Acadia SL vs SLE or SLT

I noticed in the advertisining for the cheapie lease that the model is referred to as just an SL. Is this a de-contented version of the SLE to bring the price down ?

Seriously, the SL also comes standard with OnStar which will provide a years free Directions & Connections package. The SL has mirrors, but you probably have to buy a spare tire,...seriously

Just for clarification; the SLE was the base model until 10 when the SL was introduced.

IMO GM shouldn't sell these cars w/out the back up sensors. They are too big & the vision out of the back isn't good enough. For the cost it adds to the vehjicle they should make it standard on all models.

I agree and love mine, but with the advances of technology we have become lazy drivers. What did we do before them and back up cameras? We paid attention to our surroundings, before and after we got in our trucks. The sensors don't get everything.

That's my soap box. Sorry to hijack.

My new Acadia SLE is the first vehicle that I've had with the backup sensors. It's funny how quickly you get used to them and wishing that your other vehicles had them!

Re: Acadia SL vs SLE or SLT

I got the back up sensors and camera. I use them, but don't depend solely on them. Still looking back over the right shoulder. Old habits hard to break. As for visibility, going from a Chrysler Pacifica to an Acadia was the difference between night and day. I'm still floored by the reduced blind spots and increase visibility through the rear window. My biggest gripe is the headliner mounted drop down screen for the rear entertainment. That blocks the majority of the rear window when looking through the rear view mirror. If I had to do it over again, I would've opted for the head rest monitors. BTW, on-star is free for only 6 months on the 2011's. Satellite radio for 3 months. I love the satellite radio, but will the the subscription lapse. They usually slash the price considerably to get you back. On star - I still have 3 months left. Not sure what that costs per year. Used it a couple times to download directions. But have been stockpiling all my destinations into the nav so am pretty sure I can live without.

Also, anyone considering a fully loaded SLTII should take a serious look at the Denali. I was moments from inking a deal on the SLTII. Disappointed that they dropped the 20" chrome wheels from 2010. Dealer told me the Denali would run $5000 more. Him'd and haw'd about it. SLTII that I wanted sold in the mean time. Couldn't find another equipped to my liking. Went back several months later to order an SLTII the way I wanted it. Priced out a Denali at the same time and to my surprise, the Denali was only $1500 more. Got my 20's. Additional sound insulation. Some wood accents. A little more bling. Well worth it to me....nkay.

2011 Denali, Quicksilver, everything on it.
