2016 GMC Acadia Buyer's Guide

The 2015 model year was a strong one for GMC’s three-row midsize crossover, which outsold a number of its more mainstream rivals on numerous occasions over the past 12 months. And while the competition only gets tougher moving ahead, the 2016 GMC Acadia adds an important new benefit that’s right in line with its Professional Grade positioning: OnStar’s 4G LTE connectivity and a mobile wi-fi hotspot that can connect up to seven different digital devices. That technology is standard, too, courtesy of a three-month/three-gigabyte trial data plan. Of course, that new feature is just one entry in a long list of standard and available equipment for the Acadia, with GMC pulling it all together for the range-topping, ready-for-action Denali model.

What makes it move?

All 2016 GMC Acadias accommodate a 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, but the Denali editions do get a bit more output: 288 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, to be exact. The “regular” models make do with 281 hp/266 lb.-ft. of torque. In terms of fuel-economy, front-drive versions can ring up EPA ratings of 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway/19 mpg combined, with the addition of all-wheel drive knocking that down slightly to 16/23/19.

Why buy the 2016 GMC Acadia?

The 2016 GMC Acadia delivers the versatility one expects from a three-row crossover—with seating for up to eight and a maximum of 116.1 cubic feet of cargo space—along with the premium amenities that the GMC brand prides itself on, ranging from practicality enhancers like a power-opening rear liftgate to luxurious comforts such as heated and cooled front-row seating and a heated steering wheel. Yet it’s also surprisingly capable, with a healthy maximum tow rating of 5,200 lbs. and available, intelligent all-wheel drive. Further, while the Acadia isn’t the newest kid on the block, it does bring safety innovations like side blind-zone alert, cross-traffic alert, a standard rear-vision camera, and a segment-leading front-center airbag, design to inflate between the driver and front-seat passenger for added protection in far-side impacts.
