OK I got my 08 SLE Acadia 2 weeks ago and it had a sticker price of $36,980.00. Over the weekend I saw an 09 Acadia that was specd out option for option as mine and the only difference was it had the new back up camera in the mirror as part of the Conv. package. There was over a $2000.00 difference in the sticker price? I guess I will go back to the dealer tonight and see what they are charging for the Conv. Package in 09. Once we know how much the Conv. Pkg. will cost than I guess the difference is just the price increase from 08 to 09.

Re: How much more will the Convenience Pkg. cost in 2009 with new back up camera

The camera/mirror is part of the visibility package (PCI) for 2009. I went to Edmunds and built both a 2008 and 2009 SLE (FWD) using your options:

2008
SLE base price: $30,140
Dark Crimson Metallic: 0
Conv. Pkg.: $435 (Includes remote start, keyless entry and Ultrasonic rear parking assist.)
Preferred Equipment Pkg. : $560 (Includes 6-way power driver seat and 2-way power front passenger seat)
Rear DVD: $2,055
Trailer Pkg.: $425
2nd row buckets: $495
Heated Washer System: $85
Destination charge: $735
Total MSRP: $34,930

2009
SLE base price: $30,950 ($810 more)
Dark Crimson Metallic: 0
Conv. Pkg.: $275 ($160 less, remote start & heated washer fluid)
Preferred Equipment Pkg. : $640 ($80 more, power driver seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel w/audio controls, Bluetooth for phone and body-color body side moldings)
Rear DVD: $2,055 (same)
Trailer Pkg.: $495 (up $70)
2nd row buckets: $495 (same)
Heated Washer System: $ Included in convenience package
Visibility pkg.: $695 (ultrasonic rear parking assist, rearview camera system and rearview mirror with camera display)
Destination charge: $735
Total MSRP: $36,340

Difference: $1,410

The 2008 models had a mid year price increase. I think Edmunds had the later higher price.

Hey thanks for the update but Edmunds mus be missing something. To start the price they came up with for mine was way off the sticker becasue the base price is $32,150.00 not $30,140.00 and we know the June increase was not 2K. The 09 I saw definatley listed the camera pkg. as part of the Conv. Pkg. Weather it will stay this way I have no idea but I will go back to the dealer tomorow and update.
Regards

Re: How much more will the Convenience Pkg. cost in 2009 with new back up camera

I referenced FWD prices. Edmunds is down for some reason right now, so I went to cars.com. When I look at AWD 2008 prices, I get the SLE @ $32,150. The remaining options would be the same cost.

AWD PRICES

2008
SLE base price: $32,150
Dark Crimson Metallic: 0
Conv. Pkg.: $435 (Includes remote start, keyless entry and Ultrasonic rear parking assist.)
Preferred Equipment Pkg. : $560 (Includes 6-way power driver seat and 2-way power front passenger seat)
Rear DVD: $2,055
Trailer Pkg.: $425
2nd row buckets: $495
Heated Washer System: $85
Destination charge: $735
Total MSRP: $36,940

2009
SLE base price: $32,950 ($800 more)
Dark Crimson Metallic: 0
Conv. Pkg.: $275 ($160 less, remote start & heated washer fluid)
Preferred Equipment Pkg. : $640 ($80 more, power driver seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel w/audio controls, Bluetooth for phone and body-color body side moldings)

Difference: $1,400

I went to the build your own on the GMC website and the 2009 model is still not listed, so I built a 2008 SLE AWD and then changed the 2008 to a 2009 in the address bar after entering ZIP 60601 (Chicago) on the find in inventory search. I found one at Grossinger Autoplex that had the Convenience package. Here is what the sticker says:
CONVENIENCE PACKAGE:
REMOTE START
HEATED WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID
$ 275.00

I looked at a couple more SLE models that had this listed, and they were the same.

The ordering info guide (revised 8-1-08, but not in this area) shows PDD the convenience package as consisting of:
PDD NEW! Convenience Package, includes (BTV) remote start and (XA7) heated windshield washer fluid

The sole reference to the camera for the SLE was for the PCI option (visibility package) :
DD8/UVC Rearview camera system, integrated into rearview mirror
1 - Included and only available with (PCI) Visibility Package.
The "1" is the footnote for the SLE.

If you find one where this has been thrown in on PDD, snap it up! Just be sure to look at the sticker carefully.
