2010 GMC Acadia

GMC Acadia SLT1 AWD: Certainly one of the best, if not the best product in GM’s portfolio. For a full-size crossover SUV, restrained, modern and attractive styling makes it approachable. Open the door and the driver meets one of the most thoughtfully conceived and executed interiors of any SUV/crossover on the market. Everything is right where it should be and there is real space for real full sized families. It is the working definition of the sporty minivan that can do anything and the driving experience doesn’t disappoint.

The Acadia is a big SUV, yet it drives half a size smaller than it is. There is real feedback through the steering and while it isn’t exactly tossable, the ride/handling combination is better than its direct competitors. The engine incorporated latest technologies for decent power and exceptional fuel economy for an 8 passenger SUV. The Acadia has the right range of trim packages and features so that there is something for everyone. To our eyes, it is the best looking of the GM triplets built on the Acadia’s platform.

The crossovers listed below represent the best for 2010. Click on any of the names below to learn why they are winners.

“Sometimes large SUVs can be intimidating and it takes some adjustment time before it becomes comfortable driving around 5,000 pounds of steel and glass. This wasn’t the case with the Acadia.”

    A few crossovers that nearly made onto our top 5 list was the VW Tiguan, Ford Escape, and Subaru Outback.

    One crossover that almost made the top 5, but got dropped was the new 2011 Kia Sportage. The exterior and interior design was done really well, and it is a great value with all the goodies that are included as standard equipment. One thing we hated was the strong on-center feel of the electric steering and the stiff suspension setup.

    The Q5 *is* a no brainer. Great review and great vehicle.

    I’ve driven a few of these cars and the Ford Flex is the standout here.

    It is just so unexpected with its power, economy an handling. It drives like a touring car. Interior is awesome btw!

    I love the styling but understand it can be polarizing. It’s kind of square and ganster looking. Do you folks like the styling? Do women like it? Hmmm…
