Sad but predictable: All Buick Regal models, including the TourX wagon, are dead in the U.S. after 202012/05/2019
We hate to see these cars go; each was a very solid offering, and the TourX in particular received a surprising amount of attention whenever we drove it. And for the enthusiast crowd, the in-betweener Encore GX crossover will hardly seem like a good tradeoff for the Regals. But enthusiasts, let’s be honest here, make up a tiny percentage of the new-vehicle market. And everybody else apparently wants a crossover.
That all Regals are, effectively, Opels didn’t help their case; GM sold the German automaker to PSA in 2017, complicating ongoing badge-engineering efforts. Basically, the clock was ticking on these models, with Opel agreeing to build Buicks only through 2019. So all in all, we’re not exactly surprised by this move.
Buick has not confirmed a stop date for Regal production, but a spokesman said vehicles should be in stock at dealerships at least through mid-2020.
