The 2020 GMC Acadia comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.New turbocharged four-cylinder engine option.Nine-speed transmission replaces former six-speed unit.Upgraded navigation and entertainment system.New outdoor-oriented AT4 trim level.

Pros
Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any driving situation
Quick acceleration from the optional V6 engine
Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

Cons
Cabin isn't particularly luxurious, even in the priciest trim levels
Some rival crossovers have more cargo and third-row space
Lackluster base engine

The Acadia receives a facelift for 2020, with a new grille, newly standard LED headlights, and revisions to the rear end. There's also a new turbocharged 2.0-liter engine—standard on the SLT and Denali trims—which GMC estimates will have 230 horsepower when it goes on sale late in the model year. The trim lineup has expanded to include an AT4 model, which brings off-road-inspired design (including 17-inch wheels fitted with all-terrain tires) to the Acadia lineup.

Pros
Attractive design,
improved infotainment,
plenty of in-cabin storage space.

Cons
Quality doesn't match price,
cramped third row,
unimpressive fuel economy.

The 2020 GMC Acadia’s expanded lineup and new styling look worth the wait.

Pros
Good looks
Infotainment upgrades worthwhile
Intriguing new turbo-4

Cons
Active safety tech should be standard
A little narrow inside
Push-button shifters not our favorite

Pros
Updated style and interior design
Powertrain options range from sporty performance to efficient hybrid
Sliding second-row seats improve passenger room and cargo utility
Sleek, new rear liftgate design compromises some cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The Escape is fundamentally unchanged for 2018, but there are some tweaks to the lineup and to its standard-equipment offerings.The SEL comes standard with leather-trimmed seating, a power liftgate, heated exterior mirrors, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED running lights.

Pros
Graceful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine,
smooth ride,
attractive and intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Less rear-seat and cargo space than the class leaders,
turbo engines return mediocre fuel economy.
