General Motors is cooking up a brand-new third generation for the GMC Acadia in conjunction with the 2024 model year, and as expected, it’ll bring with it a long list of updates and changes. Naturally, GM Authority spy photographers have captured the overhauled 2024 GMC Acadia testing on public roads as a camo-clad prototype, and although we’ve picked apart the images to report on nearly all of the important features, there’s still one odd-looking little piece left untouched. Now, we’re shining a light on this odd little thing to ask – what the heck is it?
The odd little thing in question is a small square bit of black-and-white camo seen covering a portion of each window on the 2024 GMC Acadia prototypes spied thus far. For those readers who may be unaware, the last two 2024 GMC Acadia prototypes that GM Authority has covered thus far each presents a small square section of camo in the bottom left-hand corner, including on the windshield, the exposed side windows, and even the rear glass.
Naturally, this leads us to question what GM might be hiding under there. Perhaps it’s some sort of badging, such as a GM logo or GMC logo, both of which would need to be covered up prior to sending a 2024 GMC Acadia prototype out in the wild. At this point, though, it’s hard to say exactly what’s going on here.
As a reminder, the 2024 GMC Acadia will be physically larger than the current second-gen model, with the upcoming third-gen offered as a full-size model, similar to the first-generation GMC Acadia. The 2024 GMC Acadia will also equip a new engine, specifically the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline unit, which is expected to dole out roughly 300 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
