2017 GMC Acadia

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe looks even better to Billings and Lockwood drivers after being compared to the 2017 GMC Acadia. With V6 power as standard, more space for all your stuff, and superior comfort and convenience features, the Santa Fe outfoxes rivals like the Acadia without breaking a sweat. Let’s take a closer look now at how these two SUVs compare side by side.


Hyundai have made no bones about providing the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with top-of-the-line power as standard. A 3.3L V6 engine is fitted across all trim levels to put you in control of up to 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft. Properly equipped, you can count on towing up to 5,000 lbs.

In contrast, the 2017 GMC Acadia won’t provide V6 power as standard with SLE-1 and SLE-2 trim levels. All you’ll receive is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that’s rated at 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque – that’s the kind of output you might expect from a sedan, not an SUV. Even with the available V6, you’ll only be able to tow up to 4,000 lbs.


SUVs should come with plenty of room for all passengers to spread out and relax. They also need plenty of cargo space to accommodate growing families and an active lifestyle.

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe roundly outpaces the 2017 GMC Acadia when it comes to cargo space; you’ll find up to 13.5 cubic feet as standard behind the third row or 80 with all the seats folded vs. just 12.8 and 79 with the Acadia. That doesn’t mean passenger comfort suffers; there’s up to 40.4 inches of legroom in the second row of the Santa Fe vs. 39.7 inches in the Acadia.


Hyundai has developed a strong reputation across Billings and Lockwood for offering state-of-the-art features that drivers just won’t get with other vehicles. That holds true with the 2017 Santa Fe, which offers the following features that the 2017 GMC Acadia doesn’t:

  • Quantum Logic Sound System: This 12-speaker sound system uses Clari-Fi technology to restore the quality of digitally compressed music files.
  • Class-Exclusive Multi-View Camera System: Four cameras can provide a 360-degree feed around your Santa Fe. You can also select from front, rear and side camera views.
