2020 GMC Acadia


GMC serves up a wide range of Acadia crossovers, and puts a slick new infotainment system in them all. It omits key safety gear from the best Acadia values, though—so it earns a 7 here.

The $30,995 Acadia SL comes only with the 4-cylinder non-turbo engine and front-wheel drive, as well as an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, 7-passenger seating, 4-way manual front seats, keyless start, and 3-zone automatic climate control. We’d skip it and the $34,995 Acadia SLE, which gains selectable drive modes, satellite radio, and 18-inch wheels, as well as options for the V-6 or turbo-4 with all-wheel drive, a sunroof, heated and cooled power front seats, a power tailgate, and Bose audio. 

The $40,895 Acadia SLT is our pick. It has the turbo-4, leather upholstery, 6-passenger seating, a power driver seat, heated front seats, remote start, and Bose audio. Spend another $1,295 and it comes with automatic emergency braking, a safety feature that’s standard on some $20,000 compact hatchbacks.

The $44,395 Acadia AT4 might draw interest for its off-road style. It gets 5-passenger seating, 17-inch black wheels, cloth seats, the V-6, and an off-road mode and off-road tires. The $49,990 Acadia Denali caps the lineup with heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, wireless smartphone charging, the V-6 engine and all-wheel drive—and standard automatic emergency braking, as well as adaptive cruise control.
