 Welcome  That leaves the Traverse, Enclave, and maybe a Cadillac Lambda.  Eventhough you all like the Acadia (and so do I, eventhough I went with the Buick), this makes sense, they will have entry level, mid level, and ultra luxury level...love the idea.  I am sad, though, that we may not get to see what an updated look to the Acadia would be.   so sad

Agree- last post in that thread is almost a year old, although it is a good read- wonder if the guy ever bought the Acadia?

The numbers show that the Acadia is still a strong seller.  And by the numbers it should be the Enclave that is cut if GM is going only by sales numbers.  That would give the Traverse as the entry level, Acadia as the strong middle, and the Cadilac as the high end.  Strictly my opinion only.

Good analysis. I'd like to think GM could save money (Huh? do they need to now?) by not introducing the Cadillac version- let the existing Enclave fill this spot. The tooling costs, etc. as well as promoting a new badge/brand have got to be pretty costly, and they stand to alienate existing Enclave owners by doing that. Seems like they would learn from over-saturation of a platform.

There's only one of them that needs to go away, that's the Outlook.  The Acadia is about as identical as you can get, the others have unique style.  The point is that each Lambda has, for the most part, different buyers, with some overlap (me included).  True, I looked at both the Acadia and the Enclave, but most will only go for one of the 3 (or 4) versions.  Generalizing here: The Traverse appeals to mini-van buyers that want cheap transportation for 7 or 8 people, and entry level SUV buyers who don't want Tahoes anymore.  Outlook appeals to import buyers who are trying to do the right thing by buying American, or for those who really still believe Saturn is different than the rest of GM.  Enclave appeals more to car buyers (that's me), and uplevel luxury buyers who've mainly bought imports, cars or crossovers, but now see a GM design they like.   And, Acadia buyers are more traditional SUV buyers, those who want more than entry level, who want rugged looks, and a brand that has stood for that all along.  Again, not everyone will fit into these categories, but still can buy any of them and acheive mostly the same thing.  Another thing, I think the Lambdas would fail if they had the same exact options and packaging.  Similar, yes, but they all have different ways to get the options, and it's not as easy as just picking one of them, it takes time researching which one fits the buyer perfectly.  We wanted cloth, but also wanted some of the other options like power liftgate, auto climate, power seats, DIC, leather wrapped steering wheel, and with the Acadia we needed to go up to leather seats, and SLT for all that, which the price actually was higher.   (on the 2010's, it appears that some of that can be had now on the SLE)  Here's the thing, if Enclave went away, and Acadia stayed, I'd get the Acadia....not that much different.  I don't think I'd get the Traverse, for various reasons, but if they came out with a Cadillac, that would be beyond my price point, so I wouldn't get it.  In fact, the new Enclaves for 2010 have a higher price tag, and it's starting to go beyond what we would want.

Sensible assessment.  I'd bet the Acadia survives.

True, this is all rumor.  If it does, will everyone here be happy if the next one looks like the new Terrain?  I'm guessing there will be design cues that would tie the next Acadia to it's yonger sibling.

Have to have a closer look at that.  Have seen the pictures but none on the road yet.

Not only is the Acadia surviving, it's getting an upscale Denali package as well. Acadia's here to stay, folks Smiley

I've been asking around, trying to dig up more info on this, but so far, everyone is keeping tight lipped. I'll be sure to pass on any info I can get.

I heard the Escalade was supposed to move to the Acadia's platform around 2014 which makes since since the SRX is now a lux Equinox.  That means they'll be able to charge $70-90k for something based on the Acadia's platform.
