Part of American DNA is the SUV. Alongside the likes of the hamburger, the pick-up trucks, and baseball, it's one of the few things that define us as a nation. One of the fewer things still that's commonly appreciated from the west coast to the east, from North Dakota to Texas.
Republicans and Democrats might argue by day, but both will likely drive an SUV home after. GMC, one of US's best car manufacturers, has one of the best SUV line-ups on the market today. Highly versatile and with that trademark solid-built quality from top to bottom, you'll never regret buying one.
It will take 5 minutes to introduce the Terrain, the Arcadia and the mighty Yukon, and take it from us, it's time well spent.

The Terrain is GM's smallest crossover SUV, although you won't feel at all cramped while on the inside., as it can sit up to 4 adults in complete comfort, even on long commutes.The model is also by far the most modern-looking out of the three, sporting a floating roof and a handsome, sleek exterior shape. It feels brand new, and it has a refined look and feel throughout all trim levels.
Looks is not all that recommend the Terrain. Exceptional fuel economy and a ton of standard tech make it an excellent choice for prospective buyers. Every model comes equipped with 6 USB ports, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity and a keyless ignition feature.
All that for the base trim level, the SL. One step up though, for a small price hike, you'll get an 8.0-inch touchscreen, a state-of-the-art BOSE sound system, LED headlights, parking sensors, and blind-spot monitors. The Terrain not only looks like a 2019 model but also has all tech inside to match its modern look.
Three engine choices, two petrol, and one diesel are available. The base powertrain is a 1.5-liter turbo-4 that will produce 170 horsepower and an impressive 203 pound-feet of torque. Upgrade that to a 2.0-liter turbo-4 that will put out 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both petrol engines, as you can see have a ton of torque for the car's size, which makes them especially suitable for in-city driving. The diesel is a 1.6-liter turbo with 137 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque of output.

Acadia follows, as one of the smallest three-rowed SUVs on the market. Designed to match the needs of people who only on occasion require the use of a third row, the Acadia is a niche-SUV.
As of last year, the model got curvier and less threatening-looking, which made it far more appealing to a wider target than before. The current model, although milder in appearance, still has a hint of unapologetic masculinity that's sure to keep the regular customers still interested.
Cargo space with all three rows up is not great, at 12.8 cubic feet, but it can grow up to a whopping 79 cubic feet if you fold the last two rows down.
There are two engines to choose from, a 2.5-liter inline-4 that will give out 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque, as the base model, and a 3.6-liter V-6 at an impressive 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Both powertrains are paired with a flawless 6-speed automatic.
The SL basic trim level is anything but basic, as it comes with tons of safety features like 7 airbags, anti-lock brakes, a rearview camera and a nifty rear-seat detection system that will, you know, alert you if you forgot your child or pet in the back seat. GM helps, GM does not judge...
Tech standard features are also plenty. A 7.0-inch touchscreen equipped with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay plus three-zone automatic climate control are found on every Acadia. Things get really interesting when you upgrade to the SLE trim level though. The price difference is negligible, and you'll get options like an eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, and remote start fitted onto your car.
And now for the big guns, the Yukon. By far the largest in GM's SUV lineup, it can not only comfortably drive 7 people around town, but it can tow up to 8500 pounds while doing it. A serious car, for serious needs.

The Yukon has an old-school cool look and a very modern feel. The exterior design screams power and the interior, comfort. As of 2019, GM introduced a budget-friendly Standard Edition Value Package, which will put the car on more prospective buyers' lists.
You can fit one in two engine choices, both impressive, on your brand-new Yukon. It's either the base 5.3-liter V-8, that produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, or the 6.2-liter V-8, which cranks out 420 hp and 460 pound-feet through a 10-speed automatic. You can't go wrong with either, since more a choice between powerful and SUPER-powerful here.
The Yukon comes with a respectable standard features list which includes cloth upholstery, either a bench up front or two bucket seats, 18-inch wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen equipped with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a state-of-the-art Bose sound system, and automatic three-zone climate control.
We can say from experience that each of the three models, in all trim levels, are a delight to drive.
