The Santa Fe receives a visual freshening for 2021 that includes bolder front-end styling and improvements to its interior. Three new powertrains are offered: A 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the standard 2.4-liter unit, a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder replaces the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter, and a hybrid variant powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor joins the lineup.

Pros
Relative bargain compared to rivals,
relaxed demeanor,
nicely-equipped cabin.

Cons
Nonhybrid models could be more fuel efficient,
tight rear seat headroom,
no third-row option.

GMC has made a few packaging changes to the Acadia for 2021. The Pro Safety Plus package, which includes several driver-assistance features, is now standard on SLT, AT4, and Denali. An Elevation Edition package is now available on the SLE and SLT and includes 20-inch wheels and black exterior accents. A heated steering wheel joins the Premium package for SLT and AT4 trims. .

Pros
Square-jawed styling,
intuitive infotainment interface,
cargo-friendly interior.

Cons
Costs more than interior materials suggest,
tight third-row passenger space,
mediocre fuel economy.

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

Pros

Push-button shifters not our favorite
