GMC Acadia SLT2
- Price: $40,965
- Cost of options: $1,000
- Gas mileage: 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway
With scads of room for seven, and still enough cargo capacity to haul 24 cubic feet of cargo, the Acadia SLT2 will transport you and yours to the tailgate party in style. With all but the leather-covered front seats folded, cargo space swells to 116 cubic feet.
The optional technology package includes redundant controls for the Bose 10-speaker surround-sound audio system in the cargo area.
With the SLT2 model, we were able to check off nearly all of our wish-list items, such as iPod interface, 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, backup camera and rear parking sensors. A 115-volt, three-prong household-style power outlet is an option.
GMC matches a 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 to a six-speed, driver-shiftable, automatic transmission to turn the front wheels.
