2024 GMC Acadia: A New Era of SUVs
The automotive realm is always in flux, with brands jostling for the attention of consumers. With the 2024 GMC Acadia, it’s evident that GMC is not just playing the game, but reshaping it entirely. Bigger, bolder, and undeniably more luxurious, the latest Acadia is designed to set new standards in the SUV segment.
“For this next generation, our mission was to reimagine the design and the proportions of the Acadia to create a bolder, more commanding presence, firmly in the vein of the evolving GMC portfolio. With its assertive, powerful stance, the 2024 Acadia evokes a truck-inspired persona, infused with the brand’s signature premium feel,” said Ben Zavala, design lead, GMC Acadia.
Taking a first glance, the new dimensions of the Acadia are immediately apparent. With a length that’s 10.6 inches longer and a stature that stands 3.2 inches taller than its predecessor, this vehicle guarantees more legroom, headroom, and overall comfort. Whether you’re opting for a seven or eight-seater configuration, the roominess is a promise, not just a perk.
What’s more, these new dimensions are not just for show. The Acadia now boasts an impressive 80% more cargo space behind the third row and a staggering 36% more behind the second row. For families, adventurers, and everyone in between, this translates to more memories, more adventures, and fewer “Do we have space for this?” moments.
Under the Hood: Power Meets Efficiency
GMC has outdone itself with the new 2.5L turbocharged engine. Delivering a whopping 328 horsepower and 326 lb-ft of torque, this beast ensures you’re not just cruising, but commanding the road. The eight-speed automatic transmission, paired with the option of an all-wheel drive, further ensures a smooth, powerful drive.
The cherry on top? The redesigned Acadia AT4’s exclusive off-road-capable Active Torque Control AWD system.
And for those worried about trailering capacity, the Acadia puts those concerns to rest. With a max trailering rating of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped, this SUV can haul. Literally.
Tech Innovations: Cruising into the Future
GMC has always been at the forefront of automotive technology, and with the 2024 Acadia, it takes another leap. The Acadia now joins the ranks of the elite GMC vehicles offering Super Cruise—the industry’s first genuine hands-free advanced driver assistance system. Whether you’re navigating city roads or cruising down a freeway, this technology offers unparalleled safety and comfort.
And the feature list doesn’t end there. The new Acadia comes with the latest version of GM’s Super Cruise technology, which includes trailering assist and automatic lane-change capabilities.
The interior sees a fusion of luxury and tech. A 15-inch-diagonal premium GMC infotainment system display is standard across all trims. The system’s compatibility with Google built-in apps, customizable touchscreen displays, and available high-contrast display ensures a seamless tech experience.
Safety First, Always
GMC ensures that every drive in the Acadia is not just comfortable, but also safe. The 2024 model comes packed with advanced safety features, including Forward Collision Alert, HD Rear Vision Camera, Blind Zone Steering Assist, and many more.
Acadia AT4: Off-Roading in Style
The 2024 GMC Acadia AT4 is where luxury meets rugged capability. Its debut marks a shift in the realm of SUVs, giving off-roaders a blend of functionality and premium design. With a 1-inch taller ride height and a wider track, the AT4 guarantees stability and performance, whether on asphalt or dirt roads.
The 18-inch AT tires enhance its handling, ensuring that regardless of the terrain, the AT4 remains responsive and in command.
Its off-road-tuned suspension is further enhanced with hydraulic rebound control, ensuring that even on the roughest of paths, passengers experience a smooth ride.
The exclusive Active Torque Control all-wheel-drive system, combined with twin-clutch rear differentials, guarantees optimal traction in demanding scenarios, so whether you’re crossing a desert or navigating a muddy path, the Acadia AT4 promises a confident drive.
And it’s not just about the mechanics. The AT4’s aesthetics exude a rugged elegance. The front fascia, accented with signature AT4 red tow hooks, and integrated skid plates, makes a bold statement. And it’s not just the exterior that gets special treatment.
Inside, you’re welcomed to the exclusive AT4 interior, which boasts a Forest Storm color palette complemented by Mahogany stitching and chrome-metallic trim, ensuring that even in the wild, luxury is never compromised.
Acadia Denali: The Pinnacle of Luxury
In the world of premium SUVs, the name ‘Denali’ has always stood out, and the 2024 Acadia Denali ensures that legacy continues. This variant of the Acadia showcases what happens when meticulous craftsmanship meets innovative design.
Immediately apparent are its distinctive exterior trim and design features. The unique trim accents, paired with the iconic Denali grille, give it a commanding presence on the road. And for those with an eye for detail, the all-new, 22-inch machined aluminum wheels—the largest ever on Acadia—add a touch of sophisticated flair.
Inside the Acadia Denali, opulence is redefined. The available panoramic, pillar-to-pillar sunroof fills the cabin with natural light, enhancing the authentic laser-etched wood décor adorned with Galvano chrome accents. Comfort is prioritized with perforated leather-appointed heated and ventilated front seats. And for those chilly days, even the second-row outboard seats come with a heating option.
Ensuring that every drive is a serene experience, the Denali is equipped with active noise-canceling technology. Add to that a Bose premium sound system, which comes standard with 12 speakers—with an option to upgrade to 16—and every journey in the Acadia Denali promises to be an auditory delight.
