What the actual difference between the outlook Dual Zone Climate Control and the Acadia Tri Zone?

The Acadia Tri-Zone system allows the driver and right-front passenger to independently control temperature. There is also a control for the backseat to independently control their fan/temp. Dual zone does not allow any rear seat control only driver and right-front passenger control.

The Outlook does offer "tri-zone."
The rear passenger can control fan speed, vent location and up to 12* additional heat in 1* increments.

Actually, that's not quite correct. My SLE has the manual controls and I can control front (both sides together- not independent driver & passenger) and rear (controled from the back seat- can turn it on and off from the front).

Scotted73, Thanks!

So it is a "tri-zone" same as Acadia? They(Saturn) call it Dual zone and I just neede to be sure.

Not positive, but if they call it "dual zone", I would think it is the same as Acadia SLE- front and rear controls but not separate driver and passenger.

I can confirm this. My SLE has Dual Zone which allows me to control the front (but not driver/passenger independently) and the back, or the back can adjust the fan and temperature settings themselves.

My Outlook XR has Drivers side and passenger side individual temp controls and the second row has a control for the rear as well. I believe it is the same thing as "tri-zone" although Saturn calls it "dual zone".
