I really think that the Outlook is the best looking Lambda. I hope I don't offend any other Lambda owners because they all look nice. If it weren't for the possiblity of getting a direct injection engine in the 09 model, I'd get an Outlook now. My only hope is that the Outlook will get that engine in the 09 model year. Does anybody have any real info about the possiblity of the 09 Outlook having the direct injection engine? If it is going to get that, I will order one as soon as I can. :blob:

Yes...old news, as I said in the other thread:

ALL 2009 Lambda vehicles (Traverse, Acadia, Enclave, and Outlook) get the 3.6L Direct Injection engine standard, which was already confirmed. Otherwise, the only key new things will be available Bluetooth, back-up camera without requiring navigation, and cooled (in addition to heated) seats available on higher trim levels.

The ratings for the engine were printed with the Traverse, which were:
1) Single exhaust models (such as the Outlook XE): 281 hp/210 kW* and 253 lb.-ft./343 Nm*
2) Dual exhaust models (such as the Outlook XR): 286 horsepower (213 kW)* and 255 lb.-ft. of torque (345 Nm)*

So compared to current, the numbers aren't that much different, but the power/torque band is a bit different. Should be a little (not hugely) more responsive all around, and possibly be able to eek out another mpg or so here and there.

DI engines should be more fuel efficient since they can more precisely control fuel amounts. It's not a huge difference, but I predict a 1mpg increase in EPA estimates, so 17/25mpg for FWD

Yes. It's a small difference, but expecting a +1mpg bump should be about spot on ;)
