Your '19/'20 Acadia impressions

Recommended Posts

We often "discuss" going to a one vehicle couple.  I'm a pickup fan and her comfort is in small, "practical" cars.  The Acadia appears to be a respectable compromise and she will probably be fine with it if the price is right.   The problem with compromises is that sometimes nobody turns out happy!  I want to be proactive as we just sold our travel trailer and my arguments for keeping the truck are weaker than ever!   I'm confident that there are members here who have downsized to a mid-sized SUV and hoping you have some insights to share.

I just read that the Traverse is basically the same as the Acadia but roomier.  I am also seeing the Hyundai Palisade as a possibility.  It has more of a traditional "Suburban" type style that I like.  Downsizing homes and vehicles is something many of us are fortunate enough to face.  I rank the prospect of going to a single, smaller vehicle right alongside a prostate exam.  I don't look forward to either, but know I'll be better off in the long-term!   I know many members have already downsized their stables and would appreciate hearing opinions.

We have the same issue. 2015 Silverado and 2017 Acadia. Both have needed  warranty work and if we had only one vehicle, we would be stuck renting at our expense. Keeping two vehicles.

Yes, it is very seldom that we both need to drive separately at the same time.   However when these occasions occur, they are significant.   Admittedly, I also like having a vehicle I can call my "own".  After 40+ years of marriage I know everything is "ours"  but  using the terms his and hers appropriately helps to keep a relationship healthy!

Hey fellow BC guy...

Mostly on your note of this going to a small practical vehicle... the Acadia is not a small vehicle IMO. Perhaps a bit smaller compared to a pickup (never owned one, rarely driven) or a minivan (owned 3, either the wife or winter vehicles). But definitely not small regardless.

That said I came from a Z06 / minivan (late fall to early spring) combo, and am very happy with the Acadia. My wife drives a Rogue, which I would actually consider a small vehicle, one that you would likely not want as your sole vehicle (nor would I).

Let us know what you decide on.
