2017 GMC Acadia vs. 2016 Lexus RX 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Lexus RX 350. The Lexus RX 350 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 Lexus RX 350, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Acadia will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus RX 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the GMC Acadia and the Lexus RX 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Acadia is a little wider than the Lexus RX 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the GMC Acadia takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus RX 350.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Lexus RX 350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus RX 350, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus RX 350 is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Acadia has a little more horsepower than the Lexus RX 350.

Utility
The GMC Acadia offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus RX 350, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the GMC Acadia, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus RX 350.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Acadia is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus RX 350.
