2004 Buick Rainier CXL Plus AWD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
I drove the 6 cyl and then the 8 cyl
back to back on test drives. WOW!
What a difference. The V8 only gives
you 15 more HP and 50 lbs/ft torque but
it drives like a whole different
vehicle. I needed the V8 to tow our
5200 lb travel trailer and it does well
towing it.(with Weight Dist. Hitch)
The Rainer does it as well as the
Silverado I traded in.
Being able to have just the seat back
heated, the comfy seats on a long trip,
If I am only going to get 14 mpg around
town give me a bigger gas tank.
