2007 Buick Terraza KBB Expert Review
Buick's Terraza minivan shares its platform with similar GM siblings at Saturn, Pontiac and Chevrolet. While the Terraza is arguably the most luxurious of the group, it can't match the Honda Odyssey or Chrysler Town and Country for interior room, nor does it offer the option of all-wheel drive like the Toyota Sienna. Where many minivans in this segment offer side-curtain airbags for all three rows, the Terraza does not. Despite these shortcomings, the Terraza has much to offer, such as the Sit-N-Lift Mobility Prep package and a powerful V6 engine that can run on either gasoline or E85.

If you need to buy a minivan, but would much rather own a Sport Utility Vehicle, the Terraza's long hood and bold grille might be enough to appease your anti-minivan attitude. And it offers an impressive list of standard and optional toys, including a PhatNoise mobile digital storage system.

If interior volume is a priority, the Terraza's narrow passenger compartment may not be ideally suited to your needs. The Terraza also lags behind in offering such features as flush-folding seats - although it does have an arrangement that allows a flush rear floor surface.
What's New for 2007
The 2007 Terraza losses its all-wheel-drive option but gains the 3.9-liter V6 as standard equipment for all trim levels. Later in the model year, a Flex Fuel E85 version will be made available.
The Terraza is powered by a 240-horsepower 3.9-liter V6 that pulls strongly off the line and is noticeably more refined than the previous 3.5-liter engine. The front-wheel-drive layout works well for this type of vehicle, providing good traction in rain and snow. Steering and braking have been greatly improved over the old General Motors Venture, Silhouette and Montana minivans on which the Terraza is based. The smaller size and narrow footprint make the Terraza feel easier to maneuver than the larger offerings from Nissan, Chrysler and Honda.
DVD Entertainment System
The optional DVD entertainment system keeps the kids busy while you drive.
PhatNoise Entertainment System
The optional PhatNoise entertainment system lets you download music and video from your home computer and bring it along for the ride.
The Terraza's interior represents a huge leap forward for Buick. Advanced soft-touch materials, a sophisticated look for the new switchgear and improved build quality make this one plush minivan. The Terraza's interior is a bit on the narrow side, and its flat-folding rear seats do not fold flush into the floor, raising the height of the cargo floor about four inches. But it does, however, provide a flat load floor and a handy cargo storage compartment.
The Terraza looks like no other minivan (outside of its GM cousins) on the market today. Though it looks new, the Terraza actually uses the old GM minivan platform with a new front end to give it a more truck-like appearance. Buick has added a visible pillar behind the sliding side doors on each side to increase the Terraza's SUV-like appearance.
Notable Standard Equipment
The base CX model has manual air conditioning, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), front and rear cup holders, power locks, power windows, keyless entry, automatic headlamps, OnStar, AM/FM stereo with CD and MP3 capability, dual-heated power mirrors, cruise control, StabiliTrak, traction control, rear wiper/washer and full wheel covers. The CX PLUS adds dual-zone manual air conditioning, DVD entertainment system, automatic leveling and six-way power driver seat. The CXL adds automatic front and rear air conditioning, power right-hand sliding side door, removable overhead console storage, leather seats, rear-seat audio controls, first and second-row side-impact airbags, eight-way power driver's seat and steering wheel touch controls.
Notable Optional Equipment
Options include rear park assist, six-disc CD changer, Mobility Prep Package, PhatNoise hard-drive entertainment system, remote start, six-way power passenger seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats and a trailer towing package.
Under the Hood
The new 3.9-liter V6 employs variable valve timing and lift, promoting maximum torque and horsepower without sacrificing fuel economy. With an output of 240 horsepower, the Terraza moves from the back of the minivan pack to near the head of the class.
240 horsepower @ 6000 rpm
240 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4800 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 13/18 (E85), 18/25 (Gasoline)
Nicely equipped, the base CX model has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $27,275, the CX PLUS is $28,615 and the luxurious CXL has an MSRP of $31,395. A look at the Fair Purchase Price shows the typical transaction price being paid for the Terraza in your area, so be sure to check it out before you begin negotiations. As for resale, the Terraza is projected to hold lower-than-average residual values, on par with the Ford Freestar, a few percentage points below the Chrysler Town and Country Limited and well below the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.
