Expert Reviews

Expert reviews:

Pros
Comfortable and upscale interior
Touchscreen interfaces are intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Price with options runs higher than average for the class
1.5-liter turbocharged engine is disappointing
Less cargo space behind the back seat than in most competitors

GMC hasn't made any big changes to the Terrain for 2021, but it has given the compact SUV a boost in the driver-assistance department. The Pro Safety Plus package now comes standard across the lineup and includes automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and more.

Pros
Spacious cabin and cargo area,
efficient powertrains,
brisk acceleration with the optional turbo four.

Cons
A few cheap interior bits,
annoying shifter buttons,
expensive compared with class-leading SUVs.

Pros
Roomy cabin
Good fuel economy
Refined ride

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.

By: 
caranddriver.com

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
