    Considering a Regal GS... talk me out of it

    I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but Buick is running INSANE deals right now on Buick GS's. Fully loaded 2019 Regal GS's can be obtained for $35K-$36K... inclusive of massaging seats, wireless phone charging, LCD cluster, sport exhaust, adaptive cruise, AWD, Bose stereos, etc, etc. I'd like the Kia Stinger better for my next purchase BUT a Regal GS for $35K-$36K is a heck of a deal.

    Reason 1 - 365HP/376 lb-ft VS 310 hp/282 lb-ft
    Reason 2 - 0-60: 4.6 VS 5.8
    Reason 3 - Curb weight: 3,800ish VS 4,270 lbs

    Bonus reason - $700 for a JB4 tune and your over 400HP.

    Do i need to keep going? 37K could get you a GT if you look around.

    1 Important thing to remember IF you get the Regal GS... Dont forget to wave at a civic when it passes you :)

    Actually... road tests have clocked it at 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. Not as fast as the Stinger, but no slouch by any means.

    I personal just dont like the look and specs of the GS for 35k.
    Think the only Buick Id like to drive would be a 70-72 Buick GSX.

    I wouldn’t blame you looking at it also. Nice looking car, also a hatch, similar feature set, but it is front wheel drive based. I wanted a rwd performance car when I was looking. I’m actually a person that picked up my Stinger for $37k. No, it doesn’t have all the available options that you listed a Regal GS could come with. I remember coming across this gem of a video

    Not going to lie the new Regal is a sharp looking car but I'd be more about reliability. You can probably get a new 2018 Stinger GT for $35K-$36K
