Best in class

Some "professional" writers dislike the Acadia for it's smaller dimensions for a 3 row SUV, but I find it a plus for what I wanted. I've had a mid 90's Chevy Blazer, 99 Dodge Durango, 03 Hyundai Santa Fe, 07 Chevy Tahoe and a 13 Cadillac SRX. With it's shorter overhang and 112" wheel base this 3 row SUV is easy to drive in town and Forestry Service roads on BLM and National forest roads. Large enough to to SUV RVing. Everything lays total flat so I can sleep in the back(had to cut some plywood for the gap between the 2nd row captain chairs). 81" length inside with drivers seat back to fit my 6'1" frame. When wife comes along car camping need to use the Yakima Skybox 16 Carbonite(post 5/2020 manufacturing date, redesign to fit). Not hardcore, 2-3 days out, then hotel. Also my SLT-1 with 3.6l (optional) and towing package (optional) has more towing capacity than anything this size, 4,000 lbs, at a better price point.

Great SUV

The 2019 Acadia Denali is easy to drive and has all of the “extras” to make it enjoyable. Smooth ride and so comfortable. My family loves it!
