Could be better.... Update
UPDATE I now have ~7000 miles on my SLT2 FWD. I was pretty critical of the transmission in my first review. Well it has improved quite a bit. Most modern transmissions have the ability to learn. The 2-3 shift is the main concern & is the most inconsistent but it is now generally acceptable. Most people wouldn’t notice the issues I notice as most of my engineering life concerned automatic transmissions. I hope GM continues to review customer feedback and offers updates as they have in the past. During the first included oil change service, I asked the service agent if there is a service bulletin for the incredibly loud CHIME volume for the seatbelt, key left in car & tail gate open warning. This complaint is most common with the Bose Entertainment system. Even with the chime volume setting at the lowest level, it is still obnoxious. I did find a work around for the “key left in the vehicle” warning (when my car is in my garage I usually leave the key fob in the console) & that was to open the back door before the driver’s door. Apparently, the system only cares when opening the driver’s door. I would like GM to provide a way to further lower volume or even change the tone. It should not assault ones ears. The entertainment controls could be better. When in radio screen mode, I should be able to see the presets at the bottom of the screen all the time. It doesn't. If I am listening to the radio & the screen is in HOME mode & I touch the RADIO icon, the channel changes. Really?? Where’s the logic in that? I am still impressed with the performance, handling & braking of the Acadia. It has a sophisticated rear suspension design. I beat a new Honda Pilot with it a few weeks back, so it scoots pretty good. OK I am a bit nitpicky, but most of the things I have complained about are easily fixed & shouldn’t be there in the first place, or could be configurable in the driver settings. If I could, I’d give the Acadia SLT2 a 3.5. With some attention to details and fixes it could easily be a 4.5. So I will give it a 4. More later….. Initial review.... My 3.6L/6T70 SLT2 FWD Acadia handles better than I expected. I just came out of a 2008 Pontiac Torrent GXP which handled pretty good for a non sports car. I wanted to buy another Pontiac, but we all know that is not possible. So I ended up buying the Acadia. I have only driven GM vehicles for 40 years and considered the new Volvo XC60 & the BMW X3. The worst thing about the 2018 GMC Acadia is the 6T70 transmission. After 1500 miles, it still doesn't know how to shift consistently. My 2008 GXP was very good, so how did GM screw up a 10 year old design? Some 2-3 shifts have a triple feel to them (Initial feel, sag & an end bump). Terrible. Then there is a " bad shift in a turn" phenomenon. The 2-3 is really saggy. GMC Should fix this. I also found the seats to be narrower in the Acadia as compared to the buckets in the Pontiac which had a narrower chassis. I was shocked to learn that the Acadia had few & less small places to put things than my smaller Pontiac Torrent. Where is the technical memory for these kinds of things? And that damn chime is so loud with the Bose entertainment system. I have the chime volume turned all the way down & it still assaults my deaf old man ears. Give me the option to use a different sound like the tinkle used for the "check back seat" warning and to turn it down some more. It had 2 body fit issues. First, the tailgate fit very badly. Down at the driver side bottom edge, it stood very proud of the tail light. I don't know how it got out of the factory that way & wonder why it was delivered to me that way. I loosened the 2 bolts on the roof hinge & was able to correct it. The hood also fit badly. I played with the rubber snubbers on both sides to get it to look more symmetrical. Inside, the drawer that pulls open from the rear of the armrest wouldn't open because it runs into the raised lip of the optional GMC floormats I ordered. Doesn't any GM engineer check this stuff? I removed the drawer & took a hacksaw to the bottom lip on the drawer. Since it is at the bottom, no one can see what I did. It now clears the floormat. Lastly, I have to mention the GMC dealer in Western Ann Arbor on Jackson Rd. They were terrible. They forgot my deposit, screwed up the registration and failed to give me the proof of insurance after talking to my insurance company. Then they charged $210 for paper work! And no one would call me back after leaving messages. I guess they figured they had my money. I even called their Corporate Experience Mngr., and she promised to call me back that day & never did. 4 days later, I emailed her only to get more promises but no action. I'll never go to that dealer again. Being a "GM" guy that worked at the company for 34 years, this was a difficult review to write.
Big Blue
My wife named our new Acadia SLT Big Blue because of the Sky Blue exterior paint, which she loves, and because he, it's a boy, is bigger than the mid sized car she had been driving. However, for a three row seater the size is perfect for us. Spacious interior and super ride and handling. The 3.6L V-6 is normally aspirated, which is a plus for me, and makes more horsepower and torque than the competition. In addition, our real world fuel economy is significantly better than EPA estimates. We do live in the flat Midwest, but regularly get 28 mpg at 75 mph on a trip. I've actually achieved 30 plus on shorter trips when not exceeding 60. Infotainment system is easy to use and since it has Android Auto (or Apple Car Play if you have an iPhone) there was no need for us to buy the optional navigation system; just plug your phone into one of the many USB ports and map is displayed on the touchscreen. We bought it new and got a fantastic deal. So far no complaints and anticipate keeping for a long time.
1st Special Order to Replace 2012 Acadia
My wife fell in love with the new model before I did. I miss the heads up display and rear cargo room. She likes the better visibilty and handling which I came around to quickly. I wanted the rare black with tan interior so I ordered it. We picked up on thrs and drove to FL on friday. Mileage is awesome compared to old model b/c you can select various modes 2wd vs AWD. The old was permanent AWD. I got 13mpg on my 2012 and I am getting 18mpg in AWD but hey its winter in IN. 2wd will get you 26-28 depends ob weight, speed, etc. but you trade a little wheel spin up front and understeer. I ordered it loaded with every option so I recommend the weathertech mats which do not interfere with anything like others mentioned. The front rear and satellite cameras are awesome for backing up blindly. This 3.6 has more power and it stops better than you would think. It handles like a dream with stabilitrack lane mgt, crash avoidance, and load leveling. I like it alot and so does the wife. I plan to keep this one for a long time. One small nuissance is an occasional shift delay like others have mentioned but I drive hard and apply more fuel so this rarely happens.

2018 GMC Terrain

GMC Acadia vs. GMC Terrain

The GMC Acadia and the GMC Terrain are different-size tools for similar jobs. The Acadia has three rows and offers seating for up to seven passengers, while the Terrain has two rows and seating for five. The Terrain is less expensive. And like the Acadia, it's a bit more upscale than the norm. But if you've got a bigger family, you'll want to start with the Acadia.

GMC Acadia vs. Chevrolet Traverse

The GMC Acadia and the Chevrolet Traverse are as closely matched as it gets. They are mechanically related, so both are available with the same V6 engine and both offer three rows of seating. If you're willing to give up a bit of the luxury experience that comes with owning an Acadia, the Traverse offers a similarly comfortable one, and it's a little bigger inside, too.

GMC Acadia vs. Ford Explorer

While the Ford Explorer may not seem like an outright luxury vehicle, it has a pretty big catalog of available equipment that evens the score between these two three-row crossovers. A high-tech, easy-to-use infotainment system and a spacious interior that's on par with the Acadia's make the Explorer competitive in the class. The Explorer is also more entertaining to drive, especially in the available Sport trim level that has a turbocharged V6 engine.

2018 GMC Acadia video

SPEAKER: I'm Edmund's editor Josh Sadlier and this is a rundown of the features you'll find in the 2018 GMC Acadia. The Acadia is a smaller, lighter SUV that gives up some passenger space compared to its rivals but, in return, you get improved fuel economy and a more enjoyable driving experience. The SLE2 is the best bang for your buck. It's reasonably priced and it adds a power lift gate, powered driver's seat, and heated front seats. We also think it's worth checking the box for the V6 engine. You'll appreciate its superior performance when you're carrying passengers or towing. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert and rear parking sensors are available with the driver alert one package, which we also recommend. The rear cargo area has a wide, unobstructed cargo floor when you fold the third row, while remote release handles make it easy to fold the second row. There are two USB ports for second row passengers and a single port for the third row. Wireless charging and mobile Wi-Fi are also available. GMC's infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and it's easy to learn and use on a daily basis. The top of the line Denali is the only trim level available with the optional 360 degree parking camera and adaptive cruise control. The Acadia's exceedingly roomy front row is easy to access, but it comes up a little short on storage space for your small items. The GMC Acadia's top competitors include the Toyota Highlander, the Honda Pilot, and the Ford Explorer. Bottom line, the GMC Acadia is a solid choice for a comfortable, three row SUV, but it might also be worth your time to look at a few rivals, especially if you prioritize expansive third row seat space and lots of cargo room.

2018 GMC Acadia Denali GRAND OPENING! For the all N Country Buick-GMC Come check out our Huge Inventory and Super Savings.

The 2018 GMC Acadia represents something of an anomaly in the automotive world. Usually when a vehicle is redesigned, it becomes bigger and heavier than it was before. Yet after being produced for nearly a decade, the previous generation of the Acadia gave way to a lighter and trimmer version just last year. Measuring 7.2 inches shorter in length, 6.6 inches shorter in height and 3.5 inches narrower in width, the latest Acadia loses some passenger and cargo space but makes notable gains in overall maneuverability and parking ease. Dropping a whopping 700 pounds in curb weight also benefits the midsize crossover SUV, improving both fuel economy and handling.

Although the cabin may not be as voluminous as before, there is still plenty of room in the first- and second-row seats. The third row, however, is best left for the little ones. Depending on trim level, the 2018 GMC Acadia can seat anywhere from five to seven people. Those trim levels range from the base SL to the plush Denali, with the SLE and SLT (with two trims each) filling in between them. Fitted with quality materials, the Acadia's interior has both a pleasing design and sound ergonomics. The infotainment system is easy to use thanks to its large virtual buttons and simple graphics.

Even the entry-level SL comes standard with plenty of family-friendly features, including built-in Wi-Fi, triple-zone climate control and a rearview camera. It seems like a great deal, considering the ultracompetitive price, until you realize it's a special-order trim that dealers won't carry. The SLE-1 costs a lot more and barely adds anything, so you'll have to upgrade to the SLE-2 before you get any upgrades of substance. Its additions include a power liftgate and heated front seats.

Pay a little more for the SLT-1 and you'll further equip the Acadia with leather upholstery, a blind-spot monitor and an upgraded stereo system. The SLT-2 bolsters the equipment list with larger wheels, the V6 and additional safety features. Perks of the high-end Denali include xenon headlights, a hands-free power liftgate and heated-ventilated front seats. An All Terrain package, which features hill descent control and a more advanced all-wheel-drive system, is available on certain trims. Despite that moniker, however, an Acadia so equipped is still limited to lighter-duty off-road work.

A four-cylinder engine with 194 horsepower serves as the base powerplant, which, along with that big weight loss, optimizes fuel economy. Performance is adequate, though under hard acceleration (such as when merging or passing) it can sound and feel strained. Those who plan on regularly filling the seats, carrying heavy loads or towing anything should consider the uplevel 310-horsepower V6. Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are both available.
