The 2015 GMC Acadia is what GMC thinks is the perfect SUV for a big family that likes going on trips. It offers 8 comfortable seats that are easily accessible through the two big doors at the back of the car. Design has been slightly changed and now we are getting improved model that is fresh and competitive.
Also, thanks to an improved engine it will now use less fuel than before while delivering the same amount of power. The car will now cost around $32.000 for the base model which is almost 2000 dollars cheaper when compared to previous version. Reports suggest that it will become available for sale in the early 2015 but this has not yet been confirmed.
Price Of 2015 GMC Acadia
As we said before, the engine has been refreshed and now the 3.6 liter V6 in the Acadia provides a total power of 295 horsepower and as much as 275 lb-ft of torque. This has been achieved with a new engine managements system that also reduces total fuel consumption to around 22 MPG on average (from the original 20 MPG). The engine itself is smooth and provides most of its torque from very low down the range making it perfect for highway cruising. Its only downside is the fact that it might seem a bit unresponsive on sudden acceleration.
The base car will come with a 6 speed transmission that will be coupled to the front wheels. The optional four wheel drive system comes with a different 6 speed automatic transmission that also offers low-range via a torque converter. This is more suitable for off-road use and thanks to the electronic differentials you won’t be able to get stuck easily.
There are a few new options available on this car but even the lowest end model comes with a premium audio system, electric front seats, manual AC as well as heated steering wheel. The medium range model comes with a bit more features including a satellite navigation system, leather upholstery, better audio system and heated seats. The Denali is the premium model and comes with everything you would want including an infotainment system, ventilated and heated seats, LCD screens for the middle and back rows of seats as well as a massive moon-roof.
The 2015 GMC Acadia comes now with new bumpers that give it a more aggressive and masculine look. It is now a bit taller and a bit wider meaning that there is more room to the interior as well as it will drive better. The base wheels have been changed from the steel ones to the 17 inch alloys with the all-season tires. The rear bumper now features dual exhaust for the medium range and the premium models.
2015 GMC Acadia Release Date
At this point we only know that the 2015 GMC Acadia will be delivered at the beginning of 2015th but we do not have the exact date. Official presentation could happen even earlier, most likely during October or November since we already have all the details we need to know about this new model year. There is no doubt that we will have to wait only for a little longer.
