2017 GMC Acadia MPG
GM is claiming 22 city and 28 HWY for the new Acadia with the newly available 2.5 Liter engine.
All I can tell you is: no way.
During a week with the Equinox, (Using that same engine) all I was able to get around town was 18. And yes, around 27/28 on the freeway.
So there is no way this larger SUV is getting 22 in the city.
And, they claim 17/25 for the V6. But wait! The current, 700 pounds heavier one, is rated at 17/24.
That’s right, just a gain of 1 mile per gallon on the freeway.
Imagine all the engineering work it took to gain just 1MPG!
This is really weird, in a bad way. After all these years, an all new model is just getting a 1MPG improvement.
Oh sure, they’ll advertise the hell of that 22/28 number. From an engine almost no one will get.
Very disappointing. Especially since GM has a great, smooth and powerful 2.0 Liter Turbo engine available.
