2017 GMC Acadia Limited to Wear $43,850 Price Tag
Consumers who are looking to purchase a new SUV or crossover this summer can choose from three very different GMC Acadia models.
While the 2016 version of the Acadia offered three rows of seating and is still on sale at GMC dealerships, the redesigned 2017 model weighs approximately 700 pounds less than its predecessor and only offers seating for five people. However, this redesign hasn’t stopped GM from offering a full-size version of the Acadia for the 2017 model year, which will be called the Acadia Limited.
The 2017 Acadia Limited midsize SUV will carry a starting MSRP of $43,850, not counting the destination fee. This price tag is approximately $15,000 higher than the starting MSRP of the redesigned 2017 Acadia crossover, which starts at $29,995.
By offering both Acadia models for 2017, GMC will be able cover more ground in the hot-selling SUV/crossover vehicle segment.
The 2017 GMC Acadia Limited will come equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 281 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. That motor will be paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, while consumers have the choice between standard front-wheel drive and the available all-wheel drive system.
LED taillights, 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, and standard HID projector-beam headlamps with LED daytime running lamps highlight the exterior of the 2017 GMC Acadia Limited, while the inside offers Color Touch Navigation with IntelliLink, as well as a rear vision camera.
For those shoppers looking for a newer SUV that offers three rows of seating, GM is expected to introduce the second-generation Chevy Traverse and second-gen Buick Enclave at some point next year.
