The 2019 GMC 2019 Acadia adds four new exterior colors – Dark Sky Metallic, Pepperdust Metallic, Smokey Quartz Metallic, and Red Quartz Tintcoat. Here’s a first look at the new Dark Sky hue.
Assigned color code GJI and touch-up paint code WA-626D, Dark Sky Metallic can be seen as a halfway point between Blue Steel Metallic and Iridium Metallic. It’s not quite blue and not quite gray, but rather almost a pale blend of the two.
Dark Sky Metallic on the 2019 GMC Acadia costs an extra $395 and is available in conjunction with all interior color combinations and trim levels except for base SL (1SV) models.
2019 GMC Acadia Trim Levels:
- SL (1SV)
- SLE (3SA, 3SB)
- SLT (4SA, 4SB)
- Denali (5SA)
2019 GMC Acadia Interior Color Combinations:

As of this writing, dealers are well-stocked with the 2019 GMC Acadia, since the GM Spring Hill factory in Tennessee has been assembling and shipping the 2019 model to dealers for the past several weeks. However, models coated in Dark Sky Metallic are either en route or are just now beginning to arrive. Availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.

About GMC Acadia
The GMC Acadia is a mid-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV). It is the largest GMC crossover currently offered, slotting above the compact GMC Terrain.
The current model was introduced for the 2017 model year and represents the second generation of the Acadia nameplate. It rides on the GM C1 platform shared with the Cadillac XT5. It is expected that the upcoming, future Chevrolet Blazer will ride on the same platform. Meanwhile, the second-generation Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave use a longer-wheelbase variant of the same architecture.
Compared to its first-generation predecessor, the second-gen Acadia is an all-new vehicle that is one size segment smaller, while also being sleeker, more modern, more tech-laden and much lighter. Despite its smaller size, the second-gen Acadia manages to retain three rows of seating and generous cargo space.
For the 2018 model year, the Acadia got a new color, automatic heated steering wheel in place of the manual heated steering wheel, Tire Fill Alert, some new wheels on the SLT-1 All Terrain model, as well as broader availability of the 3.6L V-6 engine and All-Terrain package.
For the 2019 model year, the Acadia receives several new colors, Express Up and Down window controls for the driver's-side controls as standard on the SLE-2 and SLT-1 trims, the expanded availability of the Ebony interior color with the All-Terrain package on the SLT trim level and the introduction of the Acadia Black Edition.
A midcycle refresh is coming for the 2020 model year that's expected to deliver updated styling and the new GM 9-speed automatic transmission.
