5 reasons to buy the 2022 GMC Acadia

1. Strong powertrains

The 2022 GMC Acadia is a three-row SUV with two competent powertrain options. The base model comes standard with a 228-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and a nine-speed automatic transmission that returns an EPA-estimated 25 mpg with front-wheel drive and 24 mpg with all-wheel drive.

 In addition to its good gas mileage, this powerplant provides robust power for highway driving maneuvers. Upgrading to the optional V6 unlocks 310 hp and swift throttle responses at low speed, which is ideal for hauling lots of cargo or climbing steep grades. When properly equipped, the 2022 Acadia can tow an estimated 4,000 lbs.

2. Smooth ride

Despite its larger size and three-row design, the 2022 GMC Acadia is quite nimble on its feet. As you lean into turns, you'll notice how this SUV remains composed with minimal body. The suspension also soaks up road imperfections with precision, making for a plush and comfortable ride that is well-suited to city and suburban lifestyles.

3. Spacious interior

Whether you have a gaggle of kids or need seating for larger groups, the 2022 GMC Acadia is a roomy SUV offering loads of space. The Acadia provides seating for six passengers with the bench seat or seven occupants with second-row captain's chairs (depending on the model you choose) and a maximum of 79 cu-ft of flexible cargo volume. With 39.7 inches of second-row and 29.7 inches of third-row legroom, adults will enjoy comfortable accommodations with room to stretch out. The second-row sliding seat also makes it easy to access the third row.

4. Impressive driver assists

You'll feel in command behind the wheel of the 2022 Acadia. This SUV comes standard with a suite of driver aids for added peace of mind. Automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, and rear cross-traffic alert help you avoid potential obstacles, while lane change alert and lane-keeping assist add to your confidence in heavy traffic. Automatic high beams also improve visibility on dark roads, and front pedestrian braking proves helpful while driving in the city.

5. User-friendly tech

The 2022 GMC Acadia comes with an intuitive infotainment system, a responsive eight-inch touchscreen display, and a user-friendly menu to make finding and adjusting the SUV's settings extremely easy. Additionally, all models include standard wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capabilities for seamless smartphone integration. Built-in Amazon Alexa capabilities also make it possible for your personal digital assistant to join you on road trips.
