General Motors’ vehicle order guides have revealed that its GMC brand will continue selling the first-generation GMC Acadia crossover alongside the all-new, second-generation model for the 2017 model year.
As customary for the outgoing generations of GM’s vehicles, the first-generation Acadia will take on the Limited moniker to become the 2017 Acadia Limited. The continuation of the first iteration of the Acadia for the 2017 model year will mark the ninth year that the full-size crossover will have been on the market in much the same form, save for a mid-cycle refresh for the 2013 model year.
In addition to the name change, the 2017 Acadia Limited also gets the following features as standard equipment:
- New 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels (PPE)
- Color Touch Navigation radio with IntelliLink (UI8)
- Head-up display (UV6)
- Cargo area audio system controls (RCA)
- HID projected low beam headlamps (TVD)
- Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning (UVF)
To note, the first-generation Acadia, including this 2017 GMC Acadia Limited, rides on GM’s Lambda platform and is a completely different vehicle from the all-new 2017 GMC Acadia, which rides on GM’s C1XX platform and ushers in the second generation of the Acadia nameplate.
Following are RPO-level changes and updates to the 2017 GMC Acadia Limited:
- Retail only Limited FWD and AWD models offered
- Following items now offered as standard equipment:
- (UI8) Color Touch Navigation radio with IntelliLink
- (UV6) Head-up display
