2022 GMC Acadia vs. Its Competition

2022 GMC Acadia AWD 4-door Denali Angular Front Exterior View
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Acadia is on the small side for a 3-row SUV.

Consider the freshly redesigned Nissan Pathfinder for its good blend of style and value.

The Ford Explorer offers impressive driving dynamics and a good towing rating.

Kia’s Telluride is still the in-thing among big SUVs, and for good reason—but it can be hard to find one.

The Toyota Highlander comes in a frugal hybrid configuration.

The new Jeep Grand Cherokee L delivers off-road chops and the allure of V-8 power, too.
