Actually it is the same platform. Buick added different glass, more sound insulation, etc to make their "Quiet Tuning" but they are all built on the same platform.

They are all the Lambda platform. That is fact, fact, fact. The sheetmetal may be different, the suspensions may be tuned differently, the interiors may be different, but they are indeed the same PLATFORM.

THESE ARE OPINIONS FROM WRITERS....I DIDN'T SEE ANY QUOTES FROM ANYONE FROM GM....AS YOU CAN SEE THE ACADIA AND THE OUTLOOK HAVE THE SAME EXACT BODY STYLE, HENCE, BEING BUILT IN SAME PLANT....THE BODY STYLE OF THE ENCLAVE IS 100% DIFFERENT, HENCE BEING BUILT IN A DIFF PLANT. YOU CAN'T TRUST THE OPINION OF WIKEPEDIA.

Did you know that the Enclave is the quietest car made. It beats every other car - GM, Ford, Honda, Toyota, etc. It will be used in an ad campaign shortly. :blob:

But I do not like the covers on the sun roofs and no Active head rests just in case I forgot to mention that.

while active headrests* minimise the chances of whiplash.

* Only available on CDX and CDX+.
