Performance Comparison

The 2021 GMC Acadia uses more sizable engines than the 2021 Explorer, which is necessary for a vehicle of its stature. Your standard 2021 Acadia is moved by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine providing 193 horsepower. For more oomph, you can upgrade to a 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6.

The Acadia’s larger engine lets it tow up to 4,000 pounds, while the small one tows a still-impressive 1,000 pounds.
