I suspect the 2020's will go for MSRP or close for a while.
Especially in the snow belt areas, where the Subaru cult runs strong. Here in New England, not only are there minimal deals, most dealerships can't get enough stock on the Outback, Forester, and Crosstrek.

In the winter, The Forester is the "I'd rather risk driving this today rather than my TourX" car.
In the summer it is the spare, spare, I don't care where I park it, need to remind myself just how good I have it" car.
I certainly do not hate it, but sure have a hard time feeling the love.

I was in VT last weekend and you would have a hard time finding a vehicle that was not a Subaru. My TourX really stood out.

I saw my first one of these in the flesh a few days ago. It's a looker, but I'd don't think I'd choose it over the V90 or E-Class wagon at that price segment. I see way too many late model Jags on flatbeds around here given how generally rare they are to see on the road.

I see many times more Teslas on the road than TourX. I see as many Tesla's as buicks period. Tesla's are very rare around Northern NH.
What is now really worrisome about the TourX is availability of repair parts in an auto accident.

Latest sad news:

I would not be surprised if GM Pulls the plug for the 2020 year on the Regal & TourX and fire sales any 2020 that may have been shipped to the USA already.
Me, I'd make a last ditch effort on a GS version with a nice interior, and try selling as a loss leader to Spread the Gospel, but realistically, I suspect the TourX/Regal, Opel Insignia, Holden, etc. is DOA. Sucks, I foresee another plant shutdown.

I see a ton of Enclaves and Encores around here and a few Envisions. The LaCrosse is a long time staple car as well, but I live in Heaven's waiting room of central Florida.

No Regal would be the end of any non SUV/CUV Buick. With the LaCrosse officially out of the picture there's a slim chance those buyers would cross shop the Regal, though they really aren't the same class of car and probably attract a different set of buyers. In any case, the long term picture for the Regal and TourX availability in North America doesn't look good.

GM is pushing me to Caddy again.. Chevy is not an option, and will not buy a Buick if vehicle is available as a GMC.
Was going to sell my 09 Pontiacs but may need to start driving them. If Caddy does not get a vehicle I like with their V8, and has option of driving itself...may be done buying big cars.
Even these vehicles can be driven by computer, if you do not want to drive yourself.20190809_085845.jpg
