As much as most other GMCs look classy and understated, the Acadia has some fussy styling elements that muddle what is otherwise a very nice large crossover.
The big Acadia has more third-row and cargo space than the larger GMC Yukon, thanks in part to its front-wheel-drive architecture, unibody design, and longer wheelbase than its more traditional sibling. A nice, quiet interior will keep families happy, and a long list of standard and available features at prices on par with competitors from Toyota, Ford, Dodge, and Honda mean the Acadia is a reasonable value, too.
Other than the styling, the Acadia’s only minor flaw is the powertrain, which offers lower fuel economy and performance than one might expect from a large SUV. In fact, its combined EPA rating is just one mpg higher than the aforementioned Yukon, which comes with a 5.3L V-8. However, it’s a larger vehicle than any in its class, and it offers up to 5,200 pounds of towing capacity, which eclipses all competitors except the rear-drive–biased Dodge Durango.
With many other options on the market (including very nice choices from its Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave stablemates), the Acadia’s primary trump card is its interior space and long list of luxury features. However, many families prioritize space above all else, and for them, the Acadia is excellent.
