    Report Says 2018 Buick Regal TourX Will Begin At $29,995

      Good luck trying to find that base TourX

    Buick is hoping to give the likes the Subaru Outback, Audi A4 Allroad, and Volvo V60 Cross Country a run for their money with the Regal TourX goes on sale later this year. According to a new report from CarsDirect, the TourX could be undercutting some of the competition by a significant margin.

    The base 2018 Buick Regal TourX 1SV will begin at $29,995 with destination. The model will come equipped with 18-inch aluminum wheels, active noise cancellation, push-button start, heated side mirrors, a universal home remote, and more. Good luck trying to find a 1SV at your dealer. This is the model that dealers will use in ads to try and draw buyers in. Also, they will only have a small number of them in stock.

    What you're more likely to see at your Buick dealer is the TourX Preferred 1SB which adds an auto-dimming mirror, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power driver's seat with lumbar support, and more. The Preferred also gets a wider color palate than the 1SV. Pricing begins at $33,575.

    Topping the range will be the TourX Essence 1SL. This model comes with leather, 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility; and dual-zone climate control. The Essence will set you back $35,945.

    All Regal TourXs will come with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with 250 horsepower, eight-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive.

    Nice, I like these packages, while it would be nice to easily find the base model, I have to agree with the writeup that most will be mid or top end level.$35K is not bad for the Top of the line.

    I Iike it but there should not be any black plastic trim outside for $35K. I feel that is a big mistake on Buicks part.

    Pricing seems right, it is priced below Envision but it like a class above in terms of size.  I don't think it will sell much though just because wagons struggle.

    Still nice to have choices though. I still like the Golf Alltrack better....

    I would probably prefer the Envision over the Regal TourX if the former was not smaller than the XT5 or Equinox/Terrain.  Then again, if I wanted this model, I would simply go top of the line and keep it for several years.  I do hope that this model sells well, despite the fact that crossovers are nowadays the best sellers.

    Seems like Albert has taken a liking to the Sportback as much as I might want the TourX. Neither is a bad choice though.

    Ahh....the joys of car shopping with a significant other.  Now that she has the Beetle, my wife is very content with the idea of getting rid of the cooper in a couple of years when our daughter is out of high school and replacing it with a Miata.

    I will be interested to see how you and Albert evolve your fleet...

    We're going to get one large crossover or SUV and one medium to large sedan.  I'm listing one of my rental properties for sale and nothing will happen until after that is gone.

    Let's see if its gets any traction.  The Dodge Magnum and the CTS Wagon were short-lived. 

    And both of those were great cars (save for the 2.7L Magnum which was a pile of dog s***).

    The Buick has a better chance of surviving because China.

    It will continue for at least this generation in Europe as the Insignia too.

    I have no doubt about it succeeding overseas. The US, however, is another matter entirely.

    I can see it being a low volume niche model.

    If I were a betting man, I would bet that once this version of the Regal is done, production is moved to China. The 2018 Regal goes back to its European roots by being built in Rüsselsheim again... making the Regal more German than a BMW X5. 

    Envision has already shown that Americans don't care about a vehicle being assembled in China (and likewise, the Encore in Korea).  The Regal is one of Buick's best sellers in China so it would make sense, once the Opel link is severed, for the Chinese to build it and the US gets the excess production.  Buick sells more than 4 Regals in China for every 1 Regal sold in the US. 

    If I were Mary Barra, that's what I would do.

    It would be rational.

    That being said, i would not buy a Chinese made Buick.

    As long as North America continues to build my full size SUVs, I could care less about where everything else is produced. :P

    :roflmao: Come on Horse, I gave you a perfect opening to pummel me and make some sarcastic remark! :D 

    Like you I would love to have everything produced here in the US. But with a Global economy, that will never happen. So some lite humor and a focus on what can be done, buy as much US made product as possible to support my fellow citizen, then move onto best quality built products from around the world. :)

    For me it is a human rights issue and not a globalism issue.

    Looking at planers for my woodworking shop right now, not sure I can find an American tool to do exactly what I want....trying to find one made in Taiwan rather than China if I buy new.

    Personally, I think we need to have a revitalization of American entrepreneurship...more than laws or import quotas...we need American innovation...

    ...and we need American laws to protect the intellectual property rights of American companies from being stolen by Chinese companies.

    I get your message and why I only buy Weathertech floor mats. 

    Weathertech web site

    This company which had plants in UK and China brought everything back to the US to make sure his neighbors and others that wanted American Made products had them plus making sure kids were not working and building them in China or the workers being abused. The whole story is on their web site, but when the partial owner bought the whole company and reviewed everything, I feel he did the right thing and now he has a growing company that those in the know respect and use.

    ....ohhh yeah....

    Like I said...I love it when American companies are really ethical and do the right thing!

    Plus they are killer mats...we have them in all of our vehicles at work....they are better quality than anything else made.

    Even if you were ISIS and just wanting to keep sand out of your Toyota truck before it got blown to paradise and back by the Kurds or the Iranians, Weather tech mats would be a stylish and long lasting (longer than the about to be obliterated Tacoma) choice.

    They would also insulate your knees better than those cheap Chinese copies when you pray five times a day in the hot desert sun...

      The crossover fever has really hit Buick as they claim "almost 90 percent of U.S." sales come from their utility lineup. So why not add another crossover to their lineup?
      Buick announced today the Encore GX which will go on sale early next year. Coming from China, the model will slot between the Encore and Envision. Not many details were provided aside from the cargo space being " almost 5 cubic feet larger than the Encore and about 3 cubic feet smaller than the Envision."
      Car and Driver reports that the GX will have a slightly more powerful turbo-four when compared to the Encore; automatic transmission, and the choice of either front or all-wheel drive.
      “As we look to the future of Buick, the Encore GX positions us strongly as a consideration for those who want to purchase small or compact SUVs,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC.
      More details are expected as the we get closer to the launch.

      2020 Buick Encore GX Expands Brand’s SUV Family
      All-new model will strengthen Buick’s position in the most popular vehicle segments DETROIT — When the Encore GX arrives in early 2020, Buick will offer four premium SUVs across the three segments customers are shopping in most: small, compact and midsize. The Encore GX will be positioned between the smaller Encore and the larger Envision and Enclave models. It will offer new standard safety technologies* and its style and functionality will be just right for many of today’s buyers.
      “As we look to the future of Buick, the Encore GX positions us strongly as a consideration for those who want to purchase small or compact SUVs,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC.
      Today, almost 90 percent of U.S. Buick sales come from SUVs.
      The Encore GX’s new standard safety and driver assistance features* will include Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It will also offer the Enclave’s innovative Rear Camera Mirror, which provides a wide, less obstructed rear view while parking and driving, and High Definition Surround Vision camera system.
      Its spirited and efficient performance will be paired with a purposefully designed cargo space that’s almost 5 cubic feet larger than the Encore and about 3 cubic feet smaller than the Envision.
      Product specifications and pricing will be announced when the Encore GX begins arriving at U.S. dealers.

      Buick is reportedly working on a crossover coupe to add to its lineup in the US.  This vehicle would be in addition to, rather than replace, any vehicles in the current lineup. 
      Most of Buick's recent lineup has been a rebadge of some other brand's designs, this new vehicle would be a departure from that with Buick leading the design process from the start. CarDesignNews was shown some sketches and models of future Buicks and what they saw would "turn everything you think about Buick on its ear".  It is a bold design that will shock people both inside and outside the industry.  The designs would feel familiar without using specific cues. 
      Buick also took the time to insist that Buick would not become a China-only brand even though 4 out of every 5 Buicks are sold there. The bulk of the design work takes place in Warren, Michigan, while smaller design teams work in Shanghai, Melbourne, and near Seoul. 
      As far as the name, Buick has trademarked Enspire for the U.S., so that has a strong possibility of coming to fruition. No timeline is set for the release of the new crossover, but the overhaul of the Buick look is well underway.
