The new 2018 GMC Acadia continues the model’s legacy of providing families with ample space and the latest technology for a comfortable drive. Whether you’re commuting to your job or venturing out on a road trip, the 2018 Acadia is a reliable pick for those who want a well-rounded mid-size SUV.
The 2018 GMC Acadia shines with its roomy interior. It can accommodate up to seven passengers, making it perfect for family road trips.
If space is what you need, you can utilize the up to 79 cubic feet of storage space when you fold both the second- and third-row seats down. Even if you only collapse the third row, you can still access a sufficient 41.7 cubic feet to store groceries, sports gear and more.
Customized powertrain options
The lower four trims of the 2018 Acadia come equipped with a 2.5-liter engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Yielding an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, this powertrain is the most fuel-efficient choice if you value minimizing your carbon footprint when you drive.*
The upper two trims — SLT-2 and Denali — deliver a dominant driving experience. Each version churns out 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque to provide an adrenaline rush for every adventure. Add on the maximum towing capacity of 4,000 pounds and you have one brawny mid-size SUV that can easily haul your family camper on your next weekend getaway.**
Intuitive technology perks
The 2018 Acadia’s infotainment system comes with your choice of a seven- or eight-inch screen. OnStar® 4G LTE and the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot mean that you can stay connected while on the go. Pamper yourself by upgrading to the Bose® premium eight-speaker system available on the SLT-1 trim. SiriusXM® Satellite Radio is available no matter which trim level you choose.
Keep the children entertained on road trips with the available universal tablet holders and optional Rear Seat Entertainment System.
GMC has included the latest driver assist features you can add on to the 2018 Acadia of your choice. Select the available Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert function to extend your line of vision when moving into a different lane.
Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert helps you to avoid colliding with objects, other cars and pedestrians behind the vehicle. A rear vision camera provides an additional layer of defense when you’re backing out of the garage or a parking space.
If you’re on the market for a contemporary ride that safely and delightfully transports you and your family, look no further than the 2018 GMC Acadia.
