A family wagon above all its off-road feinting, the GMC Acadia also offers up heavy doses of standard equipment--in lockstep with its "professional-grade" tagline. There's so much in the way of luxury and infotainment, it's practically the brand's minivan.

Same as last year, the Acadia comes in SLE, SLT, and Denali versions, with the lower trim levels taking a half-step into SLE2 and SLT2 territory. All Acadias come with standard cloth seating; power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; air conditioning; and a Color Touch Radio with touch-screen control, a USB port, a rearview camera, and a few months of satellite radio service. For 2014, GMC has added a pair of USB charge-only ports to the back of the center console, acknowledging the game-happy passengers sure to hop into its back seats.

Among the Acadia's options are a navigation that interfaces with the system. GMC IntelliLink is available or standard on all models: it's a smartphone-connectivity package that integrates Pandora and Stitcher internet radio capability, plus Bluetooth-driven voice controls.

Moving into the SLT, the Acadia gains leather upholstery and heated front seats. SLT2 and Denali models step up to perforated 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.




Connectivity and luxury are well-handled by the Acadia's standard-equipment list; fully optioned, it's close to Caddy standards.

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.
