About Buick Rainier
The Rainier was introduced on July 28, 2003 for the 2004 model year, in a 5-door, 5-passenger configuration, yet was one of only five GMT360 SUVs to offer a V8 engine — along with the GMC Envoy Denali, Isuzu Ascender EXT, Saab 9-7X 5.3i and Aero, and Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT (optional) and SS. Both rear and all-wheel drive models were offered. An upscale CXL trim added a better Bose stereo and XM Satellite Radio. For the 2004 model year only, there was a CXL Plus trim level with a touchscreen navigation system.
Buick also debuted the QuietTuning sound insulation on the Rainier, where a vehicle’s sound dampening featured triple door seals, acoustic laminate glass, and thicker sound-absorbing pads on the hood and firewall.
The Rainier was discontinued after the 2007 model year and was replaced by the Buick Enclave in 2008. GM would end production of the related Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, and Saab 9-7X after the 2009 model year. The last of those three, a white GMC Envoy rolled off the line on December 23, 2008, when the Moraine plant closed.
