Did you hear about the big news from the General Motors? After more than a decade of production and re-engineering, finally a completely redesigned 2017 GMC Acadia is set to launch in the market. Originally released in 2006, the 2017 GMC Acadia is a full-size crossover that shares many characteristics with its Chevy twin, known simply as the Traverse. The 2017 GMC Acadia is expected to come with many changes: new platform, new interior and exterior design, new engines, new styling and many other changes and awesome features.
2017 GMC Acadia Exterior and Interior
The exterior of the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia is going to make a lasting impression upon many car lovers. Its bold new style, from front to back, and its details, from big to small, makes it a truly unique crossover vehicle. Notable features include bold new wraparound headlamps, distinctive grill designs, and wraparound rear glass. Its attractive headlamps, fog lamps, and tail lamps allow you to see as well as be seen.
The interior of the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia SUV highlights the company’s professional attitude and dedication to precision. Acadia’s accommodating and flexible space and functionality harmoniously blends with style, technology, and safety. For example, the French-stitched seats highlights comfort with soft touch, refined materials and real aluminum trim that runs through the cabin. The innovative storage of the Acadia SUV increases its capability. Up to seven passengers can ride comfortably in the 2017 GMC Acadia, thanks to its premium seating and 3rd row. The new 2017 GMC is expected to come with many awesome features. Unlike its original model, the 2017 GMC Acadia comes with platform that offers many improvements. For example, the new body will be mostly made up of lightweight materials such as aluminum or HSS, which will significantly reduces it overall weight by 700 pounds. This drop of weight will also make a huge impact on the overall performance of the SUV, especially in terms of fuel consumption. The 2017 GMC Acadia also comes with a completely redesigned styling. Although the body is the same, the new model has new and sharper body features and lines, making it look more attractive to the eyes. The interior comes with significant changes too. For example, the 2017 GMC Acadia comes with new cabin. Just like the traditional SUV, the second generation of this crossover will features three rows of seats. The third and second row will fold flat so that you can place a huge cargo if you need. The new cabin is not only stylish, but also comes with a redesigned dashboard, with new high-end systems.
2017 GMC Acadia Engines
The 2017 Acadia is equipped with two new engines – the standard 4-cylinder engine with advanced start/stop technology and the new 3.6L V6 engine. Both of these engines come with a powerful 6-speed transmission. The front wheel drive 4-cylinder engine is estimated to deliver 28 miles per gallon on highway. On the other hand, if you upgrade to their new 3.6L V6 engine, you will get an estimated 310 horsepower for extra heavy-duty tasks.
