2015 GMC Acadia vs. 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the GMC Acadia than the Chevrolet Tahoe. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Acadia as you will with the Chevrolet Tahoe, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the GMC Acadia is a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Tahoe, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Tahoe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Acadia takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Chevrolet Tahoe, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Tahoe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Acadia has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Acadia and the Chevrolet Tahoe. The GMC Acadia has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Warranty
The GMC Acadia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Tahoe.
