Based on reports, it’s expected that GMC will finally introduce a new Acadia at the 2016 North American International Auto Show after ten years, yes ten. Leading up to the big reveal, GMC decided to release a teaser of the now midsize crossover’s backside.
Currently, the GMC Acadia rides on the aged Lambda platform, which also underpins the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave. It’s expected that the 2017 GMC Acadia will shrink in size, placing it out of the full-size crossover realm, and squarely into midsize territory.
The teaser itself is shrouded in darkness, but the pungent LED taillamps, chrome accent and big GMC badge certainly evoke the brand’s design DNA.
Stay tuned for the latest on what’s likely to be the 2017 GMC Acadia as we approach the crossover’s reveal next week.
