2007 Buick Rainier Review
Exploring the backwaters of Nubia.? Offroading in the Outback? Climbing into the foothills of the Himalayas? Lots of SUVs use exotic locations to prove their prowess. Buick designed Rainier for a more demanding scenario: trekking through the landscape of 21st century America. So Rainier has the size and strength to easily haul a face cord of firewood or tow the family ski boat. But it also has a smooth controlled ride to help you navigate pothole filled urban pavement. A luxuriously refined interior with leather-appointed seats to make the trip to the cottage a pleasure. And a peaceful quiet-tuned cabin to make anything from a freeway jam-up to being passed by a motorcycle gang a lot less stressful. Rainier’s available V8 generates 302 horse power and 330 pound feet of torque. The kind of power to haul heavy loads and still have plenty in reserve for passing. Active Fuel Management technology allows this V8 to run on all eight cylinders for maximum power when it’s needed—or on just four cylinders for improved fuel economy when V8 power isn’t required. If you’re not planning a foray into the Himalayas Rainier could well be the premium SUV that’s precisely right for you.
