Holden Acadia Technology

The Holden Acadia, the first new GMC vehicle to make the leap to Australia and wear the lion badge, is drawing ever closer to launching. When it arrives, the Acadia is poised to become one of Holden’s most technologically advanced vehicles, from the way it performs to all the tools it employs to keep drivers and passenger safe.

“The level of technology across the range is compelling,” said Mathew Rattray-Wood, Holden General Manager of SUV Marketing. “Whether we are talking safety, convenience, or infotainment, Acadia has the most complete technology package Holden has ever offered.”

Balancing power and efficiency is a V6 engine that utilizes Active Fuel Management, Variable Displacement Oil Pump, and Variable Valve Timing and a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic. The Acadia features standard Traction Select Control, which better allows for driving in adverse conditions with Snow, Sport, and Trailer/Tow Modes for FWD and AWD models and Off-Road mode for AWD models.

The Acadia will also be the first vehicle in the Holden family to incorporate Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition. This technology promotes better efficiency and helps lessen the possibility of getting a speeding ticket by reading information from traffic signs and using it tot automatically adjust the Acadia’s speed.

Additional safety features offered with the Acadia include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Safety Seat Alert, Forward Collision Alert with Head-Up Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Automatic High Beam Assist.

The Holden Acadia is built alongside its GMC counterpart at General Motors’ Spring Hill factory in Tennessee.
