Earlier this month, GM Authority was first to report that GMC’s 2021 Acadia will gain a new Elevation Edition package. And now, we have obtained the very first photos of the 2021 GMC Acadia Elevation Edition, which adds dark styling details to Big Red’s premium three-row crossover for a unique and sinister appearance.
Up front, the 2021 GMC Acadia Elevation Edition adds a black grille insert and grille surround, black front fascia accents, and black headlamp details.
The profile shows black mirror caps and roof rails, along with the 20-inch Machined Aluminum Wheels with Black Accents. Also notice the black exterior model and trim badging (Acadia, SLE/SLT) on the lower section of the front doors (as well as on the liftgate, not shown here).
It’s worth noting that the front and rear GMC logos are finished in the standard red hue, but a set of black GMC logos is available for $220.
Out back, the 2021 GMC Acadia Elevation Edition brings black rear fascia accents along with black taillamp details to complete the blacked-out look.
The Elevation Edition package will be available on SLE and SLT trims and in conjunction with seven exterior colors:
- White Frost Tricoat
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Summit White
- Ebony Twilight Metallic
- Red Mahogany Metallic
- Midnight Blue Metallic
- Cayenne Red Tintcoat
GM Authority has learned that the package will be priced at $1,495 on both the SLE and SLT trims.
The package will be available on 2021 GMC Acadia models that go into production this fall. It’s worth noting that it essentially replaces the Acadia Black Edition, which was introduced for the 2019 Acadia and dropped for the 2020 Acadia refresh.
Consumer demand for less chrome and more body-color or black accents on their vehicles is driving the black-out trend, and the Acadia Elevation answers the call. We’ll have more on the 2021 GMC Acadia soon, so be sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more GMC Acadia news, GMC news and around-the-clock GM news coverage.
