So we got a 2016 GMC Acadia Denali

2015 GMC Acadia Denali in the UAE

If the regular GMC Acadia is not nearly enough in terms of equipment, there is the GMC Acadia Denali to up the bling factor. We kept one for a few days to use as family transportation, during Dubai’s worst sandstorm ever, three weeks ago.

The latest Acadia’s attractiveness is debatable at best, but at least it looks tougher than the last one, as much as a people-carrier can look tough.

The interior is a huge improvement over the old one, retaining its practicality while finally addressing the horrendous hard-plastic nonsense materials they used before.

Space is great, as can be expected from a vehicle with an extra-long wheelbase. It’s much more spacious than the Yukon actually.

There’s more to the revamped Acadia — actually, the revamp was back in 2013 — but it’s safe to say that, looks aside, it is one of the better people-carriers currently available, short of a minivan. More in the full review.

What do you think?



  1. Hi Mashfique,
    Does it have any off road ability at all or is it strictly for tarmac?

  2. Basically this car and Chevy Traverse are the same car in terms of body & engine… I got myself a 2015 Traverse… What I liked in this car the ability to move forward and backwards the middle seat to accommodate tall passengers in the last row. If you push the middle seat all way back, the space is really competing with large sedans. Also with normal driving manner, I am getting 11.5L/100Km of fuel consumption with is great for a car that weight more than 2 tons.

  3. Had this car way back in 2008….was loaded to the gills then and a remains a beauty as a carrier…unfortunately not much has been added….
    Lane departure, adaptive cruise,side/frontal cams, Forward collision etc, lane departure warning….all have made their way across in other competing cars…with the same price tag or less!
    and worst of all, how can they charge nearly 200k and not even offer a Push Start button?
