2016 GMC Acadia

What’s New?

The Acadia makes 2 main changes for 2016. There is a modern base-level SL trim, along with the revised version of GM’s OnStar system which now includes 4G LTE WiFi capacity.

Exterior Features

Acadia features a more powerful, rectangular grille than its Traverse / Enclave mates, for a more truck-style look. Even though its profile is incredibly straightforward and even boxy in shape, crisp body lines of Acadia have aged rather elegantly, in relation to other crossover SUVs. Bland and less anonymous than the Traverse, it is tougher, and more macho nature than the Buick’s curvier Enclave. A small rear spoiler and LED daytime running lights are installed. Upper trims possess a power liftgate. Denali stands out for its distinct headlights, chromed-mesh grille, and 18-inch to 20-inch wheels.

Interior Features

All Acadias have 3-row seating for either 7 or 8 occupants. In the second row, either a three-person bench or a pair of captain’s chairs may be installed. Although the tight, and pleasantly silent cabin is practical in nature, it is refined and classy. Soft-touch materials are also used, and the soft leather upholstery fitted in the upper-trim models is accented by the French stitching, with red ambient lighting. Seats are extraordinarily comfortable, although the floor sits a bit greater than in some same vehicles.


Most essential is the addition of 4G LTE connectivity. It enables passengers to appreciate a powerful Wi-Fi hotspot, but the benefits do not end there.

Engine/ Fuel Efficiency

The GMC Acadia is readily available with all-wheel drive or front-drive. Driven by the 3.6-liter V6, the Acadia has 270 lb-ft of torque and 288hp. Your only choice on a transmission though is the six-speed automatic. Gas mileage is rated at 24 MPG highway and 17 MPG city with front-wheel drive, or 16 MPG city/23 MPG highway with all-wheel drive.

Safety is vital in a family vehicle. The Acadia’s safety equipment includes stability control, an anti-lock braking system, traction control and 6 standard airbags too. The modern front-center airbag even creates a cushion between the front passenger and driver. It’s standard on all but the base Acadia SLE and SL models. Rear cross-traffic alert and Blind spot monitoring are readily available too on the majority of the Acadia lineup.
