2005 Buick Rainier

Enlarge Photo
Buick's version of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy was introduced for 2004 and remains the handsomest and most luxurious of its corporate cousins, with the most standard features. Newly available on all models for 2005 is the 290-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8 engine that was previously only available on short-wheelbase models. The standard engine is a 4.2-liter in-line six that generates 275 horses, and both engines can drive either the rear or all four wheels via a four-speed-automatic transmission. Buick's "QuietTuning" system is said to help reduce interior noise and vibrations. New for 2005 are wood-trimmed steering wheel rim, additional interior chrome accents, side-curtain air bags and an occupant-sensing system for the right-front passenger. As with Buick's upscale sedans, a host of systems, such as the power seats and mirrors, radio, door locks, lighting, and climate-control, can be personalized to suit multiple drivers' tastes.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
