How about the all new Acadia? 

http://www.gmc.com/suvs/choose-your-acadia-mid-size-suv.html#

They did an awesome job on that, not sure what went wrong with the Terrain? 

Kids,
We replaced our Enclave with an 2017 Acadia Denali. I just couldn't wait for the new Enclave any longer and my wife didn't want 2016/2017 Enclave as she thought they looked too much like what she already had. We realized that is was smaller and inside and out but for our family it has worked out so far. We really like the updated tech on 17 vs our 08 and the 16/17 Enclave.

On the Equinox, Terrain, Traverse. I think all three look great in their own way.

The Equinox looks much better than the previous Gen.

The Terrain was a like a box on wheels to me but I still liked it better than the Equinox. The 18 reminds me more of a Buick (in- between the Envision and the Encore). More rounded shape looks better 

The Traverse looks stunning inside and out. I wonder if the LT and other trims will look as nice as the Premier and the High Country that were shown. I wonder if the Acadia will receive any updates for 2018 to match the Traverse (Torque Vectoring AWD only offered on All Terrain), power folding third row.

Really makes me wonder what is in store for the Enclave.... and how much it will cost

Hopefully the new Acadia will get the 9 speed.

Power lift gate, or power hands free lift gate which opens when the key is in your pocket or hand and you kick your foot under the bumper.  I doubt that any other model can not be equipped with at least a power lift gate.

I will not buy the first 2 model year of any of them. I came over from an 09 Traverse LTZ so i learned my lesson. I stole a 15 Enclave Premium Used with 5000 miles that i like very much. So i'm set for a good while.

My wife really liked the XT5 but we still need the third row on occasion. The other thing I didn't like was you couldn't get the reconfigurable gauges on the non Platinum editions. We have the reconfigurable gauges on our Acadia Denali. Speaking of gauges I don't see that they are reconfigurable ones in the pics of the High Country or Premier editions of the Traverses either...

Very nice Enclave! We have the White Opel version with the same wheels. Didn't think I would ever buy a white vehicle, but the Enclave looks great in white.

  I have owned 2 Enclaves, the last being a 2013. It was time to trade but the new Enclave was out dated, no different than my 2013. I ended up with a 2017 XT5 , rally like the car , only draw back it only seats 5.

Its different but not hard to get use to. Like the 8 speed tranny and the MPG. I drove the Envision but liked the XT5 better, the Caddy is a priced close to the Envision if you get middle price package . The XT5 is quite a step above the Envision. Next car a Enclave will be at the top of my list if the new one has all the bells and whistles the XT 5 has.

currently considering the Envision since it would be a step up from my Terrain.
