Practically speaking, the Acadia’s only direct competitor is the Ford Flex, a crossover vehicle that combines a comparable emphasis on passenger comfort and space with a completely different, boxy style.
Like the Acadia, the Flex has a third-row seat that’s good enough for smaller adults.
The Acadia's powertrain outmuscles Honda's eight-passenger crossover, the Pilot.
The Toyota Highlander offers slightly more ruggedness, but it can't match the interior room of the Acadia.
The Mazda CX-9 is also worth putting on your list, as it comes close to matching many of the Acadia's people and cargo capabilities, while offering a more enjoyable driving experience.
