That is an option in the Buick Enclave, none of the others have turning headlights.

Ryan: the last time I looked she was getting around 20 doing all kinds of driving around town. I will try to remember to check tonight.

As for the shifting while towing. This is one of the reasons I recommended the dealer installed tow package. The Tow/Haul button affects the shift points. I know some of you probably have late model trucks and SUVs with this option. The button usually keeps the truck from shifting into overdrive too often while towing. It also keeps the engine in the meat of the power when you need it. Ex: traveling around 45mph it will hold a higher rpm instead of shifting up, allowing you to accelerate easily without a downshift when grandma finally gets out of your way.
My Acadia does not have this option. I only assume it does the same thing as all other GM vehicles. If I was ordering one I definitely would get the option.

I was really trying to encourage the wifey to get this instead of the new Tahoe. In the end, she just felt the Hoe was a little better fit for us. Ironically, the fuel mileage between the two vehicles is negligable at best.

No rumor about it... I need to unload mine quick, so I can get into the lovely SoCal housing market!

Isn't this really a blazer replacement?

If so, after renting many different 4x4's to drive in the snow the Blazer (and other GM derivatives) were on the bottom of my list for snow performance. Hopefully this vehicle has better slippery road performance.
