Looks Beautiful With All High Way Mileage. by bhartsel6045

2007 Buick Rainier

The 2007 Buick Rainier is basically a carryover from the previous year and only gets two new standard features -- a tire pressure monitor, and a one-year subscription to OnStars Turn by Turn directions.  Regular OnStar is already standard.  The lack of updates is a signal that 2007 will be the last year for the SUV.
The mid-size SUV, which shares a platform and engine with the Trailblazer and Envoy (the 4.2-liter, 191-hp V6) is unique in that it also offers an optional 5.3-liter, 302-hp V8.  The other SUVs only have the V8 in extended wheelbase models, not in their regular trucks.  A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission available.  The 2007 Rainier is available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, though the latter is recommended more for tough road conditions rather than for off-roading.  
In accordance with Buick's reputation for elegance, the 2007 Rainier tries to position itself as a more luxurious offering than Chevy or GMC.  Leather seats and faux wood and chrome trim are standard.  OnStar, dual climate control, ABS brakes, dual front airbags, and audio controls on the steering wheel are just a few niceties that are included.  Heated seats, a navigation system, and DVD player are popular options.  The mid-size SUV only seats five in two rows of seats, but the back seats feature a 60/40 split-fold for more cargo space.  
The huge amount of room and a remarkably quiet ride are some highlights of the 2007 Rainier, according to owners.  Handling and cornering are more like a car, acceleration is immediate, and the V8 provides a lot of smooth power.  Towing capacity is about 6500 pounds.  Negatives focus on the terrible gas mileage (to be expected), cupholders that are too small to be useful, cheap-looking plastic parts, and the lack of a running board to compensate for the high step-in.  2007 will be the last year for the Rainier, which is being replaced by the crossover Enclave.
