Expert Quotes:

2012 GMC Acadia: 17/24 mpg (FWD); 16/23 mpg (AWD)
EPA





As is the case with most large crossovers, the 2012 GMC Acadia rates well enough in highway fuel economy, but often checks in with averages closer to the lower city-cycle ratings.

The Acadia shares its six-speed automatic transmission with other GM vehicles, and as in those other crossovers, the wide span of gear ratios helps provide impressive performance.

The EPA rates the Acadia at 17/24 mpg in front-drive versions, and at 16/23 mpg in all-wheel-drive models. We think those figures are optimistic. In repeated test drives of the Acadia and its Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse siblings, we've only seen real-world gas mileage near the bottom of that scale.

Conclusion

It has reasonable fuel economy for an eight-passenger vehicle, but the 2012 GMC Acadia isn't a gas-mileage champion.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
