At the AJC International Car Show, they always have test drives. General Motors had theirs and I wanted to see what GMC replaced the Envoy with.
And I drove it around downtown Atlanta. It wasn’t bad… at all. Let’s talk specs.
Width: 78.2 in.
Height: 72.8 in.
Length: 200.7 in.
Wheel base: 118.9 in.
18 x 7.5 in. wheels
Base engine size: 3.6 L
Horsepower: 288 hp @ 6300 rpm
Transmission: 6-speed shiftable automatic
EPA mileage est. (cty/hwy): 17/24 mpg
As great as the handling was and as smooth as the ride was, I like it, but not that much to add to my radar. I don’t like the third row of seats, it kind of ruins the trunk space, just like the Envoy XL. It has about the same amount of horsepower as an Envoy, it’s slightly better on gas. I love the shape of it, but if I were to get an Acadia, I would burn that third row.
