The forthcoming 2022 GMC Acadia, one of the better-looking SUVs, is getting a redesign for the following year. This wonderful family-friendly crossover is well-known for its small appearance and great three-row cabin layout. The current-generation Acadia debuted in 2017, and it was somewhat smaller and lighter than the previous model.
If you didn’t already know, this model has the same chassis and suspension as Cadillac’s luxury CT6 sedan. However, based on what we’ve heard, the new model will retain the same dimensions while undergoing major mechanical improvements that will result in improved fuel efficiency. As before, you can choose between four-cylinder, turbo-four, and potent V6 engine options.
2022 Acadia Redesign
The 2022 GMC Acadia appears more modern and handsome than many of the segment’s SUVs. The new 2022MY will continue to offer the same stuff, however, the new model is definitely more attractive than the previous one. This SUV is distinguished by its huge chromed grille, wider wheel arches and narrow LED headlamps.
Overall, the Acadia appears robust, and we prefer its design language over that of its corporate cousin, the Chevy Traverse. As previously stated, the Acadia has the same stiff chassis and suspension as Cadillac’s CT6 sedan. However, the Denali is the most popular trim level because, in addition to a superior aesthetic, it has shock absorbers, which provide a pleasant ride and superb handling.
We may anticipate the 2022 GMC Acadia to have the same upright interior as before, but with additional soft-touch materials. The Acadia is a spacious SUV with three rows of seats that can accommodate adults as well. It also includes an improved Smart Slide technology for better access to the 50/50 third row. Because of this, folding down the third seat bench creates 12.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity.
Additionally, by folding the second and third benches, this may be increased to a workable 79.0-cubic-foot maximum. The AT4 is an off-road trim that comes standard as a 5-seater but may optionally be purchased with either six or seven seats. As for the high-tech features, the Acadia will most likely provide the same options as its predecessor. That means the entry-level GMC Acadia SL will come standard with an 8-inch touchscreen, a tri-zone auto climate control, keyless ignition, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Three Powertrain Options
The forthcoming 2022 GMC Acadia will deploy the very same three engines as its predecessor. However, according to several rumors, all three engines will receive some of the technology that will increase fuel efficiency by 20%. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine in the GMC Acadia SL and SLE trims produces 194 hp and 190 lb-ft of torque.
The following engine is more powerful and it is a 2.0-liter turbo-four available in SLT level. This engine develops 230 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque. The last and most powerful option is a 3.6-liter V6 with 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission comes as standard, while the AWD setup will be optional once again.
2022 GMC Acadia Price, Release Date
New-gen 2022 GMC Acadia will now cost slightly above $30,000. The sales will begin later in 2021 and the range-topping Denali trim will cost you around $50,000.
