2019 GMC Acadia: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The GMC Acadia received its first big redesign back in 2017, making it 7.2 inches shorter, 3.5 inches narrower, and about 700 pounds lighter. Now, as we enter its third year of production, we expect the Acadia to remain unchanged.

As a carryover, we expect no big changes to the 2019 Acadia’s appearance. This should pose no issues, as its new looks are stylish, modern, and modest enough to satisfy a large cross-section of buyers. In 2018, the Acadia’s interior regained an optional third row, but that was the only change in the cabin, and we expect even less change in 2019.

Being a carryover model also means we expect to see the same list of standard features. If this is the case, the list of standard equipment will include 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, keyless ignition, tri-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, and more.

We also expect its powertrain to remain the same in 2019. If this proves true, look for its standard powerplant to remain a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque. Optionally, buyers can go with a 3.6-liter V6 that ups the Acadia’s power to 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will continue to pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive will come standard, but buyers can opt for all-wheel drive.

Safety is a mixed bag for the 2018 Acadia, as its IIHS crash-test scores are all “Good,” but it failed to qualify for a Top Safety Pick designation due to its “Marginal” headlight rating. With no changes anticipated, we expect these ratings to carry over to the 2019 Acadia.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect 2019 Acadia production to kick off in mid June 2018, and this carryover crossover should arrive in showrooms soon after.

Given there are no changes, we expect 2019 Acadia pricing to remain similar to the current model, which ranges from $33,595 to $48,095 (destination fees included).

Key competitors for the Acadia include the Honda Pilot, Dodge Durango, and Chevy Traverse.
