The GMC Acadia has remained mostly the same since its initial release in 2007, with only minor updates year to year. Now, for the 2017 model year, GMC has finally introduced the second-generation of Acadia, and it has some major upgrades.
After debuting it at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, the company recently announced the 2017 GMC Acadia pricing and information for its spring release. With an MSRP of $29,995, the base model of the new Acadia is almost $2,000 less than the base model of the 2016 model, which can be attributed to the more efficient, lightweight design, despite the base trim’s added standard features.
Thanks to a lighter base engine, a more compact design, and lighter materials, the GMC Acadia is more than 700 pounds lighter than the previous generation, making it more fuel-efficient and easier to maneuver.
Some new features include an IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as more active safety features like front pedestrian braking, a surround vision camera system, and safety alert seat.
With five trim levels, two drivetrain options, and improved towing capability, the GMC Acadia is better than ever.
