In a new round of testing by IIHS, the 2018 GMC Acadia topped all domestic brands and also top-sellers the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander in an important passenger-side safety test. The Acadia scored Good overall on the small frontal overlap test which simulates the vehicle hitting a pole or another object with just the front corner of the vehicle. The Ford Explorer's airbags malfunctioned and the Jeep Grand Cherokee saw big cabin intrusion due to a weak crash structure. Both scored the lowest possible overall grade.  The GMC Acadia joins the Kia Sorento and VW Atlas in earning the top overall score of Good.

      U.S. News & World Report is run by and staffed by colleagues of GM-Trucks.com. Each month they scour the best deals in the country to list out the most notable. This month, GM products earned spots on two of their lists. The 2018 Acadia is on both the 7 Best Cars to Buy Now and also October's Best New Car Deals. U.S. News Autos reports that GM is offering $4,000 cash back on that popular model. The 2018 Chevy Tahoe appears on the second list for its special offer of $3,000 cash back if buyers finance through GM.

      General Motors has moved further along in the testing regimen for the all new 2020 Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon full-size sport utility vehicles. The SUV pair were recently spotted on public roads, still camouflaged, but showing off significant details and clues about the new vehicles.
