2024 GMC Acadia Spied With First Interior Shots20
GM is gearing up to release a fresh third generation for the GMC Acadia crossover with the debut of the 2024 model year, and now, GM Authority has captured the first spy photos of the upcoming 2024 GMC Acadia interior.
One of the most important bits to pick out from these new spy photos is the GM Super Cruise strip along the upper rim of the steering wheel, confirming an earlier report in which GM Authority exclusively covered that the 2024 GMC Acadia would indeed offer the semi-autonomous driver assist system. We also see a GM Super Cruise sensor located on the steering column that follows the driver’s attention to ensure they are ready to retake the steering wheel, if needed.
The rest of the steering wheel includes a series of hard buttons mounted at thumb’s length in the outer spokes, with silver trim lining the outer edges.
Also of note is the 2024 GMC Acadia’s redesigned center stack, which is covered with mesh to obscure the primary infotainment screen. However, below the infotainment screen, we spot a pair of horizontally oriented vents trimmed in silver. Cupholders are once again located forward on the central tunnel.
This particular 2024 GMC Acadia prototype is also running an interesting new wheel design.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, the 2024 GMC Acadia is expected to grow considerably with regard to exterior dimensions, dropping in as a full-size three-row crossover, as compared to the midsize model offered currently. As a reminder, the GMC Acadia was originally offered as a full-size three-row crossover when it was first introduced for the 2007 model year, but was later downsized to a midsize model with the second generation for the 2017 model year. The 2024 GMC Acadia is expected to ride on a modified version of the GM C1 platform.
As for the greasy bits under the hood, the 2024 GMC Acadia could offer a number of different engines, including the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine, the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, or the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine. Production will kick off next year at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.

Is the 3.6 venturing on? I would think they would switch to the 2.7, a much better all around match for this set up and weight. I thought they were starting to wind down the NA 3.6 and NA motors in general?
3.6 engine is so outdated. It would be better if they offered Turbo or hybrid options with more power.
FWD crap. Make it a real RWD platform to compete with the Grand Cherokee and then you might have a decent offering.
Get AWD and stop being a cry baby.
My AWD in performance mode is great. I seldom drive in FWD.m
Haven’t even seen it yet. Have you not looked at all the fan fare around the Aviator/Explorer going RWD from a few purists and how that was going to be the end of the other FWD offerings? Well well well the FWD based GM CUV’s eat their lunch except in acceleration. The FWD Cadillac sells as well as the Aviator. News flash, in a CUV market no one cars what wheel drive they are… These vehicles should be great and very competitive. Just give it the 2.7 with all that torque and it should be a good ride for families with tons of room. Heck, they can probably extended the interior a little more with a thinner and more powerful engine in there.
Next time just keep your irrelevant comments to your self, these aren’t performance CUV’s, no one cares which wheels are driven predominantly. All the care about is that is has AWD in inclement weather.
Ford can’t make vehicles in volume if their company depended on it. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee five passenger and seven passenger absolutely smokes everyone else in the segment and its not even close.
I think the market has spoken, and GM has once again swung and missed.
I disagree. GM is missing out on performance SUVs/Crossovers. Just make one with under 5 seconds 0-60 time and collect money.
The performance Fords are sold in very limited volume and cost as much as a Tahoe. Not a big mover.
Like em or not the public is brain washed into the FWD AWD thing. That is what sells.
To be honest I would rather have RWD but AWD works just fine.
What are you talking about the public buys FWD / AWD?
For that segment (E / F crossover) – Grand Cherokee is king and it’s not even close.
For more price sensitive segments C / D crossover) – sure, but that’s because there is no RWD crossover offering.
Rumor has it the next Cherokee in 2024 is RWD.
Is it brainwashing? Or, is it what works?
Oh good it will have a steering wheel.
I expect the 3.6 to die soon.
Please, stop with these early reports if you already know the thing.
It’s just the same thing: you guys do receive a report and the next day you have the pictures to prove it. Cmon
Actually, there is a very good reason for moving to RWD. You speak of the 2.7L L3B, but they would have to gut the torque so as to not break traction with FWD. Either that or the 2.7L will need full-time, always-on AWD to not be spinning tires. That’s not the end of the world, but hurts mileage and limits consumer choice for on-demand. Plus, for towing performance, having the main driveline be RWD would be helpful.
Errrrr…. is it me or are the interior pics kind of useless? So, now we know there’s a steering wheel?? Or am I missing something
The wheel has buttons..and some chrome bits. Mind blowing. Maybe a horn? That may be part of an options package for $3500.00 though.
Does it still have a push button transmission? How exciting.
These new crossovers look more and more like station wagons with each new refresh. Don’t get me wrong I love old school wagons, they are very cool.
Umm… that’s exactly what these vehicles are and always have been — modern day station wagons with a lift and a little bit more capability. It’s the modern day jack of all trades.
My 2014 Acadia is literally registered as a “station wagon” in Michigan.
I was at the GMC/Buick dealer’s meeting in Vegas earlier this year and we got to see the new Acadia, the best way I can describe it is a baby Yukon. They did a great job of designing it, a boxy 4Runner look…the interior center stack is like the Sierra EV, massive screen. Sitting on the larger platform again like the Enclave (we got to view that as well and it’s amazing). Both the Enclave and Acadia now look like SUVs and will ditch the rounded look.
