2016 GMC Acadia Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Weighing in at around 5,000 pounds, the GMC Acadia counts fuel economy among its weaknesses. The 2016 GMC Acadia carries EPA fuel economy ratings of 15 mpg city, 22 highway, 18 combined with front-wheel drive, and 15/22/17 mpg with all-wheel drive.

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, especially for city driving. However, the 6-speed automatic transmission provides a wide span of ratios that allow it to keep the revs low when cruising on the highway.

Considering its size and passenger capacity, the Acadia delivers acceptable fuel economy.
