Introducing the mid-cycle refreshed and revamped 2020 GMC Acadia with more power and style. Launched in three different trims, the 202 GMC Acadia now justifies its extrinsic price tag thanks to the upgrades that GMC is able to pull off with it.
The GMC Acadia has received a plethora of appearance changes at the outside with a Sierra pick-up truck-like C-shaped headlights with a blunt and blacked out grille which is massive in size roaring like a lion. Choose between five to seven-seaters depending upon the trims but be careful, it is packed with power like no predecessor.
Gone is that chunky 3.6L V6 engine producing a colossal 310 hp and 271 lb-ft because GMC has replaced it with a smaller but optimized turbocharged 2.0L V4 engine capable of producing 230 hp and 258 lb-ft. But that’s not all because General Motors Corporation has actually combined it with the capability to produce low-speed torque delivery at a feeble 1,500 rpm while the active fuel management system works towards improving the SUV’s fuel economy to a greater mile.
There is a 2.5L V4 entry-level SLE variant too along with a top-notched AT4 trim that goes with the GMC’s sub-brand AT4 that was kicked off a while ago. Further, GMC has replaced the old-school 6-speed automatic transmission for a more persistent nine-speed automatic transmission coupled with an electronically controlled gear selection push buttons thereby replacing the old gear shifter for a powerful driving experience even in the not-so-suitable driving conditions.
The stop/start deactivation switch has made its way to the standard variant that grabs a higher score in Acadia’s fuel economy. The rear has received a revamp as well with its C-shaped tail lights and updated rear look with all-standard LED lighting to cheer up your mood plus, there is a giant 8.0-inch enhance infotainment system with voice recognition and better image resolution to name a few.
There are not many words on both rear and front suspension as yet but you’ll get a standard 18 or 20-inch or 17-inch with AT4 trim twin-clutch-all-wheel drive assembly that allows the SUV to reach peaks that its predecessor and in fact, a few of its competitors are unable to sustain. The 2020 GMC Acadia is expected to fetch around $32,800 with standard trim.
