The Buick Rainier shares its body shell and mechanical platform with GM’s other mid-size SUVs, the Chevrolet TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy. Rainier rides more smoothly than the other GM models, and it’s among the quietest SUVs we’ve driven. Rainier has a uniquely Buick style and a near-luxury sensibility. Yet it still seats five and boasts an engine powerful enough to pull a boat or horse trailer.
As with the GMC Envoy, however, choosing the Rainier over the corresponding Chevy may be mostly a matter of image. Just as the GMC badge stands for Serious Trucks, the Buick name has, for over a century now, meant arrival at a certain station in life, an achievement of an elevated socio-economic plateau.
Rainier’s six-cylinder engine delivering plenty of power, as we’ve seen in the GMC Envoy and Chevrolet Trailblazer. Called the Vortec 4200, it’s an inline-6, a classic design with inherent balance. The Vortec 4200 has been engineered to deliver power across a wide range of engine speeds, giving it responsive acceleration in all driving situations.
Buick Rainier’s strengths are its quiet, comfortable ride and powerful performance. The Rainier is a great vehicle for drivers who need the superior towing capacity or off-road ruggedness that a truck-based SUV can provide.
