And the snow came down; the tree limbs were bending precariously as May ended with a winter blast. The good is that this was another wet snown the watersheds are brimming with precious water and those wheat fields in Eastern Colorado are truly blessed from above.
Another blessing, especially in a snowstorm, is the GMC Acadia all-wheel drive in the driveway. A power SUV with a V6-3.6L engine and an automatic six-speed transmission.
GMC has always been a leading brand for General Motors and the old “Jimmy” trucks are a legend around farms and ranches.
This 2019 is manufactured in Spring Hill, TN. with an American engine and transmission. The Arcadia boasts a five-star overall perfect safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The “Ebony Twilight” metallic paint and black accent tire rims give this vehicle a “Darth Vader” power appearance. Menacing to the road and capable of splashing through sleet, snow, and rough roads to any destination.
Fuel economy is decent for this larger vehicle, with an overall average of 20 mpg. The manufacturer’s suggested list price is $41,100 with some options available, like a sunroof for $1400.
The GMC has the latest safety driver alert package that includes blind side, rear crossing, and lane change alerts. I did not detect a forward warning SST system to avoid a forward object impact.
The interior is roomy with eight-way lumbar seating for the driver, along with dual heated seats and outside mirrors. A Bose eight- speaker sound system was easy to operate with center console and steering wheel adjustments.
GMC offers a five-year/60,000-mile power train warranty on this SUV.
This Acadia is an all-around family and recreational all-wheel drive that is competitively priced and long-lasting, with General Motors service behind the product.
