has the strongest looks and one of the more attractive interiors among the Lambda siblings
Car and Driver



Not too formal, but crisper-looking than the Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave it calls kin, the GMC Acadia wears a nicely fitted sport coat of sheetmetal, and a tidy, well-turned-out cockpit. It hasn't changed much since it was introduced in 2008, true, but the straightforward look is aging gracefully, and fits in well with the GMC ethos.

Last year GMC facelifted the Acadia with a bit more chisel to the front and a wrap-around glass treatment lifted from one of its discontinued siblings, the Saturn Outlook. It's still quite handsome and the changes are minor. The profile's as straightforward as it can be, less anonymous than the Traverse and more masculine than the curvaceous Enclave. It's fairly easy to spot an Acadia Denali, too, by dint of its chromed-mesh grille, distinct headlights, and 18- to 20-inch wheels. 

Inside, the Acadia has one of the simpler interior layouts among crossovers, but it's been dressed up this year with softer leather with French stitching and more soft-touch materials made available. Red ambient lighting and new aluminum interior accents (also in Acadia SLT models) also distinguish the Denali from the rest of the lineup.

 

Conclusion

A sport coat of an SUV, the 2014 GMC Acadia is business-casual smart without looking too formal.

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.
