as smartphone app integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality; an automatic climate control, leather upholstered seats, and an eight-inch infotainment display. While no one can contest Buick Regal 2017 strong suits, the market offers plenty of options as well.

Such options include the Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu, and the Volkswagen CC. But if you don’t mind spending more for added value, you can consider alterative such as the 2017 Audi A4, BMW 3 Series, Lincoln MKZ 2017, and Acura TLX.

New 2017 Buick Encore – Release Date, Specs & Info

The new 2017 Buick Encore is worth a look if three-row crossovers seem bulky or expensive. It features user-friendly technology features, quite cabin, top crash test scores, good fuel economy, and a truly compact size. The Buick Encore release date should be expected sometime before this fall as a 2017 year model.

2017 Buick Encore auto show side view, alloy wheels

Despite a seemingly illustrious introduction above, the Buick Encore 2017’s appeal is however hindered by its interior space limit and modest performance figures relative to its competition. The Encore still embodies many elements Buick is known for including building large luxury sedans. The element are apparent in terms of the abundant upscale features, a whisper-quiet cabin, and impressive fuel economy ratings.

2017 Buick Encore rear view, taillights and tailpipe

Changes are modest for the Buick Encore 2017 and might not be ostensible for a Buick-brand novice. After a long and hard look, changes can be seen mainly on its interior. Performance is unchanged over the previous year as it comes with the familiar turbocharged 1.4L engine able to churn out 153 horsepower and 177 pounds-feet of torque for the 2017 Buick Encore Sport Touring, and 138 horsepower and 148 pounds-feet of torque for the rest of lineup.

Besides the power cranking out beneath its hood, other strengths the Encore boasts of include top crash test scores and impressive fuel economy ratings. The EPA is yet to make the 2017 ratings available, however, judging from the existing model’s MPG ratings of 23/30/26 mpg in the city/highway/combined for the AWD Encore, we should expect a slight improvement of, say, 1mpg.

Many buyers may still find the 2017 Buick Encore interior a snug, nevertheless. Furthermore, its cargo volume and noticeable cramped interior may be bested by other top-dogs in the segment such as the 2017 Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5 2017, and Buick’s own Envision. Those looking for better driving dynamics and superior interior space may find the Fiat 500X, Mazda CX-3, and Honda HR-V for 2017 as a popular choices.

The 2017 Buick Envision MSRP price starts from $35,870. It derives its motivation from a standard 2.5L FFV four-cylinder engine that helps it drive 170 horsepower @6,300rpm and 192 pounds-ft. of torque @4,400 rpm to the ground. The top-of-the-line 2017 Buick Envision Premium II 4dr SUV comes equipped with a 2.0L gasoline four-cylinder engine that raises the stakes up to about 252 horsepower @5,500rpm and 260 pounds-feet of torque @2,000rpm. Besides the impressive performance, fuel economy remains impressive across the entire lineup. The Buick Envision 2017 release date should be expected before this fall.

Review

Shopping for a convertible? You’ll probably find yourself choosing between compacts like the Volkswagen Beetle and Mini Cooper, muscle cars like the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro, and luxury cars like BMW 2 Series and the 2017 Audi A3. Which begs the question, where did the reasonably priced four-seat roadsters disappear to? Simply put, automotive marques simply stopped producing them. However, Buick seems to think otherwise with its all-new 2017 Buick Cascada.

2017 Buick Cascada front view, grille and headlights

Just like the Buick Regal which has four doors, the new Cascada seems to have been plucked directly from Opel. The Cascada is fun to drive, engaging, and is outfitted with advanced suspension components. Its body structure is stiff that has resulted in a better handling and a compliant ride quality. Take the Buick Cascada for a test drive and then will you realize that it is indeed of substance.

2017 Buick Cascada rear view, taillights and tailpipe

Being a convertible, the Cascada suffers from a cramped backseat which can only accommodate only two smaller adults. Further aback, the trunk space is a bit larger than you’d expect and can be increased with the fold-down rear seatback feature.

The 2017 Buick Cascada interior is sleek and augmented by upscale features and technologies for the money. The control layout and the infotainment system are driver oriented. A suite of driving aides is available in plenty both by default and as options.

2017 Buick Cascada Engine Specs

Beneath the skin of the 2017 Buick Cascada is a 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes a stonking 200 horsepower and 207 lbs. ft. of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission system is tasked with the sole responsibility of transferring all this power generated by the mill to the front wheels.

For a small car such as the Cascada, the output aforementioned above is arguably very strong. One might argue that its powertrain has its work already cut out for it, as the 2017 Buick Cascada curb weight is only 2 tones.

2017 Buick Cascada engine

0-60 mph with the Cascada takes 8.6 seconds, which is somehow a disappointment considering the level of competition it will face once it is released to the market. The EPA estimates that the fuel economy ratings stand at about 20/27/23 mpg in the city/highway/combined.

The overall cabin design is sleek, and well-designed with the highlights being the well-laid out center console and the comfortable and supportive seats. The infotainment system has been updated.

Despite a seemingly impressive 2017 Buick LaCrosse CV, there’re other competitors in its class that also boasts of niche features, too. Some of these include the 2017 Chevrolet Impala, the Lexus ES, and the Toyota Avalon.

The 2017 Toyota Avalon price starts from around $32,000.

New 2017 Buick Enclave Release Date, Specs & Info

The Buick Enclave will once again grace our dealerships sometime in mid-2017 probably as 2018 Buick Enclave. This information is however regarded a secret by Buick for now. What we do know is the new Enclave will feature several redesigns regardless of whether it will be offered as a 2017 or 2018 year model. Highlights to expect from the expected model include a smooth and quiet ride quality, top safety scores, an eight-passenger seating capacity, a generous cargo capacity, and a luxurious cabin. As mentioned above, its release date should be expected probably in mid-2017.

The Buick Enclave 2017 is a large SUV that offers a seating capacity for up to eight occupants. Besides the copious accommodation, it also comes with a generous cargo space, and numerous standard features for the money. And guess what, you get all of that without forking out a premium price.

Families looking for factors such as fuel economy, top safety scores, versatility, and technologies have tons of SUVs to comb through. However, finding a crossover SUV that offers all of the above for a bargain price is a rarity. The 2017 Buick Enclave is perhaps one among a handful of such vehicles that can offer everything you’d want in a large three-row crossover without making you break the bank or dip into your children’s college fund.

The Buick Enclave 2017, although mechanically similar to Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia 2017, is its own man when it comes to ride serenity, and dignified styling. It pours itself to the road effortlessly soaking up bumps and mundane road conditions to offer an impressive ride quality akin to that of a proper land yacht.

In stark contrast to most third-row benches that are more often than not cramped, the Enclave takes pride in its spacious third-row bench. Even so, the cargo volume isn’t compromised and offers a reasonable 23.3 cu. ft. of space. Some few idiosyncrasies do exist however despite a seemingly illustrious review. Maneuvering in tight spaces is a hustle considering its massive size. The climate and infotainment controls are rather dated by conventional methods, and the interior quality leaves more to be desired.

Alternatives you can consider include the “A” rated 2017 Toyota Highlander, Acura MDX, Ford Explorer 2017, and the 2017 Dodge Durango. The Toyota Highlander 2017 price starts from around $30,000. Value is offered in terms of interior refinement, a functional cabin design, a smooth and strong V6 engine, whisper-quiet ride quality, and a seating capacity for up to eight people. The 2017 Toyota Highlander release date should be expected sometime before this fall, at least according to recent media reports.

Another solid pick is the 2017 Acura MDX. Specs include a starting price of $43,000, generous standard features, excellent crash-test scores, confident acceleration, adept handling, quiet cabin, and impressive fuel economy. The Acura MDX 2017 release date should be expected this fall.

New 2017 Buick Verano – Release Date and Review

The new 2017 Buick Verano is a good option if you’re shopping in the compact sedan segment. It comes with highlights such as a comfortable and composed ride quality, a competitive price tag, an efficient and turbocharged engine, and a whisper-quiet interior. In addition to the features mentioned, it also brings American luxury car qualities to the small car realm. The Buick Verano release date should be expected sometime this fall.

For a couple of decades, the American small car market was reserved for people who couldn’t afford much else. This small niche of cars was however thriving in Japanese and European markets. But nowadays, these small cars have become a force to reckon with in the market especially after some level of upscale quality was added to the whole picture.

Demand for compact and fuel economy cars is on an all-time high now in the United States. Some of the appealing features the Buick Verano brings on its table on goodies include tons of standard and optional features, a well-crafted interior, and an upscale yet reserved interior. Talking of the 2017 Buick Verano interior, it provides ample space, the seats well designed, the center console well-laid out, and the material quality upscale even for the basic model.

Although Buick says the newest model has improved backseat space, we should probably take that with a pinch of salt for now until the vehicle debuts later on this year. For those looking for actual ample backseat space there are several options available on the market today including the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima, and Honda Accord. However, these are luxury vehicles that are offered with a higher price point than that of the 2017 Verano.

Direct rivals for the 2017 Buick Verano include the Audi A3, Acura ILX, and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. These rivals have stronger engines, greater cachet, and better-crafted interiors. Considering the price, however, the 2017 Buick Verano is undoubtedly an unbeatable choice here and beyond.
