The GMC Acadia is a crossover vehicle, which is basically a vehicle that looks like a sport utility vehicle (SUV), but drives like a car. The crossover body is built on a car body rather than a light-duty truck platform, as SUVs are. Crossovers provide a spacious interior and flexible cargo capacity like an SUV, but are unable to tow and boast other off-road capabilities that an SUV has. The Acadia comes in four styles, or trim levels:  SLE-1, SLE-2, SLT-1, and SLT-2. There are many appealing features of the GMC Acadia in Kansas City.


 Although this vehicle is not generally expected to tow much weight, there is the option of adding a hitch for a few hundred dollars. The body also has power door mirrors, a spoiler, four doors, and a dual exhaust. The two higher styles also boast heated door mirrors and turn signal indicator mirrors. The three highest trim levels have a power liftgate.

Convenience and Entertainment

All styles of the Acadia have a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, emergency communication system, remote keyless entry, power front windows, speed control, beverage holders, rear HVAC, and air conditioning. They also have a radio, MP3 decoder, and CD player, with the controls being mounted on the steering wheel. There are either six or ten speakers, depending on the style.


All trim levels of the Acadia boast superior safety features. These include traction control, immobilizer, electronic stability, ABS brakes, dual front and side impact airbags, panic alarm, overhead airbag, and brake assist. Security systems are available in the SLT-1 and SLT-2 trim levels.


All four models are a six-speed automatic transmission, with a V-6 engine. The fuel tank can hold 22 gallons, with the average gas mileage being sixteen to seventeen miles per gallon. On highways, the gas mileage may jump to 23-24 miles per gallon. All styles come with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option for all styles.


Seven or eight people can be seated in a GMC Acadia in Kansas City, depending on the trim level. All styles have a front center armrest with storage, front bucket seats, and a split-bench seat on the third row. There are options for leather upholstery, as well as other upgrades depending on the trim model.
