The acadia is a crossover suv, meaning it looks like a truck but it uses unibody construction like a car. Crossovers have been gaining in popularity because they make so much sense for so many families, but what sets the acadia apart is its size: it's big, similar in size to the gmc yukon and chevy tahoe, both inside and out. the acadia can seat seven or eight, and it can carry a lot of cargo. We've think the acadia delivers what most people want from a full-size suv. For starters, it's big and roomy inside. The driver sits high off the ground and has a commanding view of the road. There are three rows of seating, and rear-seat dvd entertainment is available. the only places where the acadia falls short of truck-based suvs are in heavy-duty towing or for slogging through military-grade muck. Properly equipped, the gmc acadia can tow 5,200 pounds, while a yukon is rated to pull 7,500 pounds or more. Based on the sierra full-size pickup, the yukon can handle rugged terrain that the acadia cannot. It absorbs rough pavement in a soothing manner and takes corners reassuringly for such a large vehicle. It handles better and is smoother than a yukon and other truck-based suvs. Gmc's 288-horsepower 3. 6-liter v6 is responsive and sophisticated and supplies good acceleration performance. Its six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and efficient, further aiding fuel economy. three rows of seats provide room for seven or eight, though it's more comfortable with six. Two adults and two or three children plus their belongings can be carried with ease. The acadia comes loaded with comprehensive safety equipment, including side-curtain airbags that provide head protection, side-impact airbags for torso protection and stabilitrak electronic stability control and other active safety features that can help the driver avoid accidents. for 2010, the changes are few. Acadia sle 34,365) and sle awd 36,365) add remote start, power driver's and front passenger's seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, power liftgate, fog lamps and rear park assist. Options include a trailering package 525), a dvd rear-seat entertainment system 2,305), dual headrest dvd player 2,010), advanced remote start 265), and the hit the road package 1,015) with splash guards, cross roof rails and chrome assist steps. acadia slt 38,085) and slt awd 40,085) upgrade to leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control with rear controls, heated front seats, a more sophisticated bose stereo with rear radio controls, driver information center, outside temperature display, compass, a bluetooth wireless cell phone link, universal garage-door opener, turn signals integrated into the outside mirrors and p265/60hr19 tires on machined alloy wheels. Optional all-wheel drive enhances safety on slippery surfaces. onstar uses a global positioning system and an extra-powerful cellular telephone to put the driver in touch with the onstar center, which can tell where the vehicle is located and send help or provide other assistance. Should the airbags deploy, the system can automatically notify the onstar center that an accident has occurred and where the vehicle is located so it can then send help. Onstar service is free for the first year but after that requires a subscription fee. walkaroundat 201. 1 inches overall, the gmc acadia is a lot longer than a ford explorer. The acadia shares its basic mechanical components with the buick enclave and chevy traverse. the exterior design team for the acadia managed to give a relatively large vehicle a look that has moved away from bulky without sacrificing a kind of active grace. The rounded front end features a bright grille surround framing a prominent gmc emblem. Distinctively curved headlight clusters give the acadia a slightly startled expression. Projector beams are standard; high-intensity discharge headlights are optional. Small round fog lights nestle below. The front bumper is massive, but this is camouflaged somewhat by its black color and by a bright strip at the top. most noticeable from the side are the rounded fender flares and a horizontal character line that sets out to connect them but disappears into the doors instead. Tasteful bright trim and polished aluminum roof rails add visual interest. The shape of the acadia is aerodynamically efficient (for an suv), with a drag coefficient of 0. 344. Power-adjustable outside mirrors are standard on all models. Body-color outside mirrors with integrated turn signals are standard on slt, with a power-folding function available as an option. from the rear, the acadia looks like a generic crossover suv, accented by interesting two-tone taillight clusters and quad exhaust tips. the 18-inch wheels and tires that come standard are a good choice for the acadia, offering the best ride quality, but it's also available with 19-inch and 20-inch wheels. The designers of the acadia stayed away from cheap-looking plastic and bargain-basement cloth, but did not lose track of basic functionality. The heating and cooling controls are easy to find and use. The instruments are legible, not lost in some fussy attempt at a complex design. Big cupholders and a deep bin between the front seats are welcome, but the pockets on the inside door panels are too narrow for any meaningful storage. the front seats are wide and comfortable. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes, making it easy for drivers tall and short to get comfortable. As with any suv, the driver sits high, with a good view down the road. But visibility to the rear isn't great, requiring care when backing up. We recommend opting for ultrasonic rear park assist, which can detect objects out of the driver's line of sight. We further recommend getting the rearview camera, which projects its image on the navigation screen or the rearview mirror. However, in a messy chicago winter, the camera lens became speckled with dirt and salt, making the small image on the rearview mirror hard to see. A larger image on a navigation screen would have been easier to see and more helpful. eight-passenger seating comes standard, with a 60/40 split bench in the second row that can accommodate three people. The up-level models have second-row captain's chairs, which cut passenger capacity to seven but are more comfortable. Either model can be ordered with the other seating arrangement. This is an important choice that deserves careful consideration: models with second-row captain's chairs are less functional for hauling cargo. the specifications list second-row legroom as 36. 9 inches. According to gm, those 36. 9 inches are measured with the seat roughly in the middle of that range. We found that with the second row in the rearmost position a six-foot adult can be comfortable in the driver's seat while another six-footer can be seated directly behind without being cramped. getting to the third row involves using what gm calls its smart slide feature. A handle moves the second row up and out of the way. It didn't work particularly well for us on an early model acadia we tested, but we found it to be easy to use on other gm models.
