So we got a 2016 GMC Acadia Denali
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.
