Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Sitting atop the Mercedes-Benz SUV hierarchy is the spacious and indisputably luxurious GLS-Class. It's all new for 2020 and it has big shoes to fill—we've named the outgoing GLS-Class to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list for three straight years—but our first impressions of this new big Benz are very good.

Pros
Tech-rich cabin, spacious in all three rows, refined powertrains.

Cons
Anonymous styling, fussy infotainment system, heavily optioned models carry high price tags

By:

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is a three-row crossover SUV that redefines luxurious family transport.

Pros
Sublime demeanor
Posh interior
Strong turbocharged engines
Impressive dynamics
AMG, Maybach editions sure to come

Cons
Hefty price
Hefty curb weight
Hefty fuel consumption
Occasional cheap touch

By:

New styling in line with other Mercedes SUVs.Powerful mild hybrid powertrains.Standard adjustable air suspension.All-new third GLS generation launched for 2020.

Pros
MBUX infotainment is outstanding
Tops in comfort and easily seats adults in all three rows
Flexible cargo capacity
Responsive powertrains feel like driving a smaller SUV

Cons
Not as off-road-worthy as some rugged competitors
Somewhat vague steering with large wheels and thin tires
MBUX has a steep learning curve

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

By: 
edmunds.com

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
