Well, my first look at an Acadia was on the Garden State Parkway, about 7 weeks ago. I saw it from a distance, stepped on the gas, and cozied up behind it. Love at first sight! The body lines, the dual exhaust. And then I saw the badge. Geez, it was a Saturn Outlook! Saturn? A ballsy crossover? Priced it out on their website. No offense, but $32-33k plus for a Saturn??? Then I did some more internet sleuthing, found out about the Lambda platform, and the Acadia. Always had respect for the GMC "Professional Grade" marketing thing. The next day I drove to a local dealer near my office and he had one parked front and center at the main entrance. Holy crap! This thing is a brute with very sweet lines! Loved the interior layout! To my dismay, the dealer had not one brochure for me to take home (and drool over). Didn't have time for a test drive (lunch hour). However, that same evening I stopped at a GMC dealer near my house, and there it was ... front and center on the showroom floor. in white, loaded to the hills. I was stunned ... and knew at that moment that I had to have one. A little sidenote: I haven't purchased an American vehicle since the 80's, when my used Camaro SS gave way to a brand new Toyota Corolla during the gas crisis. Since then it's been a steady stream of Toyota's, Mazda's, MB's and Beemer's. So I started shopping around, at limited supply, with most dealers offering MSRP only with the $1k rebate. My local dealer became my hero .... $2300 off MSRP plus the $1k rebate. In a few days he had one come in on a swap that was exactly what I wanted (silver/SLT1/sunroofs/power liftgate/Bose 6CD/rear sensors/XM/remote start/captain's 2nd row) at $38400 less $3300 for a net of just over $35. The Saturn Outlook is a pretty impressive option in this class ... but I'm real happy to be with GMC for this ONE!
