The all-new 2017 GMC Acadia has been re-imagined with a design that offer amazing versatility and refinement while targeting the heart of the mid-sized SUV. The 2017 Acadia represents a vehicle designed with customer's preferences at its core. Current and prospective customers asked for a vehicle that is better maneuverable and fuel-efficient, while maintaining its polished design.
The calculated redesign of the 2017 Acadia embodies a cutback in both weight and size. It's 700 lbs lighter and 7.2 inches shorter than the current model. This new design allows for an enhanced driving dynamic that is more responsive while offering greater maneuverability and garage fit. In addition to enhanced responsiveness and maneuverability, the re-scoping of the 2017 Acadia pays dividends at the gas pump – where a new standard 2.5L I-4 engine offers an estimated fuel consumption of 8.4 L/100 km hwy (FWD).

The 2017 Acadia builds on a legacy of intuitive functionality, with new features such as a split-folding second-row seat that improves on the original Smart Slide feature of the current model. It offers greater flexibility, including the capability of the curbside seat sliding and tilting forward, even with a forward-facing child seat in place, while the driver-side section tips and slides forward for easier access to the third row.
The 50/50-split third-row seat folds flat for a completely flat load floor behind the second row and when the second row is also folded, there are 2,237 liters (79 cubic feet) of cargo room. Levers at the rear of the vehicle make it easier to fold the second- and third-row seats.
The new Acadia offers a greater emphasis on refinement, while remaining instantly recognizable with an evolution of the vehicle’s signature, professional grade design cues such as a chrome-trimmed grille, squared off and flared wheel arches and a wraparound rear side windows with dark D-pillars.
New dimensional grilles and wraparound headlamps – HID lamps on Denali and halogen projectors on other models – reinforce the confident, refined appearance, while standard LED signature lighting on all models reflect GMC’s premium attributes. Complementing C-shape rear lighting graphics add a cohesive detail to the design.
Premium cues distinguish the Acadia Denali. Like all Denali models, it features a dimensional chrome grille, along with integrated chrome side trim, chrome-accented door handles, a chrome lower-rear fascia and specific six-spoke wheels.
Inside, all Acadia trim levels feature unique interior colour and trim combinations and incorporate authentic aluminum trim.
