I've seen a few fellow SC's on the road and in parking lots. Just learning how to easily tell the difference between trim levels. Here's a few things I've noticed:
1) Premium and Limited have color coded door handles. SE and SEL's are black.
2) Limited has a black chrome grill with a IR sensor protector.
3) AWD on the Premium and Limited have HTRAC and 2.5T on the tailgate.
4) SE's don't have roof rails.
5) SE and SEL's have single headlight with trun signal underneath. Premiums and Limited has a chevron turn signal and 4 lamps per side for lights.

What else quickly tells you what trim level SC you're meeting?

I go by wheels, currently limited has unique wheels, I haven't seen any other SC on the road with aftermarket wheels. On the other hand, F150, RAM, Tacomas etc I see half of them run some form of aftermarket wheels, method, fuel are the most common.

So the lack of aftermarket wheel enthusiasm is proof that SC is not a truck

3) All AWDs have the HTRAC badge regardless of trim level
4) SELs w/o the activity package also don’t have roof rails.

SE and SEL w/o activity are probably the hardest to tell from the exterior, not sure if there are any obvious visible differences.

The obvious difference is the SEL has side mirror turn signal lights and the SE does not. Kind of hard to see though.

It's way easier in Canada ... 20" wheels ... Ultimate. 18", Preferred or Trend. Only way to tell the Trend from the Preferred is to see inside it - Trend gets the digital dash, base Preferred only gets the analogue cluster.

@soldthetaco - there are indeed aftermarket wheels out there. Lots of them posted on the forum! I have a set myself. :)
