Model Preview

Despite getting a full redesign in 2017, the 2020 GMC Acadia will boast a comprehensive refresh that will include a new look, new powertrain options, a new off-road package, and more. The SUV will hit showrooms looking like an all-new vehicle with its fully restyled front and rear ends.

Up front, the Acadia will debut a bolder grille, new LED lighting, signature C-shaped accent lights, and an all-new bumper. Around back, new taillights that better match the headlights will debut, as will a new bumper and exhaust outlets. Other updates will include a new AT4 variant with black-chrome-accented grille and unique 17-inch wheels, new 18- and 20-inch wheels, mirror-integrated turn signals, and a hands-free power liftgate with a GMC logo projection.

Inside, the updates are more toned down and include a new center console with additional storage, an updated Denali color scheme with new open-pore-wood trim, an electronic gear shifter, an available head-up display, and a new GMC infotainment system. The new infotainment system will include an 8-inch touchscreen, personal profiles, a new navigation interface with one-shot destination entry and real-time updates, and two new USB-C ports. Other technical updates inside include a next-gen 15-watt charging pad, a high-definition rearview camera, a rear-camera mirror, and a head-up display.

2020 GMC Acadia

Under its hood, the 2020 GMC Acadia will continue with its 193-horsepower 2.5-liter engine and 310-hp 3.6-liter engine, but it will gain an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that will crank out 230 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. Handling the shifting duties for all three engines will be a new nine-speed automatic transmission. GMC will also tweak the suspension for a better ride.

With “Good” crash-safety scores across the board and a “Superior” rating in front-crash prevention with the optional Driver Alert Package II, the current GMC Acadia is as close as you can get to an IIHS Top Safety Pick without being one. Its “Marginal” headlight rating squashed this opportunity, but the new headlights on the 2020 Acadia could change this. Check back for updates.

Pricing & Release Date

GMC expects to have the 2020 Acadia in showrooms in the fall of 2019.

Prices remain unknown, but we expect mild increases over the current model, which ranges from $33,995 to $48,695 (destination fees included).

The 2020 GMC Acadia will compete with the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer, and Subaru Ascent.
