The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 GMC Acadia is better-looking than most minivans, and a whole lot more useful than full-size SUVs for passenger duty. If you have a load to pull on a regular basis, the 2008 GMC Envoy might make sense. Otherwise, you can do better when hauling passengers.
