2023 GMC Acadia Configurator Now Live5
The online configurator tool for the 2023 GMC Acadia has gone live on the premium truck and SUV brand’s website. The web-based tool allows prospective buyers of the crossover to equip the vehicle with different features and options and view a complete pricing summary, somewhat simplifying the process of shopping for a new GM vehicle.
The 2023 GMC Acadia continues with minimal changes from the 2022MY. This will include a revised list of exterior paint options, with the Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K), Midnight Blue Metallic (paint code GLU), and Cayenne Red Tintcoat (paint code GSK) colors getting dropped from the lineup. In their stead, the 2023 model year adds three new hues, including Volcanic Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT), Ultra Blue Metallic (GTR), and Sterling Metallic (GXD). These colors are visible on the 2023 GMC Acadia models pictured in this article.
For 2023, the GMC Acadia continues with two engine options. The GM turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, rated at 228 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 258 pound-feet of torque at 1,500 rpm serves as the base engine, while customers can also select the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 271 pound-feet of torque. Both engines connect to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. The crossover rides on the GM C1 platform.
As we reported previously GMC Acadia is currently built at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee, however production will eventually to the GM Lansing Delta Township plant to make room for the Cadillac Lyriq. Production of the nameplate kicked off in Spring Hill on June 10th, 2022.

I leased a 2017 Acadia Denali for three years. For me the downsized Acadia was fine. It was still roomy and comfortable and served my needs well. So in 2020, I leased another Acadia Denali. I was OK with the push-pull shift selector and really liked the new digital rear view mirror and the addition of heads-up display. Again, a comfortable vehicle that handles well and delivers 26-27 mpg highway with the V6. But when my lease expires next spring I’m not sure I want to lease a 2023 that is identical to what I have been driving for the past 6 years. And with the speculation that the 2024 “redesign” will increase the size of the vehicle, there is little there for me to look forward to. Might be time to look around. I like what the KIA Telluride has to offer.
I did back-to-back comparisons between the Telluride and the Acadia… test drives. I bought the 2022 Acadia Denali AWD with the V6 in Satin Steel Metalic. While the KIA had lots of room, I found the seating was not as comfortable. The Acadia interior was nicer in my opinion, just more pleasing to the eye. And controls were more intuitive. I was not impressed with the exterior color selection for the KIA, while the painted inserts on the 20″ wheels of the Acaia match up with the body paint color.
I will agree the KIA Telluride does offer value for the money though. There is a lot of them on the road.
Just my humble opinion.
When you really look real hard at the Kia Telluride and get past the new fresh design, the SUV is cheaply made. It does not match up to the GM SUVs in their class. Once you get past the bright colors and trims, the GM SUVs are better made. What I am saying, 4 years down the road, there will be no comparison.
This is very true,. I have several friends with Hyundai and Kia experience. Nice shiny packages but many corners cut under the skin.. Rust issues and mechanical issues.
One now is fighting an issue on tire pressure sensors on a Santa Cruze. He went to aftermarket wheels and found to reset the pressure sensor required a trip to the dealer. Now they are still acting up. There is no reason they should not read correctly.
So he is $1000 in on wheels and $400 on service work and still no cure for the TPS units. The dealer say it is the wheel but they are the same size and material as the original wheels just different spokes.
One must recall that if it is cheaper there is a good reason most times.
Another had to have much of the interior replace due to defects and wear.
We are on our second Acadia and love it. The new one I don’t believe will be as as large as the first one. It may be more XT6 large. If it is that is what we may go with if not I do like the smaller Buick Envision and some of their coming models.
As they say with Kia and Hyundai A lot of value at purchase but there is a reason.
Another option is the Cadillac Lyriq. I am not sure I am ready for an EV yet but it is really looking like a great car all the way around.
The Cadillac XT6 is essentially the Acadia in Cadillac dressing… it is the same size as the current GMC Acadia and they are also built at the same plant.
