Capable of carrying up to eight passengers, the 2012 GMC Acadia front-wheel and all-wheel drive ability makes the crossover vehicle quite capable for any family excursion. SL, SLE, SLT or Denali versions of the 2012 GMC Acadia share common standard features including OnStar, cruise control, XM satellite radio and air conditioning. Items such as Bluetooth connectivity, 8-way power driver seat, remote vehicle starter and an ultrasonic rear parking assist system are standard on the SLE and above models of the 2012 Acadia. Added last model year, a Denali package for the 2012 GMC Acadia furnishes the crossover vehicle with a perforated leather seating, Dual SkyScape sunroof, HID low-beam headlights and 20-inch chrome aluminum wheels. The 2012 GMC Acadia also presents rear seat entertainment system and XM NavTraffic as optional technological items. Powered by a 288 horsepower 3.6 liter V-6 powerplant, the considerable power is enough to tow up to 5,200 pounds of trailer.Read more Read less

A multi-passenger vehicle with soft, car-like styling; roomy interior; comfortable ride; fuel efficiency; top safety ratings
Style meets practicality with the GMC Acadia, which is closely related to the Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse. At 205 inches long, the Acadia is larger than many crossover rivals, like the Ford Edge or Toyota Highlander. The 2012 GMC Acadia has a smooth eye-catching exterior, highlighted by the big twin-port, chrome-rimmed front grille and projector-beam headlights -- a look intended to fit into the new corporate look of GM. The Acadia is once again a Top Safety Pick from The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and it once again receives ?excellent' ratings in federal government crash tests. MSRP starts at just under $33,000. Mileage performance is 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with the front-wheel drivetrain and 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway in all-wheel drive form.
