Safety, Reliability & Mileage

Acadias built after January 2011 are Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Picks, meaning they scored the institute's highest rating "Good" in all four crash tests the institute performs: front, side, rollover and rear, and have standard electronic stability systems.

The Acadia is predicted to have worse than average reliability.

With front-wheel drive, the Acadia gets 17/24 mpg city/highway, compared with 16/23 mpg with all-wheel drive.
