Kool, keep that info coming man! :D

I thought they were all (sport vans) getting the 3.9...... :rolleyes:

Maybe we'll get a supercharged version just to be able to have SOMETHING in the lineup to one-up the Honda, etc.....
Knowing Buick and the Rendezvous, an "Ultra" model with the new 3.6L DOHC engine might make sense, with a 3.5 as the base. Yeah, I'll bet on that. But the Ultra will get launced like a year or so later to re-advertise the vans, and the Auto Critics will say "This is the sport van Buick should have launched the first time around" :)

Something cool:

A 3.5L engine and Versatrak.......Pontiac G6 anyone? Nah, that would be hoping for too much...

Ming Blue
They've got my color! :woot2:

What are you guys talking about? Ming blue who? :huh: :woot2: ;)
His name is Ming, and a color choice for the Terraza is Ming Blue. This van looks promising, but more power is definitely needed. GM Vans took 2% of market interest last year at Edmunds.com (That is including the Astro, and Safari). 1% for Midvans and 1% for minivans...kinda pathetic.... <_<

Ummm I think the 3.5L is the base engine, just like how it says 6L LS2 for the Corvette. No one complained about lack of power with the Vette because we know it's getting the LS7 also, so before you guys complain about lack of power remeber the 3.5L is base.

I have heard it is going to be a Olds. Shillute (sp?) with the Rendzous rear-end and Rainier front.. <_<
Nothing puts the "Sport" in Sport Van like a nose job!

And the extra sporty "oomph" of the same engine as the Malibu sedan for a vehicle that probably weighs 1000 more pounds!

Rockin! :bounce:

You can see a picture of it and the Saturn Relay in this months AMI Auto World magazine. They are small pictures but GM released them and said the Chevy and Pontiac versions won't be seen until the January auto show in Detroit.

The grille on the Buick is not much different from what you see on the Rendez. The rest of it looked prettymuch as they do now IMO.

No interior picutres though. :(

I thought about this again and I'm being too harsh.

If GM intends to add a supercharged version of the 3.5 on the up-level models, then this could work.

And it's much better than if they had stuck with the 3.4, like in the Equinox.

Separated at birth (grill):
