A lot has happened at the Detroit Auto Show, but one of the big announcements that caught our attention was the introduction of the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia. It’s going to be leaner, more efficient, powerful, and much more. Take a look below to see What is new in the 2017 GMC Acadia!
How much does the 2017 GMC Acadia weigh?
The all-new GMC Acadia is leaner and meaner than its predecessors. While it still captures the spirit of the mid-size crossover, it has lost a few inches here and there and is sportier looking. What really improves its performance, though, is its curb weight, which is 700 lbs less than the previous model year — totaling at 3,956 lbs.
Engine Choice in the 2017 GMC Acadia
If you get behind the wheel of a 2017 GMC Acadia you’ll be working with one of its two new powertrains. The first option, a 2.5L I-4, is all about efficiency and has a GM estimated 28 MPG highway rating. Need a bit more power in your crossover? GMC is also including a 3.6L V6 engine as on option in the 2017 Acadia — which produces an estimated 310 horsepower and offers up to 4,000 lbs as a trailer capacity.
How many seats are in the 2017 GMC Acadia?
As far as crossovers go, the 2017 GMC Acadia is highly customizable in terms of how many passengers you want it to hold. The 2017 GMC Acadia can be equipped to hold five, six, or seven passengers depending on the model and configuration. So if you’re looking for a vehicle with the most room, and aren’t concerned with having more than a few buddies along for the ride, the five-passenger GMC Acadia is very attractive. If you have a big family and need all the seats you can get, then the seven-passenger Acadia is there for you.
