2019 GMC Acadia
We expect the GMC Acadia to receive a few minor changes and updates for the 2019 model year, representing the third model year of the second-generation Acadia.
Following is speculative and unconfirmed information about the 2019 GMC Acadia. This page is a continuous work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis as we await official details from General Motors and GMC.
If you notice any inaccuracies about the information provided, or have edits to suggest, please let us know here.
Following are our expectations of the 2019 GMC Acadia:
- Minor changes to features/equipment group structure
- One or two new exterior colors
- One or two new interior color combinations
- No changes to powertrain lineup
The 2019 GMC Acadia continues to be offered as a midsize four-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with either two or three rows of seating.
Like all second-generation units of the GMC Acadia, the 2019 Acadia continues to ride on the GM C1 platform (or “Chi”) shared with the following vehicles:
- 2017 and newer Cadillac XT5 (first generation)
A long-wheelbase version of the C1 platform is used to underpin the following vehicles:
- 2018 and newer Chevrolet Traverse (second generation)
- 2018 and newer Buick Enclave (second generation)
We also expect that the 2019 Cadillac XT6 will ride on the same long-wheelbase version of the C1 architecture.
We expect the 2019 GMC Acadia to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch on or before the third quarter of calendar year 2018.
We expect that the current, second-generation GMC Acadia will remain in production for at least the 2019, 2020, and 2021 model years, and that an all-new, future GMC Acadia will launch in the vicinity of the 2023 model year.
