Speaking of specifications... one of the deciding factors for us was space in the 3rd row. I would caution on comparing specs as it looks like each make has their own way of measuring. Specs can be deceiving. Nothing beats comparing in person...

I have a Honda Pilot (we're keeping it and getting rid of my Jeep, so I'll actually have 2 three row suvs). If anyone's been in the 3rd row of a Honda Pilot, you'll know it was made for midgets, not to mention how hard it is to get into the 3rd row.

Anyways I fit comfortably in the 3rd row of the Acadia. Yet when you go to Honda's and GMC's website to compare 3rd row specs, on paper it looks like the Honda is bigger.

You don't have 3rd row specs in your post so I grabbed it off the web:

3rd row head room: Pilot=38.6, Acadia=38.4
3rd row leg room: Pilot=30.2, Acadia=33.2
3rd row shoulder room: Pilot=59.7, Acadia=57.8
3rd row hip room: Pilot=49.0, Acadia=48.30

so on paper Honda for some reason looks a bit bigger at the shoulder and hips. But in person, for some reason adults (I'm 5'7") fit so much more comfortably in the 3rd row of the Acadia.

When I get my Acadia (damn 6-8 weeks seems so far away), I'll sit in the rear of both and take pics.

Acadia is 1 foot longer than Pilot, then where is the space going?

Well, 3 inches go to the 3rd row leg room. I'd guess at least another 4-6 inches behind the 3rd row for storage. And even a subtle front or rear bumper change could account for the other 3-5 inches...?

Can somebody be so kind to measure the width of the car with one door open. I would like to get an estimate on how much garage space is needed to get into the vehicle if both cars are in the garage. I guess it would be easier to just measure the door/opening from the fully opened position and add the width of the vehicle. Does anybody know if they measure vehicles at the widest point? mirror-to-mirror?

Thanks in advance.

Budi - from the widest part of the rear fender (not the side mirrors), the doors take up an additional 32 inches fully open. So add that to the width of the acadia (78.2) for a total of about 110 inches.

Does anyone know the specs on rooftop load capacity?

I'll be getting the AWD and I think I'm correct that my overall load capacity for people plus cargo will be 1,462 lbs (6,398 weight rating less 4,936 curb weight). I have four kayaks that I load on my Pilot from time to time and am wondering if there's a weight rating listed somewhere for the Acadia's roof.

Lee,

Its about the size of a Graco Double Stroller laying on its side - not much more room than that. ;D I do not have the specs but that is about all I can fit behind the 3rd row seat with maybe a grocery bag or two - you have to remember that the 3rd row seats are angled so the higher up off the floor you go the less room you have.

MORE INFO I CAME ACROSS:



2007 GM 3.6L V6 VVT (LY7)

3.6L V6 VVT (LY7) CAR AND TRUCK ENGINE
2007 Model Year Summary

• Higher Output Application in 2007 Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia
• New Application in 2007 Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura
• Smaller Pitch Timing Chain
• Dual-Spray Fuel Injectors
• Improved Oil Pan


Full Description of New and Updated Features

Higher Output Application for 2007 Saturn Outlook
A new high-output version of the 3.6L V6 VVT powers the new Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia crossover sport-utility vehicles. This engine is a transverse installation, matched with GM Powertrain’s new 6T75 Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive.

The 3.6L V6 VVT HO generates more horsepower thanks to changes in the cylinder heads and induction system, increasing airflow through the engine. The intake ports have been reshaped to increase flow, and a new intake manifold features longer runners that reduce airflow restrictions. Finally, the exhaust cams have been re-profiled to speed the flow of exhaust gas out of the engine at wide-open throttle. Maximum lift does not change, but duration increases to keep the exhaust valves open a fraction longer. Preliminary figures indicate a horsepower increase of nearly six percent compared to the previous most powerful version of the 3.6L V6 VVT.

The higher output version retains the 3.6L V6 VVT’s sophisticated variable intake system. The aluminum intake manifold has a valve in its plenum, managed by the engine control module (ECM), which opens and closes according to engine speed. At idle, the valve is open. From just past idle to mid rpm, the valve closes and effectively creates two separate plenums, each feeding the intake runners and ports for half of the cylinders. This optimizes airflow at lower engine speeds to maximize low-end torque. At higher engine speeds, the plenum plate opens, creating a single, higher-volume plenum feeding all cylinders for freer breathing and high-rev horsepower. The variable intake manifold (VIM) allows optimal airflow for a given engine speed without the compromises of a fixed-volume plenum. In combination with cam phasing, it means impressively linear torque delivery.

This higher output version of the 3.6L V6 VVT features its own comprehensive acoustic package, with a full sound-dampening cover between the cam covers. The base Outlook and Acadia will be equipped with single exhaust in both front- and all-wheel drive variants. All other vehicles built with the higher-output 3.6L V6 VVT will feature dual exhaust.


New Application in 2007 Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura
The 3.6L V6 VVT is available as an option on the G6 coupe and sedan and the all-new Aura sedan. This is a transverse installation. Accessory drive is similar to that in the Buick LaCrosse, but in the G6 and Aura the 3.6L V6 VVT will be equipped with Powertrain’s new 6T70 Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission.

Smaller Pitch Timing Chain
The 3.6L V6 VVT in the Cadillac CTS has a new timing chain with a smaller pitch (7.7 mm compared to 9.5mm previously) and more links. The chain features an inverted tooth design. The smaller links engage at a lower impact speed, which decreases the noise generated. In conjunction with the new chain, the number of teeth on the sprockets is also increased, increasing the meshing frequency and further reducing noise and vibration.

The new timing chain is a running change that will occur in all of GM Powertain’s V6 VVT engines through the course of the 2007 model year.

Dual-Spray Fuel Injectors
Fuel injectors on the 3.6L V6 VVT now have two tiny spray nozzles. Developed with Bosch, the dual-spray injectors improve fuel atomization in the combustion chambers compared to single-tip injectors, allowing more complete combustion. The new injectors allow better emissions management. All 3.6L V6 VVTs except those built for the Buick LaCrosse are equipped with the dual-spray fuel injectors.

Improved Oil Pan
The oil pan on 3.6L V6 VVTs built for the Cadillac CTS, SRX and STS have been stiffened to improve powertrain rigidity and reduce vehicle vibration. The oil pan bolts to the transmission bell housing as well as the engine block, eliminating points of vibration.

Overview
Introduced in the 2004 Cadillac CTS and SRX, the 3.6L V6 VVT (RPO LYZ) was the first in GM Powertrain’s global family of high-feature V6 engines. Its architecture was jointly developed by GM technical centers in Australia, Germany, the United States and Sweden. The 3.6L VVT V6 is based on the philosophy that a true family of global engines provides the best value and performance for the customer and the best return on investment for General Motors. It applies the most advanced automotive engine technology available, from state-of-the-art casting processes to full four-cam phasing to ultra-fast data processing and torque-based engine management. Since its launch, application has spread to an expanding number of vehicles for one primary reason. The 3.6L V6 VVT delivers a market-leading balance of good specific output, high torque over a broad rpm band, fuel economy, low emissions and first-rate noise, vibration and harshness control, with exclusive durability enhancing features and very low maintenance.

The 3.6L V6 VVT’s engine block is cast with sand molds from A319 aluminum, with strong cast-in iron bore liners, six-bolt main bearing journals and inter-bay breather vents. Cylinder heads are also aluminum. Four valves per cylinder and a silent chain valvetrain contribute to both smoothness and high output. Four-cam phasing changes the timing of valve operation as operating conditions such as rpm and engine load vary. That means smooth, even torque delivery with high specific output (horsepower per liter of displacement) and excellent specific fuel consumption. Cam phasing also pays big dividends in reducing exhaust emissions. By closing the exhaust valves late at appropriate times, the cam phasers create an internal exhaust-gas recirculation system. The 3.8L V6 VVT meets all emissions mandates without complex, weight-increasing emissions control systems such as EGR and air injection reaction (AIR).

Aluminum-intensive construction extends to the pistons, which are manufactured of forged aluminum and considerably lighter than conventional steel pistons. Less weight means less reciprocating mass in the engine, which in turn means less inertia and greater operating efficiency. Moreover, the V6 VVT pistons are crafted with a number of features that enhance durability and reduce noise and harshness, including a high-tech polymer coating and floating wrist pins. The V6 VVT engine family was developed with pressure-actuated oil squirters in all applications. Three jet assemblies in the block hold a pair of oil-squirting nozzles that drench the underside of each piston and the surrounding cylinder wall with an extra layer of cooling, friction-reducing oil. The jets reduce piston temperature, which in turn allows the engine to produce more power without reducing long-term durability. The extra layer of oil on the cylinder walls and wristpin further dampens noise emanating from the pistons.


The oil pan provides another example of extensive efforts to minimize noise and vibration in the 3.6L V6 VVT. Cast aluminum dampens internal engine noise better than a conventional stamped steel pan. Structurally, it is considerably stiffer. The design was optimized with math-based analysis and carefully crafted curves in the pan’s sides and bottom. These reduce the broadcasting or “drumming’’ of noise created as oil flows through the crankcase, and they increase bending stiffness in the pan.

The 3.6L V6 VVT is managed the Bosch Motronic ME9 controller. This sophisticated electronic control module (ECM) uses a torque-based control strategy, which improves upon throttle-based management systems that rely exclusively on a throttle position sensor to manage electronic throttle control. The torque-based strategy measures the position of the intake plenum plate, cam phasing positions and other operational parameters and translates that data into an ideal throttle position and engine output, based on the driver’s positioning of the gas pedal. The ECM and a wide range of sensors allow failsafe systems, including ignition operation in the event of timing sensor failures. The control software protects the V6 VVT from permanent damage in the event of complete coolant loss, and allows the engine to operate at reduced power for a prescribed distance sufficient for the driver to find service. It also allows a number of other customer-friendly features, including GM's industry-leading Oil Life System, which determines oil change intervals by actual operation parameters, rather than a preset mileage limit.

The cam drive and valvetrain components require no scheduled maintenance. A sophisticated cam-chain tensioner, high-quality cam phasing components and hydraulic lash adjusters are designed to ensure optimal valvetrain performance for the life of the engine with no adjustment. Even perishable components provide extended useful life. The spark plugs have dual-platinum electrodes and a service life of 100,000 miles without degradation in spark density. The plugs are easy to remove because they are located in the center of the cam cover. Extended life coolant retains its cooling and corrosion-inhibiting properties for 100,000 miles in normal use. The two accessory-drive belts were specified primarily for low-noise operation, yet they are manufactured of EPDM rather than neoprene and should last the same 100,000 miles before replacement is recommended. The oil filter requires only element replacement, and it’s designed to virtually eliminate spillage when the cartridge is removed.

The V-6 VVT development and production teams made assembly efficiency a priority. All global V6 variants can be built with no significant casting changes to major components. Core engine components are designed to be common whenever possible. The basic V6 block is used in all vehicle applications, with differences limited to machining. While different vehicles require different oil pans, the pan’s mating surfaces with the engine block and transmission are common in all cases, allowing considerable assembly efficiencies. The net result is streamlined procurement practices, fewer tool changes in the plant, shorter assembly time and improved quality for the customer.

Production for the 3.6L V6 VVT is located in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada and Port Melbourne, Australia.
