2012 Acadia-Roomy Interior with Hint of Aggression

The 2012 GMC Acadia...Test one Today at Coulter Tempe

The 2012 GMC Acadia sits comfortably positioned near the top of the affordable midsize SUV class for solid performance, a roomy interior, a muscular exterior with a hint of aggression and is a terrific vehicle for families who simply can’t face the prospect of life in a minivan.

There are five trims for the 2012 Acadia: SL, SLE, SLT-1, SLT-2, and the Denali, all with optional AWD. There are only minor changes over the 2011, most notably blind-spot sensors and hill-hold assist standard on the SLT and Denali models. Under the hood there’s a 3.6-liter V6 with a six-speed automatic. The Acadia handles smoothly, with good control and has a towing capacity of 5,200 pounds.

Outside the Acadia has just enough edgy styling to put it ahead of the pack in terms of aggressive looks. The Denali trim is downright flashy with dark tinted windows and 20-inch alloy wheels. GMC did not put this one together to be a “Mom wagon.” Dad will feel just fine behind the wheel. In fact, he’ll be quite comfortable because the Acadia’s interior is upscale and roomy.

The 2012 GMC Acadia provides a spacious and roomy cockpit

There’s seating for eight on the base model, but with second-row captain’s chairs, at no additional cost, you can haul seven in real comfort. LATCH child seat connectors are included in the second row outboard seating positions. The base SL has nice standard for the class including an MP3 compatible stereo with eight speakers and a three-month subscription for satellite radio. Keyless entry, cruise control, and interior chrome trim are also standard.

Knock up one trim level to the SLE, for about $35,000, and you pick up power front seats, Bluetooth, an inside auto-dimming rearview mirror, and remote vehicle start. One more level, the SLT-1, nets automatic tri-zone climate control, a premium Bose audio unit, leather appointed first and second row, and heated front seats for $38,800. The top-of-the-line luxury Denali starts at  $43,900 with front heated and cooled seats, a head-up display, two panel powered sunroof, leather wrapped wheel, wood accents, and sound dampening.

With five out of five stars for overall crash testing from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and four stars for rollovers, the Acadia is about as safe as it gets in this form factor. The fact that a rearview camera is standard on all models above the base significantly increases the Acadia’s safety profile.

The 2012 GMC Acadia is large, roomy, and well-appointed with a solid safety profile. The exterior is just aggressive enough to get you past the depressing “family hauler” vibe and if you’re willing to move up to a Denali, there’s real luxury to be had. This is definitely one for your test drive list.
