Expert Quotes:

17/24 mpg (FWD); 16/23 mpg (AWD)
EPA





The GMC Acadia gets many improvements for 2013, but fuel economy isn't one of them. As a large, heavy crossover vehicle that doesn't incorporate hybrid technology, the Acadia gets highway fuel economy that some may deem acceptable. But its city ratings may be harder to stomach.

The EPA rates the Acadia at 17/24 mpg in front-drive versions, and at 16/23 mpg in all-wheel-drive models. Based on past drives in the Acadia, as well as the nearly identical Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave, we tend to think those figures are a little optimistic.

GM has changed transmission controls for 2013, and we've noted in the past that the six-speed automatic in the Acadia does manage to provide a wide span of ratios to keep revs low when cruising on the highway.

Conclusion

Even considering its three-row seating capacity, the 2013 Acadia isn't particularly fuel-efficient.

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.
