The General Motors Company started producing the full size crossover known as the GMC Acadia in 2006, and the sales of this model have increased every year. In the last 2 years only, the company has managed to sell more than 170000 units. This is a great introduction for the 2016 GMC Acadia that will be soon delivered to the market to continue this quite great story for GM.
As far as the latest model of the GMC Acadia is concerned, it will be available in three trim levels: SLE, SLT and Denali, meaning that the SL trim level is out of the picture. The engine lineup will be carried over from the previous model, but with few changes that will improve fuel economy, while the outside appearance will only get bigger wheels, slightly refreshed design and some new colors. The General Motors hopes that these minor changes will still boost the sales and place the new Acadia in line with its competitors.
2016 GMC Acadia Side
When it comes to exterior, the GMC will not make any drastic changes to the 2016 GMC Acadia model, but there will definitely be some slight upgrades and improvements that will make this generation of Acadia unique and even better when compared to the older models. The new crossover SUV will go on a “diet”, which will result in improved fuel economy and overall performances. Furthermore, the outside appearance will come with a more modern and sportier design, while the changes on the front end will include a redesigned front grille and new LED powered headlights.
Release Date Of 2016 GMC Acadia
As far as the inside of the new 2016 GMC Acadia is concerned, it will be able to take in up to 8 adult passengers and provide them a comfortable ride with quite enough head and leg space. Throughout the cabin, the designers have used a lot of high-quality materials such as authentic leather, high quality plastic and aluminum highlights. When it comes to technology, the 2016 GMC Acadia will be equipped with a variety of entertainment and safety features, which include Bluetooth connectivity, audio system, cross traffic alert system, Blind Spot Detection, dual zone climate control, heated front seats and much more.
GMC Acadia Back
Under the hood of the new 2016 GMC Acadia, the engine offer is likely to stay unchanged. The new model will be offered with the same 3.6 l V6 engine, which is capable of pumping out 288 hp and up to 270 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission system and come with a FWD system as a standard, while the AWD system will be offered as an option. If you want to add all-wheel drive to the 2016 GMC Acadia you will need to pay $2,000 extra.
When compared to the previous generation Acadia model, the new model will come with an improved fuel economy, which will certainly be another reason to take this model into consideration, if you are looking to buy a full size crossover. We are still waiting to see official results for the 2016 GMC Acadia but we think that it will be able to return 17/24 mpg city/highway while the all-wheel drive models will come with one point lower fuel economy.
2016 GMC Acadia Price
For all of those who are waiting for the 2016 GMC Acadia to appear, we can tell you that you will have to wait for just a few months more, since the new model is expected to hit the market this summer or early fall. The expected price should not be much higher than the price of the previous Acadia model, and it will start at around $35,000 for the base model, and go up to $50,000 for the Denali AWD version. Just like always prices will be heavily influenced by the optional equipment that every buyer chose.
