I have no experience with GMC vehicles, mostly was driving Honda/Toyota/Mazda.
However, the new for 2020 Acadia trim AT4 looks closer to what I think Honda could've done with Passport at least as one trim option.

It is AT4 and therefore "Exclusive AT4 17" wheels with all-terrain tires"

So far, I'm sitting and waiting. Costco Auto could not find me any options to get Passport and competition becomes more interesing.

Good find, Sib. It's as if GMC saw the Passport and quickly got the AT4 trim ready for the 2020 Acadia release. All Passport needs is a special 17" wheel/tire combo and people would be happy.

I'd be happy even with 18" :)

I do, however, like that in Acadia the head unit screen is recessed into the dash. I'm not crazy with the way Honda did it in current generation of Pilot/Passport. It is still better than standing on top of the dash, like a lot of cars have these days, but not the best, in my opinion.

I’ve considered Acadia Denali from time to time, but just can’t get past the reputation for unreliability.

It’s a good looking vehicle, though....

Immediate Turn-on: 17"or 18" wheels, Exterior and interior styling.
Immediate turn-off: Don't need third row seating.
Question: What is overall length? The Passport is at 190.5".

GM reliability is the real issue. I worked with folks that bought GM vehicles. The problems started at about 50k.

One other advantage the Passport has over the Acadia when we talk about off-pavement stuff is ground clearance. Passport AWD is 8.1", Acadia is 7.2" (assume the AT4 is the same, that number is for 2019, no AT4 until 2020), and the Outback, for comparison is 8.7". So unless the AT4 is lifted, Honda could easily respond to the AT4 by putting some decent wheels on the Passport.
