With this in mind, how do you go about determining which of these two vehicles is the best option for satisfying all of your daily driving needs? Well, here at Luther Family Buick GMC, we're here to help. To get the inside scoop on these two vehicles, along with how they compare to one another, we invite you to read on below...


The 2017 GMC Acadia vs. The 2017 Ford Explorer

  • When it comes to pricing, the 2017 GMC Acadia aims to please. Not only does the base level model come better equipped than the new Ford Explorer, but the Acadia also remains the more affordable option when considering more well-equipped trim levels.

  • While the Ford Explorer does offer more engine options, it's the GMC Acadia that performs better with only two powertrains to choose from. Opt for the available V6 engine, and you'll enjoy more power, and better handling.

  • This year's new GMC Acadia offers more seating configurations, and is able to seat passengers more comfortably than the Ford Explorer. When opting for higher trim levels, you'll also enjoy far more luxurious features than if you'd chosen the Ford Explorer.

  • Unlike the Ford Explorer, the GMC Acadia offers more standard features. While this year's Explorer comes standard with a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, Ford's SYNC voice control interface, a rearview camera, a USB port, and Ford's MyKey system, the entry level Acadia comes outfitted with a rearview camera, push-button start, automatic tri-zone climate control, satellite radio, five USB ports, Bluetooth, a 7-inch touch screen with IntelliLink, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.
