My neighbor and myself each ordered an 08 Acadia in early May. Both vehicles have been built, vin numbers received. Both vehicles are at shipping plant, MSRP same as 07.

Are there any differences between the 07 and 08 Acadia? Or is it the exact same vehicle?
I dont believe the Acadia was tested by IIHS. True?

The only difference is, one color was dropped and another added. Also a console is available for the 2nd row captain seats, but not until sometime in August.
Here is the link http://www.gmfleet.com/ first you put your mouse over fleet on the very left then you put the mouse over Vehicle info/ details and then click on online order guide, then in the new window click 2008 and cars/light trucks(the first) then click gmc and then in the upper right hand corner click the dropdown button and click acadia! then click new for 2008, there is going to be new color a second row console.
#4 of 58 2008 Acadia Conquest Rebates

While I was negotiating prices for a new 2008 Acadia, the salesperson told me that the $1000 Conquest rebate that was available for the 2007 model is currently not available for the 2008 model. Is this true?

Looks true according to Edmunds, at least for my zip code - only good for 2007 models.

I had to order an 08 because an 07 couldn't be found with the options I wanted on an Acadia ST1 AWD. The only difference I could see was that they changed the Cargo Package id from PDC to PDM and they jacked the price up several 100. We ordered ours on May 26 and it arrived July 5, two days before we left on a trip. I was amazed that I was able to put 95% of what would fit behind the second row seats in my Dodge Grand Caravan fit behind the second row seats in the 2008 Acadia. We did just under 700 miles in a week. The ride was very comfortable and the handling was good. The first 500 miles I kept it at 55 or less. On the ride back we got about 20.5 miles per gallon. With about 40% of those miles between 65 and 70 mph towards the end of the trip. The ride back was a around 230 miles. I liked the higher seating for visiblity and the heads up display. My wife going thru the XM radio stations and the station id showed up for about 3 to 5 seconds on the heads up display while I was driving so I never had to look down at the radio to see what station she had on. We were both pleased with the ride, handling, and features.

#8 of 58 08 Acadia pricing and delivery

I have an 08 Acadia, it was delivered last monday. The Conquest cash is $500. through the end of the month. The interior carpet has changed to the color of seats ordered, not black as on the 07.
Very very happy with the quality, hopefully it will outrun the Highlander. I have had both and the Acadia is far superior in every way.

I would be interested in any comments regarding the center console available on the '08. Does it fold down, etc...
Also, as a rule of thumb, should I expect to pay closer to MSRP now for an '08 than I would an '07. This will be my 1st new car buying experience.
