Just ordered my Acadia with:
SLT-2 AWD Carbon Metallic/Titanium Leather
19" alum tires
Heads up display
for 41,129 after 1,500 of dealer rebates
#6 of 474 SLT-2 On Order.
Feb 09, 2007 (7:29 am)
SLT-2 - loaded except trailer package and rear audio controls. MSRP of $44,390. Final price depends on rebates and incentives upon delivery. $41,690 is locked in and I anticipate the $500 rebate + $1,000 conquest cash for a final price of $40,190.

I purchased my Acadia from dealer inventory in Atlanta at $300 over dealer invoice (which included advertising fee). This was a straight up purchase, no trade, and the $300 over price was before any applicable rebates.
8 passenger seating
MSRP - $38,900
Edmunds Invoice - 36,126
Dealer Invoice (with regional advertising) - $36714.78
Sale Price (before rebates) - $37,014.78
Rebates: $1,000 conquest & $1,000 GM Card Bonus and 4.9% financing for 36 months (just missed out on $500 bonus cash)

That does not look like a good deal. I just leased a 2007 Audi Q7 3.6 Premium (MSRP of $55,000) with all of those options and more for 36 months, 15,000 miles per year for $730/month with no cap cost reduction ($1700 due at lease signing)
THe killer with your lease is the interest rate. The residual isn't great, either, but that's a brand new model for you. Does GMAC offer Multiple Security Deposits? If you are unfamiliar, this means you can make several fully refundable security deposits and buy down the money rate. It can save you $30-50/month or more and equates to 10-15% tax free guaranteed return on your money.
My father just bought an Acadia, beautiful truck. But don't pay a lease price equivilent to a car $15,000 more expensive.

That is not fair to do!Audi has a better rate than GM, and a residual also.The Acadia is a brand new model in a different segment than the Q7. The Q7 must have a strong lease while a cheaper car does not need it yet. I do not think that applies to his question. LOVE the Q7!

Thank you! I think the Acadia is a great truck. It has virtually all of the options that my Q7 has. Very similar in size as well. My point is why would you pay the same monthly lease payment for a car that is $15,000 less expensive? A Money factor of 0.0033 is very high. The Audi lease factor for 3 years 15k miles is 0.00038 (0.91%) Makes a tremendous difference in monthly payments. Makes the Acadia unattractive to lease. Same thing with BMW right now. There are no lease incentives on the new X5. Same price as my Q7, almost $200/month more expensive right now. Just not worth it right now. Buy the Acadia rather than lease it, with the way things are right now.
