Damn you guys figured that one out quick. Yep it's a 2018 Buick Regal TourX, Preferred trim, with the upgraded tech package, in the best color of course (rioja red metallic). You don't see a lot of them because they don't sell well, which is why I got a brand new 2018 MY for nearly $10k off sticker. Probably could have negotiated for a better deal but I suck at that kind of thing lol. It compliments the FRS pretty well. Competent handling, torquey engine, good quiet ride, more space than I know what to do with.

Yep love the color, although it does also come in Sport Red (or as I would call it "fire chief red"). I'd have to go with that.

It does not have a hitch.
They are very heavily advertised up here. Usually involves somebody saying "we will take my Buick" and when the other person heads towards an old dumpy sedan they say "no not that Buick this one" at which point the other person stops and stares in disbelief and then argues that there is no way that is a Buick.

Some of the current/near future Buicks don't look bad at all. Although I'm not sure if that's because the cars look good, or because I'm closer to 40 than I am 30.

Yep, that's a sure sign you're heading into - Buick territory -


The older I get, the better our old family sedan seems to "fit" me -
