The 2024 GMC Acadia is an all-new, third-generation of GM’s premium three-row midsize crossover SUV. The Acadia has become a popular choice for shoppers in Woodbridge and Vaughan who want minivan levels of passenger and cargo capacity in a fabulously stylish and desirable SUV package. New exterior and interior styling and increased dimensions join a host of technological upgrades to make the 2024 Acadia is tasteful and impressive upgrade on its predecessors.
Compared to some redesigned SUVs we’ve seen over the last year or two, the aesthetic changes to the 2024 GMC Acadia are relatively subtle and modest. With the previous generation proving such a popular choice with SUV shoppers throughout Brampton, Kleinburg, Mississauga, and the Greater Toronto Area, it makes sense not to stray too far from a winning formula. So, while most things about the all-new Acadia are bigger and better, the models and trim levels remain comfortably familiar. The 2024 lineup starts with the impressively equipped Elevation, and then goes to the Elevation Premium, the off-road focused AT4, and ends with the range-topping Denali.
GMC hasn’t yet seen fit to go hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or all-electric with the Acadia powertrain, but there is significant change under the hood of the all-new 2024 model. The old V-6 is out of the door, and in comes a more compact, modern, and efficient turbo-four instead. While a four-pot isn’t anything new for the Acadia, the inline-four turbo that powers all versions of the 2024 GMC Acadia certainly is. Not only is the new 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine more powerful than the previous 2.0-litre unit, it’s also more powerful than the old V-6.
The Acadia’s new engine is a 2.5-litre inline-four turbo that develops 328 horsepower and 326 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard across the lineup. However, the AT4 goes further with a revised version of the exclusive off-road-capable Active Torque Control AWD system for extra off-road capability.
Whichever way you slice it, the all-new Acadia is bigger than its preceding models in every way. The new model is 3.2inches taller than the second-generation, and the wheelbase is a full 10.6 inches longer. This helps deliver more space for passengers and cargo, and an expanded seating configuration to handle seven or eight passengers, depending on the trim. Even your cargo gets the luxury treatment with almost 80 percent more room behind the third-row seats, and more than 36 percent more capacity behind the second-row seats.
Along with its extra space and premium quality, the all-new Acadia is awash with the latest technology. The Super Cruise hands-free advanced driver assistance system is available for all models above the base Elevation, and the focal point of the cabin is a portrait-oriented 15-inch-diagonal premium GMC infotainment system display that’s standard across the range. There’s an expansive list of the very latest safety and driver-assistance features, including up to nine available camera angles for ultimate visibility all round the 2024 Acadia.
The 2024 GMC Acadia had a tough job to improve on its predecessor, and it’s remarkable that it’s managed to do it in a way that retains everything that was great already, while improving in almost every area.
