While the Acadia generally good for sales in the mid-to-high four-figure range, a total of 10,498 Acadias were delivered in May. This marks the first time that the Acadia has crossed the five-figure sales threshold since March 2013 and only the third time it has accomplished the feat in five-and-a-half years.
