Although Buick called it the Regal Grand National when it arrived in 1982, it soon became known simply as the Grand National, the name that would establish its persona in the marketplace. To satisfy this urge Buick resurrected turbocharging in 1978 on its well proved pushrod V-6. Buick introduced the Regal Grand National in February 1982 at Daytona Beach, Florida, an appropriate venue for a car named after a stock car racing series. The Regal had been introduced in 1978, the year General Motors returned to turbocharging in its Regal and Le Sabre Sport Coupe. It was clearly meant to capitalize on the Buick Regal&rsquo. Two 1970s energy crises changed that, and while smaller, more economical engines became the norm, drivers still wanted V-8 power. But big V-8 engines were the simplest route to high performance in those days of cheap gasoline so the sophistication of the turbo soon passed from the scene.
Says the sedans will be launched in 2015 and ride on the Alpha rear-wheel drive that currently underpins the Cadillac ATS . Unsurprisingly, the Grand National is expected to be offered with a variety of ATS-sourced engines including a turbocharged 2. 6-liter V6 that develops approximately 400 bhp (298 kW). Automatic and manual transmissions are expected as well as a possible all-wheel drive system. 0-liter four-cylinder that develops 272 bhp (203 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque as well as a 3. 6-liter V6 that churns out 321 bhp (239 kW) and 274 lb-ft (371 Nm) of torque.
