There are many reasons that families love crossovers, but the biggest reason may very well be utility.

Comfortable, strong and efficient, the good-looking 2016 GMC Acadia, on sale here at Colonial Buick GMC in Watertown, Massachusetts, delivers no-compromises capability thatís affordable.
Maximum utility in 2016 GMC Acadia starts with its flexible interior. Seven- and eight-passenger seating arrangements are available; you can select a three-passenger bench seat for the second row or a pair of captainís chairs, depending on your needs. Accessing the third row is easy thanks to standard Smart Slide second-row seats that quickly and easily fold and slide forward at the pull of a lever. When cargo takes priority over passenger space, the both rear rows of seats fold flat to create a cavernous 116.1 cubic feet of space. With all seats in use, the Acadia can still hold 24.1 cubic feet of cargo behind the third row.
