2005 Buick Terraza

2005 Buick Terraza

Review continues below
Brand new for 2005, the Terraza minivan is being called a "crossover sport van," sporting more-aggressive styling and a slightly higher ride height than the typical people mover for those buyers who might otherwise distain driving a "mom mobile." It shares platforms and components with the Chevrolet Uplander, Pontiac Montana SV-6, and Saturn Relay. Plush and coming well-equipped, Terraza gives General Motors its first minivan to compete in the growing number of models selling for over $30,000, and allows it to go head-to-head with the Chrysler Town & Country. While it can hold its own with much of the competition, neither the Terraza nor its badge-engineered brethren break much in the way of new ground. Its 3.5-liter V-6 engine generates an adequate 200 horsepower and is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel-disc brakes are standard, and its suspension benefits from self-leveling rear shock absorbers and large 17-inch wheels and tires. GM's Versatrak stability control system is offered on front-drive models, and buyers can opt for all-wheel-drive for added roadholding ability. Leather seating for seven passengers with first- and second-row captain's chairs are among the vehicle's many standard features. A 50/50-split rear seat folds flat into the floor, and while some of the Terraza's competitors are offering second row seats that likewise fold away when not needed, here the second row seats must be physically removed. Front side airbags for front-seat passengers are optional, as is a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
