2011 Buick Regal

Buick is in the midst of reinventing itself as a brand, and while there are only four Buick models on sale at present, the company will be looking to expand the lineup.

In fact, we already know that a baby crossover SUV and compact sedan are on the way. But what else might Buick have in store for the near future?

Well, we know that the sporty Regal GS is a go. We also suspect that a Regal wagon could be a possibility. The future of a Regal coupe is in doubt, however.

The compact sedan will be dubbed the 2012 Buick Verano, and it will be built in either Michigan or Ohio. The upcoming compact crossover SUV will be launched as a 2013 model and be called the Encore. Meanwhile, the Enclave will be receive a facelift and get a smaller engine: A 3.0-liter V-6.

The Lucerne sedan is unlikely to survive beyond 2011.
