I was searching for some prior threads on the Acadia engine and I found this one. Some posts and reviews are making me think the engine is under powered for the Acadia. Or, is it just the tranny lag that is the the concern and not the engine.

So, for the lucky ones who have been driving the Acadia for some time, do you think the engine has enough power for the vehicle? Especially if you tow a trailer.
