Didn't compare the SLE or SLT1, but the price increase for the SLT2 was only .57%, a lot better than the 3.5% some were predicting.

I priced the 2009 SLT2 I ordered vs a 2008 model and with the cooled seats added to the 2008 models the 2009 was actually less money (sticker to sticker not counting incentives) due to a price cut on the Nav radio.

EDIT
User Theresa pointed out the .57% was for the higher later/latest 2008 model price from the GMC website. When compared to the introductory price of $36,650 for the 2008 SLT2 on Edmunds, the increase is significantly more, a little over 2.5%, so we are still under the average.

SLE gets a can of sealant? No spare?

Cost cutting appears to have returned to GM. Let's hope it doesn't infect build quality or interior materials like it did the last few decades.

From the Traverse workbook:
Tire Inflator Kit
There’s a new, convenient way to fix the majority of potential tire problems on the 2009 Traverse LS — the Tire Inflator Kit. The
Tire Inflator Kit replaces the compact spare on LS models only.
Please use the following talking points when answering customer questions regarding the Tire Inflator Kit.
■ Quicker to inflate a punctured tire with the Inflator Kit — no lug nuts to remove and no jack to position and crank (repairs
punctures in tread only, not sidewall)
■ No need to lift/store heavy, dirty tires
■ No need to jack the car up in difficult locations
Note: Jack, wrench and spare tire mounting hardware are not included on Traverse LS with the standard Tire Inflator Kit. If ordering the optional Compact Spare Tire and Wheel from the factory, the jack, wrench and mounting hardware are included.

Remember, customers can utilize available roadside assistance from OnStar for problems that cannot be addressed with the Tire Inflator Kit.


OK, if it is so great, then why isn't it also standard on the higher level trims???

I suspect we'll see more cost cutting with the way their stock has been headed of late.

Does the SLE have the Tire Pressure Monitor system? If it doesn't that would explain why you can have it in the SLE and not SLT.

Depends on how you look at it. If you compare the 2008 prices when they were released, there is a sizable (2.5% in the case of the SLT2, have not checked the others) increase as compared to the now-current 2008 price, which reflects the mid-year increase. Edmunds still shows the original 2008 release pricing. For the 2008 FWD SLT1, it is shown on Edmunds as $34,675 while it is currently the $35,410 you listed on the GMC website.

With the $35,410 current price on the GMC website, yes the price actually went down for that model as compared to 2008 models that are available right now. It went up when compared to the original release price.

While I was shopping, I have seen some 2008 Outlooks that apparently had been on the lot for a while, they still had the release base price on the sticker. I'm sure there are some Acadias in this situation as well.

The price may look like it went down, but my guess is that something else changed. Perhaps the base package is different somehow. I know from the 2007 to the 2008, the SLE looked as if it dropped a few hundred bucks. But what they did was make the 8 passenger seating standard in the 2008 SLE with an option to buy the captains chairs. The 2007 had the captains chairs standard and you would get a discount if you changed to 8 passenger.

Based on looking at the pricing in this link http://www.acadiaforum.net/forum/index.php?topic=4097.0 , it seems to me that the packages totally changed. I bet that the same equipped car will be more, and that this is just a way to market it as a lower priced car.

Here's the full options list with no user name or password needed http://eogld.ecomm.gm.com/NASApp/domestic/vehiclesel.jsp?year=2009&regionID=1&divisionID=2, just click print book and select Acadia, then select print model and click on print. Don't worry it won't print it just opens up in a new page. :cheers:
That info has been posted elsewhere and the numerous/redundant pages make it a difficult read. The standard and optional equipment and prices are at the top of this thread.

Thanks for the update.

I'm looking forward to the headrest DVD pricing since it is now a factory option. If cost-effective, we may go that route & sell the cloth covered ones I bought.

No bluetooth pricing?

Since SLE model doesn't come with it...there's has to be a module update to receive it.
The 7-25-08 update says this:
NEW! Bluetooth for phone, personal cell phone connectivity to vehicle audio system and HMI (Human Machine Interface)
1 - Included and only available with (PCM) Preferred Package. Requires (UE1) OnStar.
A1
2009 GMC Acadia EQUIPMENT GROUPS
Published July 25, 2008 Page 4


Since like you observed Bluetooth is standard with the SLT versions, for the SLE you have to order the Preferred Package ($640 above, this is option code PCM) to get Bluetooth. The option prices are above & were stickied by admin in one of the sections a while back. Fortunately you can get it for the SLE as part of a package and not have to be steered into a costlier model.

Based on the verbage, it sounds like BT is an ADD-ON to On-Star vs part of On-Star. So ah...I'm still looking for the module price of the BT unit.

I don't think it is an onstar add on, it would be internal to the Nav unit. There is no reason other than the microphone that it would need to be connected to onstar. Is onstar connected to the nav unit in the current vehicle?

I thought we've already been told the Nav units are the same...

There is no feedback from the Nav to Onstar - it's one way. In order for it to go the other way, there needs to be a new I/O into the Onstar device as well as Nav unit. That means TWO new devices that are required to accomodate BT. This also means two new devices that are now incompatible with all previous models.

If GM was smart (not saying they are) they wouldn't create a new supply chain requirement for BT - especially if it can be done easier. With the current limitation/capability of the existing Nav, they would be creating a two - maybe three - year supply chain. I doubt it would turn a reasonable profit - particularly if they can continue current unit use.
