2013 Acadia Denali test drive review. You deserve this kind of luxury
This rig is powered by a 3.6-liter, direct-injected V6 that puts out 288-hp and 270-lb/ft of torque. I have driven older Acadias in the past, and they were pretty underpowered, but this setup isn’t bad. You aren’t going to win the Summer Nationals in it, but nobody is going to run over you either. Expect a combined fuel rating of about 19-mpg, which is more than acceptable in a vehicle that is this big with this much equipment.
Just like having to leave your hotel when the vacation is over, I eventually had to give up the keys to the Acadia Denali. Getting back behind the wheel of my 17-year-old Chevy was definitely a reality check. But if you have the funds to reside in an Acadia Denali of your own, by all means, do it. You deserve it.
