The 2017 GMC Acadia Looks Like A Step Toward Extinction For Huge SUVs

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The 2017 GMC Acadia ditches the last model’s chunky truck-like look for sleeker lines.

2017 GMC Acadia Shrinks, Loses 700-lbs

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - GMC rolled out the all-new smaller and lighter 2017 Acadia today at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show. Built on a new platform, the 2017 Acadia is about 6-inches shorter than the current version while the curb weight is down 700 pounds to sit at 3956 pounds when equipped with front-wheel drive. GMC shrunk the Acadia so that it plays directly in the midsize crossover segment and now sits directly between the Terrain and Yukon, though five, six and seven-passenger versions are all available.
