2020 GMC Acadia: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison
The GMC Acadia was the brand's first entry-level crossover and the first FWD passenger vehicle from GMC. While it's been a solid and reputable vehicle, GMC needed to update the Acadia to take on the brand new rivals that have been popping up like ants at a barbecue. Will the updates be enough to contend in the hotly contested SUV market? While not all of the information is available on the 2020 GMC Acadia, it seems it will indeed be a strong contender.
The '20 Acadia is built on the same platform and is a mechanical twin to the new Chevy Blazer. That indicates that they both share the 2.5L 4-cylinder and the 3.6L V6 power plants mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. While some of the official numbers are not yet published, it is expected that both engines will be very similar in power and gas mileage. What's fascinating is that the Acadia will include an available 3rd engine that's currently not optional on the Blazer. A new 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder will be standard equipment on the Acadia SLT and Denali. This new turbo 4cyl is expected to create 237 horsepower, blending both power and fuel efficiency.
While the Blazer and Acadia might be mechanical twins, that is where the resemblances end. Whereas the Blazer is designed to be sporty, the new GMC Acadia is purpose-built to supply a premium driving experience. The updated, bolder exterior styling includes brand-new LED headlights and taillights with distinct C-shaped lighting while available 20-inch wheels and available warmed, power-adjustable, power-folding mirrors complete the spectacular exterior upgrade. There is even an all-new, off-road performance variation, the first ever Acadia AT4. Inside you will discover 3 rows of seats with the choice of 6 or 7 passengers, genuine wood accents, and Smart Slide functionality in the 2nd row seats. Welcoming and fashionable, the attention to detail is evident in the brand-new GMC Acadia.
The brand-new GMC Acadia features an 8-inch touchscreen, an available 6-inch color HUD, offered Rear Camera Mirror and Active Noise Cancellation. If safety innovation is what you need, there are 2 tiers of the Driver Alert Package. The Driver Alert Package features Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Park Assist. Choose the Driver Alert Package II and you'll obtain Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning as part of the bundle. The all-new GMC Acadia was developed to keep you safe and secure in an accident, but also to help you stay clear of one in the first place.
