The Enslave needs to look less fatty than the current one. A sharp, athletic stance would be great.

The existing Enclave is about a decade old and still looks pretty up-to-date. Looks like they are wisely taking the cautious route with the new one.

I think the Chevrolet Traverse also looks fatty and needs a sharp, athletic stance.

I absolutely agree. The fatty look is produced by a body that appears too big for the track. The Acadia was a huge leap in the right direction.

I really have to wonder why Cadillac did the XT5 off the Equinox-to-be platform instead of using this larger size for the XT5, but putting it at the XT5's price point.

Anyone else see a healthy among of Volvo in the camo face?

Looks like another winner for GM though...they're really on a role.

Actually, the XT5 is on the C1XX (aka "Chi") platform, which it shares with the new Acadia and the upcoming new midsize Chevy crossover. The stretched version of that platform will underpin the Traverse and Enclave.

The Equinox/Terrain will be on the D2XX platform, shared with the Buick Envision, Cruze, Astra, etc.

Funny how by the time now even non Opel derived Buicks have the same design language the two brands will be separated....
