Less Weight, More Luxury: 2017 GMC Acadia

2017 GMC Acadia Denali GMC decided to take its popular Acadia model under the knife for the 2017 model year, with the all-new crossover losing a remarkable 700 pounds for its latest rendition. The size decrease accounts for increased fuel efficiency and a far more nimble maneuverability, while the sleeker, sportier exterior gives it a tougher edge.   Mike Parris for WTOP got to take a spin in a completely decked out 2017 Acadia Denali, and its improved curbside appearance was a major draw.   “Right off, it’s clear that it has a different look,” he writes. “This new Acadia looks more rough and tough than the last model, with a more truck-like front end, a large, in-your-face grill and a lot of chrome trim pieces on this Denali trim level.”

Slimmer and sleeker than ever before

The new Acadia is all about providing more bite in a smaller package, which translated to easier parking and general day-to-day handling for Parris. Inside, the Acadia’s premium cabin provides every comfort a family would want, from heated and ventilated seats to a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, adaptive cruise control and ample leg room. Parris notes that the third row seating and ensuing cargo space has been limited to trim it down to size, but this better-positions the Acadia in response to its midsize crossover competition.   “The weight loss means the fuel economy is better than before,” stresses Parris, who also noticed a jump in the model’s performance. “My tester managed 21 mpg in 295 miles of mixed driving, beating the 20 mpg on the sticker. It’s about 2 to 3 mpg better than the previous version.”   Other improvements include a quieter cabin experience, improved safety and tech offerings across the board, and the inclusion of more premium cabin materials.   “The new 2017 GMC Acadia Denali is a big step forward in the more premium midsize crossover market,” sums Parris. “A better ride and a more distinctive look inside and out help this new GMC Acadia stand out.”
