GM used to use number/letters to designate platforms.

Like- GMT-360 used to be the Trailblazer/Envoy platform.

They then moved over to using the Greek Alphabet to designate platforms.

Lambdas- Traverse,Acadia, Enclave etc..

Thetas- Equinox,terrain etc..

theres quite a few more greek lettered vehicles out there.

Don't sully the good name of my SRX this way!

(lol, just kidding... that photo especially shows some similarity - the nose of the Traverse in that photo looks pointy, like an SRX. Smiley

LOL.  After spending 3 hours taking out my TCM last night I'm a little frusterated.  Otherwise I like my car...  Tonight we'll see if it shifts normally again after replacing 4 little plastic discs.  Next stop, front of engine oil leak.  My bad buying the first year LAMBDA (2007 Saturn Outlook XR AWD).  I'm pretty sure they got better 09 and up... shrug

Never - not once - ever - in 130,000 miles and 9 years of driving Lambdas have they ever broken down on me.  Small, minor nits (i.e. airbag light recall etc.) - but lame?  Definitely not... some of the best vehicles I've ever owned.  (Although my XT5 gives it a serious run for the money - and yes, it's a cousin to the next-gen Acadia.)
