The Light Stone Metallic (color code G5D) exterior paint color is no longer available to order on the 2023 GMC Acadia crossover, GM Authority has learned. The color will be built out after the week of March 6th, 2023.
Buyers of the 2023 GMC Acadia could choose Light Stone Metallic as the paint option on any of the crossover’s trim levels. However, it could not be combined with the Elevation Edition package (RPO code WBP) offered as an option on SLE and SLT trim levels.
Light Stone Metallic was priced at an extra $495 for all trims and could be paired with any of the three interior colorways of the 2023 GMC Acadia:
- Cocoa/Light Ash Gray
- Dark Galvanized/Light Shale
- Jet Black
After becoming unavailable on the 2023 GMC Acadia, it’s currently unknown if Light Stone Metallic will return for the upcoming 2024 model year. The 2024 GMC Acadia introduces an all-new generation of the Acadia nameplate and has a start of regular production (SORP) scheduled for January of the 2024 calendar year.
The 2024 GMC Acadia is one of three GM crossovers to introduce a new generation during the next couple of years. Sources have informed GM Authority that the Chevy Traverse will launch first, followed by the GMC Acadia, and ending with the Buick Enclave..
The third generation of the GMC Acadia launching with the 2024 model year will be a full-size crossover, increasing its size compared to the current second-generation vehicle. It will be built on a modified version of the GM C1 platform, or C1-2. The 2024 Acadia will feature an overhauled exterior and interior, plus new technology like the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system.
The 2023 GMC Acadia is produced at the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee alongside the Cadillac XT5 and XT6 that shared the Light Stone Metallic paint color under a different name. The next-generation 2024 model year will see production moved to the Lansing Delta Township plant instead.
