2020 Ford Explorer vs GMC Acadia

The 2020 Ford Explorer Offers Performance, Comfort, and Capability that Popular Models from GMC Can't Compete With

SUV models should offer plenty of comfort for passengers, and the capability to handle any of your adventures. Three-row SUVs are stellar options for people that need more room, and the 2020 Ford Explorer has the capacity for most of life's journeys. When compared to options like the GMC Acadia, you will find that the Ford Explorer stands just a step above in many different ways with a complete redesign. See how the two compare head-to-head!

2020 Ford Explorer vs 2020 GMC Acadia

Both models offer three engine options to choose from with turbocharged and V6 choices available. However, if you want the most power from your SUV, the Ford Explorer delivers it with every option. The base engine option from the Ford lineup, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost®, far outstrips the 2.5-liter that comes standard with the 2020 GMC Acadia.

Looking to spend less time at the gas pump? The 2020 Ford Explorer offers a 3.3-liter Hybrid engine option that blends electric capability with gas-power. The Acadia does not provide this option at all.

Both SUV options come equipped to seat seven passengers comfortably with equal ease. However, if you want to ensure that your passengers enjoy a maximum level of comfort, the Ford Explorer provides more interior passenger space than the GMC Acadia.

Planning on spending time outside exploring and adventuring? You'll find plenty of cargo room available in the Ford Explorer, more than the maximum that is available with the GMC SUV.

Both SUV models are packed with luxuries that make your daily commute enjoyable and easy to manage. From intuitive touchscreens, smartphone integration, and a comfortable seating setup, you'll find something to make the most of it. The Ford model takes things a bit further with a 10.1-inch touchscreen and a 12-speaker premium sound system. The GMC doesn't offer features like this.

The Ford Co-Pilot360™ is standard with every Explorer model and provides plenty of driver-assistance features to help with busy traffic situations. The GMC Acadia requires an upgrade to more expensive models to unlock any of their safety features.
