GMC Acadia Real World MPG



  • I have the 2013 Acadia and so far I've only had to fill up every other week. That's about the same I was doing with my Pontiac Torrent.
    At 620/630 miles on the odometer the average MPG is 15.1 ( I have yet to reset it though since I bought it) But to me that's pretty good for a new car. It all depends how it's been driven.

    I've seen other people who get 21 - 23 MPG on their Acadia's.
  • I have a 2011 Acadia SLT-1 2WD that we bought a little over 2 years ago. I have approx. 27K miles on it and have never gotten anywhere near what the sticker says (17/24mpg). I have taken it to the dealer 4 times and each time they say "everything is computerized and if there was anything wrong, the check engine light would come one". "it has to be driving habits/etc.".

    I don't have a lead foot and am a normal driver, but when your combined city/highway economy is approx 15/mpg, there is something not right but no one can seem have an answer for the issue. very frustrating. it's almost like it doesn't shift correctly sometimes, there is a "slip" in the shifting, or somethign like that. not sure what else to do.
  • Acadia can get good MPG if you drive it slow. It will never get sticker 23 MPG at 65-70 mph, but may get it at 50-55 mph.
  • 2011 Acadia Denali - NEVER gets posted milage...ever! Not even close. Tires aired up to recommended pressure, service at the recommended times, hell I put it in neutral and coast as much as possible etc., all for not. I like poking fun at myself about the lump of coal I bought at gatherings. Too bad actually like the vehicle overall, they just can't deliver get 100%. Mileage though really pisses me off and get this...service advisor said go to shell instead of mobile, might squeeze another mpg out of it. I know why he is a service writer. lol

    Recently, my all wheel drive dash message came on. Here we go again...

    My first post was in May of 2011. I have had my 2011 Acadia now for over three years and continue to be happy with it. It has proven to be a great family hauler and all around use vehicle. I'm getting 19 to 20 mpg with each tank of city and hwy driving. So far I have over 50k miles on it and it has not let us down yet. Just routine oil changes and tire rotations so far. I would say mileage has been fair considering its size and weight. We are a family of five with a fourth child on the way so space will not be an issue with seating for eight. I plan to keep this vehicle for a while and it should be paid off by the end of this year, if not sooner.

    Any one know what they did to the 2016 Acadia to reduce highway Mileage by 2mpg. The sticker still said 24mpg (same as since 2007) but anyone who bought a 2016 before May is going to get a reimbursement.
