2017 GMC Acadia vs. 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the GMC Acadia, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder 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
The Nissan Pathfinder requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Acadia, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The GMC Acadia is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Pathfinder. 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 Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much slimmer than the Nissan Pathfinder, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The GMC Acadia is slightly shorter than the Nissan Pathfinder, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The GMC Acadia has the same turning radius as the Nissan Pathfinder, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Acadia and the Nissan Pathfinder. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the GMC Acadia as you will in the Nissan Pathfinder.
