If you are looking for a full-size car, the GMC Acadia is a great option. This full-size 4-door crossover SUV was launched by General Motors in 2006, and has been a customer favorite since then.
If you are considering a used Acadia, you should know that it is available for a median price of $15,999 in Alaska. In North Dakota, on the other hand, it would be available for a median price of $ 40,990. But since you can get it shipped from Alaska, you don’t necessarily have to pay more than $40,000 for a car that can be bought for much less than that. You have the option of buying it from another state, and having it shipped to your home. Even if you add shipping costs and auto transport insurance to the median price of the vehicle, you could still save a considerable amount on the cost of the vehicle.
Insurance, on the other hand, must be purchased in your own area. Let us look at the cost of insuring the GMC in some of the states.
The cost of insuring the Acadia is the lowest in Maine. You would have to pay an average annual insurance rate of merely $831 here. With a median price of $25,980, Maine is a great state to buy and insure an Acadia.
North Carolina, Iowa, and New Hampshire, too have low insurance rates for this full-size car. The average annual insurance rates in these states are $907, $916, and $986, respectively. The median price of the Acadia is, however, higher in these states. The median price is as high as $34,624 in New Hampshire.
In the states of Michigan and Louisiana, on the other hand, one has to pay an annual average rate of $2,249 and $2,279, respectively to insure an Acadia. These are the highest insurance rates for the Acadia in the country.
In the rest of the states, the annual average insurance rates range from $1,012 to $1,838. If you are in the high insurance rates state, talk to your insurance carrier about lowering your premiums without losing your cover. Investing in an anti-theft device for your car could be your first step in this direction.
