    The Acadia Denali pictured in the article is a joke. It is nothing but a no-go showboat consisting of gingerbread trim only and a "cheapening" of the Denali nameplate. Denali's are known and loved for their larger engine option and the Acadia version is equippped with the same, relatively underpowered (for a 5000 lb. vehicle) 3.9 liter DOHC V-6 as the rest of the Lambda models. If searching for a used Lambda vehicle, be sure and avoid the '08 models wich have a fatal timing chain stretching issue that GM refuses to issue a recall for and foolishly thinks they can "fix" by adjusting the oil change interval notification in the on-board OLM. Caveat emptor !
