I was hoping for power closer to the 287 hp we were told was on the Buick Enclave but I guess it's pretty good for 87 octane and the mileage figures seem decent.

This thing is approaching 5,000 lbs!

The gas mileage is good concerning the weight I agree. But 267 hp and even less torque is not going to feel very 'brisk' when trying to move around almost 5000 lbs.

The V6 Saturn Vue has only 25 less hp and torque that is almost the same, yet has more than 1,000 less to move around.

It looks good, just I was expecting a little more power or a lot less weight. I was thinking maybe slightly over 4,000 lbs..putting it in the Envoy/Trailblazer weight class.

Well, the X5 3.0 is not that much lighter and feels amazingly peppy with it's 225hp 3.0L inline-six....

But then again, BMWs have always felt quicker and more powerful than their (probably conservative) power ratings.

The cargo volume could be a HUGE selling point considering that GM never has really had a vehicle like this that was/is affordable and has fold-flat seats.

let's cut to the chase.....this vehicle in some cases is a minivan in drag. some will cross shop this with some of the vans.

the 119 inch wheelbase gives it away. Not a bad thing, but the weight of this is about 3-500 pounds over some of the competitors minivans, which have more room.

At the same time, I'm guessing they overbuilt the chassis so it is strong. It would have been nice if they could have kept 3-500 pounds of the weight off and given back 2-3 mpg. The Freestyle is lighter but not as cavernous, I don't think. The GM looks much better.

But that's really grasping for something negative. They are a LOT lighter than that pig Audi Q7.

Conspiracy theory....chevy should have gotten this vehicle too. Maybe GM didn't want it in chevy showrooms because it would likely steal all sorts of 07 Tahoe sales!

also keep in mind... someone's (some GM brand) gotta have a minivan that actually looks like a minivan - that market isn't going to just vanish.

So is the Enclave/Outlook/Acadia platform all-new? Or just a revised U-body, W-body or G-body or something?

Um, these are on Lambda.

Ok..so Lambda is an all-new platform? Haven't read much about it..I assume it's FWD w/ AWD optional? Not a rehash of an older GM FWD platform?

That's where Chevy's and GMC's Lambda minivan comes in.

The Outlook is great and I can't wait until dealers get it so I can buy one. Any word on prices?

GMC will not have a minivan. That would be the death of the division.

Last reported Chevrolet and GMC will receive the Lambda minivans... Saturn's Relay replacement was cancelled.

And no... it would not be the death of GMC... the minivan may not sell great, but it wouldn't hurt GMC. It's also the only way to provide Buick-Pontiac-GMC dealers with a minivan without hurting Buick or Pontiac's image.

God help me, but I have no problem with a well-executed Buick minivan. Terrazas seem to do very well around here and look mighty sharp if I may say so.

I actually agree... I've been an advocate for the Terraza from the beginning. If any GM brand should have a Town-n-Country competitor, it should be Buick. And yes, it's selling better than expected.

Agreed, I see more Terrazas then any other CSV. Uplanders being second and catching up fast, Relays being 3rd and I've seen two Montana CSVs ever.

The interior of the Terraza is very attractive looking. It may not be the best van out there as far as utility or performance is concerned, but it definately has one of the nicest interiors and a fairly handsome exterior. In the luxury class, the utility of the vehicle becomes secondary. See also BMW X5.
