The 2023 GMC Acadia is offered as the seventh model year of the second-generation crossover nameplate, introducing a few changes and updates before the debut of the third-gen Acadia for the 2024 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when the start of regular production will begin for the 2023 GMC Acadia.
According to GM Authority sources, the start of regular production for the 2023 GMC Acadia is slated to kick off on June 10th, 2022. Production will once again take place at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2023 GMC Acadia introduces a revised list of exterior paint options, deleting Satin Steel Metallic (paint code G9K), Midnight Blue Metallic (paint code GLU), and Cayenne Red Tintcoat (paint code GSK) from the lineup. In their stead, the 2023 model year adds three new hues, including Volcanic Red Tintcoat (paint ode GNT), Ultra Blue Metallic (GTR), and Sterling Metallic (GXD). Each of the three new paint options will be offered across the trim level lineup, available for an extra $495.
For now, however, the 2023 GMC Acadia is available with two engine options, starting with the 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. 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.
To note, the atmospheric 2.5L I4 LCV gasoline engine, which is rated at 193 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and 188 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 rpm, was deleted for the 2022 model year.
Under the skin, the GMC Acadia rides the GM C1 platform.
