WE had a similar experience. Our previous vehicle was a 2015 Equinox LTZ with the 3.6L LFX V6 engine. We liked it well enough, but an excellent deal came along last June on Acadia so we moved up.I also have a 2019 Denali with the tech package. I love this suv. Rides great, plenty of power. I use to own a GMC Denali Terrain 2013. I put 137,000 miles on it. The only thing I replace twice was new batteries. . The new Denali Terrain only came with a turbo 4 cylinder. Not interested in 4 cylinder vehicles. Stepped up to the Denali Acadia, so glad I did. Will by another one when it’s time to trade the 2019 in.
Also, I was not interested in the down sized Equinox/Terrain with turbo 4 cylinder engines.
We are very happy with the smooth, quiet ride and excellent MPG of our 2019 Acacia.
