Adverts aren’t usually featured on my blog but when someone wants to trust me with an expensive car for a full weekend I’ll make an exception. Driving out of the showroom with the new 2017 GMC Acadia this felt like a definite blogger perk.
Thankfully this company came with no stipulation for advertising, just a simple case of “here are the keys, go have some fun” and that is exactly what I did.
What do you do when you have a free car for the weekend? You go on a road trip, of course!
The car was packed up with friends, food and Spencer joined us for the fun as we headed off down the coast in search of our next adventure.
This model is marketed as “All Terrain” which sounds like a good challenge to me. With 4 wheel drive engaged and we really did put the car to the test. Up and down steep rock hills, across the sandy beach and through narrow wadi passages it went with ease.
This car was a lot of fun to drive. With the exterior looks of a family car is deceiving and it certainly handled every situation we put it through.
It was all too much excitement for Spencer as he fell asleep on the way home.
With handy features, great handling on and off road, plenty of speed and lots of room for the family, The Acadia would definitely be a car I would consider purchasing in the future when it’s time to say goodbye to my cursed Audi, but the story of the Audi is one for another day.
Thanks GMC for the excuse for a much needed road trip.
