For a vehicle the size, it get decent fuel economy. Driving the speedlimit sure does help, pushing that much air at 80 really hurts fuel economy. see full GMC Acadia review

Love the fuel economy of the Acadia... we get 19-22mpg in town.. and 22-26mpg on the interstate. Vehicle speed really affects the mileage attained. We get the best mileage at 55-60mph... it really drops when doing 70-80mph.. see full GMC Acadia review

We bought the AWD for safety, but still get only 15-18 mpg. Not horrible, but certainly not great. see full GMC Acadia review

Even with conservative driving over long distance, was not able to get close to EPA MPG. In order to get those numbers I have to depart too far from my normal driving habits - wont happen easily, no fun. Especially when the Acadia is so willing to sprint. see full GMC Acadia review
