GMC has just unveiled the all-new Acadia, and with it, it launches a new era for the brand’s family of SUVs and crossovers. The 2024 Acadia is longer, wider, and taller than its predecessor, with an all-new premium-appointed interior, elevated exterior design language, an enhanced suite of technology, and an extensive list of standard safety features. Ford Explorer and Kia Telluride, watch out.
2024 GMC Acadia: Details
The 2024 GMC Acadia is larger in all dimensions than the previous model. It sits on a 10.6-inch-longer wheelbase and is 3.2 inches taller, enabling enhanced passenger spaciousness and an expanded seating configuration for seven or eight passengers, depending on the trim. Of course, with a larger size comes more storage space and versatility – including nearly 80 percent more cargo space behind the third row and more than 36 percent more behind the second row compared to the current generation.
All trims of the Acadia are powered by a new 2.5L turbocharged engine that delivers more power and trailering capability than the previous generation. Producing 328 horsepower and 326 lb-ft of torque, the new engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic on all trims with available all-wheel drive, including an exclusive off-road-capable Active Torque Control AWD system on the redesigned Acadia AT4. The powertrain also helps maintain the GMC Acadia’s strong trailering capability. When properly equipped, it has a max trailering rating of 5,000 pounds.
The 2024 GMC Acadia is the fifth nameplate within the GMC portfolio to offer Super Cruise. It also marks the first time that Super Cruise will be available on GMC trims such as Elevation Premium and AT4 in addition to Denali. In addition to its bold exterior, the 2024 Acadia features an all-new interior with next-level technology integration and premium appointments. The focal point of the interior is a portrait-oriented 15-inch-diagonal premium GMC infotainment system display, which is standard across all trims. Married with the new system is a new standard 11-inch-diagonal driver information center.
Off-road capability reaches a new peak for the nameplate with the all-new AT4. Advanced off-road driving technologies and features are matched with distinctive design cues and exclusive interior appointments, enabling customers to go further with confidence and comfort. AT4 exclusive features include:
- A 1-inch taller ride height and a wider track, coupled with 18-inch AT tires, enhance stability, handling, and capability when driving off-road
- Off-road-tuned suspension with hydraulic rebound control
- AT4-exclusive Active Torque Control all-wheel-drive system with twin-clutch rear differentials for optimal traction and control in demanding scenarios.
- Front fascia accented with signature AT4 red tow hooks and integrated skid plates.
- Selectable drive modes, including Terrain mode and Hill Descent Control
- Exclusive AT4 interior elements featuring Forest Storm interior with Mahogany stitching and additional chrome-metallic trim.
The next-generation 2024 GMC Acadia will be produced at GM’s Lansing Delta Assembly in Michigan and is expected to be available in early 2024. Additional details, including pricing, will be announced closer to the start of production.
