My girlfriend and I were in the market for an SUV we were treated so poorly at a Toyota dealership and they refused to give any discounts on a highlander so I researched Traverse and Acadia and we bought a Acadia SLT with the Denali optional wheels overall happy although hate the button shifter only time will tell with the engine and transmission but have always owned General Motors vehicles so wanted to stick with owning a General Motors vehicle the room is awesome so comfortable and roomy with head room and leg room definitely the best bang for your buck we drove off the lot in a 2020 with 9000 dollars in rebates on the vehicle because it was a 2020 and the 21s were coming in and I traded my SS Camaro in so we could start a family with an suv hopefully it will hold up for the next 7 years

Great family car

Family friendly car. I have 4 kids so it’s nice and roomy with plenty of USB ports. I love the rear heating and cooling. Car seats if perfect. Great for vacation and shopping trips with the girls

WOW...This is a high end SUV that no one knows abo

We have two little guys one 4, and one two, and we want to expand our family and need a third row. So since it was my wife’s birthday I took her car shopping. We looked first at the Kia Telluride and was very impressed. Rode great and had nice features. However Kia will never see me as a customer. The base MSRP was $33,370 and they added an additional $4,995 to that price because as the salesman said “the cars hit right now, if you want one you’re going to pay a premium!” Okay the car’s nice but, all due respect it’s a Kia? Next was the Hyundai Palisade. Very nice car loved the ride and the look. Felt it was nicer looking than the Telluride but just like the Kia, the local Hyundai dealers were adding a premium of $3,895. At both of these dealers the “hot” car they were adding a premium to might not have been that hot because each dealer had at least ten of them in stock? Hot cars have waiting lists, they don’t have stockpiles of them. So after two dealerships all I had to show for it was a disappointed wife. My father said go look at an Acadia. He has a friend at a local dealer and dad said he’ll make sure to take care of you. So off we went, with my wife with a sourpuss face because as she put it “GMC’s arenwork trucks they’re not high end SUV’s” well boy oh boy was she wrong. We looked at a 2020 because of the deals but when my dads friend said he’ll do the same numbers on a 2021 we were excited. We found the car she liked it was a white 2021 SLE model with a sunroof, the at4 package (which gave us 20” wheels with black chrome A black chrome grille and luggage rack) also had the convenience package that has remote start and heated seats and some other stuff. The car looks gorgeous. It’s a head turner. But you know sometimes the pretty girls have awful personalities right? Well not this prom queen. As great looking as the Acadia is it is even better with its comfort convenience and performance. We went with the 3.0 310 hp six cylinder and with the nine speed transmission it is flawless. Great turning radius, so easy to drive. I read a review about a woman complaining about a blind spot? Ignore that the person that wrote it is trying to get a new car and looking for ways to get out of it. This car is so easy to drive and that’s saying something when you consider the car is the same length as a Yukon? It’s a beast. Everything about this SUV screams premium car except the price. This car had a sticker price higher than both the Kia and the Hyundai but in the case of the Kia it leased for $217 less per month and the Hyundai was $267 dollars less?? We leased a 2021 ACADIA with standard up front costs for $496/month on a car with an MSRP of $41,805!! This is the perfect SUV for an active family. GMC nailed this one.
