The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 GMC Acadia stands out as being a stylish and capable full-size crossover that should be considered by those shopping for traditional SUVs and minivans. The 2009 Honda Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list.
