2022 Porsche Macan vs. 2022 GMC Acadia

The 2022 Porsche Macan is a fabulous SUV with excellent handling, lots of different options and a formidable engine. How does it compare to the 2022 GMC Acadia, a chiseled sport utility vehicle with a spacious cabin and outstanding infotainment?

Design & Style

The GMC Acadia is a crossover that is moderately sized and buyers get the choice of 3 different engines. It has a square and upright stance, with chrome in all the right places. Within the cabin, it has a dashboard shaped like a shield with various controls that are easy to learn and use. It seats a maximum of seven and the seats are quite comfortable, especially when purchased with leather upholstery. The Porsche Macan is masterfully designed. It has a sporty exterior with distinct side blades and a 3D light bar in back. Like the Acadia, its dashboard is packed with various screens and buttons, but is accessible and simple to learn. The cabin looks best in black, and the seats provide excellent back support even when traveling long distances.

Technology & Safety

The Porsche Macan is equipped with a variety of countermeasures designed to prevent accidents before they occur. This includes automatic emergency brakes, cruise control which is adaptive, multiple airbags and a sturdy reinforced frame. Luxuries within its cabin include Apple CarPlay, seats that can be power adjusted, navigation, leather upholstery, air suspension and power lift gate.

The GMC Acadia has received a good rating from the NHTSA, but wasn’t good enough to earn a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. This is probably because it doesn’t come with emergency automated brakes, but it does have lane control which is active, cruise control and a rear mirror camera.  Comforts within its cabin include eight inch displays, keyless start, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and front seats which can be adjusted manually.


Those that purchase the Porsche Macan will get a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 248 horsepower, which allows is to accelerate from zero to sixty in about 6.3 seconds.  Those that purchase the GMC Acadia will get an inline 4, 2.5 liter engine that can generate 193 horsepower with 188 pounds of torque that is connected to an automatic nine speed transmission.

The Bottom Line

The GMC Acadia doesn’t have all wheel drive, its performance lags behind the Porsche, and some areas of its cabin are tight. Additionally, some who have test driven it have complained about the pushbutton shifter, which is annoying to use, and the materials used in the interior don’t match the high standards of Porsche, making the Macan the winner.
