Default Saturn Outlook = GMC Acadia Redesign

Hey folks,

I just saw this on Autoblog and thought I'd share...

GM appears to repurpose Saturn Outlook parts on new Acadia

Quote:
Both vehicles seem to share the same wrap-around rear glass, back hatch, tail light openings and exaggerated, squared-off fender arches.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

This should come as a surprise to no one - they're both Lambdas, after all.

2008 Outlook XE
Default Re: Saturn Outlook = GMC Acadia Redesign

Jeeez I won't able to tell the diff. btwn our Outlooks, and those overpriced/overated Acadia's. The wrap'round is the prominent diff. when cruising down the road ! The 'immature' version of the Outlook --equinox-- is not so bad, more squared off, and of course compact too !

imho doug c

I think I would still buy an Outlook. Gotta stay loyal to Saturn. With the plans of a 2nd kid in the works the Vue may not be able to cut it with 2 kids and 2 dogs. Outlook!!!!!!

Default Re: Saturn Outlook = GMC Acadia Redesign

Hoagrod , Outlook can handle all that and more, just stay away from that dealer you bought your Vue from, just asking for bad news with them, based on your Vue's history. I love both my Saturn's little and big brother, get a good one and you'll be happy too. BTW my Outlooks a 2010 , from what I've seen stay away from the earlier ones. Head over to saturnoutlookforum.net for info and insight if you go that way.

2006 VUE Red Line
Default Re: Saturn Outlook = GMC Acadia Redesign

Well that particular dealer doesn't really sell to many saturns as it is, but yes I am staying away from them.

I was kind of wondering about what year Outlook to look into. Every time I see one on the road it makes me smile, they're a great looking vehicle.
