Acadia is all-new for 2024
Longer body means more space
When GMC launched the last version of its Acadia, it took a risk. The Acadia was significantly shorter than its Chevrolet sibling, a way to help give customers more options in the market and a better fit for their needs. It looks like buyers decided they wanted big and not little, so for 2024 the GMC Acadia is getting longer.
The 2024 Acadia is 10.6 inches (269mm) longer than the 2023 model, and 3.2 inches taller. That gives it 80 percent more cargo space behind the third row of seats and 36 percent more behind the second row. It also adds more space for passengers who are sitting in the back.
A 2.5L four-cylinder replaces the old 3.6L V6. The turbocharged engine makes 328 hp and 326 lb-ft of torque, well over the 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of the V6. The old 228 hp 2.0L engine is gone. All 2024 Acadia models get an eight-speed auto, and AWD is standard in Canada (optional in the US).
The 2024 GMC Acadia will get Super Cruise, the company’s hands-off driver assistance system. The system covers more than 644,000 km of roads in Canada and the U.S. On the Acadia, it will be offered on Elevation Premium and AT4 as well as Denali.
Acadia’s new cabin gets a 15-inch screen with Google built-in. We’ve seen the OS before on other GM products and it is smooth and crisp, with Google Maps and the Google Play app store pre-installed.
Other tech includes up to nine camera views and a standard driver assistance suite that has forward collision alert, front pedestrian and bicycle braking, high beam assist, rear cross-traffic braking, adaptive cruise, lane keep assist, blind spot assists, and more.
Production of the GMC Acadia starts in a few months, and it is expected to hit dealers in early 2024. More details, including pricing, will come later.
