2018 GMC Acadia Denali Review Test Drive 3.6 L V6

The GMC Acadia is a sporty crossover that was introduced by General Motors, an American car company, in 2007. The first copies of this model went on sale in December 2006 from dealers in the United States, and in January 2007 in Canada. Its predecessors were three minivans: GMC Safari, GMC Envoy XL / XUV and Pontiac Montana SV6. The main competitors today are the Lexus RX and Acura MDX. The GMC Acadia crossover is based on the GM Lambda platform with a long wheelbase, which is 3020 mm. This platform is also used in cars Saturn Outlook and Buick Enclave. Its use has reduced the center of gravity of the car, which added stability when driving on the highway and in corners. The length of the crossover is 5108 mm, width - 2004 mm, and height - 1849 mm. As for the exterior, then it is pretty nice for GMC Acadia, even has some distant similarities with SUVs such as the BMW X5 and VW Touareg. Smooth body lines and sporty design give the car a dynamic look.

Under the hood of the GMC Acadia, an economical High Feature LY7 V6 engine from General Motors with a 3.6-liter capacity is installed, which can also be found in the Cadillac CTS model. The power of this power unit is 267 hp. The engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission 6T75. The car is available in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions.

The GMC Acadia model has excellent driving performance. This is facilitated by the first applied StabiliTrak electronic motion stabilization system. And the intelligent all-wheel drive system provides increased traction on slippery roads without driver intervention. The front suspension has a McPherson design, and the rear one was designed according to a new “H” design, which made it more compact and more mobile. Power steering comes as standard, but a variable effort system is offered by the manufacturer as an option. Also as standard, the car is equipped with 18-inch wheels and disc brakes with anti-lock braking system ABS on all wheels. As an option, 19-inch wheels can be installed.

The highly durable body design makes the sports crossover a fairly safe vehicle. There are six airbags in the passenger compartment: two with a two-stage actuation system are located at the driver and the passenger, two more are built into the backs of the front seats, and the remaining two are in the headrests of the rear seats. Like the Volvo XC9 car, the Acadia model is equipped with a system that is responsible for the deployment of airbags in the event of a car tipping over.

The interior of the GMC Acadia can be configured for seven or eight passengers. With the addition of the second and third row of seats, a volume of almost 558 liters is formed for various loads. Standard equipment includes three-zone climate control, parking sensors, a remote engine start system, DVD, a navigation system and an excellent stereo system from Bose.

Production of the crossover GMC Acadia is carried out in the present.
