The 2017 GMC Acadia has made a move for midsize territory. The ten-year run of the original, full-size Acadia will come to an end for consumers this spring, but the Lambda-based CUV will continue on for fleet purchases for some time.
Along with the market repositioning, the 2017 GMC Acadia has also seen a fair price cut from the full-size model. The $29,990 starting price is down $1,905 from the 2016 model year. But, we’re here to ask if the pricing is right on the money in today’s community question.
For some perspective, we’ve pulled up the 2017 Acadia’s main competitor: the Toyota Highlander. Upon firing up the configurator for a base Highlander, we can see the equipment is on par with the GMC. Even more so, the two midsize crossovers start exactly at $29,990.
Therefore, we’d say the pricing is right. But, GMC could have pulled a fast one and undercut the Toyota but just a tad. Regardless, the base model is never the mass mover, and GMC knows it with its aggressive pricing tier for All Terrain and Denali variants.
