2003 Buick Rendezvous - Price Quote

Visit Buick for more information on the Buick Rendezvous.

Buick's entry in the SUV segment is not really a sport-utility vehicle at all. To clarify this, the 2003 Buick Rendezvous can best be described as a cross between an SUV, a minivan and a sedan. Customers enjoy the raised seating, available all-wheel drive and cargo-carrying capability of an SUV but with the great ride, outstanding fuel economy, easy step-in height and transporting capabilities of a minivan. Former premium sedan owners will enjoy the touches of luxury they are used to, but get much more flexibility for passengers and cargo.

Available Models
The 2003 Buick Rendezvous is available in a base CX model and an uplevel CXL model.

Interior Features
Up to seven people will find a near excess in comfort inside the 2003 Buick Rendezvous. Perfect for families, the Rendezvous is decked out with the type of roominess all parents will love. With the second row removed and third-row seats folded down, the 2003 Buick Rendezvous offers a class-leading cargo space of 108.9 cubic feet. For standard features, the base CX has everything that you need, while the CXL adds on the OnStar system, dual-zone manual climate control, leather upholstery, 6-way power front seats, an AM/FM/cassette/CD player, rear radio controls and more.

For entertainment, the 2003 Buick Rendezvous has an impressive selection of options to choose from. XM Satellite Radio is a feature whose 100 coast-to-coast digital radio channels keep the music going no matter where you find yourself, while a DVD entertainment system does exactly what one would expect.

Exterior Features
The unique construction of the Rendezvous translates into a incomparable style. Manufacturers have given the crossover vehicle an aerodynamic form that cuts through wind as it powers down the road.

The Rendezvous is equipped with an engine that is more than powerful enough to handle the weight compiled by both passengers and cargo. All models are given the same 3.4-liter V6 that puts out 185 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. 4-speed automatic transmission takes care of the shifting with ease. For a larger vehicle, the Rendezvous also offers a good fuel rating of 19/26 mpg (city/hwy).

Customers can step up the performance level with a number of optional features. Most prominent among the options is GM's Versatrak all-wheel drive system. Versatrak uses front drive under normal road conditions and adds torque to the rear wheels on slippery surfaces, giving the Rendezvous exceptional handling.

Safety and Security
With the all-wheel drive, Rendezvous gets additional front side airbags and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, adding to the dual front airbags and upgrading the standard 4-wheel disc brakes.
