2015 GMC Acadia vs. 2015 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Toyota 4Runner. The GMC Acadia offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Acadia as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, 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). The GMC Acadia is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota 4Runner. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The GMC Acadia will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Acadia is much wider than the Toyota 4Runner, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the GMC Acadia, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the GMC Acadia doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The GMC Acadia has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Acadia has a little more horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
The GMC Acadia offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Warranty
The GMC Acadia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota 4Runner.
