2017 GMC Acadia: AutoGuide.com Utility of the Year Contender

Of all the new crossovers to hit the market in the last year, none has undergone more drastic changes than the 2017 GMC Acadia.

Like its fraternal twins, the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse, the Acadia was always a bit of a bloated and awkward entry in the market, offering a similar amount of space to the GMC Yukon without the sheer utility. However, all that changes for 2017, with the Acadia downsized significantly to slot neatly into the midsize segment.

Outside of its name, this new Acadia proffers very little that ties it to its predecessor. More than seven inches (178 millimeters) was chopped from its overall length and wheelbase, while almost four inches (102 mm) was removed from its width and height. The result is a right-sized offering that now registers as one of the smaller entries in the segment. Measuring 193.6 (4,917 mm) from tip to tail, the Acadia certainly isnít small but itís noticeably smaller than competitors like the Ford Explorer. The biggest return on the Acadiaís downsizing investment is at the scales, with roughly 700 lb (318 kg) cut from its curb weight.
