Buying cheap insurance for a GMC Acadia in Ohio depends on many factors such as how safe your vehicle is, your address, and if you have a history of accidents. Ohio drivers pay on average $555 each year for Acadia insurance, but that is an estimation using a 40-year-old married male driver with full coverage and $500 deductibles.
It's highly likely you aren't exactly 40 years old or even a male, possibly single instead of married, and maybe you have sub-par credit that needs to be factored in. Even a minor change in the rating criteria used to formulate rates could end up with a large change in how much coverage for a GMC Acadia costs.
Insurance is an individual thing, so the best method for finding cheap car insurance rates for your GMC is to just take the time to compare rates yourself. In just a few minutes you will receive prices from top-rated car insurance companies available.
The trim level of your Acadia will likely have an effect on price, so the cost to insure a Acadia SL 2WD model will be $72 less than the cost to insure the more costly Acadia SLT AWD model, as shown in the chart below.

The example below demonstrates how deductible levels can impact insurance rates when trying to find cheap insurance for a GMC Acadia. The information is based on a married female driver, full coverage, and no additional discounts are factored in.
As shown above, a 40-year-old driver could lower rates by $184 a year by switching from a $100 deductible to a $500 deductible, or save $280 by choosing a $1,000 deductible. Younger drivers, like the 20-year-old, could potentially save as much as $458 or more just by using higher deductibles.
When increasing deductibles, it's a good idea to have enough funds in savings to satisfy the extra out-of-pocket expense, which is the main drawback of higher deductibles.
Full coverage versus liability only rates
Saving money on car insurance should be important to the majority of people, and one common way to find cheap insurance for a GMC Acadia is to buy liability only. The diagram below illustrates the comparison of premium costs when comparing full coverage to liability only. The rates are based on no claims, a clean driving record, $100 deductibles, single marital status, and no policy discounts are applied.
Averaged for all ages 20 through 70, comprehensive and collision coverage on your policy costs an extra $1,583 per year more than just buying liability only. At some point, every insured wonders if paying for full coverage is worth it. There is no written rule to drop physical damage coverage, but there is a general school of thought. If the annual cost of comprehensive and collision coverage is more than 10% of the settlement you would receive from your company, then you may need to consider dropping full coverage.
For example, let's assume your vehicle's replacement value is $6,000 and you have $1,000 full coverage deductibles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, the most you would get paid by your company is $5,000 after paying your policy deductible. If you are paying over $500 a year for physical damage coverage, then it might be time to consider dropping full coverage.
There are some cases where eliminating full coverage is not recommended. If you haven't satisfied your loan, you have to carry full coverage as part of the loan requirements. Also, if your savings is not enough to buy a different vehicle in case of an accident, you should maintain full coverage.
