2020 GMC Acadia is here with a bold new look

The 2020 GMC Acadia is here with its bold new look, a new 2.0L turbo engine and the all-new AT4 trim.

Unveiled at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show (as a 2017 model), the GMC Acadia was the first of the quartet (if we count the new Cadillac XT6) to resurface, which is why the GMC representative is also the first GM mid-size SUV to receive a mid-cycle refresh.

And it’s not just about a few design changes, the 2020 GMC Acadia has a grille that’s reminiscent of the Sierra pickup truck. The optical blocks are also redesigned in favor of a more truck-like look. The refresh also applies to the rear fascia, with a new look for the tail lights. As a general rule, the GMC Acadia remains faithful to the utility presented in 2016.

Let’s note, however, the addition of an AT4 livery, the “off-road” crest that is gaining more and more space in the manufacturer’s lineup, GMC, which has applied this level of finish to its Sierra pickup truck and the HD variant of the same truck earlier this year.

This model will be delivered with the 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 and 271 lb-ft of torque, with the manufacturer’s dual-clutch gearbox that allows, on occasions, for two-wheel drive mode to save fuel. In addition, the 2020 GMC Acadia AT4 will be dressed in a typical AT4 attire, as well as more aggressive tires, these fitted on exclusive 17-inch wheels.

But the novelty effect does not end there since GMC decided to add a new engine to the equation, the 2.5-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder and the 3.6-liter V6 are joined by a 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder. This 2.0L engine is developing 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It is also matted to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the cabin is true to the outgoing model, but a new eight-inch-wide enhanced touch screen is now part of the available equipment, while a charging pad for smart devices, a head-up display (later availability), as well as a better resolution rearview camera are among the new features of the 2020 GMC Acadia, which is scheduled to arrive next fall.
