ReviewWe have taken the Rainier on two long trips and are impressed by Buick's version of the Trailblazer/Envoy/Bravada. It is a worthy addition to the GM line that provides a great balance between pampering and practicality. This is the third vehicle I've owned with an in- line six. Why aren't they available in more models? GM needs to put this engine in a Buick sedan with a Continuously Variable transmission (CVT) for the ultimate in smoothness and power combination before the internal combustion engines are phased out completely.
Best FeaturesThe attention to detail is evident. The time spent in Ergonomics paid big dividends. For example the exterior lights can be set to provide perimeter lighting upon exit which is very useful.
Worst FeaturesAdd a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) option.
