Performance and Handling

Engine and Transmission

Under the hood, the 2015 GMC Acadia features a robust 3.6-liter V6 engine. The SLE and SLT models deliver 281 horsepower, while the Denali trim boosts this to 288 horsepower. All models come with a six-speed automatic transmission, offering smooth gear transitions. Front-wheel drive is standard, but for those navigating the diverse terrain around Jackson, all-wheel drive is available.

Driving Experience

The Acadia is designed for comfort and ease of handling. Its size, while offering ample interior space, can feel a bit unwieldy in tighter spots. However, the V6 engine ensures adequate power for everyday driving needs. Whether you're cruising through the streets of Cape Girardeau or heading on a family trip to Dexter, the Acadia provides a reliable and enjoyable driving experience.

Safety Features in the 2015 GMC Acadia

Standard Safety Equipment

Safety is a top priority in the 2015 GMC Acadia. Every model comes equipped with antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front seat side-impact airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. Additionally, a rearview camera and rear parking sensors are standard, providing extra peace of mind whether you're navigating busy streets in Poplar Bluff or parking in Perryville.

Advanced Safety Options

For enhanced safety, the higher trims, such as the SLT-2 and Denali, offer advanced features like blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning. These features make the Acadia a smart choice for families who prioritize safety in their vehicle.

CarSmart Pro Tip Of the Day

When shopping for your next vehicle at CarSmart Of Jackson, consider the convenience and comfort features that can elevate your driving experience. For instance, cruise control is a fantastic feature for those long drives, allowing you to maintain a steady speed without constant manual adjustments.

Keyless entry is another modern convenience that makes accessing your vehicle effortless. No more fumbling for keys—just a simple press of a button and you're in. Once inside, heated seats can make a world of difference during those cold Missouri winters, providing instant warmth and comfort.

Driver seat power adjustments are essential for finding your perfect driving position, ensuring you stay comfortable on every journey. Pair that with steering controls, which allow you to manage your audio and cruise control settings without taking your hands off the wheel, and you have a recipe for a truly enjoyable drive.

Lastly, always prioritize child safety features when choosing a vehicle. Many of our models come equipped with advanced child safety systems to ensure your little ones are secure and protected at all times.
