tom3 Too late, we're in a new Chevy. Side note, we turned in our '17 Terrain, SLEII, loaded with sunroof after the lease ran out. We had extended the lease a couple months trying to figure out what was next. But average trade in on it was between $18 and 19k from what we were told. GM leasing wouldn't budge on the buyout price ($24k) or we would have kept that machine. See it on a lot in Pa. listed at $25k. I'm wondering if maybe it's better to run all the leased miles off, maybe get a better price on the buyout?

scbearsfan Tom3, where are you located? By me they running between $4K to 6K off nothing like JayTee got. A couple of months ago one dealer did have some that were $10K off on some models.

tom3 If we could have gotten 25% off on an Acadia we'd be in one today. Our GMC dealer liked their cars way too much so we had to let them keep it. Probably the ideal CUV I think.

Close enough, we have two premium's available in my area; 91 no ethanol and 93 with ethanol. I've used both.

Is their upper grade 93 Octane?

Dewey When you open the gas door it says premium. I will run better on higher obtain. Turbo needs premium, because it burns slower than 87. I would at least run 89 before 87 if I had to.

c&wsinbad JayTee, Thanks for that clarification. I hadn't caught that as I was reviewing the Acadia/Travers/Enclave alternatives. That information certainly points me toward the Acadia--siz and weight are critical factors to me.

As scbearsfan says .. . The Acadia was a complete redesign in 2017 and is now just a tad larger than the 2nd Gen Equinox/Terrain. It is built on the same platform as the Cadillac XT5 in Spring Hill, TN.
The new Blazer is similar in size to the Acadia, but does not offer the 3rd row seating or optional center row captains chair seats.


About GMC Acadia

The GMC Acadia is a mid-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV). It is the largest GMC crossover currently offered, slotting above the compact GMC Terrain.
The current model was introduced for the 2017 model year and represents the second generation of the Acadia nameplate. It rides on the GM C1 platform shared with the Cadillac XT5. It is expected that the upcoming, future Chevrolet Blazer will ride on the same platform. Meanwhile, the second-generation Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave use a longer-wheelbase variant of the same architecture.
Compared to its first-generation predecessor, the second-gen Acadia is an all-new vehicle that is one size segment smaller, while also being sleeker, more modern, more tech-laden and much lighter. Despite its smaller size, the second-gen Acadia manages to retain three rows of seating and generous cargo space.

Nope the Acadia was downsized for MY 2017, lost about 400 pounds, several inches in cargo room. As of now the Enclave and Traverse are the only full size SUV GM has. Sorry Cadillac just came out with an XT7 which is now their full size SUV.
