2017 GMC Acadia Revealed!Acadia Jan 12nd, 2016
General Motors unveiled the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia today at the North-American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI, revealing a brand new model that’s now 700 lbs lighter than the vehicle it replaces.
WHAT’S THE BIG NEWS?
Like the Camaro, Cruze, Malibu and Volt that also debuted this year, the new Acadia now sits on a whole chassis and is truly a brand new vehicle both inside and out.
Unlike the other vehicles, the new Acadia is actually more compact than the vehicle it replaces in order to fit between the larger Yukon and smaller Terrain model.
|Wheelbase (in / mm)||Length

|2017 Acadia||112.5 / 2857||193.6 / 4917||75.4 / 1916||68.7 / 1745 (w/o mast, w/ roof rack)||38.7 / 11.8||3956 / 1794 (est. – FWD)|
|2016 Acadia||118.9 / 3021||200.8 / 5101||78.9 / 2003||72.6 / 1844 (w/o mast, w/ roof rack)||40.4 / 12.3||4656 / 2112 (FWD)|
The 2017 Acadia can fit five, six or seven passengers depending on the configuration, while a new split-folding rear seat with Smart Slide helps improve functionality and makes transporting a breeze.
A new 2.5L I4 EcotTec engine with 194 hp is now on offer, in addition to a new version of the 3.6L V6 with 310 hp found in the previous model. Like the previous model the new Acadia can be had with either Front-Wheel Drive or All-Wheel Drive configurations.
A WHOLE NEW LOOK
To go along with its new, smaller size the 2017 Acadia wears brand new sheetmetal that pays homage to classic GMC design cues with its squared-off wheel arches, chrome-trimmed grill, wraparound rear side pillars, and more. Plus, the 2017 model arrives with signature LED lighting on all models! And that’s a pretty bright idea if you ask us. : )
Inside, high-quality materials and stitched leather provide endless comfort while standard features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto
& 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi mean you’re always connect no matter where you are.
Look for the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia on lot later this spring!
