Overall, the Acadia Denali represents a great model for families who are in need of a lot of space. Even if its price may seem quite high, most experts agree that it is worth the extra money. The Acadia offers interior space on par with any other SUV, and a comfortable drive that is hard to match. The great fuel economy and the aggressive and attractive exterior are a plus. Other additional perks can include an audio system that incorporates a USB port, as well as a Bose sound system with 10 speakers, rearview camera system, XM satellite radio, and an 8-way power adjustable driver's seat.
The Acadia Denali SUV has comfy seats and the acres of personal space add to the overall comfort. In addition, the sliding and folding 2nd row captain's chairs, and the adult-friendly 3rd row provide ample seating and storage space. However, the car is quite heavy and weighs in at 2 tons. Its acceleration is actually quite impressive, contrary to what others expect. The 3-zone climate control, the upgraded stereo, the dual-pane roof, and the heads-up display that projects the car's directions and speed right in the windshield add to the overall package.
