Now in its eighth year of production, the GMC Acadia's handsome styling and crisp lines have helped this full-size crossover age with relative grace.
A 2013 facelift gave the Acadia a bit more chiseled front end and a wrap-around glass treatment lifted from its discontinued Saturn Outlook sibling. The pronounced grille gives the Acadia a tougher look than its softer Buick Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse stablemates. Likewise, 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 dressed up with soft-touch materials and soft leather upholstery with French stitching. Red ambient lighting and aluminum interior accents (also in Acadia SLT models) also distinguish the Denali from the rest of the lineup.
