2017 GMC Acadia Specs

2017 GMC Acadia Redesign

The redesigned 2017 GMC Acadia is now the prototypical midsize crossover vehicle. Its slightly smaller size pits it against all the top five-passenger contenders in the segment, yet it’s still a sizable vehicle that’s capable of functioning as the sole family hauler thanks to three rows of seats.

Redesigned from the ground up, the 2017 GMC Acadia boasts a sleeker look, enhanced technology and greater efficiency in a slightly smaller and significantly lighter package that “strategically repositions” this midsize SUV to further separate it from GMC’s full-size Yukon. Based on all-new platform architecture that also underpins the new Cadillac XT5, the recast Gen II Acadia still has 3-row seating for up to seven and generous cargo space but packs it into a more maneuverable and driver-friendly configuration. As part of its comprehensive recasting, the 2017 Acadia also gains a host of new assist systems and now offers a new 4-cylinder engine choice as well as its traditional V6, front-drive or a sophisticated 4-wheel drive system and a new off-road-focused All-Terrain variant.

Although its absolute scale has been trimmed a bit, the 2017 Acadia SUV’s cabin boasts an even more upscale character helped by a modern design that includes additional soft-touch surfaces, upgraded trim and active noise cancellation. Despite a wheelbase that now matches the compact 5-passenger GMC Terrain, the Acadia’s new architecture still allows for three adult-accommodating rows of seats. The second tier 60-40 bench or Captain’s Chairs features an upgraded Smart Slide system for easier access to the 50/50 third row and both fold flat to expand the fairly modest 12.8 cu. ft. of base cargo space to a quite usable 79.0 cu. ft. maximum.

2017 GMC Acadia Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 GMC Acadia. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

In addition to the new chassis and reduced weight and dimensions, the new Acadia has a more refined profile. At the front, the new Acadia features a redesigned chromed grille which is flanked by wraparound headlights. Halogen projector headlights are offered as standard but the Denali trim gets HID headlights. All trim levels feature LED DRLs.

GMC has designed the new Acadia cabin to be very functional. While the outgoing models were offered in three rows of seating accommodating 8 passengers, the new Acadia will be availed in either 2 rows accommodating five passengers or 3 rows accommodating either 6 or 7 passengers.

The second-row seats have a split-folding capability and can also slide forward to allow easy access to the third row. The third row has a 50/50 split-folding capability and can be folded flat to increase cargo space from 12.8 cubic feet to 41.7 cubic feet. Folding the second row seats which has 60/40 split-folding capability expands the cargo space to 79 cubic feet.

The side profile features squared-off and flared wheel arches. At the rear, the vehicle features wraparound windows and dark D-pillars as well as redesigned C-shaped taillights .All trims except the Denali ride on 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Denali trim features a dimensional chrome grille, 6-spoke, 20-inch aluminum wheels and an extensive use of chrome on door handles, on the sides and on the lower rear fascia.

Extensive use of high-strength steel is what has enabled GMC to achieve the dramatic weight loss. Its reduction in size has also contributed. The new 2017 GMC Acadia is Mid-Size SUV,  193.6 inches long which makes it 7.2 inches shorter than the outgoing model. Its width and height have also been reduced by 3.5 inches and 3.9 inches respectively. The vehicle rides on a 112.5-inch wheelbase which is 7.2 inches shorter than that of the 2016 model.

The vehicle also features a pull-out storage drawer on the rear center console. There is also a new rear seat alert that reminds the driver if an item is left on the rear seats. All three rows get USB charging ports. For connectivity, the Acadia features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which are integrated with its GMC IntelliLink system and the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

About the Acadia, we said that the “steering is firm and responsive, and there is very little body roll.” The attractive interior has lots of different trims and lots of storage with plenty of cubbies, including space to store the key. In our first experience with the five-, six-, or seven-passenger crossover, we found the infotainment system to be “top-notch.” The Acadia, which offers 4G LTE Wi-Fi, is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2017 GMC Acadia Review

2017 GMC Acadia Engine

The new 2017 Acadia achieves a respectable 21/26 mpg city/highway in front-drive form with the standard 2.5-liter I-4 that produces 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque (AWD models get 21/25 mpg city/highway). The optional 3.6-liter V6 is good for 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque and manages 18/25 mpg city/highway with front- and all-wheel drive. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity is up to 4,000 pounds on the 2017 Acadia, which is 7.2 inches shorter than the 2016 model.

The new GMC Acadia will be offered with two drive-train options. The smaller Acadia will be offered with a direct-injected 2.5 L inline-4 engine. The engine comes good with 194 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque.  The engine will be offered in both FWD and AWD. The automaker estimates the engine to return 22 mpg in city and 28 mpg on highway drives for FWD models though official EPA ratings are yet to be released.

The 2017 Acadia is also some 700 pounds lighter, which, along with a newly available four-cylinder engine, helps to improve fuel economy. With the smaller footprint and weight reduction, it’s easier to maneuver and drive around turns with confidence, too. A V6 engine is still available, along with all-wheel drive. Also new for 2017 is an All Terrain model. Contrary to its name, though, it is limited to light off-roading. It also does away with the third row of seats for added cargo capacity.

The 3.6 L V-6 rated at 288 hp on the outgoing models is set to be replaced by a more potent 3.6 L V-6. The new engine is estimated to produce 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. The model is estimated to return 17 mpg in city and 23 mpg on highway drives for FWD models which is a slight improvement from the current models.

The Acadia offers two new naturally aspirated engines, both backed by a smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic. Sole motivator in the base front-wheel-drive-only SL and standard in the SLE-1/SLE-2/SLT-1 models, the new 2.5-liter 4-cylinder makes 194 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. The first GMC engine to feature Start-Stop technology, it earns GM-estimated 21/26-mpg EPA City/Highway marks in front-wheel drive (FWD) Acadia models and 21/25 in AWD variants. The new 3.6-liter V6 standard in all other Acadias makes a considerably stouter 310 horses and 271 lb-ft of torque but features Active Fuel Management that turns it into a V4 under light loads. It nets GM-estimated 18/25 mpg EPA numbers in both FWD and AWD configurations while raising the Acadia’s max tow rating from 1,000 to a still-modest 4,000 pounds.
