Interesting. It appears to be an entirely different concept than today's Acadia.

It's shorter lengthwise, taller vertically, and is blockier than the current car.

Looks like an overgrown Terrain to me.

To be honest, the first thing I thought of when I saw the rear doors curve up in the pictures is this:

Hopefully it isn't as bone-crushingly ugly as that, though.

Plot twist: This is a 2nd gen Envoy. ;)

We can dream right? :lmao:

Very interesting. If you compare the profile view, the XT5 has a more sloping roof than the Acadia. Are we sure this isn't based on the Australian Trailblazer?


I'm definitely getting a Grand Cherokee vibe here.

Side mirrors are definitely different

A couple of other thoughts....
1) Does anybody else find it odd that the sensors are only on the Rear wheels? If it was AWD, I would think they would be on all the wheels, and only on the fronts if FWD.
2)

anybody notice the air box is on the passenger side, just like the Colorado?

I like the proportions. More SUV like than minivan, the Acadia has always been my favorite of the three.
