OK; let's say I am driving and I notice an Acadia as I approach from the rear. I can't seem to tell a difference between any of the year models unless it's a Blue/Gold (then I can narrow down to 07 or 08). Otherwise how do you tell the difference? I know for 09 they removed the Acadia badges from the doors; other than that I can't seem to tell a difference. The only other thing I can think of is Silver/Green and I think that is an 09 color? Maybe 08?

Silver Green is a new color for 09. I can't tell the difference in the model years either.

2009 also brought new 19" wheels. They did away with those unsightly rivets on the 07-08 19" wheels. IMO, the 09 19's much, much nicer than the 07-08's!! 8)

Looking inside, perforated seats = 2009. :thumb:

Could you provide a pic of your 19's for comparison? I kinda like the "riveted" 19's; but that's a personal preference

The 09 wheel has a darker finish. The 08 is a bright finish. You have to see them up close. I too still like the 08 wheel. I would have order them if they were still available on the 09.
