So we got a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali
The previous GMC Acadia was an odd one. Essentially a minivan in functionality, but disguised as an SUV, the Acadia was actually more practical and spacious inside than the Yukon. The new Acadia is a smaller vehicle as it undergoes a full reboot.
The new Acadia certainly looks better, especially in this Denali form. The proportions are more taut, although it barely shares any design traits with any other GMC product.
Inside, there’s abundant use of padded surfaces and modern tech, so it is among the best in its class on that front.
The Acadia Denali drives well too, as it gets adaptive suspension and all sorts of driving modes. More on that in the full review.
