Pros

The Acadia Denali is a great looking car, comfortable super quiet ride with plenty of room inside.  

Cons

Only negative is I wish the Acadia had a little better acceleration and passing power.

Awsome Ride — The best thing about the Acadia Denali is its looks. The White Diamond Tri-coat color is the best color I have ever seen on a car. The Acadia also has plenty of room for 7 passengers with a large comfortable third row. Only complaint is I wish acceleration was a little better.

Acadia — I love this vehicle. It is a perfect family car with the leather seats and DVD entertainment system. Rides and drives great. It is not too bad on gas for its size. The remote start is also a great feature.

Nice For Up To 4 People — no real cargo space for trips but plenty for grocery shopping. rear view camera display is in rear view mirror and is way to small. chrome dash board trim blinds you in the daytime. comfy to drive... good power. unfriendly entertainment controls. I need to where low cut reading glasses to see the symbols on the controls. great brakes great climate control

We Love Our Acaia! — We just the love the GMC Acadia. We don't like the newer body style with the big front end. We still love the older style with the sloping front. This vehicle had been a wonderful addition to our fleet of vehicles. It rides like a dream and the awd is wonderful in bad weather. Thanks

Great Family Car! — If you don't have a lead foot like myself you will love this car! Looks good, handles good and has all the options you need! Very roomy, even with the third row up, there's plenty of room behind the seat for a stroller or whatever else!

Solid Family Vehicle. — Excellent alternative to a minivan. 7 or 8 passenger seating configurations. Efficient and powerful 3.6L V6 288hp engine. 6 Speed Automatic Transmission Shifts Smooth Excellent utility. Well Equipped. Very popular line of SUVS. Feels a little heavy but has good road holding.
