2014 GMC Acadia: 17/24 mpg (FWD); 16/23 mpg (AWD)
EPA





Fuel economy is the bane of most big SUVs and crossovers, at least the ones without explicit gas-saving technologies factored into their drivetrains. Count the GMC Acadia among those: it was revamped in 2013, but more in styling and in feature content, though the transmission's shift logic was updated.

The Acadia's powertrain still turns in the same gas-mileage numbers it has delivered for the past few years. The highway numbers are acceptable, but the city numbers...they're not great.

The EPA rates the Acadia at 17/24 mpg or 19 mpg combined in front-drive versions, and at 16/23 mpg or 18 mpg combined 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. We'd also add the six-speed automatic in the Acadia does provide a wide span of ratios to keep revs low when cruising on the highway.

Conclusion

It's not bad for a three-row crossover, but on objective terms, the GMC Acadia isn't all that 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.
