GM introduced its three-row crossover lineup in 2006, just before the auto industry got torpedoed by the credit crisis that led into the Great Recession. Four versions hit the showrooms: The 2007 GMC Acadia, followed by the 2007 Buick Enclave, the 2007 Saturn OUTLOOK, and finally the 2008 Chevrolet Traverse. The 2017 GMC Acadia benefits from a complete exterior and interior makeover this year, the first major attention that GM's three-row crossover has received since its debut. The Acadia comes in six trim levels: SL (starting at $29,995) SLE-1 ($35,375); SLE-2 ($35,995); SLT-1 ($39,275); SLT-2 ($42,675); and Denali ($45,845). Add about $2000 for AWD.
Here are some pros and cons for buyers considering a 2017 GMC Acadia.
