How to Find Cheaper GMC Acadia Insurance

Finding better rates on GMC Acadia insurance not only requires being a good driver, but also having good credit, paying for small claims out-of-pocket, and deciding if full coverage is necessary. Make time to compare rates at least once a year by quoting rates from direct insurance companies like Progressive, GEICO, and Esurance, and also from local independent and exclusive agents.

The following list is a condensed summary of the primary concepts that were touched on in this article.

  • It is possible to save as much as $150 per year just by quoting early and online
  • High-risk drivers with multiple at-fault accidents pay an average of $1,470 more each year than a safer driver
  • Increasing policy deductibles can save around $475 each year

By getting insurance quotes for multiple insurance companies and increasing your deductible, you could save as much as $650 a year. So if you can’t decide between Progressive insurance or Allstate insurance, the best thing to do is get quotes.

GMC Acadia Size and Class and Liability Insurance

What does liability insurance cover? Liability insurance pays for other drivers’ medical bills and property damage after an accident you caused, so vehicles that are high risk will cost more to insure. What vehicles count as high risk when it comes to liability insurance?

Any vehicle that is heavy, large, or crashes easily, as these vehicles are a risk to other vehicles. While the plus side is that you are safer in a larger or heavier vehicle, the downside is that other drivers are more likely to be hurt if you crash.

So what is the GMC Acadia’s size and class? The GMC Acadia is a midsize SUV, which means it is a sturdy car. You might also ask, does the GMC Acadia have 3rd-row seating? Cars with 3rd-row seating are larger. While the GMC Acadia has 3rd-row seating, it is still considered medium size for an SUV.

One of the best ways to tell if the GMC Acadia is a high-risk vehicle, though, is to look at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) data on insurance losses by make and model.

The first set of losses below is for the GMC’s bodily injury losses.

  • GMC Acadia 4dr: -9 percent (average)
  • GMC Acadia 4dr 4WD: -27 percent (better than average)

Both of the losses are in the negative, which is great. The losses for property damage are also good, as you can see below.

  • GMC Acadia 4dr: -5 percent (average)
  • GMC Acadia 4dr 4WD: -9 percent (average)

While the losses are negative for the GMC Acadia, they are still considered average for midsize SUVs. So you will likely have a normal rate that is comparable to other midsize SUVs.

GMC Acadia Cost of Liability Insurance

We pulled sample rates from Geico for a 40-year-old male driver who travels 13,000 miles a year, has a clean driving record, and owns his 2020 GMC Acadia SL. Take a look at the prices for bodily injury coverage below (based on a six-month policy period).

  • Low ($15,000/$30,000): $41.15
  • Medium ($100,000/$200,000): $84.35
  • High ($500,000/$500,000): $135.79

It costs just under $100 to upgrade your bodily coverage from low to high, which is on the pricier side. Luckily, the price increases for property damage are lower, so it helps balance out the higher cost of bodily injury coverage.

  • Low ($5,000): $437.46
  • Medium ($20,000): $466.84
  • High ($100,000): $488.31

It costs $51 to upgrade your low coverage to high, which is less than $10 a month. Overall, the liability rates aren’t bad for a GMC Acadia, so you shouldn’t have any unpleasant surprises when you shop for insurance.

In fact, the IIHS’s fatality data showed that for driver fatalities per million vehicles there were 23 SUV fatalities, 34 pickup fatalities, and 48 car fatalities. All occupants per million vehicles showed similar numbers, as there were 32 SUV fatalities, 42 pickup fatalities, and 69 car fatalities.

In total, there were 5,035 SUV fatalities, which was fewer than car fatalities (13,138), although slightly more than pickup fatalities (4,369). The SUV fatalities are broken up by crash type below.

  • Frontal Impact: 2,784 fatalities

GMC Acadia Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price

Insurers usually always refer to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) when they calculate collision and comprehensive losses. Why? The MSRP is a good indicator of how much it will cost to repair or replace a vehicle. Because collision and comprehensive coverage pay for your vehicle repairs after an accident, these are the two coverages most affected.

Kelley Blue Book (KBB) listed the following MSRP and market prices for the 2020 GMC Acadia SL.

  • MSRP: $30,995
  • Invoice Price: $30,965
  • Fair Purchase Price: $29,200
  • Fair Market Range: $28,072 – $30,327

The MSRP is on the higher end, so you will likely have slightly higher rates. This is normal anytime you buy a more expensive vehicle. However, one thing that can help offset your higher rates is the losses for both collision and comprehensive insurance.

Take a look at the IIHS’s data on collision losses below.

  • GMC Acadia 4dr: -4 percent (average)
  • GMC Acadia 4dr 4WD: -4 percent (average)

Even though these losses are considered average for midsize SUVs, they are in the negative, which is good. The comprehensive losses are also good.

  • GMC Acadia 4dr: -27 percent (better than average)
  • GMC Acadia 4dr 4WD: -14 percent (average)

Because the GMC Acadia has decent losses, you should have decent rates. Use our free quote tool below to find which car insurance company is the cheapest.
