The 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain Can Handle Any Road
Just because you need a family car doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it.
GMC delivers sporty but roomy buyers the best of both worlds with the 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain, a crossover that provides optimal versatility, bold power, a host of technology features and more alongside enhanced off-road capability.
“Aesthetically, the 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain certainly looks the part,” writes The Drive reviewer Evan Yates. “Unlike its blinged-out sibling the Denali, there’s virtually no shiny chrome anywhere to be found.”
GMC’s All Terrain lineup has always captured an aggressive stance, something Yates dubs “menacing” on the 2017 Acadia, even though the latest model is more trim than previous iterations.
“GMC gambled and won big by actually making the 2017 Acadia considerably smaller than the previous model,” the reviewer explains, detailing that this model sheds 700 pounds and six inches. “Certainly a bold move on GMC’s part, and I applaud them for it because it makes the Acadia livable on a daily basis.”
A solid, powerful fit
Not only is the 2017 Acadia livable, but it’s comfortable as well, with the All Terrain featuring bold, burnt orange seating for five embossed with the All Terrain logo. Active noise cancellation ensures for a quiet ride, while an available Cargo Management System with cargo tie-downs, rails and stabilizer makes loading and unloading a breeze.
And when you’re seated in the “Kalahari” colored driver’s seat, the All Terrain’s 3.6L V6 paired with Active Fuel Management and advanced All-Wheel drive means that efficiency and control are directed where they’re needed.
“Driving the 2017 Acadia All Terrain on a daily basis during typical commutes is not only easy but invigorating at times,” reveals Yates, who praises the All Terrain’s 310 horsepower and nimble cornering.
And when it comes to the big question, the All Terrain reviewer had a ready answer.
“The 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain does quiet well off the beaten path,” he praises. “With the drive selector dialed into the All Terrain setting, which activates the twin-clutch, all-wheel-drive system that automatically transfers power where required, not once did I have wheel spin or felt as if I were in a jam.”
A winner on all terrains
Yates concludes his review with a wish for slightly larger tires or a bit more ground clearance, but his support is unwavering.
“The 2017 GMC Acadia All Terrain genuinely lives up to its distinction,” he writes. “It can wear that red badge with pride along with those behind the wheel.”
