The Buick GL8 is a minivan sold by General Motors' Buick division in China. Released in 2000, the GL8 is essentially a rebadged Pontiac Montana. Many people tend to think the Buick Terraza was Buick's first minivan, since the GL8 is exclusively sold in the Chinese market. It was redesigned for 2005; however, it has a more aerodynamic and futuristic look than its American counterparts, the Buick Terraza, the Chevrolet Uplander, the Pontiac Montana, and the Saturn Relay.
