2010 GMC Acadia Overview

Test drivers said the 2010 GMC Acadia is attractive and roomy, with a surprisingly luxurious interior for its class. Most reviewers agreed that the Acadia’s strengths outweigh its shortcomings, which include run-of-the-mill performance and some lower-grade interior materials. However, it’s one of the only used crossovers in its class that can seat up to eight, and it has more cargo capacity than nearly every other 2010 midsize SUV.

The 2010 GMC Acadia comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The combination offers fuel economy that’s about average for the class. Standard features on the base model include electronic stability control, automatic headlights and a stereo with an auxiliary input. Upper trim levels can include features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth, an upgraded stereo with a USB port and leather seats.

Other Cars to Consider

If you like the GMC Acadia but want sometime a bit more upscale, consider its corporate cousin, the 2010 Buick Enclave. Test drivers said it’s even roomier inside than the Acadia, and they appreciated its especially quiet, feature-packed interior. The Enclave is so similar to the Acadia that it shares many of its good points, like available eight-passenger seating and class-leading cargo space.

The 2010 Ford Flex doesn’t offer as many seats as the Acadia, with a seating capacity of seven, but reviewers loved its bold, boxy exterior and long list of innovative, family-friendly features. The Flex’s interior is attractive and well-made, and while its performance isn’t exactly thrilling, reviewers said its ride is smooth and comfortable. With available features like a refrigerated console and Ford’s Sync voice-controlled infotainment system, the Flex is a funky and upscale alternative that stands out from the crowd of crossovers.
