The updated 2020 GMC Acadia has received refreshed looks, the latest technologies, a new off-road AT4 trim and more.
The most apparent changes to the 2020 GMC Acadia are the new grille, new C-shaped LED lights and a new rear fascia with different taillights. All examples of the tough-looking AT4 trim are distinguished by model specific gloss black exterior trim, 17-inch black wheels and all-terrain tires. The full lineup will include the SLE base model, SLT, AT4 and the luxury-focused Denali.
General Motors’ 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6 engines return in the 2020 Acadia, while a new nine-speed automatic replaces the outgoing six-speed auto. A new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine is also offered on SLT and Denali models, which is rated at 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and is also paired with the nine-speed auto.
Some minor interior updates have also been applied including a new electronic gear selector, which has enabled GM to redesign the center console for additional storage space and convenience. There’s also a more user-friendly infotainment system, a different HD rear-view camera and an available wireless charging pad.
Rounding out the changes are some minor suspension refinements for improved ride and handling.
“The 2020 Acadia is stylish, functional and capable with more of the smart convenience and connectivity features that customers rely on every day,” said GMC boss Duncan Aldred. “And with GMC’s signature refinement at its core, the new Acadia advances the brand’s commitment to offering premium vehicles for discerning crossover customers.”
The 2020 GMC Acadia will go on sale this fall with production to continue at GM’s Spring Hill, Tennessee, assembly plant.
GM has not announced full pricing details for the 2020 GMC Acadia, but we’re not expecting any major changes. It’s not yet clear how expensive the Acadia AT4 will be, either. Pricing for the 2019 GMC Acadia starts at $30,195 for the SL base model.
