What Is the 2014 GMC Acadia?
The 2014 GMC Acadia is a full-size SUV with seating for seven to eight. It's offered in five trim levels: SLE-1, SLE-2, SLT-1, SLT-2 and Denali. Each trim offers a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Competing vehicles include the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer and Mazda CX-9.
What's New on the 2014 GMC Acadia?
For 2014, the GMC Acadia gets available forward collision alert and lane departure warning. Inside all models, two USB ports for phone and portable device charging can be found at the rear of the center console.
How Does the 2014 GMC Acadia Compare to Other Full-Size SUVs?
The GMC Acadia was redesigned in 2013, adding an immense, attention-grabbing grille, but it doesn't offer much else to set it apart. Compared with its sibling, the Chevrolet Traverse, it's pricier and doesn't wow with its interior or gadgets.
What Features in the 2014 GMC Acadia Are Most Important?
The Acadia is powered by a 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that runs on regular gas and is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. Properly equipped, the Acadia can tow up to 5,200 pounds.
Significant standard features include a massive three-bar grille, 18-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlights, rear park assist and a 60/40-split bench seat or captain's chairs in the second row. Notable options include 19- or 20-inch aluminum wheels, a power liftgate, projector-beam high-intensity-discharge headlights, an IntelliLink multimedia system, a head-up display, a navigation system, a rear DVD entertainment system and heated and cooled front seats.
The Acadia comes standard with frontal and front side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags for all rows, four-wheel disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, traction control and a backup camera. Additional safety features can be purchased as options, including a side airbag between the front seats, a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert and lane departure warning.
Should I Buy the 2014 GMC Acadia?
The 2014 GMC Acadia is a solid SUV with generous cargo space and a standard backup camera. The second row is nice and roomy, but the third row feels rather cramped. The Acadia offers car-like handling, but its large turning circle puts it at a disadvantage on narrow streets.
