General Motors just unveiled the all-new 2024 GMC Acadia yesterday at the 2023 North American International Auto Show, pulling the sheets on the crossover’s latest third generation. As expected, the 2024 GMC Acadia introduces a wealth of updates and changes over the preceding 2023 model year, including larger dimensions, more tech, and a new turbocharged engine. Critically, the new Acadia will be available in four specific trim levels, as GM Authority is detailing right here.
The 2024 GMC Acadia’s four trim levels include the base-level Elevation, the mid-range Elevation Premium, the off-road-oriented AT4, and finally, the range-topping Denali. Official pricing details for these four trims are still forthcoming, however, GM Authority has highlighted some of the big-ticket items equipped as standard and offered as optional for all four trims in the table below:

Compared to the preceding 2023 model year, the 2024 GMC Acadia is considerably larger, with a wheelbase that’s 8.4 inches longer, an overall length that’s 10.6 inches longer, and an overall height that’s 3.2 inches taller. These larger exterior dimensions result in more space inside the cabin, including 80 percent more cargo room behind the third row.
Speaking of the cabin, the interior layout was totally overhauled for the third-gen, and now features a massive 15-inch Premium GMC Infotainment System screen, equipped as standard across the range. The 15-inch center screen pairs with an 11-inch Driver Information Center, also equipped as standard on all four trim levels, while an 8-inch Head-up Display is available on Elevation Premium and AT4 trims, and standard on Denali.
As for the bits under the skin, the 2024 GMC Acadia is equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, rated at 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque. Output is directed through the GM eight-speed automatic transmission, with all-wheel drive offered as optional on Elevation, Elevation Premium, and Denali. AT4 trims are equipped with a unique Active Torque Control all-wheel-drive system as standard.
The 2024 GMC Acadia will be produced at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant, and is set to launch early next year.
