2017 GMC Acadia Review
Pros & Cons
- Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any kind of driving situation
- Excellent performance from the optional V6 engine
- Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
- Modern onboard technology keeps you connected
- Even the priciest trim levels don't feel very luxurious
- Third-row seats are now far less accommodating than in previous Acadia
Which Acadia does Edmunds recommend?
If you desire maximum passenger capacity and can do without some of the latest features offered on Acadia, the base SL trim has plenty of room and plenty of basic amenities. For a more full-featured vehicle, the SLE2 trim with the optional V6 engine and the Driver Alert package is a good place to start. Available options abound, but realize that when equipped, the price will quickly get into luxury SUV territory.
