  • Overview

    A red 2022 GMC Acadia is angled left.

    The station wagon craze of the late 1980s led the way to the minivan that replaced the wood-paneled wagons made famous by families like the Griswolds of National Lampoon fame. Minivans eventually paved the way to SUVs that offered the spaciousness of a van, truck-like capability, and the luxuries of a sedan. This is the birthright of the 2022 GMC Acadia, a midsize SUV that shows just how far the segment of family-size vehicles has come over the last three decades.

    The Acadia is proof that you can have it all in a family vehicle without sacrificing sophistication, capability, or luxury. First introduced in 2006, the Acadia is now in its second generation and continues to impress with its affordability, power, versatility, and innovation. Its spacious interior has plenty to offer across three rows of seats while a host of technology keeps you connected, your passengers entertained, and everyone safe wherever the road loads. This is the Acadia that leads the segment of midsize SUVs designed with families in mind.

  • Features

    Offering seating for up to seven across three rows, the 2022 Acadia is an excellent option for families who need plenty of room and the capability to go wherever adventure calls. The 2022 Acadia lineup is especially noteworthy because it’s affordable and versatile. We see this in its many trims and packages that are designed to meet a variety of budget and driving needs.

    Your Trim Options

    The Acadia SLE and SLT start the lineup and come standard with GMC’s 2.0-liter turbo engine under the hood, an 8-inch center touchscreen display, available navigation, LED lighting, and the GMC Pro Safety Plus suite of safety and driver-assist tools. The Acadia AT4 is designed with rugged adventures in mind and distinguishes itself with an exclusive AT4 grille, black chrome details, 17-inch gloss-black wheels, and all-terrain tires. It also comes equipped with GMC’s Active Torque Control AWD system that makes the AT4 a capable performer after the pavement ends. The Denali is the most luxurious in the Acadia lineup and, like the AT4, is powered by the beefier 3.6-liter V6 engine. It distinguishes itself with 20-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels and adds a host of conveniences and technology features, including an 8-inch center touchscreen display with navigation and a 6-inch head-up display.

    Spice Things Up

    You can further customize the Acadia with packages like the Elevation Edition and the Denali Ultimate Package. The Elevation Edition outfits the Acadia with 20-inch aluminum painted gloss black wheels and 20-inch all-season Blackwall tires. It’s immediately recognizable with its black grille insert, surround, mirror caps, and gloss black roof rails. You can extend this blacked-out aesthetic by opting for black GMC emblems.

    The Denali Ultimate Package takes the Denali to the next level and adds a dual SkyScape power sunroof to the SUV. The package also adds advanced tools and features like HD Surround Vision, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Rear Camera Mirror, and Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking. Trailering is made easier with towing tools that include the harness and hitch, a heavy-duty cooling system, alternator, and Hitch Guidance with Hitch View.

  • Capability

    Versatile and capable, the 2022 GMC Acadia is ready for every adventure, whether that means navigating the school drop-off line, cruising down the highway during your daily commute, or towing a small camper to the lake for the weekend. The Acadia is designed to handle it all. GMC equips the SUV with two capable powertrains and a suite of performance features that deliver the power and control you need exactly when you need it.

    Your Two Powertrain Options

    The Acadia’s power comes from a 2.0-liter turbo or 3.6-liter V6 engine, both of which are mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and are equipped with stop-start technology that you can deactivate with a switch. The 2.0-liter turbo, which is standard on the SLE and SLT, churns out 228 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque while averaging 29 MPG on the highway. This power makes the Acadia capable of hauling up to 3,500 pounds. The 3.6-liter V6 boosts the Acadia’s overall capability to 310 horses and 271 lb-ft of torque with a 4,000-pound towing maximum. This power doesn’t drastically decrease the Acadia’s fuel economy, with the 3.6-liter averaging 27 MPG on the highway.

    Performance Tools

    The Acadia’s powertrains deliver the power you need, while a suite of performance tools gives you more control when you’re behind the wheel. Every trim in the Acadia lineup comes standard with GMC’s Traction Select System. This system allows you to customize how the Acadia performs based on the terrain using modes like Normal, Snow, Sport, and Trailer/Tow. When the Acadia is equipped with AWD, the system adds AWD Mode and Off-Road Mode to extend the Acadia’s capability on more rugged terrain.

    With the Acadia’s engines boosting its trailering capability, it makes sense that GMC equips the SUV with enhanced trailering tools that give you the confidence you need when hauling a heavy load. Hitch Guidance with Hitch View works in conjunction with the Rear Vision Camera to give you a clear view behind the SUV to make hitching up to a trailer stress-free. You can also use the camera to check your trailer while you’re driving, which gives you greater peace of mind.

    Aside from towing, the Acadia is also a capable performer on the trail, as evident on trims like the AT4. The AT4’s rugged design and tools like Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control are exclusive to the trim. Hill Start Assist maintains brake pressure as you release the brake and accelerate up a hill, while Hill Descent Control relies on the Acadia’s antilock brakes to deliver a controlled descent on rough or steep terrain. The Denali trim adds another layer of confidence and luxury with Adaptive Ride Control, which uses a continuous damping control system to actively monitor the terrain and adjust the Acadia’s dampers as needed to deliver a smoother ride.

  • Technology

    There’s no shortage of intuitive technology on the 2022 Acadia, whether you’re looking at the center touchscreen display or relying on the many driver-assist tools that actively minimize the potential for collision. The heart of the Acadia’s connectivity features rests in the center touchscreen display that’s home to the GMC infotainment system. Through the system, you have access to a WiFi hotspot, built-in Amazon Alexa, a variety of in-vehicle apps, navigation, and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

    GMC extends this connectivity with a variety of other tools like the head-up display, rear camera mirror, and high-definition surround vision. The 6-inch head-up display, which is standard on the Denali, is designed to keep your focus on the road ahead by projecting information like your speed, fuel level, tachometer, safety and driver-assist alerts, and navigational cues in a crisp display on the windshield. The rear camera mirror extends your field of vision behind the SUV and allows you to easily switch between the traditional mirror and the camera with the touch of a button. The high-definition surround vision takes this view one step further by using multiple cameras to give you a bird’s eye view around the SUV, which makes it easier to park and navigate congested areas.

    Safety and Driver-Assist Tools

    One of the most remarkable features of the Acadia is the GMC Pro Safety Plus suite of safety and driver-assist tools that comes standard on every trim. The suite equips the Acadia with Automatic Emergency Braking, a Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, IntelliBeam lights, Front and Rear Park Assist, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. These tools enhance your visibility around the Acadia and actively alert you to potential collisions with features like Automatic Emergency Braking even capable of bringing the SUV to an emergency stop if a collision is imminent.

    GMC also offers a host of other tools like Adaptive Cruise Control that comes standard on the Denali and replaces traditional cruise control by automatically adjusting the Acadia’s cruising speed based on the flow of traffic. Teen Driver is another standard feature that gives parents peace of mind when their young driver gets behind the wheel. The system automatically activates a set of safety tools, gives parents control over certain features, and provides a driving report that shows areas that need improvement.
