Buick Regal Station Wagon Set To Debut In 2018

While Europe never lost their love for the station wagon, it seems folks in the US cooled off on the idea, preferring instead the increasingly ubiquitous crossover. But that doesn’t mean the flame has become completely snuffed out here. In fact, there are more than a few people very excited about the upcoming Buick Regal Station Wagon.

 

So far, there is little news on this new entry from Buick. AutoGuide reports that based on a patent filing, the option for AWD on the new Buick Regal station wagon is likely.

 

Buick is no stranger to the format. There was a time when “Woodies,” as they were lovingly called, adorned with the side wood-paneling from which they got their nickname, were all over America’s roads. Officially called the Buick Sport Wagon, these iconic wagons were manufactured from the late 60s into the early 70s.

 

There will be no wood paneling this time around but the new wagon will still offer what the “Woodies” of yore did. That is, they will be the perfect answer to someone who wants something that drives like a car (like a luxurious and powerful Buick, mind you) but offers lots more interior space. The Buick Regal station wagon is set to premier in 2018.
