The 2017 GMC Acadia

2017 GMC Acadia - Crossover SUV
New SUV purchases are increasing year over year in Canada. Cargo space, comfort, and powerful performance have always belonged to SUVs. However, the fuel efficiency of those vehicles has long held them back. But now, that is beginning to change.

Cargo & Comfort

The 2017 GMC Acadia’s third-row premium seating with easy access allows seven passengers to fit comfortably. Active noise cancellation and french-stitched seats keep the cabin quiet and comfortable, while the standard rear-vision camera provides dynamic guidelines for parking.

In every 2017 Acadia, you also get the following standard features:

  • OnStar with 4G LTE and Built-In Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Available Bose Premium 8-Speaker System
  • Standard Rear Vision Camera
  • Enhanced Second-Row Smart Slide® Seats


Snow, ice, rain, and Canadian potholes – the demands placed on the average vehicle are extreme. But the Acadia has a solution for them all. An available 3.6L V6 engine with Active Fuel Management and 310 horsepower can boss the road. Meanwhile, the standard drive mode selector shifts to match the conditions. FWD, AWD, Off-Road, Snow, and Sport are all available for Acadia drivers. And, despite its size and strength, the Acadia still gets remarkable fuel economy. In the city, it’s rated for 11L/100km. For comparison, the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer get 12.4 and 13.9 litres, respectively. The Acadia’s fuel economy is boosted by the Auto Stop/Start technology in its engine.

Mid-size SUVs are one of the most popular vehicle categories in Canada. They can do a lot of things well, but drivers often compromise on one aspect of performance, or another. With the Acadia, there’s no need. You can get ample interior space, comfort, and professional-grade performance.
