1993 BUICK CALIFORNIA REGAL SEDAN INTRODUCED

 1993 BUICK CALIFORNIA REGAL SEDAN INTRODUCED
 FLINT, Mich., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Buick has introduced a limited-


edition California Regal sedan designed and equipped specifically for the competitive West Coast mid-size market.
 Standard features on the California Regal sedan include an enhanced version of the powerful 3800 V-6 engine, a special monochromatic exterior appearance and anti-lock brakes.
 The car, with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $17,499, is being marketed by California Buick dealers beginning Nov. 6.
 The new California sports sedan, based on extensive market research, builds on Buick's most changed model for 1993. All Regal sedans for the new model year feature an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission -- the same transmission that earlier won acclaim in Buick's flagship Park Avenue Ultra.
 The '93 Regal sedan has a more sculptured front appearance with the hood integrated with a new grille and headlamps. Taillamps and bumpers also have subtle changes.
 Winner of this year's J.D. Power award for the best car in its price range ($16,000-$22,000), the Regal sedan scored better than all foreign and domestic competition in its class.
 Replacing Regal's standard 3.1-liter V-6, the California Regal sedan features, as standard equipment, an enhanced version of the 3.8-liter 3800 V-6 with tuned port injection. Powerful and efficient, the 170- horsepower engine delivers 225 lb-ft of torque at 3200 rpm while delivering 19 miles per gallon in the city and 28 on the highway. The engine's advanced exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system is designed to meet California's tough standards for oxides of nitrogen emissions.
 California Regal sedans have a striking appearance with body color used on the grille, side moldings, door handles and outside rear-view mirror housings. Exterior colors are bright white, medium jadestone metallic and ruby red metallic. Interior colors are medium beige or medium gray leather.
 Other specific standard equipment on this model are 15-inch aluminum wheels, six-way power driver's seat, Concert Sound stereo speakers, a remote keyless entry system and dual heating and air-conditioning controls for driver and front-seat passenger.
 Additional standard features include AM-FM stereo cassette radio with power antenna, power remote outside rear-view mirrors, cruise control, power windows with driver's express down feature, power remote trunk release and rear window defogger.
 Only two options are available on the California Regal sedan -- Gran Touring suspension system with 16-inch aluminum wheels, and heavy-duty cooling for towing.
 Standard front bucket seats in the California Regal sedan are also new for 1993 on other selected Regal models. They are orthopedically contoured with the aid of computers to provide comfort for a wide range of drivers, short or tall, male or female.
 The front of the seat cushion has been rounded to relieve pressure on the backs of the legs on shorter drivers, while the backrest has been reshaped to provide better support for the lower back without pushing the shoulders uncomfortably forward.
