It’s not just about the crossover being a smaller car that is more compact, easier to park and that gets better gas mileage than SUVs these days. Rather, it’s about them also offering the roominess of the third-row, the stylishness of their larger SUV cousins, and the creature comforts of an amenity-rich cabin. The GMC Acadia fits the bill for all of these prerequisites while offering a mid-range price tag. Choose from three trims: SLE, SLT and Denali, with several sub-trims in between. Note the comfy front captain’s chairs, standard 18” wheels, auto-headlights, backup camera with parking sensors, OnStar, 6.5” touchscreen with Bluetooth, six-speaker sound system and standard USB charging ports that complement the spacious and luxurious as well as roomy interior. Upgraded trims add the convenience and comfort of leather seating, powered front seats, voice control, remote start, chrome wheels and panoramic sunroof. Front impact airbags and side curtain airbags merge with traction and stability control to offer a desirable safety rating. The Acadia is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 288 horsepower at 270 pound-feet of torque, assuredly enough to climb steeps hills on that camping trip or to safely get you out of the merge lane when entering the freeway. Consider increasing the standard 3-year/36,000 mile warranty to better protect your investment.
