2020 GMC Acadia is Bolder, Forward-looking, and Versatile
The 2020 GMC Acadia is here with the aggressive exterior styling, enhanced interior design, and modern tech. The midsize SUV stands apart in its segment for its unique design (refined inside and out), elevated interior appointments, first Acadia AT4 trim level, modern tech, and connectivity features, and refined driving experience.
Acadia has always been an athletic SUV but the 2020 model is bolder with a more powerful stance and precision-crafted itemizing. Its hood flows into a wide, tall, aggressive grille, which carefully joins with both the front bumper fascia and headlamps in an orderly way.
The handsome headlamp layout features LED lighting technology on all models. It also integrates GMC’s unique C-shaped signature lighting elements to make the SUV more identifiable.
On the inside, the 2020 GMC Acadia becomes more Avant-grade owing to the premium, soft-touch materials. Moreover, with the new Electronic Precision Shift controls for the nine-speed transmission, the center console now gets additional storage space. It can even hold a tablet or a small bag.
Those looking for a more rugged variant can now opt for the new Acadia AT4. It encompasses a range of unique exterior elements such as a special grille style with a black chrome finish, gloss black roof rails, black wing mirror caps, and a black chrome tail lamp accent panel. The 17-inch wheels finished in black chrome are accessible for this trim only. It gets standard all-terrain tires whereas the 20-inch wheels/tires are optional.
The same rugged theme continues inside the AT4 featuring dark chrome interior accents, and exclusive seating. Buyers can even opt for Jet Black/Kalahari leather-appointed seating trims.
The 2020 GMC Acadia is built keeping in mind the modern buyer’s tech needs. This is the reason GMC has made sure they stay connected and entertained throughout their journeys. The SUV features the latest GMC infotainment system that is smarter and spontaneous. The automaker has enhanced the voice recognition system as well as the resolution of the 8-inch-diagonal touchscreen. The interface is now more user-friendly.
Talking about the driving experience, the 2020 GMC Acadia is accessible in both front and all-wheel-drive layouts. The Traction Select system allows drivers to adjust chassis and powertrain characteristics according to the driving circumstances. The AT4 comes with an innovative Twin-Clutch all-wheel-drive system for a more refined offroad experience. Furthermore, the alteration in the rear suspension gives an enhanced ride quality on rough terrains.
For a more optimized driving experience, the Acadia Denali comes equipped with Continuous Dampening Control. The system allows drivers to adjust suspension damper tuning in real-time.
The 2020 GMC Acadia is powered by a 3.6L V-6 mill generating 310 hp. The engine boasts direct injection, variable valve timing, in addition to Active Fuel Management (Cylinder Deactivation). It mates to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The modern powertrain delivers enhanced fuel consumption.
The 2020 GMC Acadia starts at AED 134,600 while the AT4 is available at AED 147,500. The range-topping Acadia Denali starts at AED 188,000.
