The American wagon is back, albeit in a form friendlier to today's car buyers.

It's meant to compete against the likes of the Audi Allroad and Volvo V60 Cross Country.

A 7-inch infotainment system is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Instead of just being a wagon, it's been lifted by an inch or so, and there's some additional body cladding on the lower portion.

It's like a fancy Subaru Outback, in that respect.

Apparently, all it takes to sell a wagon is a bit more ride height. Who knew?

Buick knew, which is why the TourX is the only Regal wagon to come to the US. There's a more traditional wagon variant in Europe, but it's not coming here.

All Regals come standard with an active hood that tilts up after detecting a collision to mitigate pedestrian injuries.

I Got an Early Look at Intel's Glass Packaging Tech for Faster Chips
Rahul Manepalli, right, Intel's module engineering leader, shows a glass substrate panel before it's sliced into the small rectangles that will be bonded to the undersides of hundreds of test processors. The technology, shown here at Intel's CH8 facility in Chandler, Arizona, stands to improve performance and power consumption of advanced processors arriving later this decade. Glass substrates should permit physically larger processors comprised of several small "chiplets" for AI and data center work, but Intel expects they'll trickle down to PCs, too.
