The GMC Acadia may be a harbinger of refined, fuel-efficient vehicles that offer the utility of a big SUV. The Acadia is a crossover SUV, meaning it looks like a truck but it’s built like a car. Crossovers have been gaining in popularity because they make so much sense for so many families, but what sets the Acadia apart is its size: It’s big, similar in size to the GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe, inside and out. It can seat eight. And it can carry a lot of cargo. Yet it offers a fuel economy advantage of three-five miles per gallon over a Yukon, benefits of its lighter weight and more efficient engine.
We’ve found the Acadia delivers what most people like about full-size SUVs. For starters, it’s big and roomy. The driver sits high off the ground and benefits from that commanding view down the road that many like. Features like rear-seat DVD entertainment make it a good choice for families.
The only places where the Acadia falls short of truck-based SUVs is in heavy-duty towing or for slogging through military-grade muck. Properly equipped, the GMC Acadia can tow 4,500 pound, while a Yukon is rated to pull 7,500 pounds or more. Based on the Silverado pickup, the Yukon can handle rugged terrain. The Acadia offers all-wheel drive for capability in stormy or snowy weather and it’s fine for unpaved roads. That’s plenty of capability for most people.
