The GMC Acadia Denali: My Car For A Week

by | Mar 25, 2015 | Travel | 1 comment

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.
