The 2021 GMC Acadia receives a few minor changes and updates such as the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, new wheel availability, multiple new package options, along with three new exterior colors – Midnight Blue Metallic, Hunter Metallic, and Cayenne Red Tintcoat. Here’s a first look at the new red hue.
Assigned color code GSK and touch-up paint code WA-252F, Cayenne Red Tintcoat is one of two red exterior finishes available for the 2021 GMC Acadia, with Red Mahogany Metallic being the other option. Cayenne Red is a much brighter hue than the Red Mahogany Metallic color, which is a deeper red. In addition, the Cayenne Red Tintcoat is the only tintcoat option available for the 2021 Acadia. Red Quartz Tintcoat was deleted for the 2021 model year and Cayenne Red appears to be a direct replacement for that exterior color.
In total, there are eight available colors for the 2021 GMC Acadia, which also includes:
- White Frost Tricoat
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Summit White
- Ebony Twilight Metallic
- Hunter Metallic
- Red Mahogany Metallic
- Midnight Blue Metallic
- Cayenne Red Color
The Cayenne Red Tintcoat color is not included in the price of the 2021 GMC Acadia, as it costs an additional $645. It is available in conjunction with all interior color combinations and trim levels except the base SL model.
2021 GMC Acadia Trim Levels:
- SL (1SV)
- SLE (3SA)
- SLT (4SA)
- AT4 (4SB)

2021 GMC Acadia Interior Color Combinations:

To note, Summit White is the only exterior paint color included in the base price of the 2021 GMC Acadia.
As of this writing, dealer inventory of 2021 GMC Acadia is sparse due to the ongoing microchip shortage, which appears to be impacting the GM Spring Hill factory in Tennessee that assembles the Acadia. We recommend checking with your dealer about models coated in the Cayenne Red Tintcoat color option.
