Behind the Wheel: 2013 GMC Acadia Denali

By Jacob Brown | April 05, 2013
You're looking at getting a crossover that will share parking lot space with your friends' Land Rovers and Audis. Hovering in the $50,000 atmosphere is also the 2013 GMC Acadia Denali, the top of the heap when it comes to the Denali range. GMC has tried to reposition itself as the gentleman among ruffians. And for 2013, it has been completely refreshed, with a bold, new front end, an updated interior, and a revised ride. And yet, despite its oodles of amenities, pleasant ride, and bold looks, it decidedly falls flat. Having been on the market since 2007, the GMC Acadia has been one of the anchors to a strong lineup of trucks; the 2013 Acadia Denali somehow doesn't live up to the lofty expectations we had for it. Read our 2013 GMC Acadia Road Test to find out why.
