Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota 4Runner and the GMC Acadia.

Convenience
With the GMC Acadia, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota 4Runner, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

The Toyota 4Runner is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Acadia.
