Re: Defferences between Acadia and Outlook

Here are a few differences that come to mind quickly;

Audio system - Outlook = unbranded, Acadia = Bose
Woodgrain Interior - Not available on the Acadia
Rear Pillers are "hidden" on the Outlook
Instrument lighting - Outlook = amber, Acadia = red
HUD - Not available on the Outlook

Re: Differences between Acadia and Outlook

Acadia comes w/ 1 year Directions and Connections (turn by turn directions), Outlook comes with the lower Safe and Sound plan, correct?

Yes, that's correct.

This makes no sense. How many people are going to pay more for the Acadia because it includes the better plan? How many will even know this?

If I were GM, I'd just include the basic plan, reduce the Acadia's price accordingly, then offer people the choice to upgrade the plan. I assume you can pay extra to upgrade the plan on the Outlook.

On differences between the two, I prefer the more solid door pulls and generally more precise appearance of the Acadia's trim, but then door panel design is one of the things I pay much closer attention to than most people.

Re: Differences between Acadia and Outlook

Dual zone climate (Outlook) vs Tri-zone climate (Acadia).

Mkaresh - I'm not exactly sure why they would not give each Lambda the same OnStar plan. If your goal is to try to bring a brnad like Saturn more upscale, why not help them out by subsidizing something like the directions and connections plan that costs (internally) much less than the retail value. This seems like a no-brainer, esp for the short term (like a 1 year free subscription) not only to help create a more luruxy image, but also to sell more D&C plans down the road! Far fewer people will buy it having never used it than if they got used to that upscale feature then had it taken away.

(maybe that's the reasoning behind their new "2 months free trial" push they recently started)

Re: Differences between Acadia and Outlook

You folks missed the the most obvious difference...
Outlook looks a heck of a lot better than the Acadia!

Btw,Outlook XR has tri-zone air, stating it does not is incorrect.
