Two more pieces of the nine-model product makeover from Buick and GMC are coming more into focus. Our spy shooters recently managed to capture the 2014 Buick LaCrosse (above) and 2014 Regal (at right) out testing, and it looks like General Motors has big things in store for both models. Based on these images, it looks like we might be seeing the redesigned LaCrosse before we see the refreshed Regal, and we wouldn't be too surprised for one of them making a debut at the Shanghai Motor Show at the end of April.
Although this LaCrosse is heavily disguised (in a stylish new camouflage pattern, we note), we've already seen the car completely uncovered in China. While the plaid covering does its job obscuring some of the car's details, we can still see that some of the elements match up with the spy shots from last month including the larger grille, the LED accents in the headlights and the reshaped exhaust outlets. Not obvious in the new spy shots is the fact that the LaCrosse's cabin is getting a major overhaul.
As for the facelifted Regal, we can definitely tell that a restyled front end will bring new headlights and fascia, but it looks like the big changes will be taking place at the rear of the sedan. What's interesting is that while we can tell the base Regal models are getting new headlights and fascias, it doesn't appear, from these pictures, that the same changes will be applying to the face of the sportier Regal GS. Judging by the amount of fabric piled on top of the instrument panel, the Regal is likely to get some interior upgrades as well.
