The biggest news for the Regal comes under the hood. The 2.0-liter turbo engine now produces 259 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque in both the Turbo and the GS Regals. This is a significant power increase for the Turbo, but a slight power decrease for the GS. The base 2.4-liter eAssist engine remains unchanged, and makes 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque.
An available Haldex all-wheel-drive system will also now be available on the Regal GS, but only with the 6-speed automatic transmission. For a 6-speed manual, buyers will have to opt for the front-wheel drive Regal GS.
Technology has been bumped up, as the Regal will now be available with rear cross traffic alert, lane change alert, side blind zone alert, lane departure warning, forward collision alert and collision mitigation braking. As well, adaptive cruise control is now offered.
New front and rear styling, with the ever trendy wing-shape LED daytime running lamps and LED taillamps are featured on the 2014 Regal. Much of the styling carries over from the last generation, with the same large hood vents still present and accounted for.
Inside the interior features a redesigned central instrument panel and console along with some new interior trim combination. The General’s latest Intellilink infotainment system has also been included in the Regal for 2014.
