2011 GMC ACADIA
Bought it as CPO from dealer. Price was OK, but the car was originally bought and serviced from same dealer and was in mint condition. I needed a car that would seat at least 6 and tow at least 4500 lbs,.That leaves very few choices outside of the body on frame vehicles.
2009 GMC ACADIA
This Acadia has everything except navigation but I have a big Garmin that fits right in the area the gmc's navi would have been so no problem! Love the comfort of this car and it drives like a dream. Even though it is 5 yrs. old with 82,000 miles it feels brand new. I am extremely satisfied with our purchase!!
2013 GMC ACADIA
I bought it for the Chevy/GMC history we have at home. Also, because it offered three row seats and that's what I wanted. It's not a gas saver (V6) but I was aware of that.
2007 GMC ACADIA
The built in maps and directions is expensive ($200, seriously?) to update and doesn't work nearly as well as a phone app. Otherwise we really enjoy this car. I never realized how much I would like a back up camera, but it is very nice to have.
2007 GMC ACADIA
Great car! This one was very well taken care of, drives smooth, loaded with features. Would not hesitate to buy another if and when the time arises.
2008 GMC ACADIA
Very nice vehicle. Maintenance is extremely important, so look for vehicles with no engine repairs in the service history if buying used. That's a sure fire way to ID a properly maintained vehicle.

2011 GMC ACADIA
This vehicle is exactly what we were looking for. We had been checking out Acadias at other locations, but when we drove this one, we knew this was the one. It is a 2011, but it looks and handles just like a newer model. Our salesman was very professional and made the whole buying process easier!

2011 GMC ACADIA
If it was stolen tomorrow, I'd catch a ride to the GMC dealership and immediately buy another. It's that good. Can't rave enough about the 2nd row captains chairs with space in-between for accessing the 3rd row. I pile 5-6 teenagers in this thing on a regular basis and it's roomy enough for everyone (and their gear). It's powerful enough to pull my (sizable) sailboat, which is also a bonus. My only gripe is that the driver control screen (audio, navigation) is mid-dash rather than being up closer to the windshield--you have to divert your eyes from the road briefly to look closely at the screen. Honestly, that (and the gas mileage) are the only real shortcomings. But it's well worth the tradeoff.
Used GMC Acadia Information
The GMC Acadia is a full-size crossover SUV from General Motors. Introduced for the 2007 model year, the Acadia replaced similar seven-passenger sport utility vehicles in the GMC lineup. It also serves as an alternative to the full-size, truck-based SUVs like the GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe. The Acadia shares its platform with the Chevrolet Traverse and the Buick Enclave. The Acadia replaced the GMC Safari and Envoy when it was introduced.
The GMC Acadia is a three-row, full-size crossover. When it launched the Acadia was the first unibody, front-wheel drive crossover in the GMC line. The first-generation Acadia features seating for up to eight, or seven if equipped with second-row captain's chairs. It features an interior that's considered large for the class, with plenty of space for passengers and cargo alike.
Since its introduction, the Acadia has come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that initially produced 275 horsepower. 2009 and later models offer a bit more power, with 288 horsepower coming from a retuned version of that engine. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard and all-wheel drive is optional.
The Acadia comes standard with features like full power accessories, air conditioning and cloth upholstery. Higher trims add features like leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio and a Bose audio system. A backup camera became available in 2008 and a standard USB port was added to the 2010 model.
Updated interior and exterior styling was introduced with the 2013 model, and the interior benefitted from better materials and revised climate controls. GMC's IntelliLink infotainment system also became available for 2013, as well as driver assistance features like forward collision warning and lane departure warning. An updated version of GM's OnStar telematics system can be found in 2016 models, which includes a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot through a 4G LTE data connection.
The 2011 to 2016 Acadia has consistently earned a top five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for its overall performance in crash tests. Since its introduction, the GMC Acadia has steadily increased in sales numbers, with nearly 90,000 models sold in 2013. On the used market, it remains a popular vehicle for its style and luxury.
