The 2013 Buick Regal luxury sport sedan is set to debut at Timbrook Buick in the fall with a standard advanced eAssist powertrain. The new powertrain delivers unrivaled fuel efficiency and power, and is one of the most technologically advanced engines in Buicks history.
WitheAssist, Buick is redefining what a conventional powertrain means to customers, said Stephen Poulos,eAssist global chief engineer. It changes the fuel economy but not the experience for the 97 percent of new car buyers who arent buying hybrids.
Buicks eAssist utilizes a compact lithium-ion battery and a small electric generator, as opposed to the heavy alternator used in hybrid vehicles, to return 35 mpg highway. The 2013 Buick Regals eAssist incorporates several innovative technologies to further increase efficiency.
The regenerative braking system is able to convert braking energy into electricity that can help to power the engine. eAssist also employs automatic start/stop functionality, which turns the engine off when the vehicle is at rest and then seamlessly back on when the driver lifts his/her foot from the brake.
It takes advantage of the
best parts of a hybrid, andeAssist is now standard equipment for Regal, said Poulos. These new functions happen seamlessly, a requirement for Buick drivers who demand a refined driving experience. Theyll really only notice a difference at the pump.
Drivers looking for more power can choose from two additional engine options. First is the 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec engine that generates 220 horsepower, and the second option is the Regal GS trim which utilizes variable valve timing and direct injection in order produce an impressive 270 horsepower.
