The 2024 GMC Acadia is just over the horizon, expected to debut an all-new third generation for the crossover nameplate. As is tradition for a generational overhaul, the 2024 GMC Acadia will likely usher in a wealth of updates and changes compared to the preceding 2023 model year. Now, GM Authority has uncovered that the 2024 GMC Acadia will be offered in four trim levels at launch.
The four 2024 GMC Acadia trim levels available at launch will include the range-topping Denali, as well as the off-road-oriented AT4. The two remaining trims will include an as-of-yet-unnamed base-model trim, as well as a mid-range variant. As for possible names for the base model and mid-range model, the two most obvious candidates would be SLE and SLT, but GMC may still settle on different names. Elevation is another possible option here. To note, the GMC Canyon pickup and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup both offer Elevation variants as standalone trim levels, while the GMC Terrain and GMC Acadia currently offer the Elevation as a package.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, the next-generation GMC Acadia may be unveiled at the 2023 Detroit Auto Show. GMC will hold a press conference on Wednesday, September 13th, at which time The General may pull the covers on the all-new 2024 GMC Acadia.
As for expectations, the 2024 GMC Acadia will be physically larger than the current second-gen model, growing from a mid-sizer to a full-size crossover. The GMC Acadia initially debuted as a full-sizer in conjunction with the first generation, which launched for the 2007 model year, eventually shrinking to a midsize model for the second generation.
The cabin space will be overhauled as well, and will likely offer the GM Super Cruise driver assist system.
Under the hood, the 2024 GMC Acadia is expected to cradle the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, with output expected to be around 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. The long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform will provide the bones.
