A new generation of premium mid-size SUV, the 2024 GMC Acadia is expected to provide even more space, power, technology, and safety than its predecessor. The Acadia is ideal for a weekend break to Greensboro or a family journey from Stanleytown to Rocky Mount because to its larger proportions, which provide more space for passengers and cargo. Its opulent interior, state-of-the-art technology, and elegant, tough, and beautiful design set a new benchmark for this segment of the SUV market.
Even though the 2024 GMC Acadia is a completely new third-generation of the midsize GMC crossover SUV, the trim levels feel reassuringly familiar. The new family consists of four versions, the base Elevation being the first. As the Elevation drives down the road in Radville, it appears incredibly expensive, but it is reasonably priced and offers a lot of SUV for the money. The Premium trim, which is the next rung on the Acadia ladder, is sure to be a popular choice due to its appealing feature set and affordable price. The Acadia then adopts a tougher, off-road path with the AT4 specification thanks to its underbody skid plates, additional inch of ground clearance, and unapologetically rugged exterior appearance. But the Denali remains the best option available if you’re searching for the most luxurious and well-equipped model.
Not everything about the brand-new 2024 GMC Acadia is larger than the models that came before it, despite the fact that it is higher, longer, and broader than its recent ancestors. The big news is the V-6 engine has been replaced with a smaller, lighter, more efficient, and far more modern turbocharged inline-four, and shouldn’t come as too much of a shock as that’s they way of the auto world these days. This 2.5-liter turbo-four engine produces a very capable 328 horsepower and 326 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s the powerplant that features under the hood of all four trim levels and comes with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission in every case. But the AT4 goes a step further thanks to its unique Active Torque Control AWD system, which takes the off-road prowess of the new Acadia up a significant notch. This also enables the AT4 to haul a 5,000-pound trailer when outfitted appropriately.
The 2024 Acadia boasts a dramatic and fashionable new exterior in addition to a completely redesigned interior, with premium materials and cutting-edge technologies. The focal point of which is a 15-inch luxury GMC infotainment system display that is portrait-oriented and a standard feature on all grades. A new standard 11-inch diagonal driver information centre that works with the Acadia’s new portrait infotainment system, customizable tablet displays, Google Play connectivity with apps like navigation, and an available high-contrast display are some of the main aspects of the system.
The 2024 Acadia also features a host of cutting-edge tech, including impressively enhanced vision for the driver, thanks to up to nine camera angles available on the primary control panel. The Acadia also expands the availability of Super Cruise – the auto industry’s first genuine hands-free advanced driver assistance system available on more than 400,000 miles of roads in the U.S. and Canada.
The new interior needs to be spacious to fit everything in, and it certainly is. The 2024 Acadia is available with seating for up to eight people in three rows. And compared to its predecessor, the 2024 Acadia boasts 80 percent more cargo space behind the third row and more than 36 percent more behind the second-row seats.
The 2024 GMC Acadia takes a very successful blueprint. It makes nearly every improvement anyone could ask for, but without deviating from what made the Acadia so successful in the first place. The standard and available technology and amenities fulfil every need, and then some, and the exterior and interior style and luxury are better than ever.
