The Enclave and Acadia are more alike than different. I am trying to determine what is different between the two.

Differences:

Exterior styling is the first thing noticed that is different. Interior styling is also clearly different.

Enclave 19" wheels have Michelins, while the Acadia has Goodyear Eagles.

Heads up display is available on the Acadia, but not the Enclave.

Backup camera is available on the Enclave, but not the Acadia.

Enclave has quiet tuning. I am not sure exactly how this differs from the Acadia, so someone please add some details.


Please add to the list. Let's see how complete a list we can create.

Power tilt/telescoping wheel with memory setting.

Articulating HID headlights.

Someone posted that since the Enclave is more curvacious, a 4'x8' sheet of plywood will not fit in the back end - it is too narrow.

And it has easy exit driver seat on the CXL. And is that where when you open the driver door the seat lowers a little to get out easier?

Typically when there is a feature like this the seat slides all the way back to make exit easier. It may also include lowering the seat, but I am not certain.

And this feature is on the Acadia SLT2, so it can't be counted as a difference between
the Acadia and the Enclave.

Cloth wrapped interior garnish
Soft IP
New turnsignal lever, rear wiper moves to center console
Best looking color for interior lighting (blue/green)
The quiet tuning includes
Thicker, laminated windshield
Thicker side window glass
Triple sealed doors
Almost all the sound deadener material is 1.5 times thicker on the Enclave then Acadia / Outlook

The rear end is too narrow for a 4x8 sheet of plywood, it curves in at the liftgate.

Cloth Wrapped garnish just means that the parts have a layer of foam and then fabric over them rather than being hard plastic. All the upper garnish is soft.
