Angular Rear Exterior View - 2010 GMC Acadia FWD 4-door SLT1Enlarge Photo
A smart car-shopping tip you should keep in your back pocket for life: many manufacturers build several versions of the same car under different names. When one of them is good, they're all good. But that doesn't mean they're all selling well. General Motors' Lambda platform SUVs are a great example. The Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia are all pretty close to being the same car, and it's a very good one. With minivan practicality, SUV towing and style, and sedan driving dynamics, they strike an outstanding balance that makes them versatile family haulers. The Enclave and Traverse are selling well. The Acadia, for some reason, is not. So GM is offering it with 60 months of interest-free payments, or a $2,000 rebate -- a deal you won't find on the Traverse or Enclave.
