With better fuel economy than a truck-based SUV, this copious interior, three-row passenger utility vehicle with great towing capability, 2015 GMC Acadia is practical and very appealing on many levels. The extremely amenable ride quality and generous cargo capacity behind the third row, a cabin that has abundant seating for up to eight passengers and has figured in the top crash test scores makes it one of the top choices in the large SUV segment.
One of the Acadia's best features is its smooth and quiet ride. Unlike other large truck-based SUVs, the Acadia can be driven daily on pot-hole spiked freeways and uneven asphalt in exceeding comfort. You'll have no fear picking up the family at the airport with a huge luggage capacity, and seats for everyone! The 2015 GMC Acadia delivers a nice balance between space, utility, secure handling and an extraordinarily comfortable ride.
The Acadia features an attractive interior, as most of the areas you will touch are padded and of solid quality. Front occupants will enjoy ample head and legroom, as will the second-row occupants. This row can be slid all the way back opening even more space. Getting into the third row is reasonably easy, on par with other vehicles in the large SUV segment; the third row is actually roomy enough for two adults to fit in comfortably or three kids happily.
Performance, Safety, and Technology
The V6 engine has ample power to get the Acadia up to speed on the highway and it can tow up to 5,200 pounds when properly equipped, a very respectable number in the crossover segment.
This trim, the SLT-1, has all the features on the baser models listed below and adds: 19-inch wheels, foglamps, variable-effort steering, heated mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery in the first and second rows (third row vinyl), heated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, rear-seat audio controls with headphone jacks and a 10-speaker Bose sound system.

There are also dual USB charge-only ports on the rear of the center console.
