  • 2013 GMC Acadia Overview

    Automotive Editor - December 11, 2012

    The revision for the 2013 model year are rather significant, as the exterior boasts an all-new look, giving it a more aggressive and SUV-like front end that is highlighted by squinting headlights and a bold grille. The interior was also overhauled and GMC included more soft-touch materials, eliminating the cheap, hard plastics that plague the interiors of other SUVs. GMC also added in an industry-first center airbag, blind-zone alert and rear crossing alert systems, rear-view camera, three new exterior colors and three new interior colors, a smoother transmission and dual-flow shocks and struts for a more comfortable ride.

    The 2013 GMC Acadia comes in five trim levels, and they are: SLE1, SLE2, SLT1, SLT2 and Denali. All five trim levels share drivetrain options, as they all feature a standard 3.6-liter engine that pumps out 288 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission and to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is an available option.

    Though the Acadia is a crossover SUV and that class is typically not expected to tow too much, it does carry a maximum towing capacity of 5,200 pounds across the trim levels, when properly equipped. The SLE trim levels are essentially the base levels, as the SLE1 carries only the basic amenities expected in this type of vehicle and the SLE2 adds in extra airbags for safety, an advanced infotainment system, power seating, and other comfort and convenience items. The SLT trims give the Acadia a little more luxury, as the SLT1 tosses in larger rims, upgraded steering, automatic air conditioning, upgraded seat trimming, and other premium features. The SLT2 simply builds upon the SLT1 with upgraded power windows, seating memory, and other premium features. The Denali is the all-out luxury model that features all of the bells and whistles expected of an SUV.

    Competition is plentiful for the Acadia, as the crossover SUV realm is one of the fastest growing automotive segments. The first competitor up will be the 2013 Honda Pilot, which comes in at $29,420, and comes fitted with a 250-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and can tow up to 4,500 pounds. Next on the list is the 2013 Toyota Highlander, which starts off at $28,870 and comes standard with a 187-horsepower, 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that can tow up to 3,500 pounds with the towing package. When fitted with the 270-horsepower V-6 engine, the Highlander can tow a stout 5,000 pounds and comes in at a base price of $30,245. The final competitor is the 2013 Ford Explorer, which comes in at a base MSRP of $29,135, boasts a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 290 horsepower and can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

    Competition for the Acadia is stiff, and GMC is hoping that its redesigned body and revamped interior can pull some buyers away from the competition.
