The 2022 GMC Acadia Denali will be available with a new Black Diamond Edition Package, GM Authority can confirm.
The Black Diamond Edition Package is tagged with RPO code RFN and includes 20-inch painted wheels with an After Midnight finish (RPO QH8). This package can only be applied to 2022 GMC Acadia Denali models equipped with the 3.6L LGX V6 engine and finished in the Ebony Twilight Metallic exterior color. A photo of a 2022 GMC Acadia with these wheels installed is not yet available, while pricing has yet to be announced.
In order to choose the Black Diamond Edition Package, the Denali Ultimate Package (RPO PEC) must also be selected. This adds the following features to the Acadia Denali trim level:
- (UV2) HD Surround Vision
- (KSG) Adaptive Cruise Control
- (UGN) Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking
- (DRZ) Rear Camera Mirror
- (CWA) Rear Camera Mirror Washer
- (C3U) Dual SkyScape 2-panel power sunroof
- (F45) Adaptive Ride Control (with AWD only)
- (V92) Trailering Package
GMC also introduced a Black Diamond Edition Package on the 2021 GMC Sierra HD. Unlike the Acadia version, this equipment package adds quite a bit of content to the GMC Sierra HD, including Power-retractable assist steps with LED perimeter lighting, premium front and rear floor liners with a removable carpet insert and 20-inch high gloss Black painted aluminum wheels, among more.
General Motors has introduced minor changes on the 2022 GMC Acadia. The premium crossover has done away with the available naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV four-cylinder engine, while the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine will no longer be available with the SLE trim level. The base SL trim level has also been dropped, while the AT4 will no longer be available in a five-passenger seating layout. Lastly, the Red Mahogany Metallic paint will no longer be offered.
The 2022 GMC Acadia represents the sixth model year of the second-generation crossover, following a mid-cycle refresh that was first introduced for the 2020 model year. The GMC Acadia rides on the regular wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform, which it shares with the Cadillac XT5. Production takes place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee alongside the XT5.
