SUVs are often known for being big and bulky with poor fuel economy. But things are quickly changing with the help of automotive brands like GMC. For 2017, GMC's fully redesigned Acadia is smaller, lighter and more fuel efficient. Along with the Acadia's quiet, comfortable ride, attractive styling and many features, consumers are labeling this ride a must-have.
When seeking high fuel economy, many SUVs remain a poor choice. But not the 2017 GMC Acadia.

The Acadia's new physique is 700 pounds lighter, which has worked wonders in improving its fuel economy. While a V6 engine is available for the Acadia, its new four-cylinder base engine is the optimal choice for maximum fuel efficiency.
Consumers rave about the fuel savings made possible by the Acadia, but that's not the only perk of this SUVs weight loss. Along with its smaller carbon footprint, it is also easier to maneuver, especially around corners – a bonus for those who sit behind the wheel.

There are four main trim levels to choose from on the Acadia's 2017 lineup – the SL, SLE, SLT and Denali. While the Acadia's upper trim levels are quite popular, there is much to be said about the base SL.

This trim draws consumers in with its content list full of upgrades, like an auto-dimming rearview mirror, color infotainment display, leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. The stereo system also upgrades from six speakers to eight.
SUVs do have one particular safety feature that's built right into their overall design, and that's ride height – a perk that increases driver visibility. But, there's much more that the Acadia offers that makes it safe on the road, and that's high-tech features. Depending on trim level, consumers can opt for either the Driver Alert package 1 or Driver Alert package 2. The Driver Alert package 1 equips the Acadia with a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alerts, and rear parking sensors. Opt for the Driver Alert package 2 and receive all of the previously mentioned safety features, plus: lane keep assist, low-speed frontal collision mitigation, automatic high beams and front parking sensors. Consumers are also fond of the safety alert driver seat that buzzes when safety alerts are triggered.
