GMC already had its large SUV in the Yukon, but for those who wanted a more car-like ride, it released the Acadia crossover SUV in 2007. The Acadia continued unchanged until a major refresh in 2013, and the model continues into 2015 with only minor changes.
What's New For 2015
The GMC Acadia carries over from 2014 with just a few changes. These include an optional heated steering wheel, a set of 20-inch aluminum wheels and three new exterior colors.
Choosing Your GMC Acadia
With only one engine and transmission available, the Acadia doesn't force buyers to make many powertrain decisions. Its 3.6-liter V6 produces 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque in the lower trim levels; the top-of-the-line Denali milks an extra seven horses and four pound-feet of torque. The key decision you'll make is between front- and all-wheel drive.
The Acadia has no shortage of trim levels and options to choose from, however:
The Acadia Denali may seem expensive on the surface, but for the features it comes with, it is actually a great deal. Pricing out a similarly equipped SLT-2 puts the price in excess of $49,000, and that does not include the Denali's exclusive items.
