Can you guys help me better understand the differences between the SLT-1 package and the SLT-2 package? 

My local dealer has one SLT-2 with all options minus HUD.  45k. However, they have an SLT-1 for 37.5k with the following options….

AM/FM Stereo CD/MP3 Player
Convenience Package
   Remote Start
   Rear Parking
Dual SkyScape
Entertainment System DVD with Bose surround sound
Tailoring Package
Power lift gate
XM Radio

What am I missing by not going with the SLT-2?  The SLT-1 has all the options I want minus the 19” wheels.  I understand the SLT-2 has more options with the power seats; the SLT has heated windshield wiper fluid.  Is the SLT-2 worth an additional 7k?

Also, the color is Carbon Metallic.  Not my first pick.

My bad folks.  I gave you two different numbers…

The SLT-2 is 44.7k
The SLT-1 is 39.6k

Only a 5k difference.  I gave you my supplier pricing on the SLT-1.

With those options added to an SLT-1, all you're missing from the SLT-2 is:

XM Radio
cargo share & net
3-prong outlet
Heated washers
express-up driver window

Most of the content of the SLT-2 can be added to an SLT-1.  The only significant diff I saw was they only let you add HUDs to an SLT-2 (but that's a marketing constraint, not engineering)


PS, That 'Tailoring' package will sure come in handy. I wish my vehicle could custom-fit my clothing.  Grin

There is also a difference in front seats. The driver's seat in an SLT-1 is 6-way power adjustable, while the SLT-2 is 8-way. The passenger seat is 2-way power adjustable in the SLT-1 with a manual lumbar support, which teh SLT-2 is 4-way power adjustable with a power-adjustable lumbar support.

The SLT2 also has power fold-in mirrors. An option you cannot get on any other trim package. Not always important, but I would have LOVED this option on ours, it's a tight squeeze into the garage. I believe that, more power seat options, memory seats/mirrors, express up/down windows (driver and passenger) are all included in SLT2 and can't be purchased as options on lower trims.

All replies on this thread are correct.  The biggest (i.e. $$$) differeneces between the 1 and the 2 are the front power seats and the power folding mirrors.  We initially spec'ed out an SLT-2 - all options minus DVD/Nav - and  after multiple "builds" on the GMC website we opted for a fully decked out SLT-1.  There was about $1,300 difference between the 2 trim levels and I could not warrent paying that much for a few options I did not see myself (or my wife since it is her vehicle) using much.

We ordered our SLT-1 with HUD, power liftgate, 115V, sunroof, heated washer fluid, RKE, etc.  Love it!

I think there is a difference in the seat memory function too.  Not sure the SLT-1 allows you to save 2 different configurations.  We just got our Acadia Tuesday night so I am still playing around with it.

Does anyone out there have an Acadia with the power folding mirrors?  I am concerned about parking an Acadia in my garage at home, since it is larger that the Envoy.  My Envoy fits just fine.  I am thinking I would have to fold the mirrors in to ensure that I would not hit them.  Does anyone else have this problem parking their Acadia in their garage?

Everyone with SLT2's have that feature, and nobody else. We really wanted it, since the Acadia is a tight fit into ours, but they didn't have an SLT2 in stock that we wanted, so no power mirrors for us. We just have to ease in and out slowly until the mirrors clear.

The memory seats are the only reason we want the SLT2.
 We have them on the Yucon and because the wife drives almost all the way forward and i cant even get in with the seats that way it makes it a must have.
I have gotten spoiled just hitting the button as soon as i open the door  Grin

Memory seats and mirrors.....Memory seats and mirrors.....Memory seats and mirrors.....Memory seats and mirrors.....Memory seats and mirrors.....

5x because it may be a do nothing $160 option on some cars, it would not have mattered if it was the only difference between the SLT1 and SLT2 and the cost difference was $4k, the SLT2 would be required for that feature.  We decided we had to have it on the last car (a Jeep GC Limited) -- and even though it does not set the driver's mirror right (Jeep has flunked fixing that 3 times)-- just the fact that I can get in and not slam my knees on the steering column makes it all worth it.  I don't ever think about positioning the seat.

That is not to say I was not a little ticked about it being tied to the highest trim, because I think the power rear door is a little silly (my wife does not agree), so is the 120v outlet as I have inverters already... the power folding mirrors are cool.    I would have argued for the SLE and saved 6k perhaps if I could get the memory seats on that, however.   It is not something that should be tied to trim level, but GM is getting more money from me for just that reason.

One thing I find interesting is the SLE, SLT1, SLT2 designation, as well as on some Chevy's there is a base and LT1, LT2, and LT3 levels.  Why do they not go with different trim names completely so they can badge the car that way?  like an SL, SLT and Limited?

I also saw a Durango today that was an SLT trim - Does that mean something I'm not aware of? Sorry for sounding dumb, but I had absolutely ZERO interest in any American car before this, so I have all but ignored them on the roads until now.

I don't know what SLT stands for.  And I don't know what SLE stands for either.  My point is that there are 3 trim levels, but only two names.  Seems silly there.    I don't know why carmakers even label the base model trim.

My wife had a 98 Honda Accord EX V6 which was the top of the line coupe, but the next one down was the DX which I thought sounded like "Deluxe" and would be the highest end trim.  And then they had an LX as well.

Is this true ?

I don't think this is correct.  Both GMC.com GMCanada.com show HUD as being an available option for SLT1 and SLT2.
HID headlights are only available on the SLT2 though.

Jens...my wife's Acadia has the power folding mirrors and we have nine foot wide garage doors...and her previous vehicle was an Envoy...she has no problem parking and does not fold the mirrors.  She does back in to the garage.  I also have the power mirrors and I fold them in EVERY time I park the car in a parking lot.  It keeps people from knocking them when they squeeze between the narrow spots!!  I also power fold them at the car wash.  So...two views of power mirrors...I wouldn't be without them...my wife probably doesn't really need/use them.

Yeah, that's not correct at all, sorry. The options that come w/ SLT2 that you can't get otherwise are power folding mirrors, 8 way power drivers seat/4 way power passenger seat (up from 6/2way in SLT1), memory seats & mirrors w/ 2 settings, and express up and down windows. THis thread actually covers everything pretty well if you read through it. The HUD and all other options can be had on lower trims.
