Exactly one year after presenting the refreshed crossover for the Mexican market in October 2019, General Motors has just introduced the 2021 GMC Acadia lineup in Mexico. The fifth model year of the second-generation Acadia arrives in the Latin American country with the new Black Edition that will serve as the entry-level variant of GMC’s midsize crossover in Mexico.
As such, the 2021 GMC Acadia Black Edition complements the existing top-end AT4 and Denali trims, offering a more affordable option with a new blacked-out exterior treatment for the Mexican market. In fact, this trim level picks up the formula of the previous Acadia Black Edition introduced in the U.S. market a few years ago, which was recently replaced by the new optional Elevation Edition package.
“In pursuing the constant satisfaction of our customers, we are excited to introduce the GMC Acadia Black Edition for the first time, which integrates the brand’s characteristic attributes of technology, luxury and sportsmanship,” said Marketing Manager for GMC at GM Mexico, Yammil Guaida, in a statement. “Black Edition will be the entry version of our flagship SUV. We are confident that its comprehensive equipment list will win over new customers and strengthen Acadia’s position in Mexico,” he added.
Newly introduced in Mexico, the 2021 GMC Acadia Black Edition incorporates a unique exterior design that stands out for its bold and sinister appearance. Unlike the 2021 Acadia Elevation Edition sold in the United States, the Acadia Black Edition not only features a blacked-out finish on the grille, moldings and roof bars, but is the first model in GMC history to come as standard with a black logo.
Inside, the 2021 Acadia Black Edition features black interior trim as well as premium cloth seats with manual tilt in the second and third rows. With the sole exception of the front-wheel drive, the base Acadia’s powertrain remains the same as in the other versions, including the 3.6L LGX V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2021 GMC Acadia range is now available from the brand’s dealer network in Mexico, offering enhanced connectivity thanks to GMC’s latest infotainment system, which now includes wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. The three available trim levels feature a total of seven exterior colors and four interior combinations, with the following starting prices:
- 2021 Acadia Black Edition: 879,900 MXN (about $41,320 USD at the current exchange rate)
- 2021 Acadia AT4: 979,900 MXN ($46,020 USD)
- 2021 Acadia Denali: 1,049,900 MXN ($49,310 USD)
