2020 GMC Acadia Review
You’re looking for a family SUV that looks a little bolder than the average—you gotta keep your street cred—so how about the 2020 GMC Acadia? It looks rugged chugging around Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, and is spacious enough for your whole family including grandma and the family pet. So, The Lake Dealerships designed this review to let you know all it can do.
GMC Acadia Performance
Trust in the capable performance the Acadia delivers. It begins with a Keyless Open and Start of one of three impressive engines including the following:
- 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbo engine that produces 230 horsepower with 258 lb-ft of torque
- 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 193 horsepower with 188 lb-ft of torque
- 3.6L V6 engine that produces 310 horsepower with 271 lb-ft of torque
Choose what works best, especially if you want to tow up to 4,000 pounds, which the Acadia allows. To perform those duties on uneven surfaces, rely on the available Traction Select System that uses multiple driver modes including Off-Road mode to customize your ride to the conditions. Add on Adaptive Ride Control, and it subtly adjusts the damping forces to keep your drive quiet, so you can concentrate.
GMC Acadia Dimensions
This SUV welcomes all the family into its fold because it gives everyone a secure place to rest weary heads. Three available rows can fit inside with enough space for seven people. Your whole vehicle packed with your crew can feel comfortable with the assistance of standard Tri-zone automatic climate control with three-row modes. If you opt for two rows, it comes with Dual-zone automatic climate control.
In the front, expect headroom measuring 40 inches and legroom reaching 41 inches. As a driver and front passenger, warm up during Happy Valley winters with the available heated driver’s and front passenger seats.
Take a walk around the back, use the optional hands-free programmable power liftgate, and visualize all your gear sliding into 79 cubic feet of space. The Smart Slide second-row seats fold down and split for all that extra room, perfect for weekend camping trips or shopping sprees.
Protective Safety Tech
Several different safety features will help keep you safe when driving your Acadia, but some stand out. Rear Cross Traffic Alert comes standard, which not all SUVs can claim. If you couple this with the available High Definition Surround Vision, you can see a 360-degree display of what’s around your vehicle and get alerts if an unexpected obstacle passes in the back.
To keep an eye on all the tech functions in your Acadia without dangerously glancing southward, the available 6-inch color Head-Up Display offers your current speed, audio selections, incoming calls, directions, and fuel usage right on the windshield.
Even at the lowest trim, view your smartphone apps with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration on your standard 8-inch GMC Infotainment System. It can be equipped with their optional Navigation system and provides you a display of your apps and other valuable full-screen information such as what’s playing on the radio. You can hear those tunes on the available Bose® Premium Audio System.
GMC understands that a busy family needs the ability to hook up one or more devices to a network within your Acadia. With the standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot, you can connect multiple devices—seven in fact—at one time, so everyone can stay in touch with what and whom is important to them.
