How did you know I like Becks ???? It's gotta be DARK though.
rorr, will be sending me some beer Sam Adams Cherry Wheat pretty soon over our Camaro bet which was he believe the 5.3 LS-4 would be the base V8 and it's looking like the LS-2 or the LS-3 is going to be the base V8.
I'll happily take some Becks from ya as well pal.-grin. I never turn down free beer. I'll take the bet IF our bet is the Denali model will debut by Model Year 2009. It should be annouced this fall or next season's autoshows as GMC, would be fools not to offer the Acadia in Denali trim as 50% of their sales are Denali's.
So do we have a deal OW ????? See what you did. I'm thirsty now !!!

I like Becks and Heine but the lighter beer.
I can not take your bet, however, because you nailed it. They will announce this year and will design in the V-8 in '09.
Like I always said, you are dialed into the big 3 real close.
I'll still buy you a Becks anytime! It's nice to know someone whose family I supported by buying U.S. cars. Hopefully, the tide changes me back!
BTW, my wife owns an '03 Denali. Yes, I bought the extended bumper/bumper warranty! She almost got killed when the MAP sensor was failing and the engine stalled while in operation at around 15K miles and I had to threaten the Lemon Law (NJ) at the 3rd visit to fix this dangerous condition.

That sucks. I really know a lot of people that own Denali's like you and have had trouble free experiences.
Well on any car I buy now days pal regardless if it's a lexus or as bad as some VW's in reliability make sure you get a extended warranty. One trip to the shop sometimes pays for it's self.
To be honest with you OW, I really do not know for sure what I'm going to buy. Hell it could be an Acadia, but I do have my favorites and some of those are NON-GMers. The wife wants to maybe take another chance and get a 09' Acura TL, as that was her favoritest car ever. I personally would like to stay under $40K if I can help it on my next car.
We will see....right now the wife is try to find the owner's of a house in our neighborhood so we can stop renting.
P.S. If you ever make it to the panhandle I'll meet ya and buy you any beer of your choice.

That is priority one. Get the house and start building equity.
BTW, my wife likes the Acadia too. They just did a comparo of the Acadia, MDX and CX-9. They gave 1st to the CX-9, then MDX then Acadia.
Thanks for the invite...I will look you up for sure.

I see your comment about comparing the Acadia, MDX, and CX-9, so I went to compare them and the first item I look at is cargo space and it appears the acadia still has the most? Second, I look at the MPG and they all seem to compare.
Does anyone know what I should compare the Acadia to if my first priority is cargo space and my second is MPG? Thanks!

IMO, the Acadia would be your best choice unless you need people hauling to which a minivan would be more suited.
MPG on the Acadia is pretty good in this segment. Check out the Toyota Sequoia for more cargo space but 10 - 15% less efficiency.

GO with a van all the way, as they still have more space for people OR cargo and better mileage. DCX is making incredible deals on the 2007 Chrysler and Dodge vans right now as the all new models are coming out for 2008.

I forgot to mention I do not want a mini-van and I do need 7-8 passenger seating for when I am not using it as cargo space. Which is why I am liking the Acadia since it is close to the mini van as far as seating and cargo. I just wanted to make sure I am looking at all my SUV/CUV options before spending so much on the Acadia (since no special incentives now). Thanks!

The closest other CUV to an Acadia, other than an Enclave or Outlook, which I comparison shopped was the Mazda CX9. The Acadia definitely has more cargo room with the 3rd row up or down and feels more spacious inside. Overall I think the Acadia is an excellent alternative to a minivan and I have not missed my Sienna at all since trading it in for my Acadia

Thanks for the input! I appreciate it. I have looked at the others you mentioned, and I agree, it is the Acadia for me.
