Praise from Edmunds
According to Edmunds, the 2020 Acadia is a prime example of a midcycle refresh that’s done right. Updates for this model include new powertrains, a revamped design, and more tech features. There’s also a rugged AT4 trim level to cater to outdoor enthusiasts. These are welcome modifications considering that it’s been a few years since 2017 when GMC last refreshed the Acadia.
For starters, the 2020 Acadia offers a new engine option: a turbocharged four-cylinder. It provides a happy medium between the base engine’s fuel efficiency and V6 engine’s potency, so you can get the best of both worlds.
Subtle style tweaks include a new grille, bumpers, and LED headlights on the outside. Cabin updates include a refreshed center console that has more storage space on the inside.
GMC now offers the Acadia in an AT4 trim. It sports 17-inch Gloss-Black wheels, all-terrain tires, and a black chrome grille for a modern and athletic aesthetic. Heated power-adjustable mirrors pair with a hands-free programmable power liftgate for added convenience.
