GMC Struts their stuff with latest crossover
Has it got the edge?
A week of driving, and no major complaints had presented themselves. Most impressively, the Acadia pulls off numerous jobs without feeling compromised in any way. It's a machine of much strength.
The interior isn't as daring as some other crossovers, and many a machine for this sort of money have more of the right materials in the right places. But it's inviting and appropriately trimmed nonetheless. At night, the intense red and blue panel buttons reflect off the various trim pieces, lighting the cabin up like a true premium machine.
Is this the one for you? No denying it's got real potential to outshine just about any other comparable machine.
If you're okay with the price, make sure this one's on your list.
