It can be found here. I even saw the "making of" of the commercial on TSN, the welfare version of ESPN in Canada. I think it's pretty darn cool and ingenius by the marketing folks at Buick to have come up with a commercial like this with Tiger in it.

Rainier's set to come out this fall. The styling is horrible on it, but not as bad as the Rendezvous. The numbers are not too bad. Inline6 w/275HP, 275lb-ft of [email protected] or a V8 w/290HP, 330lb-ft of torque. Only 4 speed though, not 5 and looks like the AWD will be an option, not std but looks to have skid control, but not sure

Couldn't help though, as I was watching the segment on TSN how if I won one of those, I'd just turn around and sell it and get a Pilot :D The segment I saw on TSN said that the car's $40,000CDN.

Thank you for posting that Riprock--it absolutely made my day!!
What a great concept for an ad and a woman won the car to boot!
How about Tiger making that shot with his club upside down??!
Anyway, my thought on the Rainier is that it is great looking--from the back I think it looks alot like the Pilot and from the front, I think it looks alot like a Lincoln Navigator. Just out of curiousity, where does the Rendezvous fit into Buick's car line-up now that the Rainier is coming out?

Judging by the price tag, right below Rainier?

Buick Rainier

The new Buick is yet another disguised trailblazer. So far theres the trailblazer, envoy, rainier, and isuzu something or other.
All the same platform/parts bin.

Yikes, the grille on the Ranier. C'mon Buick. The rest of it looks pretty decent.

H3 coming in 2005 (??) will also be based on this

Didn't like the Rainier that much... looks like... well... a Buick. Pilot much better looking...IMHO

I read that the H3 will be based on the Chevy Colorado mid-sized truck. Is this really going to be based on the Trailblazer too?

Man, if any of the above is true, that will be one pathetically bastardized version of the real Hummer. Those guys at GM really need to get some head.....oops, I meant, some brain :2:
