Exterior

Described by Buick as having a “refined ruggedness,” the Rendezvous has an overall shape like that of an SUV and is augmented by details that promote a youthful image. Sharp lines take precedence over curves, and Buick says the fastback rear slope is less boxy than a typical SUV’s back end.

Styling elements that are common on other Buicks, such as an oval-shaped grille that is painted rather than chrome trimmed, are evident on the Rendezvous. Chrome is used sparingly.

Eight-spoke 16-inch wheels are standard, and the new Ultra gets 10-spoke 17-inch wheels. Each Rendezvous rides a 112.2-inch wheelbase, measures 186.5 inches long overall and stands 68.9 inches tall.
