They are starting to pop up here in metro-Detroit. That's just one that I've saw in the last day. I've seen about 3 or 4 traveling in the area. This was the LTZ model. Really sharp looking, but ....honestly it looks small compared to other Lambda's. Not sure why that is but on the road and in person the Outlooks looks MUCH larger.

Here are a few more pics from GM.

The two-tone paint is slimming perhaps? The Traverse is the largest Lambda, isn't it..longer behind the rear axle I thought...

Oh it is longer by I believe 2 or 3 inches but it sure does look small. Perhaps it's the "swoop" on the rear fender that does it? The grille also makes the front seem smaller than it really is.

I think the back is horrendous.

It turns out the rear cargo area increase is not limited to the Traverse. The 2009 Enclave gets more cu ft, too.

It's so obvious that this was rushed to the market. What a hack job.

I saw a silver Traverse being filmed for a commercial in Lower Manhattan about 3 weeks ago. It looked great.

The rear / tailights definitley have shades of Camaro.

In the first pic, I'm not sure which rear looks worse, the Traverse's or the Esteem's.

I actually like the Traverse alot including the back. Although the looker of them all in the Buick Enclave. A young good looking lady my son works with even wants an Enclave and she is only 35 her husband said to much money. They got an Uplander instead.

Thought GM was getting away from the slight design-mod, rebadge idea?

They have...none of the 4 Lambdas are rebadges...all have different sheetmetal (except roof panels?) and interiors..

Styling wise, my favorites are the Arcadia and Enclave...saw a gorgeous dark red Enclave at the grocery this afternoon...

Some friends of mine are 38 (hubby) and 30 (wife), they have a TrailBlazer and a Rendevous..just traded the Rendevous on an Enclave last week. Sadly, they are the only couple I know in my age range that own all domestics.

I think it's the ugliest Lambda that currently exists, and it's pricetag reflects it pretty well.

So far, it looks (to me) like the fleet version of what was an awesome trio.

The back is especially ugly and the front looks generic.

I always liked the Outlook the best, and it will be the one to get the ax, which is understandable since it doesn't fit with what Saturn was. I don't think this Traverse is that bad looking, in fact, I like the slightly "retro" look of the V'd back glass and taillamp shape. To me, the weakest part of the design is the quarter glass kick-up, it is too close to the Enclave, imo.

Lutz said none of the lambdas are going away.

i agree, the saturn is the best. the saturn is the one i would get if i got a lambada.

that said, the traverse is nice enough that it improves what chevy is selling.

regardless of how it sells, it will still be a new entry for chevy and will sell more units then last year, because it wasnt on sale last year...

all and all, it shouldnt steal sales from the other 3... and might steal production from the discounted GMT900's...

so all and all i think it will be good, this will be the best selling lambda by far, and its looks wont have anything to do with it... it's just what the market wants and chevy will capitalize on it...
