2017 GMC Acadia Priced at Less Than $30k

New, Midsize Crossover Starts at $29,995

Feb 16, 2016
When the 2017 GMC Acadia hits dealers this spring, it’ll carry a suggested price that starts $1,905 less than the model it replaces at $29,995. Some thanks to the lower price goes to the Acadia’s midsize positioning, placing it a size class beneath its predecessor. That base price is for the Acadia SL FWD, which comes standard with a 2.5L I-4 producing 194 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque.

Optioning all-wheel drive on the Acadia will also require stepping into the SLE trim level; the cheapest four-wheel–driven midsize GMC will cost $35,375, representing a $2,000 charge over the SLE front-driver. That same premium holds true for the $39,275 Acadia SLT and $45,845 Acadia Denali. A sophisticated multi-clutch all-wheel drive system is standard on the $40,040 Acadia All Terrain. A $925 destination charge will be added to each vehicle’s price as well.
There’s no word on the availability or pricing of the Acadia’s optional 3.6L V-6, which makes a heady 310 hp. Able to tow up to 4,000 pounds, the Acadia’s V-6 should provide ample motivation for the newly lightened crossover. Speaking of lightening, an I-4–powered Acadia should weigh in at less than 4,000 pounds.

For customers who want a quiet, luxurious SUV but don’t need eight seats and acres of cargo space, the new Acadia should be a good option. Its sedan-rivaling pricing and efficiency should make it attractive to today’s crossover-crazy shoppers, too. And for those who simply must have a large SUV, the 2016 Acadia’s Chevrolet and Buick platform-mates will soldier on into 2017 as fullsize crossovers.
