GMC Acadia All Terrain
The GMC Acadia All Terrain was an off-road package available for the crossover, and was the precursor to the Acadia AT4 trim level.
The GMC Acadia All-Terrain mid-size crossover was “aimed at helping adventurous and thrill-seeking drivers stray from the beaten path while remaining confident and connected”. The family-friendly SUV provided premium amenities and professional-grade capability that delivered both on-road and off-road experiences.

When the Acadia All Terrain package debuted for the 2017 model year, matching distinctive exterior design elements with enhanced off-road-driving capability, it was only available with the SLT-1 trim level. As such, the GMC Acadia All Terrain offered the following equipment:
- Body-color grille surround
- Black chrome trim
- Unique 20-inch x 8-inch aluminum wheels (SN9)
- Black roof rails (V59)
- Exclusive five-passenger seating (ABD)
- Rear air vents
- Dynamic All Terrain interior accents
- Covered storage bins in the rear cargo floor in place of a third-row seat
- Rear air vents (RAE)
- Cargo Management System (N30)
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls (N30)
- Active Twin Clutch AWD system (G99)
- Features All Terrain mode instead of Off Road mode
Additionally, the model was available with five-, six- and seven-passenger seating configurations, and had a towing capacity of up to two tons.
GMC prepared the Acadia All Terrain for all weather and road conditions. The Traction Select dial adjusted a variety of its systems – including traction control, throttle mapping, shift points, and more – for an optimal drive experience. Settings on the Traction Select knob dial included:
- Two-Wheel Drive: Shifts Acadia All-Terrain’s standard all-wheel-drive system into two-wheel drive for optimizing efficiency during normal conditions.
- All-Wheel Drive: Allows Acadia All-Terrain’s all-wheel-drive system to send power to rear wheels when slippage is detected in order to maximize traction. This mode is designed for use in normal driving situations on paved roads that are covered with water, snow, or ice.
- All Terrain Mode: Optimizes traction in off-road conditions (gravel, sand, mud) at speeds under 50 mph, and will also engage all-wheel drive.
- Sport Mode: Gives the vehicle a sportier handling feel and ride, as well as improved acceleration response.
Trailer/Tow– Changes shift points and engages all-wheel-drive (if equipped) to improve traction and acceleration when trailering.
Notably, availability of the All Terrain package would eventually extend to Acadia SLE models. An All Terrain Cargo Package was also offered and required the vehicle to be equipped with the All Terrain package. The All Terrain Cargo package included:
- Floor-mounted cargo net (WH6)
- Retractable cargo shade (VRS)
- Vertical cargo net (W2D)
For the 2020 model year (see complete 2020 GMC Acadia details), the All Terrain sub-brand was replaced by the AT4 nameplate, with the Acadia AT4 entering the lineup (see complete GMC Acadia AT4 details).
