GMC Acadia Overview

The Acadia is one of GM's roomy, car-based three-row SUVs. It has a spacious and quiet interior, with a third-row seat that's roomy enough for adults. Seating for eight is available. In our tests of its cousin the Traverse, the smooth and refined 3.6-liter V6 returned 16 mpg overall, but it has to work a bit to haul this heavy SUV. A recent freshening brought the better Intellilink infotainment system and less intrusive head restraints. Handling is relatively agile and secure, and it steers nicely. The ride is taut yet comfortable and steady. Rear visibility isn't great, but clever extra mirrors reduce side blind spots. Reliability has been average.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
