GM will debut an all-new third generation for the GMC Acadia with the upcoming 2024 model year, introducing a wealth of updates and changes over the preceding 2023 model year. These will include new styling inside and out, new tech features, a new powertrain, and more. Now, GM Authority is detailing everything we know and expect from the next-gen 2024 GMC Acadia with the following breakdown.
The 2024 GMC Acadia is not expected to introduce any changes to the existing trim level lineup. The current GMC Acadia lineup includes SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali.
The third-generation 2024 GMC Acadia will be larger than the current second-generation model, returning the Acadia nameplate to full-size dimensions similar to those of the first-generation model.
The next-gen model will feature new styling as well, with a traditional utility vehicle roofline and greenhouse, as well as an upright front fascia, plus quad exhaust tips in the rear.
The 2024 GMC Acadia will debut a completely overhauled interior with a new steering wheel, new colors, and new materials. The cabin will offer more space and improved ergonomics compared to the current model, as well as new infotainment goodies and a new gauge cluster, with a fully digital cluster offered higher in the lineup. There will be new safety and convenience tech as well, including the GM Super Cruise system.
Under the hood, the 2024 GMC Acadia will cradle a new powerplant, specifically the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, as GM Authority was the first to report. Estimated output is expected to be 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, which will be routed through the GM eight-speed automatic transmission, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive available to put the power to the pavement.
The next-gen crossover will ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform known as C1-2 platform, and will also incorporate the Global B electrical architecture.
The next-gen 2024 GMC Acadia will be available in North America, as well as select export markets.
Production will take place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan, moving from the GM Spring Hill plant where the second-generation model was produced. Production of the 2024 GMC Acadia is expected to begin in January of 2024.
