Officially Announced: 2012 Buick Regal GS

The Buick Regal itself has been garnering great reviews and building on Buick’s sales, but to really bring younger buyers into the tri-shield’s showrooms, it needs a performance car.  It’s been mentioned before, but last week, GM announced that the Buick Regal GS would be going into production.  Click past the jump for details, pictures and the press release.

Scheduled for a mid-2011 release, the GS will have a more potent version of GM’s 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, sport-inspired bodywork, and a driver-selectable multi-mode suspension, dubbed Drive Control System.

A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic with manual mode.  This will be the first time in a long time that Buick will offer a manual transmission in any of its cars, definitely a good start to getting younger buyers to consider Buick.

In the time leading up to its release, expect more details, pictures and pricing.
