Reviewers say the 2014 GMC Acadia has an upscale interior and a refined ride.

The GMC Acadia is powered by a V6 engine that reviewers say provides adequate power. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and most test drivers agree that it shifts smoothly. The Acadia achieves up to an EPA-estimated 17/24 mpg city/highway, which isn’t bad for the class. Reviewers say the Acadia has a comfortable, refined ride, and that there’s little body roll through turns.  Test drivers note that the Acadia’s brakes have plenty of stopping power, and that the steering is neither too heavy nor too light.


Reviewers like the Acadia’s well-designed interior, which they say is built with high-quality materials. Most also note that the Acadia has very generous cargo space for the class. Test drivers report that the Acadia’s front seats are comfortable, with adequate head- and legroom. One reviewer says that the second row is comfortable and spacious.  The Acadia’s standard features include a backup camera, six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth and a USB port. Optional features include a 10-speaker Bose stereo, GMC’s IntelliLink infotainment system, a dual-pane sunroof and a rear-seat entertainment system.
