Models & Trim Levels

Like all second-generation units of the GMC Acadia, the 2019 Acadia continues to ride on the GM C1 platform (or “Chi”) shared with the following vehicles:
- 2017 and newer Cadillac XT5 (first generation)
We expect that the rumored future Chevy Blazer will ride on the same platform, expected for the 2019 model year. See more on the 2019 Chevy Blazer.
A long-wheelbase version of the C1 platform is used to underpin the following vehicles:
- 2018 and newer Chevrolet Traverse (second generation)
- 2018 and newer Buick Enclave (second generation)
We also expect that the 2019 Cadillac XT6 will ride on the same long-wheelbase version of the C1 architecture.
The 2019 GMC Acadia is assembled by GM USA at the GM Spring Hill factory in Tennessee.
We expect the 2019 GMC Acadia to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch on or before the third quarter of calendar year 2018.
We expect that the current, second-generation GMC Acadia will remain in production for at least the 2019, 2020, and 2021 model years, with a refresh arriving for the 2020 model year. An all-new, future GMC Acadia will launch in the vicinity of the 2023 model year.
