In depth review of the 2017 GMC Acadia!


The All NEW GMC Acadia is here and it surpasses expectations by a landslide. Not only does it combine design with functionality while not sacrificing an ounce of comfort, it is more advanced than it has ever been in so many ways. Unlike previous models the new 2017 GMC Acadia has available All Wheel Drive Disconnect meaning the choice is yours anytime anywhere, and when you combine that with the option of Variable Ride Control or the All Terrain Package the road trip possibilities are endless.

Acadia also knows how important it is for your hard earned dollar to go as far as possible bringing us to the Standard 4 cylinder 2.4L motor or the optional 6 Cylinder 3.6L motor both with direct injection and variable valve timing make for a significant decrease in fuel consumption compared to the previous model. One factor is weight being 700 lbs lighter than its predecessors as well as a start/stop feature in the standard 4 cylinder meaning less money spent on fuel and more spent on creating memories.  As for those of you wanting to get there now, no power has been sacrificed in the V6, in fact the horsepower and torque have both been increased making the fast lane one you can dominate. denalidetail.jpg

Space, Space, Space, we always need space, whether it be for that 2:00 pm tee time, or that 6 am hockey practice, not to mention the 7 pm dance recital and the 4 pm sales pitch.  As a society our home lives and work lives have been combined more than ever before meaning we need functionality, which is why the 2017 Acadia still offers 3 row seating up to 7 passengers in select models, as well as flat folding and optional configurations giving you choice, space and passenger capability when the need arises.

#RearSeatReminderPrecision Grade, keeping up with todays tech has never been easier with the re-designed Acadia. New features include an available heated second row, Smart Slide technology in middle row seating, Rear Seat Reminder, Keyless Entry, Android Auto and Apple Car Play just to name a few. Unlike ever before you can have apps in your vehicle to make your daily drive safer and more convenient.

Everything about the new Acadia is bursting with modernization, safety, efficiency and an overall fun vehicle to drive! Standard is the word GMC prides themselves in, standard rear view camera, standard LED exterior lighting, standard real aluminum accents, standard rear seat alarm. All these things combine to create a vehicle you can be proud of, look smart driving and most importantly feel safe and secure driving for you and your family.
