After coming out of its government scripted bankruptcy, General Motors reduced its brands to just Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC. That move killed a lot of rebadging between GM brands but some product overlap still exists.

According to GMI, the Detroit automaker is doing all it can to refrain from rebadging and for that reason has decided to kill the next-generation Lambda-based GMC Acadia crossover.

The GMC Acadia launched in 2006 alongside other Lambda-platform based vehicles including the Buick Enclave, Saturn Outlook and the Chevrolet Traverse.

Why not keep the Acadia instead of the Enclave? Well, the Buick Enclave’s tremendous sales success has give priority to the more luxurious versions of the two Lambda crossovers.
