About GMC Acadia

Redesigned from the ground up, the 2017 GMC Acadia boasts a sleeker look, enhanced technology and greater efficiency in a slightly smaller and significantly lighter package that “strategically repositions” this midsize SUV to further separate it from GMC’s full-size Yukon. Based on all-new platform architecture that also underpins the new Cadillac XT5, the recast Gen II Acadia still has 3-row seating for up to seven and generous cargo space but packs it into a more maneuverable and driver-friendly configuration. As part of its comprehensive recasting, the 2017 Acadia also gains a host of new assist systems and now offers a new 4-cylinder engine choice as well as its traditional V6, front-drive or a sophisticated 4-wheel drive system and a new off-road-focused All-Terrain variant.

"Fascinated with the design! VERY comfortible drives like a Compact SUV with more space than the average Midsizer! I bought the Denali version and have been VERY pleased! I bought it 2 weeks after it came out and the quality is a LITTLE spotty (Acceptable with one of the first thousand built) hope this will help you in your purchase!"

"We have loved out Denali. It is just what we wanted. Not too big and not too small and fits our life so well. It drives very well and with the Magnetic Suspension provides a great ride. Has a great choice of technology and options. Could use more color contrast inside with the Jet Black. No issues with blind spots if you know how to use a mirror as with any SUV. MPG highways is 27 MPG at this point beating the rating by one. That was not driving it easy either. Tough category with so much good competition. But if we had to make the choice again it would be the Acadia Denali with no second thoughts."

"In shopping we compared the Acadia Denali with mid size vehicles from Lincoln Acura BME and Audi with 3 row seating. We have 4 grandchildren within 2 blocks so we need the six passenger vehicle. A big selling point for the Acadia is that the 3rd row seats are actually comfortable for adult size people. The other brands slope the roof of their vehicles so there is no head room. The Acadia come in a 6 or 7 passenger configuration. We found that the 2nd row bucket seats were far more comfortable than the bench seat. While all brands had heated seats the Acadia Denali came with cooled seats that really work, a more useful option in South Florida. Our other vehicle is a crew cab pickup and we were replacing a car. So, the fact that the 2017 Acadia is 6 inches shorter and 3 inches narrower than the Acadia limited was fine for us. The interior is not cramped and it is easy to park. Now for the guy stuff. The 310 hp V6 will light up the tires if you hit the gas. The suspension has multiple settings. When driving it feels kind of like a sports car. The electronics are amazing and all work as advertised. We are getting 19mpg in town. I suspect stop and go traffic would bring that down to 16. We have taken one long road trip and got 29 mpg all freeway. That is better than advertised so maybe we had a tailwind. I have owned 29 cars and this is my 2nd favorite, 69 L89 vette #1. Bottom line is this is a really great vehicle. The features of the Denali compare well to the luxury brands."
