Other exterior changes include wrap-around rear glass and a refined rear spoiler, as well as new patterns for the 18 and 19 inch wheels.
The Acadia’s interior will also upgraded soft-touch materials, with french stitching and rd ambient lighting on the dashboard. SLT models will also get aluminum accents on the console, doors, and dash. The 2013 model will also come standard with GMC’s Color Touch Radio, which was recently introduced on the 2012 Terrain.
