The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 GMC Acadia shines most brightly in turbo-4 spec, but rival three-row crossovers put out more lumens. The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L performs on road and off, has lots of space, and competes with luxury brands in its top models.
