2005 Buick Terraza Van Production Truck

The Buick Terraza, is the company's third entry in their growing truck portfolio, bringing Buick refinement into the growing premium end of the van segment.

With its ability to carry seven people, and plenty of cargo, the Terraza crossover sport van (CSV) complements Rendezvous and Rainier in the Buick truck lineup by combining SUV features with the functionality required by customers in the van segment. Like Rendezvous and Rainier, Terraza is expected to continue the trend of bringing new and younger customers into Buick showrooms. Terraza, will be available in entry level CX and uplevel CXL models, and is expected to attract the attention of affluent married couples with children.

The horsepower and torque of the overhead valve 3500, 3.5-liter, V-6 provide excellent launch feel and responsive performance at all driving speeds. Its estimated power ratings - 200 horsepower and 220 lb.-ft. of torque - are highly competitive with those of other vans.

The blend of SUV and van styling cues gives this new crossover sport van unusual exterior appearance.

The interior space is enhanced by wood trim and chrome highlights on the steering wheel, instrument panel and center control stack. Doorplates are also executed in dark burled wood with bright accents and the front doors feature chrome sill plates.
