The All-New GMC Acadia SUV Breaks Cover

It’s longer, wider, taller, comfier and more feature-rich than its predecessor.

What you see here is the all-new GMC Acadia – a mid-size SUV that, according to the automaker, marks the beginning of a “new era for the brand’s family of SUVs and crossovers”. Naturally, GMC claims the latest iteration is better than ever. However, most of that claim is quantifiable because it’s larger and more feature-rich than its predecessor.

The 2024 GMC Acadia is 10.6 inches longer and 3.2 inches taller than the version it replaces. That means there’s more room indoors for living and non-living things. GMC says the new Acadia offers a nearly 80 per cent increase in luggage space with all three rows of seats in place. Fold the last row away, and the increment in volume is 36 per cent.

Regardless of the variant one settles for, under the bonnet will be the new 2.5-litre turbocharged engine that, you guessed it, outperforms the older one. It offers 328hp/442Nm, all handled by an 8-speed automatic transmission. The new-gen Acadia also has more trailering capability (up to 2,268kg) and all-wheel-drive. The most capable version to take on the rough stuff, the Acadia AT4, features an Active Torque Control AWD system.

Over to the features list. Besides the Denali derivative, the AT4 and Elevation Premium variants of the new GMC Acadia will also boast the latest version of Super Cruise technology. It will also include trailering assist and auto lane-change support. Indoors, a 15-inch touchscreen infotainment system is the first attention grabber, featuring customisable displays and Google built-in. The SUV also packs an 11-inch digital instrument cluster, up to 9 cameras for various views and a plethora of safety features and driver assistance systems.

Returning to the Acadia AT4, it boasts an inch taller ride height, a wider track, and 18-inch all-terrain tyres. In addition, there’s off-road-tuned suspension, multiple drive modes including Terrain mode and Hill Descent Control and bespoke styling cues inside and out.

Lastly, the Acadia Denali. It ups comfort levels with additional features, such as one-touch folding second-row, power-folding third-row, 22-inch aluminium wheels (largest ever in the model’s history), panoramic sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats and a 16-speaker Bose sound system with active noise cancelling technology.

GMC will manufacture the all-new Acadia at GM’s Lansing Delta Township Assembly facility in Michigan. Sales are likely to commence in the USA early next year.
