Reviving this a bit .. .
Like @AParker 2005 we went with a 2019 Acadia after finding a great deal on an Acadia SLT-1. $40,785 MSRP and $10,006 off after all discounts, incentives and a small $123 GM Card cash. So was $30,779 before taxes and fees.
Initially, we would not have thought abut the Acadia, but forgot it had been "resized" and was only 6" longer and 2.5" wider than out 2015 Equinox LTZ. But the interior space, comfort and ride is much nicer than the Equinox was.
We were amazed to find another vehicle with the size, feature and upscale feel of the Acadia for the price we got it for.
While not the Denali trim level, it has most all of what we had in the Equinox LTZ and more.
Particularly, we wanted another SUV with a V6 like the Equinox had. And we are getting 20 to 22 MPG in mixed driving and 27 to 31 MPG on the highway depending on wind, speed , terrain and traffic conditions. About the same or +2 to +3 MPG better than the Equinox.
We didn't really need the 3rd row rear seats, so keep them folded flat. WE do use them occasionally for grand kids and their parents. With them down, there is 41.7 cu. ft. of cargo space which is considerably more than the 29.6 in the current Equinox or Terrain. And with the 2nd row seats folded flat there is an amazing 79 cu. ft. of cargo space.
