A true Professional Grade midsize SUV with a fresh, bold exterior appearance, improved interior design, advanced technologies, and driver-focused powertrain options.
DISTINCTIVE DESIGN, REFINED INSIDE AND OUT
We’ve built upon Acadia’s already taut, athletic form by infusing it with the bold, powerful attitude and precision-crafted detailing that are hallmarks of GMC design. From the A-pillars forward, the 2020 Acadia wears all-new sheet metal. Drawing inspiration from our Next Generation Sierra 1500, Acadia’s strong, expressive hood flows into a wide, tall, bold grille, which neatly interlocks with both the front bumper fascia and headlamps in a geometric fashion.
Acadia’s striking headlamp design incorporates LED lighting technology on all trim levels, and also incorporate GMC’s distinctive C-shaped signature lighting elements, which provide a recognizable design cue even at night. The LED lighting is also used in Acadia’s new taller tail lamp design, and within the fog lamps on Acadia SLT models.
REFINED DRIVING EXPERIENCE
Acadia’s powertrain options expand further for the 2020 model year. A 2.5L four-cylinder remains the base engine offering in Acadia SL and SLE models, while a potent 3.6L, 310-hp V6 engine is available, and standard on Acadia AT4.
2020 Acadia SLT and Acadia Denali models are equipped with an all-new 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine as standard equipment. Producing 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, this engine is designed to provide the perfect blend of power and efficiency, along with premium refinement. A twin-scroll turbocharger helps the engine respond punctually off the line, while variable valve timing and Active Fuel Management allow the engine to adjust for power or efficiency, as demanded by the driver.
All 2020 Acadia models are also equipped with a new nine-speed automatic transmission, and also feature start/stop technology (with deactivation button) – which, when active, can stop the engine when the vehicle comes to a halt in order to reduce fuel consumption, and automatically re-start the engine.
The Acadia is available in either front or all-wheel drive configuration and incorporates a Traction Select system, which allows the driver to adjust chassis and powertrain attributes to suit a variety of driving conditions. The Acadia AT4 features an advanced Twin-Clutch all-wheel-drive system, which further enhances traction on loose surfaces or broken terrain. For 2020, Acadia’s rear suspension tuning has been revised to provide improved ride quality over rough roads. Acadia Denali also continues to offer Continuous Dampening Control, which adjusts suspension damper tuning in real time to optimize ride and handling for the road at hand.
