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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Rides and drives good. Quiet.

Cons: No cargo space with 3rd row seat up

not much cargo space if carrying family.

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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: We love the GMC Acadia for its wonderful ride, and comfort.  

Cons: None yet.

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!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Sporty, has all the extra's (leather, DVD, remote start) and lots of room!

Cons: Not a lot of power and fuel economy not as good as expected.

2012 GMC Acadia Denali AWD Review
says:
This vehicle has all you need inside and out. I believe it is an excellent choice as well when it comes to mid sized SUVs with 3rd row seating. I enjoyed the drive but the most of the models were a little bit pricey compared to the Enclaves we shopped. Good car overall, It just comes down to preference.

Handling Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"The ride seemed a bit smoother. Similar to new mini van, yet powerful like an SUV. It hugs curves well, and feels like your gliding."
Looks/Style Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"I believe its just a matter of preference. They are very similar vehicles as the interior platforms are the same. The enclave has more a rounder, sleek look to it that just looked a bit prettier if you will. "
Front Seats Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"The seats also are the same."
Back Seats Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"The back seats are the same. Both captain seats and 3rd row bench."
Value Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"The value lies in the different options. You can find the Enclave with about 95% of the features the Acadia Denali has (minus the heads up display and special rear mirrors to dull opposing high beams) Without having to buy the top model enclave (premium) we have the CXL which Is like the SLE in the Acadia (below denali) and our Enclave has all of the Denali features. "
Would Buy Ranked 2011 Buick Enclave better.
"We did buy! It came down to the price for features, the overall driving experience and the personal preference of appearance. Either way you cant go wrong though. Both good vehicles. "
