GMC’s 2015 Acadia provides plenty of room for the whole family, premium features, and the ability to tow up to 5,000lbs. If you want a new family crossover, come see what GMC has to offer at Gainesville Buick GMC in Gainesville, FL, serving the surrounding cities of Ocala, Newberry, Lake City, and Palatka, FL.
Ford’s Explorer is a favorite family car, but the GMC is a step above it in almost every area you look at.
Both of these SUVs are about the same size, but the GMC offers more useable space. Cargo wise, the Acadia has an extra 3 cubic feet behind the 3rd seat. Fold that down and Acadia beats Explorer by more than 25 cubic feet. When it comes to passenger space, the Acadia has a 3rd row seat that 3 full sized adults can sit in, with 7 inches more shoulder room, and nearly 8 inches more hip room. The front row has more leg, shoulder and hip room too.
For the first 2 year or 24k miles you own a GMC Acadia you will pay nothing for scheduled maintenance. This could add up to thousands of dollars of savings, which makes up a lot of the difference in base price between these 2 SUVs. Ford does not give you any scheduled maintenance coverage with the Explorer. Both companies give you 5 years of roadside assistance, but GMC’s coverage lasts 100k miles, 40k more than Ford.
The base price of these family sized crossovers is about $3,000 apart, with the Acadia being more expensive. But the standard features you get from GMC more than make up for that price difference. For instance, a rearview camera and parking sensors are standard in the Acadia, as is OnStar with a Wi-Fi hotspot. You also get a 6.5” touchscreen interface, USB input and satellite radio. The Ford Explorer doesn’t even come with keyless entry for that lower base price.
For a solid family crossover, with a luxury ride and features and the toughness you expect from GMC, the 2015 GMC Acadia is a real winner. Take one for a spin at Gainesville Buick GMC, right in the heart of Gainesville, FL, serving Newberry, Ocala, Palatka, and Lake City.View Inventory
