2019 GMC Acadia Denali
2019 GMC Acadia Denali The 2019 GMC ACADIA has a capacity of up to seven passengers and is a solid, straight-through SUV with the family in mind. Those who know the previous generation Acadia should note that model 2019 is significantly lower than in 2016 and earlier versions. If you’re looking for something without choosing an SUV with a truck as big as the old Acadia, take a look at the Chevrolet sleeper.
For model year 2019, Acadia sees minor updates, including the Black Edition appearance package. Available in the SLT trim, includes 20-inch mechanized aluminum wheels with black accents, black grille, head and taillight headlights, mirror caps, Roof rails and more. The Acadia All Terrain also obtains new 17-inch wheels, and the 2019 Acadia features four new exterior colors: Metallic Dark Sky, Metallic Pepperdust, Metallic red quartz, and Smokey metallic quartz.
The Acadia is available in the SL, SLE, SLT and Denali models, with the ALL Terrain package an option on SLE and SLT vehicles. A cylinder of 2.5 liters of four is standard on most ornaments, but we recommend opting for the optional 3.6-liter V-6, which packages much more power and capacity. The Acadias come in front wheel drive or on all wheels, even if you do not expect off-road chops with the latter, as it is more geared to inclement weather conditions.
While hard to appeal, the Acadia rides and manages as you would like a competent SUV from the family to make, meaning it’s comfortable, compound, and confinándose in Spry.
A highlight of the Acadia experience is its interior, which has a good room for four adults and can fit up to seven passengers in a pinch despite its somewhat narrow footprint. The third row available will not be suitable for most adults, but children should be quite comfortable.
One of the areas that Acadia could support to improve is security technology, as customers must opt for SLT or Denali settings to even have automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and active lane control. While other manufacturers begin to make these features of standard equipment on all their vehicles, ie big competitors like Toyota and Nissan, which would benefit GMC to play along too.
The fuel economy is the center of the package as well, scoring 20 MPG combined with the optional V-6 equipped with all-wheel drive. The 2019 Acadia has a two-box utilitarian design that features a series of interesting curves. Typical of other GMCs, square-off wheel arches make for a more truck-like look, and a chrome strip that ties around the two front rows is an interesting design feature.

Back, the Acadia looks great taillights with a piece of chrome that connects them. Acadias equipped with all-Terrain or New Black Edition packages mark the glitz significantly, while the Denali clipping becomes chrome up to 11.
The interior fittings are nice enough and available in various different fabrics and colors, but the symmetrical design already feels outdated despite being only a few years old. The base engine is an inline-4 2.5-liter which makes 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. Unlike some competitors, this engine does not make use of a turbocharger, but it is likely that it does not need one, especially it has been used for a 6-speed automatic transmission of polished displacement.
The optional powertrain is a strong, silent 3.6-liter V-6, which makes a respectable 310 HP and 271 pound-feet torque. It is available in all the finishes of the SL base and is standard in the Acadia Denali. It is coupled to an automatic 6-Speed also and can be had with all-wheel drive, but the front-wheel drive is standard across the range except in Denali. Those who opt for traction on all wheels get a selection knob so that involves sport, tow and off-road modes, as well as the ability to switch between two and four wheels to save fuel on days in good weather. Just remember to switch back to traction on all wheels on the winter days.
The Acadia has a well-weighted direction through its thick four-spoke steering wheel, and while V-6 models are a little heavier on the front, in general, it handles very well in everyday situations. The standout for Acadia’s driving experience is its independent suspension, which absorbs road imperfections easily, despite riding on wheels as large as 18 or 20 inches at the highest finishing levels. There is one thing to keep in mind: Acadia All Terrain is a lot more than chops. For off-road driving, it only takes a slightly revised traction control mode.
Most clipping levels have optional dual captains in the second row, reducing the total occupancy to 6 people, and the All Terrain package removes the third row seat, but adds a bench seat to the center for up to five Passengers.
The Frontward visibility is good and the front seats are comfortable and adjustable in a myriad of ways. The second row is easily accessible and has a decent room in everything for the overboard seats, but the central seat is a tight squeeze. Speaking of tight tights, the third row is the most suitable for children, as adults of most sizes will find it quite snug.
With the third row intact, the Acadia only manages 12.8 cubic feet of cargo space, barely half its predecessor. However, a maximum load capacity of 79 cubic feet helps alleviate disappointment.
The cockpit makes use of soft-touch materials, but the expensive SLT and Denali embellishments do not feel as elegant as their price points would suggest, although all the acadias we have tried have a feeling of quality built. Each version of the 2019 Acadia gets 7 airbags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and a backup camera. The driver alert Package 1 is optional in SLE-2s and standard in SLT-1s and includes blind spot monitors, rear parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alerts. Those looking for the entire shed will have to intensify to SLT-2 or Denali for the driver Alert Packet 2. This includes low-speed automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors and active lane control, standard features on many opponents
Standard across the range, a rear seat detection system is an orderly feature that reminds you if a child or pet could be in the back seat, but be careful to place bags or other heavy items there because you will get a warning Every time I get out of the vehicle.
The 2019 Acadia has not seen its scores updated by the IIHS yet for 2019, but the agency gave the model 2018 a “good” score in all categories other than headlamps for the sub-par performance of the base halogen lamps, keeping it from the Consideration of the best selection of security.

The NHTSA scored the total traction versions of the 2019 Acadia in five stars overall, but the front unit version oddly received a four-star overall rating due to a slightly higher risk of rollover in the calculations of the Government. The base trim SL is the entrance to the Acadia alignment, and is available only with a 4-cylinder engine. However, all SL models obtain a 7.0-inch touch screen Infotainment system with Apple display and Android auto, 17-inch alloy wheels, three-zone automatic climate control and seven-passenger capacity. The four-way manual driver’s seat is less than desirable, however, and there are no important options available.
The true basis setting for most buyers will probably be the SLE, which comes with the option of available engine and front-or all-wheel drive. The SLE setting is divided into SLE-1 and SLE-2 in terms of options, and the SLE-1 packages satellite radio, floor mats, and not much more. By stepping on the SLE-2, you will have an eight-position electric driver seat, heated front seats, a 8.0-inch touch screen and remote-start capability. The SLE-2 keeps its optional All Terrain Trim package, which adds the OFF-Road mode but eliminates the third row of seats.
The same package is available in the SLT-1 setting, but with 20-inch alloy rims. Other SLT-1 acadias get leather seats, Bose audio, automatic dimming rearview mirror, blind spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts.
The almost full SLT-2 package receives only the V-6 engine and includes front and rear parking sensors, heated rear seats and more.
At the top of the range, the Acadia Denali is almost a luxury vehicle, as can be said for its chrome-plated visual signals, ventilated front seats, and bright 20-inch wheels. Denali and SLT-2 are the only models that offer automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, high beam automatic headlamps and active lane control, with sound warnings and a buzzing driver’s seat.
Let’s face it, the 2019 GMC ACADIA was never going to be a fuel miser, but both the power and transmission options scored well enough to win a 4 out of 10. (Read more about how we qualify cars.)
The four-cylinder base is the leanest of the group, with the fuel economy star coming in the form of a front-wheel drive, 4-cylinder Acadia, which manages 21 mpg in the city, 26 on the road, and 23 combined according to the EPA tests. Traction on all wheels loose those numbers slightly at 21/25/23.
The V-6 is thirstier, predictable, but both engines run on regular fuel, and the V-6s front wheel drive handles 18/25/21 mpg while all-wheel drive brings those numbers down to 17/25/20 mpg. The Acadias with the 4-cylinder also have STOP/START technology that kills the engine while it is at rest to save fuel.
