GMC is presenting the 2017 Acadia midsize crossover, which is now more refined, versatile and filled with more advanced safety technologies. Likewise, the latest iteration of the Acadia builds on the strong sales momentum in 2015, when GMC sold 96,393 units.
Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing, remarked that typically, sales of a vehicle have a bell during its lifecycle. He noted that in the case of Acadia, the crossover has managed to defy convention with its impressive sustainability.
He added that GMC is confident that its momentum will continue to grow with the new Acadia. Positioned between the compact Terrain and full-size Yukon, the 2017 Acadia offers flexible seating, depending on the model. It could be availed as a five-, six- or seven-passenger seater. Aside from that, the new Acadia boasts of being more maneuverable than the first-generation model.
Rick Spina, executive chief engineer for compact and crossover SUVs at General Motors, quipped that the 2017 Acadia offers a greater feeling of refinement -- from the responsive steering to the passenger interaction with its intuitive features. He added that the new Acadia offers the functionality that the vehicle is known for, while providing customers with many benefits.
