Re: 2017 Acadia! Here it is!

I've been waiting a long time for this......I love our Acadia (now used as second family around town vehicle as we bought a 15 Yukon) I'm a bit disappointed it's smaller, but I'll wait to see how functional the interior is in person. I think it looks fantastic in and out.

Looks nice. Interesting set of options. The "All Terrain" option opens the market to many who might consider moving from the Jeep world.

Re: 2017 Acadia! Here it is!

The exterior, interior, and tech are very good. VERY DISAPPOINTED with the smaller size, and lack of 8 speed transmission. Its 2016 and the only other manufacturer to only offer a 6speed in their redesigned mid-size crossover is Toyota in its Highlander (the Highlander usually finishes last in most comparisons because...........IT'S SMALLER DIMENSIONS!). The reason the Lambda sells so well is because of IT'S SIZE. They are a very good alternative to the body on frame full-size suv's like the Yukon/Tahoe in size. GM is clearly trying to widen the gap between their mid-size crossover and their full-size SUV, so they don't compete in sales! The smaller size alone will cause me not to buy it, and look for a good deal on a 2015 or a Honda Passport!

I really like it. The All Terrain package looks sharp. I guess I can finally trade my 07 in.

There are a few other GMC models for 2017 taking this body line on the rear window. The Canyon being one.

Just think, "Professional Grade" with an "Active Twin Clutch"!

It just doesn't get any better than that!!!!! Even a competitor with Symmetrical All Wheel Drive won't be able to compete!
