2017 Lambda Chatter

A bit of discussion over on the Acadia board regarding the 2017 Acadia unvieling: http://www.acadiaforum.net/index.php?topic=34698.0

It seems that to meet more stringent fuel economy requirements GM is shrinking the Acadia significantly and also giving the base model *a four cylinder engine*!

Seems like a bad move to me - they already have the Equinox and the Terrain in this space - basically the Acadia becomes a Terrain with a 3rd row and insufficient cargo space.

Thoughts? Does this matter to you (assuming you might purchase another Lambda platform vehicle in the first place)?

Re: 2017 Lambda Chatter

There is also the option for the 6 cylinder. Also from what I can tell of interior photos, it is significantly shorter. Still has the 3 rows of seats but not nearly the room behind the 3rd row.

You are correct, more on the size with the Terrain.

My 2011 Enclave will last many more years. I have barely 33,500 miles on it now.
