2017 GMC Acadia

I do like this. Sure, it's not that original. But it is very tasteful with great proportions.
And it does look more upscale than before.
The grille especially looks much more refined than the blunt design they've been using for a while.

It is a bit smaller than before. (And about 700 pounds lighter). But can still seat up to 7 people.

Now the base engine is a 2.5 Liter. Which, I think, is a terrible idea.
I just drove a Chevrolet Equinox (review coming soon) for a week with that same engine.
And it was slow!!! I cannot imagine that weak engine in a larger/heavier SUV.

Otherwise the 3.6 Liter V6 is still an option. And the only one you'd really want.
(And from my previous experience with it, it's not that fast either...)
