2023 GMC Acadia: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The current GMC Acadia can be traced back to the 2017 model year when GMC came out with the second generation of the SUV. With the Acadia set to enter its seventh model year on sale under the same generation, the 2023 GMC Acadia is likely to arrive as a carryover model with a full redesign expected to arrive in 2024 with the SUV moving to a larger platform.

As a carryover model, the 2023 Acadia should retain the same overall design as the current SUV that’s on sale. The Acadia mixes ruggedness and luxury in a cohesive way that looks upscale. The front end has a chunky design with a squared-off grille, rectangular headlights, and prominent body cladding on the front fascia. The rear of the Acadia is more toned down with simple lines, rounded taillights, and rectangular exhaust outlets.

The interior of the Acadia features a simple, straightforward design that borrows cues from GMC’s trucks. The center console has a variety of physical controls for ease of use that is intuitively laid out. The SUV’s compact, boxy design results in a cramped third row of seats compared to other options in the midsize class. The cabin has a mix of cheap plastics and some upscale materials, especially with higher trims. The 2023 GMC Acadia should have the same overall interior design as the SUV that’s on sale.

We don’t expect to see any changes to the 2023 Acadia’s list of tech features. An eight-inch touchscreen should be standard, bringing wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth, six audio speakers, and satellite radio. Available features should include an eight-speaker Bose audio system, navigation, a wireless charging pad, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

GMC offers the Acadia with two engines. We don’t expect any changes to either powertrain for 2023. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard and makes 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. A 3.6-liter V6 engine is available and produces 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and are available with front-wheel and all-wheel drive.

The current Acadia comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, parking sensors, and pedestrian detection. Available safety features include a head-up display and adaptive cruise control. These safety features should remain the same for 2023.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2023 GMC Acadia should have a similar price range as the current SUV that’s on sale. The current Acadia ranges from $35,995 up to $47,795 (with destination).

We expect the 2023 Acadia to arrive later this fall. The midsize SUV will compete with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Kia Telluride, Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and Dodge Durango.
