This article discusses the American automaker Buick and a few of its leading models, such as the LaCrosse, Rendezvous, and Rainier!
Buick was established in a small town in Michigan when David Buick teamed up with engineer Walter Marr in 1903. The early years were rocky, but Buick recovered from near-bankruptcy in 1904 to become the top producer of automobiles in 1908. Today's 3.8-liter 3800 V6 is an outgrowth of the Buick V-6 of 1962 - the first V-6 ever offered in a widely-produced American car. Buick offers V-6 engines in most of its models, including a supercharged 3800 in the flagship Park Avenue Ultra.
Buick's 4-door, 6-passenger luxury LaCrosse sedan is among its most popular. There are 3 models of this vehicle, but the standard is the LaCrosse CX, which is equipped with a standard 3.8-liter, V6, 200-horsepower engine that achieves 20-mpg in the city and 29-mpg on the highway.
Rendezvous and Rainier:
Buick's newest SUV's in 2005 were the Rendezvous and the Rainier. The Rendezvous is an equal mix of van, sedan, and wagon; though it traditionally seats five, the optional third-row allows two additional passengers. Additionally, Rendezvous has a passenger-sensing system for the right front seat, which turns off the corresponding airbag when it detects small occupants. The Rainier has smoother style and performance than a lot of the other GM models. It offers a 300-horsepower V8 and starts at $30,000.
