2016 GMC Acadia Earns Five-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The 2016 GMC Acadia SUV earned the top five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2016 Acadia earned five stars in the front and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2016 Acadia, which will arrive at GMC dealerships this summer.

The rating also applies to the 2016 GMC Acadia Denali.

Standard safety features include a front center airbag that deploys between the passenger and driver in the event of a crash, antilock brakes and electronic stability control.

Forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning are standard on Acadia Denali and optional on SLT-1 and SLT-2 models. Side blind-zone alert and cross-traffic alert are standard on Acadia Denali and SLT-2 and optional on SLT-1.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2016 Acadia, which is a carryover vehicle with minimal changes. The 2015 Acadia earned "good" scores in all Institute crash tests.

Key Acadia competitors include the Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers should note that the 2016 Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander have not been rated by NHTSA.
