2017 Toyota Highlander vs GMC Acadia: Versatility Is Not Going To Be Enough

By  | 

The Toyota Highlander is versatile and good looking enough but it is not the most stunning SUV in the market. The GMC Acadia, on the other hand, is all about the space. So if you had to pick, which one would it be?

The GMC Acadia will be coming in with a 2.5-liter I-4 engine that will be mated to a six-speed auto transmission. The engine will be offering about 190hp and 190lb ft of torque and will return about 21mpg in the city and 26mpg on the highway. The Acadia can sit up to eight people but some people are still not too happy that the infotainment system is not being off as a standard feature.

The Toyota Highlander, on the other hand, will come in with a 2.7 liter inline 4 engine that will be delivering about 185hp and 184lb ft of torque. The engine will be mated to a six-speed auto transmission and will return about 20mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway.

The GMC Acadia will retail for $30,820 while the Toyota Highlander will retail for $27,837.
