also something as simple as trans programming and calibrations can affect this, modern cars have a issue with transmissions shifting on point and those extra miliseconds and time spent not reacting to an input can trash a 0-60. For example. if im driving my gmas jeep cherokee(piece of shit) 2017 model, in sport mode, from dead stop, I would bet its sub 6 seconds, but in the same situation, at a random time, I could probably have almost a second delay before the thing even registers youre pressing the pedal and then it may even just slip and hesitate once it has realized this.I always take 0-60 times with a grain of salt as different testers will get different numbers. But where does zero60times.com get their numbers from? Probably just pulling from magazines and other websites. So one year they pulled from Car and Driver and one year from who knows where. Car and Driver tends to have a little quicker 0-60 times....maybe they do their tests more aggressively?
Also, I've seen 6.5 to 6.7sec posted for my 2020 Traverse. The Regal is noticeably faster so a sub 6.0 sec 0-60 seems reasonable.
That time would be significantly worse, in my experience.
