Last week, we told you that the GMC Acadia AT4 offers two sets of wheel and tire packages. The first (and standard) set includes the 17-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels wrapped in All-Terrain rubber, while the second (and optional) set includes the 20-inch Machined Aluminum wheels with Dark Accents wrapped in all-season tires. Interestingly, one of these sets is selling faster than the other.
|2020 Acadia AT4 – Standard||17-inch Gloss Black aluminum (Q7D)||All-Terrain (5GV)|
|2020 Acadia AT4 – Optional||20-inch machined aluminum with dark accents (SSZ)||All-Season (QNU)|
GMC Acadia AT4 units equipped standard 17-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with All-Terrain tires are turning (selling) 32 percent faster than the 20-inchers with All-Season rubber, GM Authority has learned from internal documents.
The figures indicate that consumers prefer the smaller wheels with the more rugged tires package for the ruggedized Acadia AT4.
The AT4 is a new trim level for the GMC Acadia that features bold styling cues, darkened finishes including a black chrome-accented grille, and a rugged, off-road-inspired design. It launched for the 2020 model year refresh, where it replaced the All Terrain trim.
The model is powered as standard by the atmospheric 3.6L V6 LGX engine rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. Shifting duty is handled by GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission, and a twin-clutch AWD system puts down the power. The Acadia rides on the regular wheelbase variant of GM’s C1 platform, with production taking place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee. Engine options include the atmospheric 2.5L I4 LCV, the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, and the atmospheric 3.6L V6 LGX.
Features include a hands-free power liftgate with GMC logo projection, which is standard on SLT, AT4 and Denali, and a High Definition Rear Vision Camera, which is standard on SLT, AT4 and Denali, and available on SLE.
