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.

Two years into the new model and the GMC Acadia is more popular than ever. With that in mind, few substantial changes are coming down the line in 2019. Look for more information on a special "Black Edition" Acadia in the near future.

Ok so this is my first post on hear but im not new to this place ive used this forum thousands of times in the past as I am only 18years old i started off in a 03 gmc 1500 short bed reg cab stick shift, but up here in mass 2wd wasnt gonna cut it so after that I had a trailblazer for the past year and now Ive been lucky enough to get back into trucks with my new 1500 that i'm leasing, its an LT Z71 with 4wd and the 5.3. Im perfectly happy with how the trukc is as of now but I definitely want/"need' it to be leveled as my whole family Cousins, aunts, uncles, father, and mother have atleast a leveling kit or just a beefy vehicle as now im the only one without some ground clearance, but i dont know which leveling kit is the best choice as i want to stay under 3 inches. So if anyone could help me it would be great id like to know the best kits under a few categories. 1-Best ride. 2-Best bang for your buck. 3- Eastiest install. 4- Best offroad capability. 5- The best kit in general.
I have been told the Bilstien 510 is a great choice but before i pull any triggers i'd like to know all my options as I won't be getting the kit within a month or two as the truck only has 900 miles. Thank you
