The all-new 2017 GMC Acadia will hit the road with a lower starting price this year. It will start at barely under $30,000, $29,995 to be exact when it goes on sale this spring. That’s about $2,000 less than it’s starting price in 2016.
The three-row Acadia comes with more standard equipment as well, including a new IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. It also offers an expanded range of active safety features, including Front Pedestrian Braking, Safety Alert Seat and the Surround Vision camera system. Each of the three rows in the cabin offer those all-important USB charging ports.
There’s also a new, standard rear seat alert on all models that can remind drivers about items left in the second- and third-row seats. It doesn’t actually detect items or people left in the back seat, however, it knows if you’ve opened a back door and will remind you to check the back seat when you reach your destination.
The premium Acadia Denali also returns, pictured above, along with a new all-terrain model with enhanced off-road capability. The All Terrain model features an advanced AWD system with Active Twin Clutch. An SLE-based All Terrain model will roll out in the spring.
A new, 2.5L engine is standard and offers a GM-estimated 28 highway/22 city mpg for FWD models. There’s also an available 3.6L V-6 engine available with a Tow Vision Trailering system that can tow 4,000 pounds. It’s expected to offer 25 highway mpgs. Official EPA estimates aren’t available yet.
