No Lambda information as of yet, though its clear Encalve rollout is forthcoming as Buick seems to be winding down its sole surviving U-body crossover, elminating most of the Rendezvous' trim levels and coalescing their equipment into two models. Rainier also sees tepid changes.

Why would they add a base Terraza? If they want it to be a luxury minivan, they shouldn't be decontenting it, but rather adding features and not increasing the price much (or at all). Let Chevy, Saturn, and Pontiac handle the bottom-feeders.

I wanna know why they are deleting AWD from everything? Seems to me they'd want the extra end-models to be the most loaded and therefore most desireable. With a new vehicle rolling out...who's going to want to drive the Wal*Mart special?

Why even bother with Terraza? Nobody seems to buy them. I have yet to see one on the road. I've only seen 1 relay and 3 Uplanders, no Monatanas either. Seems like a waist of time and money to me. They should just stop making the vans.

Dumb! Dumb! Dumb! What were they thinking? Why did Buick keep the weak, dated 3500 V-6 and ditch the 3.6-liter HF V-6? The Cashmere Gold (which I still can't seem to mix when coloring the cars/trucks I draw) is a loss too-that Gold Mist pales in comparison, but the other colors look nice.

My guess is because they want to keep the 3.6L readily available for all of the Enclave sales they'll be getting, as well as to further differentiate it from the Rendezvous (which in my opinion, there's no comparison).
