The Upgraded 2017 GMC Acadia Is More Agile

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

2017 GMC Acadia

The upgraded #2017Acadia is more managable and fun to drive than previous models. Our Cardinale GMC sales team invites you to come to our Seaside dealership for a test drive!  In addition to its new-found agility, the 2017 Acadia can also stop more quickly, is more stable and accelerates more quickly, thanks to its shorter wheelbase and lighter weight. Its electrically assisted steering is more responsive and maneuverable. The new sound suppression system keeps road and wind noise to a minimum, providing an excellent overall ride quality that’s great for around-town driving, as well as for long trips.

Seating and Storage
No matter what the configuration, the 2017 Acadia features lots of cargo space. Convenient underfloor storage provides cargo space for smaller items. The 2017 Acadia offers optional comfortable second-row captain’s chairs that recline and slide to replace the standard second row bench seat.

It’s Easy to Add Off-Road Capability

It’s easy to add off-road capability on higher trim levels. The optional 310-hp 3.6-liter V-6 engine comes standard on All Terrain and Denali trims and can be chosen as an option on the SLE and SLT. The 310-hp 3.6 liter V-6 engine is the Acadia’s most powerful engine. However, because of the lighter weight of the 2017 Acadia, even the standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder performs well and in addition, gets an impressive 30 mpg on the highway.
