LaFontaine Buick GMC of Dearborn Weighs the 2023 GMC Acadia versus the 2023 Honda Pilot

2023 GMC Acadia

The 2023 GMC Acadia is an outstanding choice in the three-row crossover SUV class. Terrific capability, a very impressive range-topping trim, and a robust powertrain are a few of this model’s many assets, positioning it ahead of competitors such as the 2023 Honda Pilot.


Capability is the first area where the 2023 GMC Acadia trumps the 2023 Honda Pilot. Every GMC Acadia trim comes standard with Traction Select, which offers five drive modes that allow you to customize this SUV’s performance to road and weather conditions.

Moreover, the 2023 GMC Acadia AT4 is specially designed for rugged terrain, and the perfect trim for off-road enthusiasts seeking GMC finance. Its amenities include active torque control AWD, hill-descent control, and hill-start assist.

The 2023 Honda Pilot TrailSport offers the closes comparison, but it’s a new trim for this year and doesn’t share the GMC Acadia AT4 trim’s proven capabilities.

Range-Topping Trim

GMC Acadia

The range-topping 2023 GMC Acadia Denali is acclaimed in the three-row SUV segment for its unmatched combination of performance and luxury.

This trim’s standard-setting amenities include 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, exclusive Denali badging, and a dual SkyScape two-panel power sunroof. Plus, the 2023 GMC Acadia Denali can be outfitted with you advanced tech such as high-definition surround vision and a premium Bose sound system.

Contrarily, the corresponding 2023 Honda Pilot Elite is comfortable and offers some nice features. However, we think you’ll find that it doesn’t measure up to our new GMC SUV in terms of styling, sophistication, or performance.


The 2023 GMC Acadia offers two available engines for you to experience with our GMC dealers. On the flipside, the 2023 Honda Pilot offers just one engine – a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 285 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It’s considerably less powerful than the 3.6-liter V6 offered on the 2023 GMC Acadia, which is rated at 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.

In terms of gas mileage, the 2023 GMC Acadia model’s second engine, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, boasts an estimated 25 mpg combined. This tops the 22 mpg combined offered by the 2023 Honda Pilot.
