Since the Enclave is 2008 MY, they maybe prioritizing 2007 MY Acadia/Outlook orders before entering Enclave orders.zman said:My salesman made it sound like placing the order was a done deal once that is resolved. He did tell me to expect a longer delivery time on the Enclave, 10-12 weeks rather than the 6-8 on the Acadia. Maybe this is a sign that the order won't be entered for awhile. I never thought of that possibility.
Wow. I agree 100%, I could have written that statement. We actually chose the Cocoa due to the lower body being a fairly close match to the main color, plus we do not live on a dirt road. We also based our choice on the availability of the Cashmere interior. We know we like the Cocoa/Cashmere combination due to the vehicle at our autoshow. I wasn't sure I would like the Cashmere with some of the other color choices.raftdoc said:We struggled with the color choice. We live on a gravel road, so our cars seem to be perpetually dirty. Hence we have chosen Pewter and Silver Birch on the two previous vehicles as they hide dirt better. The either very dark or very light colors show the dirt more. The two tone paint pattern on the Enclave creates some difficulty in this regard. We're not especially crazy about the more contrasty combinations, but those that aren't this way are either the darker or lighter colors or were of delayed availability( my wife will have to rent a car by the month until the Enclave arrives). We settled on the Gold Mist, even though it uses the dark accent on the lower body, and will likely get the integrated assist steps as they will keep some of the dirt off of this area. Our color choice was also influenced by our strong preference of the Cashmere interior over the other choices. My prediction is that solid color paint choices will become available on future model years, as I don't think we're alone on our ambivalence about the two tone treatment.
