X Games: 2018 Buick Regal TourX Tested!

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Buick last fielded a wagon 22 years ago: the V-8–powered, rear-drive Roadmaster Estate. Such models can usually be identified by the wood-grain vinyl covering most of their 18-foot-long sides and by the octogenarian behind the wheel.

TourX is Buick's 'way way back' Outback (video included)

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - One of my favorite cars is the green 1970 Buick Estate wagon, woodgrain and all, that co-starred in the movie, The Way Way Back. It's a classic America family car so familiar to Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers.

Buick Regal TourX shows the secret cool of station wagons

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The station wagon is the vinyl record of the car industry. Rare, purist, and extremely cool when you find one, which means they are primed for a comeback. So then it’s not shocking that the Buick Regal TourX I test drove stopped folks in New York traffic. It’s still an anomaly on public streets; GM told me only a few hundred have shipped. The first question everyone asked was, “What is it?”

The 2018 Buick Regal TourX Is A Return Of The Classic American Family Car

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The 2018 Buick Regal TourX is the long-roofed wagon version of the Regal sedan, which makes it the first Buick wagon since the ’96 Roadmaster. You can’t order it with wood paneling, but the TourX is a damn decent comeback of the classic American family car. It’s the American competitor to the the likes of the Audi A4 Allroad, the BMW 3 Series wagon, the Volvo V60 and the Subaru Outback, if you were wondering why the hell it exists.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - There’s nothing worse than plans that have gone belly up, but there we were, pulled over in the middle of rural Wyoming, with a ruptured intercooler and a gaping hole where the passenger-side headlight once was on our 2018 Buick Regal TourX, courtesy of a deer. What we’d planned to do was compare the new Regal wagon with America’s other mainstream wagons, the 2018 Subaru Outback 3.

2018 Buick Regal TourX First Test Review: Roadmaster Revisited

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Buick occupies an odd place in General Motors’ North American lineup. The brand can’t be mainstream because that’s Chevrolet’s job, and it can’t be the automaker’s luxury arm because that role is played by Cadillac.

Buick Thinks Half Of Regal Buyers Will Get The TourX—If They Don't Call It A Wagon

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Buick is pretty proud of the new 2019 Regal TourX wagon, which in addition to being quite handsome, seems like a really great value. Good news for wagons, too: the automaker predicts that up to 50 percent of Regal buyers will opt for the longroof instead of the sedan, as long as they don’t call it what it is.

Buick is Back: This All-New, American All-Wheel-Drive Wagon Costs $15,000 Less than an Audi Allroad

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - When the opportunity to go to Sedona, AZ to drive the all-new 201 Buick Regal TourX arose, there was no hesitation on my part. Of course, I did: I’m a wagon guy. If I was to be given any new car free of charge in perpetuity, it would be the mighty Audi RS6 Avant… or would it be the Mercedes E63 S AMG? Either way, it’d be a wagon — nothing beats the combination of style and function, at least when it’s done right. The new TourX is done right.
