The Acadia is one of GM's three-row SUVs that can seat seven or eight passengers. It uses the same 3.6-liter, V6 engine as the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and Saturn Outlook, which makes 288 hp. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic, combining to make a smooth and refined powertrain, although it sometimes hesitates to downshift. The Acadia is available with front- or all-wheel drive.
