The 2022 GMC Acadia will come standard with all the equipment that was previously offered in the optional Pro Safety Plus Package, GM Authority can confirm.
The Pro Safety Plus Package (RPO code PED) includes the following General Motors active safety technology (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO UHY)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (RPO UKJ)
- IntelliBeam headlamps (RPO TQ5)
- Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO UD5)
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning (RPO UHX)
- Following Distance Indicator (RPO UE4)
- Forward Collision Alert (RPO UEU)
- Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert (RPO UKC)
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RPO UFG)
Now, with the Pro Safety Plus Package equipment offered as standard, all 2022 GMC Acadia models will feature the equipment listed above. If either the Denali Ultimate Package (RPO PEC) or Denali Technology Package (RPO CWM) are equipped, the Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO UGN) will be replaced with the superior Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO PEC).
GM has applied some other minor changes to the Acadia for the 2022 model year. As we reported previously, the 2022 Acadia will ditch the base SL trim level from its lineup and will also do away with the Red Mahogany Metallic exterior color. The off-road inspired AT4 trim level will also no longer be available with five-passenger seating, though it will still offer a choice between six- and seven-passenger seating layouts. GM has also made the V92 trailering package available to order in conjunction with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine. Previously, the package required the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine to order.
Lastly, the 2022 GMC Acadia has dropped the previously available 2.5L LCV four-cylinder engine from its lineup and will now only offer the 2.0L LSY and 3.6L LGX V6.
The 2022 GMC Acadia will enter production at the GM Spring Hill facility in Tennessee this year.
