When the 2013 GMC Acadia arrives at dealerships this fall, it will carry a base price of $34,875. The price, which includes an $825 destination charge, is $2,040 higher than the outgoing 2012 model that starts at $32,835.
The 2013 GMC Acadia (and its Saturn Outlook-like tail lamps) will feature an upgraded exterior and interior elements, including standard Rear Park Assist, rearview camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Color Touch Radio with HD radio, USB port, signature LED daytime running lights, and interior ambient lighting. In addition, “most trim levels” (according to GMC) will come with standard IntelliLink infotainment and industry-first center airbag.
The top-of-the-line Denali trim will start at $46,770 including destination and will offer a power tilt and telescoping steering column, Head-Up Display, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert as standard equipment.
Both Edmundns.com and ALG have named the 2012 Acadia to their respective lists of the industry’s residual value leaders, making the full-size crossover a segment leader in retained value (projected residual value of a vehicle after five years of ownership) — and we see no reason why the 2013 model wouldn’t be able to maintain those accolades into the future.
