    Really wish you could program the lift gate to the exact height you want. Our 1950s ranch has a garage that's only 10 block high and even at 3/4 height the garage door must be closed to open the hatch and it just barely clears the ceiling. Really nice feature tho, glad we went with the equinox.
    so many GM vehicles in my household my driveway looks like a used car lot

    Good add, demonstrates a product differentiating feature. GM needs more of these types of adds for all their vehicles.

    These are pretty damn good ads IMHO. The one with the tetris like game in the Traverse is also excellent.

    I can testify that an Equinox can hold four football guys suited up for a photo shoot.

    Also four saddle bronc riders, four bronc saddles and luggage fits, as well.

    (Of course, my old Suburban has been stuffed with twice that plus towed four horses in 110 degree heat without complaining.)

    This is how the ads should be, showing how the product is better.

    Great commercials...What took them so long?!

    GM, brings these types of commercials out when you launch the vehicles and do not stop. People need to be taught how GM vehicles are actually much better in many ways than the Japanese and Euro offerings. They really are, but people still do not think so. Your job to educate them!

    All this could be solved if you could swing open the gate as well. Never understood why that feature went away.

    I wondered what the hell this feature was for. It's in my X5 and it was in a Terrain I rode in to Ohio last week.

    the lift gate one shows a feature most I assume do not know about OR that the 'NOX offers but the AD it self IMHO does NOT "grab in anyway and make you want to watch it unlike the Impala AD
    IMHO

    Adds a great deal of cost.
    Adds a great deal of weight.
    Complexity greatly increases likelyhood of a malfunction.
    Fit and finish are much poorer.

    Are they seriously thinking that we are worried about scratching the garage door if the liftgate is too high?
