The Acadia breaks away from GMC's tough, professional-grade image, and it more than anything appeals to busy families--including many that looks to the Acadia as a minivan alternative.

The 2013 Acadia is offered in SLE, SLT, and Denali versions--although SLE2 and SLT2 trims add a few more features to each. With the discontinuation of last year's base SL trim, interior materials are up for base models, including more soft-touch materials throughout and higher-grade upholsteries. SLE models include cloth seating, while SLT models add leather upholstery and heated front seats. SLT2 and Denali models step up to perrforated leather with heated and cooled front seats, and the top Denali model includes a Dual SkyScape sunroof. A tri-zone climate control system is included with SLT and Denali models, while a rear-seat entertainment system is available throughout the model line--including surround sound, ten speakers, and two sets of wireless headphones.

Newly standard on the 2013 is a Color Touch Radio with touch-screen control, and navigation is available with the system. Also optional is IntelliLink, which adds Pandora and Stitcher internet radio capability plus hands-free voice controls. Auxiliary and USB inputs are provided, and the system includes a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner plus HD Radio compatibility, a photo viewer, and a built-in rear-vision camera.

Conclusion

Updated infotainment features are offered throughout the lineup, and GMC Acadia Denali models feel like they could have a luxury badge.

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.
