This kingly model is duly deserving of reverence and respect,
but it is also willing to do all the transporting duties
as well. For smaller families or just business associates,
the 2003 Buick Regal will take all comers and power them
effortlessly from point to point. Indeed, power is the operative
word for the 2003 Buick Regal. This is especially true with
respect to the GS model, which provides a supercharged engine
that puts it at the top of its class in terms of horsepower.
Attending all this power are a fair share of safety and
comfort features, as well as a sporty style that is fit
for next-generation royalty.
The 2003 Buick Regal is available in the aforementioned
GS model and a base LS model as well.
The 2003 Buick Regal is given the type of luxury features
that prompted its name. With the LS model, cruise control,
air conditioning with dual-zone manual climate control,
cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, 6-way power driver
seat, power mirrors, windows and door locks and remote keyless
entry are all part of the standard package. The GS adds
leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control,
an AM/FM/cassette/CD player, steering-wheel radio controls
and a trip computer.
For the fourth year, the Regal offers a special Joseph
Abboud package, inspired by the world-renown fashion designer.
The interiors of these models are given special club-style
front bucket seats with Rich Chestnut leather seating areas,
a leather-wrapped two-tone steering wheel and a Rich Chestnut
leather shifter boot. The Abboud signature emblems also
adorn the instrument panel, carpet savers and headrest.
The Abboud influence continues in the exterior design of
these special models, as the Abboud signature emblem is
found on the taillamps as well. In addition, the grille-mounted
Buick tri-shield and 16-inch aluminum wheels are made prominent.
The Buick Regal is no slouch on the road. The LS model is
equipped with a strong 3.8-liter Series II V6 engine with
200 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The
GS powers forth with a supercharged version of the Series
II V6. Capable of 240 horsepower, the mighty engine provides
280 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm. Estimated fuel economy
is 19 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway for
the LS and 18/28 (city/hwy) for the supercharged GS.
For added performance, the GS model is equipped with traction
control, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, and Gran Touring
Safety and Security
