Surprised they didnít offer the 0% for 72 months to you?
Apparently to get that 0%, you had to do the sticker price or only some off of it.

They discounted the vehicle quite a bit so we just went that route. Monthly, it worked out for us even though it's a little more than I wanted currently. After we refi, we'll be sitting closer to where we like.

I get so overwhelmed doing these deals

I really like my '12 terrain. looked at getting the '17 or '18 acadia but theres no way im going to sacrifice that much cargo space for a third row. you can barely fit a regular suitcase in the back let alone a family of suitcases. its definitely not a family trip car or any trip car from my prospective. it definitely wont fit the stroller our stroller.

Itís not marketed as a full time 3rd row seat SUV thatís what the Buick Enclave or Chevy Traverse are for. Itís meant for the times when you need the 3rd row seats for short periods, like going out to dinner with 2 other couples or taking your kids and friends to baseball, football or soccer practice.
It is available in a 2 3 2 seating configuration as well as a 2 2 2 configuration and with the 3rd seats down it has more cargo space than the old Equinox or Terrain.
You donít have to have the 3rd row seat up if you donít want to.

Good for you . . .. . Why not buy the new Chevy Blazer or GMC Acadia. ABout the same size as the 2011 -17 Equinox and Terrain.

The enclave and traverse are the exact same vehicle as the acadia. The only difference is badging.

Sir you are wrong. The new redesigned 2017 MY and up is smaller and approximately 700 lbs lighter than the Enclave and Traverse. They were all the same size from I think MY 2007 to 2016 and in 2017 GMC building an Acadia Limited which was the old body style and size.

Either way all three have crap for cargo space for a family. Even the taho/ yukon with the third row sucks. Your better off getting a full size pickup or suburban if you wanna travel anywhere.

Depends on the size of your family and your needs. That's why GM has a full compliment of cars, CUV/SUVs and pickup tricks.

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.

2019 GMC Acadia SLT-1 3.6L LGX V6 - Build Date: 4-11-2019 - Bought 6-22-2019

SOLD - - 2015 Equinox LTZ 3.6L FWD Champagne Silver Metallic *Build Date 1-08-2015 *

SOLD with *38,865 miles 8-15-2019.
