Loading Comparison...


The 2019 GMC Acadia has big families in mind. The three-row crossover SUV, new for 2017, seats up to seven occupants and shares some running gear with the Chevy Traverse.

A new Black Edition appearance option has been introduced for the 2019 model year. Available for the SLT trim level, the package includes 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with black accents, plus a black grille, headlight and taillight details, mirror caps, and roof rails.

In addition, new 17-inch wheels are available for the All Terrain option package, offered on SLE and SLT trim levels. The All Terrain package features five-passenger seating with distinct interior accents, dark chrome trim, a body-color grille surround, and cargo management system.

The 2019 Acadia is available with either a 4-cylinder engine or a V-6, and with standard front-wheel drive or extra-cost all-wheel drive. The non-turbocharged 2.5-liter base engine makes 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque.

Strong and quiet, the optional 3.6-liter V-6 develops a respectable 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet. Standard in the Denali edition, it’s available for all models except the base SL. Both engines mate with a slick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission.

Seven airbags and a rearview camera are standard, but active-safety features are largely limited to high-end models. A standard rear-seat detection system can remind the driver if a child or pet might be in the back seat.

Driver Alert Package I, optional for SLE-2 and standard on SLT-1, includes blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and rear parking sensors. Picking SLT-2 or Denali brings Driver Alert Package II, adding low-speed automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warnings, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and active lane control.

Crash-test scores excel, with two exceptions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2019 Acadia “Good” ratings in every category other than headlights, which were deemed “Marginal.” With specific optional equipment installed, front crash protection was rated “Superior.”

On the federal government side, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2019 all-wheel-drive version five stars overall, and for frontal and side impacts. Oddly, the front-drive Acadia received a four-star overall rating.


Prices do not include the $1,195 destination charge.

SL ($29,000), the base front-drive model, contains the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, along with 17-inch alloy wheels, seven-passenger seating, leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry/start, three-zone automatic climate control, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Start/stop technology is standard. All-wheel drive is unavailable.

SLE-1 ($32,800 with front-drive, $34,800 with all-wheel drive) includes satellite radio, a compact spare tire, carpeted mats, and LED daytime running lights.

SLE-2 ($35,200 with FWD, $37,200 with AWD) gets an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, 18-inch wheels, and a power liftgate.

SLT-1 ($38,000 with FWD, $41,100 with AWD) includes perforated leather-appointed seats, a power front passenger seat, Bose audio, auto-dimming mirrors, blind-spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alert. The new Black Edition package costs $1,450 additional.

SLT-2 ($41,900 with FWD, $43,900 with AWD) upgrades to V-6 power and includes 20-inch wheels, a memory system, heated outboard second-row seats, and front and rear parking sensors.

Denali ($45,500 with FWD, $47,500 with AWD) comes with the 3.6-liter V-6, as well as 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, a distinct grille, Driver Alert II package, hands-free power liftgate, 8.0-inch screen with navigation, bright roof rails, and heated and cooled front seats.


The Acadia’s enticing curves complement its more mature, attractive design elements. It’s masculine, but it’s not audacious. The optional All-Terrain appearance package adds an extra level of ruggedness; its squared-off wheel arches convey a more truck-like look.

Large taillights are separated with a chrome element. All-Terrain and new Black Edition packages hold back on glitz, whereas the chrome-laden Denali revels in it.


Promising good space for four adults, the refined – if somewhat tame – cabin highlights the generally comfortable Acadia experience. Up to seven passengers fit, despite the crossover’s somewhat narrow footprint.

Front- and second-row seats are comfortable, but some passengers will feel snug if every space is occupied. Second-row access is easy, but the center position is a tight squeeze.

Third-row seats won’t satisfy most adults. Even some youngsters might feel cramped.

Most Acadias can be fitted with dual captain’s chairs in the second row, replacing the customary bench, reducing capacity to six people.

Cabin trimmings please the eye, with ample use of soft-touch materials. High-dollar SLT and Denali models don’t seem quite as posh as their sticker prices suggest. Forward vision is good.

With its third-row seat backs up, the GMC Acadia manages only 12.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Maximum capacity totals 79 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The 2019 Acadia rides and handles like a competent family crossover SUV should: comfortable, composed – even bordering on spry. Whether easing around town or out on the road, families can expect a fairly frugal, capable experience.

Ride comfort is a strong point, as the Acadia’s independent suspension absorbs road imperfections with ease.

Acadias handle quite well in everyday driving, helped by nicely-weighted steering. The driver faces a thick four-spoke steering wheel. Models with V-6 power feel a tad heavier up front. The 4-cylinder’s performance sets no records, but the optional V-6 engine provides more compelling muscle.

With all-wheel drive, a mode-select knob engages sport, towing, or off-road. Switching between two- and four-wheel drive can help save fuel on good-weather days.

All-wheel drive won’t deliver strenuous off-road capabilities, though. The AWD system aims more for smooth and confident behavior in bad weather.

Fuel economy ranks average for a family crossover. With front-drive, the base Acadia is EPA-rated at 21/26 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops those estimates slightly, to 21/25/23 mpg.

As expected, the V-6 is thirstier. The front-wheel drive V-6 is EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive reduces figures to 17/25/20 mpg.

Both engines run on regular gasoline. In 4-cylinder Acadias, stop/start technology can shut down the engine while idling.


The 2019 GMC Acadia is a solid, capable crossover for families that need third-row seating only rarely. Build quality is high and front seats are comfortable. The optional V-6 packs a considerably greater punch than the standard 4-cylinder. As is often the case, the most valuable safety features tend to be included only on expensive models.

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
