a bit more tailored and masculine
New York Times

very well-appointed
Orlando Sentinel (via Cars.com)

TheCarConnection.com team did not see a great deal of strong opinions expressed regarding the exterior styling of the 2008 GMC Acadia.

“Mechanically, it's very similar to the Saturn Outlook and Buick Enclave,” Edmunds notes (and to the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse, TheCarConnection.com adds). On the outside, though, the 2008 GMC Acadia is less rounded and streamlined than many newer SUVs and its GM cousins. It's a more traditional design that Kelley Blue Book considers "handsome," "masculine," and "upscale." With the Acadia, GMC has a “masculine” vehicle, the New York Times says, as well as "tailored." Car and Driver says it has a “handsome interior and exterior,” while Automedia reports that the “Acadia's styling lands somewhere south of SUV and north of station wagon; more masculine than a minivan, but not so macho as to polarize.” Cars.com sums up the rear end, saying it “hints that someone with fashion sense resides inside GM's design studio.”

The Orlando Sentinel is more concerned with the interior of the GMC; 2008’s Acadia is "well-appointed." Cars.com says it has “clear gauges and easy-to-use buttons.” Kelley Blue Book was enchanted with the interior: "An attractive two-tone look is used throughout the Acadia lineup, with an available 'brick interior' adding striking red surfaces for those with adventurous tastes."

Conclusion

The 2008 GMC Acadia has a good-looking sheetmetal suit and a handsome interior to match.

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.
