    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...

      Well the inevitable finally happened, Buick has confirmed that the Regal will not be returning to the U.S. after the 2020 model year. After that, Buick will be an all-SUV brand.  The move comes as light-truck sales take 70% of the U.S. market and 90% of all Buick sales.  While the Regal retreats from these shores, it will still continue to be sold in China where demand remains strong. 
      As of the end of Q3 this year, Buick moved only 8,849 units of Regal year to date. That's down 19.6% from the year prior. Regal's demise was hinted at during the Los Angeles Auto Show where no Regals were on display.
      The Buick Lacrosse sedan and Buick Cascada convertible were canceled earlier this year.
      Starting next year, the Buick Encore GX will join the lineup, a slightly larger iteration of the Buick Encore, but on a new platform and using a new 3-cylinder engine.

    • Correct; 2.7L. Ram's V6 e-torque adds 12 HP and 39 TRQ. I added that much [15/35] to my old F-150 300 I-6 via a chip and I can attest from experience; you cannot discern that little of a power bump. Ie-Torque also ADDS 105 lbs, lessening the benefit. Besides, the Ram e-torque 3.6 still has less HP & TRQ than the Chevy 2.7T  [305/269 vs. 310/348]. Hell, the Ram is no better than the Chevy 4.3 V6 [285/305]. Know what I think? People should buy the 5.3L [355/383].
    • They have a 2.7L in a pickup.  I actually applaud the 310 hp from that engine and it makes more torque than the 3.6 V6.   They need more of that, but that engine should be hooked up to a mild hybrid system like how Ram has e-torque.
    • I can tell you that in Jersey, which has relatively low gas prices vs. other states, diesel has not been cheaper than gas since maybe '04. Prior to, it was historically cheaper. I know; I bought a diesel truck in '06 and I've logged every tank - diesel has not been cheaper than gas since...
