Buick has just announced today the retail pricing for the 2011 Buick Regal.

You can view the 2011 Buick Regal up close and personal in this linked slideshow and this gallery of official General Motors imagery.

The initial model run, which will be built in Germany, will be higher end models.  Therefore the "starting" price will be $26,995 (which includes $750 destination charge) for a premium CXL model.  For comparison's sake, the LaCrosse CXL costs $30,395 and the Acura TSX runs $30,120 (with $810 destination).  For those opting for the turbo model, and why wouldn't you, the starting price is $29,495 with destination.

The 2011 Buick Regal was revealed in Hollywood and I was there to cover the action.  You can read all about it in Part One:  2011 Buick Regal live in Hollywood: Up close and personal and Part Two:  2011 Buick Regal going rogue? From the Autobahn with love. 

For those reading through to the end of this story, I have a tasty little morsel.  In chatting with a certain GM employee at the Detroit Auto Show, it was hinted that the Buick Regal GS concept will not be the only Regal variant that we will see.  What does that mean?  Could there be even more powerful models on tap?  I suggested that a station wagon model was being hinted at, but in fact while a wagon may be considered, that was not what this particular employee was suggesting.  I could not pry any more details from Buick staffers at the show, but stay tuned!
