GMC's Acadia crossover is one of the most successful designs in the three-row crossover class because of a commodious interior that offers actual seating for up to 8 people. It's been wildly successful since its introduction for the 2007 model year -- few competitors have been able to match its popularity and practicality.
All Acadias come with GM's 3.6-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is an option. The base SLE-1 kicks things off with power windows, power locks with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, a backup camera, automatic headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, rear air conditioning, OnStar telematics, and a six-speaker touchscreen audio system with Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD radio and auxiliary and USB inputs.
The SLE-2 adds a power driver's seat, auto-dimming rearview mirrror, power liftgate and GMC Intellilink with integrated apps for systems like Bing and Pandora radio that run off of your smartphone's data connection. It also gets a special airbag between the driver and front passenger.
The SLT-1 throws in more luxury features, such as 19-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, more settings in the trip computer, an adaptive steering system, fog lamps, tri-zone automatic climate control and a 10-speaker Bose audio system with rear-seat audio controls.
The SLE-2 goes further with 8-way power front passenger's seat, memory functions for the driver's seat and mirrors (which are now power-folding), and a blind-spot monitoring system.
Finally, the Denali incorporates the highest level of luxury available on the Acadia. It gets a special grille and 20-inch chrome wheels, a panoramic moonroof, a wood steering wheel, upgraded leather upholstery and more sound insulation.
Options, depending on trim level, include xenon headlamps, a power sunroof, second-row captain's chairs, a navigation system with traffic monitoring and rear-seat DVD entertainment.

Advanced all-wheel drive system, powerful turbo V6 and advanced technology features, but doesn't have as much space inside and can be expensive
Standard seating for eight, well-equipped for the price, but interior lacks quality feel and styling is hit-or-miss
Fuel-efficient with a nicely appointed interior, but lacks performance and cargo capacity
Available V8 makes it a capable towing vehicle while it also offers a spacious third-row, but fuel economy isn't great and V6 doesn't have enough thrust
