Buick will adopt a version of the outgoing Bravada from Oldsmobile. Rainier will eventually be offered with a V8. (Only the long-wheelbase Trailblazer EXT and Envoy XL have a V8 today).

What Changed:

Buick adds a version of the Trailblazer/Envoy called the Rainier. Buick looks for extra quiet ride and a standard 5.3L V-8 to differentiate the Rainier from other offerings.
