Rumored 2024 GMC Acadia Expectations vs. What We Know

GMC Acadia LOGO - 2024 New Model

General Motors will not allow for competitors to get too far ahead in the SUV production race. This is the primary reason they are pushing hard to launch the new Acadia in 2024 MY. They had a model released for this model year, and the new one is a clear sign that they’re ready for a serious push. What we should expect and what we know are two different things. Let’s delve into the depths that the new 2024 Acadia represents in the SUV domain.

Note: GMC still hasn’t made the release of this model official. What you’ll read is the information gathered from the web from reputable automotive magazines that are close to the situation.

Exterior Design

2024 GMC Acadia AT4While the new GMC Acadia will arrive with plenty of changes some things will remain the same. Sources close to GMC, such as gmauthority.com claim that the trim levels we have today will remain identical. So, you can count on SLE, SLT, AT4, and good old Denali.

While the nomenclature will remain the same plenty of this will change. The same source claims that the new Acadia will grow in size. What this means is that they’re taking a step back and taking a few pages from the book that belong to the original model. What’s noticeable from the spy photos we have linked above is that the front fascia will be redesigned, together with the roofline and the exhaust pipes system.

How About Inside the Vehicle?

There are a few photos of the interior design of the new GMC Acadia thanks to the courtesy of motor1.com. Unfortunately, despite the big effort of their photographers, the interior design remains a mystery due to the heavy covers it features even on the inside. What can be seen from the get-go is the fact that it is going to be a fully new design with probably a new and technologically improved infotainment system.

The first thing you’ll notice is the new steering wheel with new color patterns. As we mentioned before the new model will be larger which means that you will get more space on the inside and in terms of cargo space.

Platform & Powertrain

In the department of the platform, not much will change according to GMAuthority. GMC invested a lot in their current lineup and the so-called C1-2 platform should do the trick for the new Acadia. It will feature their Global B electrical architecture and that combo should be sufficient for all fans of this vehicle.

The same source also claims that this SUV will receive a significant change in terms of powertrain. 2024 MY Acadia is expected to feature a turbocharged 2.5-liter I4 LKO gasoline mill powered by 315 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. When you pair it with their wight-speed automatic transmission you get quite a powerful combo regardless of the front-wheel or all-wheel setup.

While gmauthority.com is certain in their information regarding the new powertrain, motor1.com clamors that the field of engines remains a secret and that for them a surprise would be the inclusion of a 2.7-liter four-cylinder powerplant featured in their Canyon models.

When Will it Arrive?

A source we have, and those we mention above in the article remain certain that this vehicle is coming out as 2024 MY. What remains unclear will it arrive during this year? Spy photos have been popping out regularly since last year. The work is underway, and we certainly hope that GM is preparing a massive surprise before the new year.
