The GMC Acadia Denali: My Car For A Week
A week or so ago my family got to enjoy a special treat.
We were the proud borrowers of a GMC Acadia Denali for an entire week.
That whole week felt sexy because of it.
I mean, lest you forget our usual ride is the standard-issue minivan.
Nothing against the minivan, but you guys…
The Acadia has the power of a truck, but the finesse of … a… a limo? But without a guy to drive you around and stuff.
It was smooth. It was quiet.
Especially when the kids weren’t with me.
The steering wheel was heated.
I can’t even.
I think heated steering wheels are my love language.
I could probably pull a bunch of info and share about it’s engine and features like that, but let’s be real here…
The color: White Diamonds, The interior: Leather. The radio: XM…
It had double sunroofs…
…heated AND cooled seats, a back-up camera…
…and a tailgate that opened with the push of a button on the remote.
AND the side mirrors told you if there were cars in your blind spots. It was like driving a Magic 8 Ball!
“Is there a car in my blind spot?”
“Signs point to yes.”
I guess the most technical I can get with you and still keep it really real is… it turned great. Is that called a turning ratio? … You know how big cars can sometimes be a beast to turn?
Not this sexy lady.
If I was in a solid purchasing position, this could be a contender. However, in all honesty, our family would probably need something like a Yukon. I found that though it was spacious, if we are packed full of kids with a lot of gear, the trunk space isn’t quite enough.
The trunk was plentiful, but the numbers we have to pack inside, plus the stuff… would push the limits on occasion. I was very glad we had the chance to drive it for awhile because it gave us the chance to see we really do need a bit more space in this season of our family. I was hoping something small would work. Even though this is no small vehicle!
Outside of that personal fit-issue – my whole family agrees, the Acadia is an outstanding vehicle. The Denali line is a great match for us. I mean, it is a luxury line, so…
*I was not paid to write this. I was given the vehicle to drive for a week, with no expectation or conditions to write or share anything. I just wanted to share about my experience. Because I am a sharer.
