2017 Gmc Acadia
GMC introduced the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia – a reimagined crossing aimed at the spunk of the midsize section, intentional to go gravid versatility and elaboration, with more advance condom technologies.
The new GMC Acadia offers more-efficient powertrains, patch chronic to offering ternary rows of seats on nigh models. The agio Acadia Denali returns, on with a new All Terrain exemplar offer enhanced off-road capableness.
“GMC is a firm, maturation agiotage steel and the Acadia is a fundament of our succeeder history,” aforesaid Duncan Aldred, v.p. of GMC Sales and Merchandising. “The all-new Acadia leverages GMC’s proved SUV feel to play and agitate one of the largest fomite segments, with a stiff flux of pattern, engineering and capacity.”
The new GMC Acadia goes on sale in saltation 2016, virtually a x astern its pilot entry, and approaching off of its strongest sales yr always in 2015 with 96,393 deliveries.
“Typically, a fomite’s sales can be illustrated on a toll bend during its lifecycle, but the Acadia’s winner has defied conventionality with telling sustainability,” aforesaid Aldred. “It’s a glossy representative of GMC’s impulse and we’re positive it testament develop with the new Acadia.”
New size, bigger advantages
The strategical re-scoping of the 2017 Acadia offers customers a midsize crossing positioned ‘tween the squeeze Terrain and life-sized Yukon. Contingent the exemplar, it is usable with five-, six- or seven-passenger seats, spell oblation greater manoeuvrability than the first-generation simulation.
2017 GMC Acadia
“The new Acadia captures a greater notion of civilisation, in everything from the antiphonal impression backside the bicycle to the way passengers interact with its nonrational features,” aforesaid Haystack Spina, administrator gaffer technologist for compress and crossing SUVs at World-wide Motors. “It’s a fomite that offers the functionality Acadia is known for, patch delivering big advantages and counterweight to customers’ daily lives.”
The new GMC Acadia is 700 pounds flatboat than the stream manakin, which pays dividends at the gas heart. A new, 2.5L locomotive is stock, oblation an estimated 28 mpg on the highway for FWD models (EPA gauge not yet useable; approximate is based on GM examination). Metropolis fire thriftiness offered is GM-estimated at 22 mpg (FWD) and is bolstered by GMC’s beginning coating of Blockage/Startle engineering, which enhances efficiency in stop-and-go drive.
A new, usable 3.6L V-6 locomotive is more muscular and effective than the stream modelling, patch offer 4,000 pounds estimated trailering capacity (with the uncommitted towing packet). It is GM-estimated at 310 hp (231 kW) and 25 mpg highway (FWD models – EPA guess not useable).
Both of the GMC Acadia’s new engines have organise injectant and varying valve timing, and both are paired to six-speed reflexive transmissions and an electronically controlled cause fashion picker.
Legacy of functionality and spaciousness

It offers greater tractableness, including the potentiality of the curbside backside sliding and tilting forward-moving, tied with a forward-facing nipper arse in position, patch the driver-side incision tips and slides onward for easier approach to the 3rd row.
The 50/50-split third-row ass folds matte for a altogether apartment freight coldcock butt the arcsecond row and when the secondment row is too folded, thither’s 79 three-dimensional feet (2,237 liters) of freight way. Levers at the bum of the fomite survive easier to sheepcote the second- and third-row seating.
Extra solutions stove from simpleton to technologically ripe. The backside of the core soothe, e.g., features a unequaled pull-out warehousing draftsman. It is approachable to rear-seat passengers and allows items such as electronic devices and modest toys to be stored doggo, for greater certificate and rock-bottom smother.
Thither’s likewise a new, stock bottom arse watchful that can cue the driver when an token may sustain been unexpended in the second- and third-row seating. Additionally, all ternary rows offering USB burster ports for compatible electronic devices.
The new GMC Acadia offers a greater vehemence on civilization, patch unexpended now recognisable with an phylogeny of the fomite’s touch, pro level figure cues such as a chrome-trimmed wicket, squared off and flared bicycle arches and wraparound ass position windows with shadow D-pillars.
“It’s a surefooted innovation influenced by across-the-board client comment,” aforementioned Helen Emsley, executive, Globular GMC Invention and Exploiter Receive. “The archetype Acadia was selfsame truck-inspired, but the new modelling has a definitely SUV shape conveyed in sculpturesque details, dull corners and a sleeker windscreen tip.”
New dimensional grilles and wraparound headlamps – HID lamps on Denali and halogen projectors on over-the-counter models – reenforce the convinced, graceful appearing, spell banner LED touch inflammation on all models ruminate GMC’s bounty attributes. Complementing C-shape bottom inflammation artwork add a cohesive contingent to the innovation.
Agiotage cues tell the Acadia Denali. Comparable all Denali models, it features a dimensional chromium-plate grillwork, on with structured chromium-plate incline trimming, chrome-accented doorway handles, a chromium-plate lower-rear facia and particular six-spoke wheels.
Within, all GMC Acadia passementerie levels lineament unequalled national gloss and reduce combinations and integrated reliable al reduce.
Latest safety and connectivity technologies
