2016 GMC Acadia Pictured
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.
2016 Canyon Pictured
When you want a premium truck, you get a GMC, and when you want a premium mid-size truck, you get the 2017 Canyon Denali. GMC just introduced this truck, which is the first-ever premium truck in the mid-size segment.
“Canyon is the segment’s first and only premium midsize truck, offering unparalleled capability and efficiency matched with maneuverability and refinement,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, in a statement. “The all-new Canyon Denali builds on that award-winning combination with the distinctive styling, luxurious interior and elevated content that has defined the Denali nameplate since its introduction nearly 17 years ago.”
Just like its larger Denali counterparts, the Canyon Denali will feature a unique chrome grille and distinctive wheels. It will also come with chrome fog lamp bezels, five-inch-diameter rectangular chrome assist steps, a polished exhaust tip, and a standard spray-in bed liner.
The Canyon Denali will only be available as a crew cab model, but will come with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. You can also choose between the standard 3.6-liter V6 or the all-new 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel.
The 2017 GMC Canyon Denali will go on sale here at Paul Sur Buick GMC late next year.

General Motors recently revealed a few teaser images of the upcoming 2017 Buick LaCrosse, via Twitter. The images don’t reveal much, as most of the model is silhouetted, but we can still gain some insight from the images.
The 2017 Buick LaCrosse teaser images reveal the general outline of the car’s profile, as well as a solid glimpse at the fender. More than ever, it appears as if the new LaCrosse will be based on the Avenir concept model.
You can get a good look at the teaser images here. What do you think? How are you hoping the final 2017 LaCrosse will look? It’s worth noting that a few spy images of the new LaCrosse in testing have been caught as well, though those photos aren’t official.
