Looking for an SUV that has space for the whole family, and is prepared for adventure? It can be tough to find the right vehicle when there are so many options available. We hope to lend a hand in the decision-making process by comparing the 2015 GMC Acadia vs 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. The 2015 GMC Acadia is a fantastic choice for a million reasons, and we hope the direct comparison with a competing SUV will allow you to see the highlights and differences that set this impressive and luxurious vehicle apart.
Starting with the exteriors of these two SUVs, there are several differences that may help to make a choice between the two. The larger and more aggressive-looking 2015 GMC Acadia has chrome details and a more carved exterior that gives it a feeling of authority and security. The slightly smaller Nissan Pathfinder features a body that appears more curved and aerodynamic. It’s minivan-like exterior has a family friendly appeal, but loses the sporty aggressiveness that is present in the GMC Acadia. Under the hood, there are differences that set the GMC Acadia ahead of the Nissan Pathfinder. A very slightly bigger engine under the hood of the 2015 GMC Acadia puts out more horsepower for a swifter and more powerful driving experience. Bringing a trailer or a boat along for the ride is easy with the Acadia that is prepared to handle the extra weight. The Nissan, on the other hand, has slightly better fuel economy ratings, but at the sacrifice of power. When looking at the exterior of these two vehicles, the choice comes down to the sporty, authoritative and powerful GMC Acadia, or the friendly, classic, and slightly more efficient Nissan Pathfinder.
The interior, however, is hardly a competition. The 2015 GMC Acadia comes fully loaded with benefits and convenience features that simply aren’t met by the less exciting interior of the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder. Despite both vehicles coming with a 6-speaker audio system and first-row LCD screen, the Acadia comes standard with Bluetooth capability and two rear LCD screens that include a DVD entertainment system. Prepared to handle mobile electronics through USB and auxiliary inputs, entertainment and listen to music while driving is easy in both the Nissan Pathfinder and the GMC Acadia. However, the rear passengers are bound to be much more entertained with a DVD system. Packing the family in a vehicle for a long trip can be made much easier with space for cargo. The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder comes with up to 79.8 cubic feet of cargo room, while the 2015 GMC Acadia races ahead with an impressive maximum cargo capacity of 116.1 cubic feet. There are so many differences between the Acadia and the Pathfinder, but it is easy to choose when the GMC Acadia comes out in front in almost every category.
