2015 GMC Acadia vs. Its Competition

2015 GMC Acadia
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

If you're looking for a full-size crossover, the 2015 GMC Acadia does most things well.

If you're considering its mechanically identical siblings, we'd take the Buick Enclave over the Chevrolet Traverse.

The Ford Flex competes with the Acadia most directly, though it's boxier and has a higher-tech and more confusing infotainment system.

The Mazda CX-9 drives very well for the segment and looks sportier than the Acadia.

The Honda Pilot feels cheaper inside than most other Honda products, but drives well, feels roomy inside, and offers excellent visibility.

The Toyota Highlander is also a strong contender now, with decent handling and improved drivetrains over past models.
