GMC Acadia, anybody got one?

Recommended Posts

What do you think about the new Acadia?

It is supposedly able to tow 2500 Kg which is not bad I think. I just don't know what it can take as a vertical load on the hitch.

If you've never seat in one of them you should... it is the only vehicule of this size that I knowof in which you can seat 6 adults with that much comfort. It is an 8 passenger vehicle

Anybody got one?

Thanks

we got one in here... lasted 1 day. i plan on looking close at the next one that shows up. looked pretty cool. they do list a platform "style" hitch for one, not sure on rating. the battery is under the back seat.

thats about all i learned that day.

Looks like the Acadia and Saturn Outlook are twins that got different last names-same motors, look the same, etc.

The Saturn version, when equipped with the towing package, claims a towing capacity of 4500 lbs, so most likely, the tongue rating is 450 lbs, though it's not listed, 10% is a good rule.

I had the opportunity to try one at my GMC dealer in fact and it was cool.

Great interior finish.

The transmisison is great

Lots of space

The breaks have a tough look

The suspension and frame make it a pick-up - like ride

I was just curious to know if some of you guys had purchased one to have more details.

the Saturn Outlook is the same. I wonder if it was a GMC conception?

Thanks for any additional information

Outlook and Acadia are both on the same platform called Lambda, word has it there will also be a chevy in the future. Conception was "just" GM.

What is "Lambda". I have problems trying to undestand if it is a real frame or not. Looks like new frame technology... like the honda ridgeline. It makes me think of a bus-like frame.

Just to mention the Buick Enclave is also the same I think.

Where are these vehicles assembled?
