GMC Acadia
Although the natural progression of an SUV in America seems to be its assured growth in all directions when the new model debuts, the all-new Acadia is actually smaller than the previous model. About seven inches shorter in length and 3.5 inches narrower, the Acadia still manages to offer similar or better seating space. As an added bonus, GMC has managed to knock 700 pounds off the overall weight. This translates to better performance and fuel economy from either a new 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine or 3.6-liter V6. The V6 will offer an estimated 310 horsepower with a 4,000-pound towing capacity. As with the previous generation, a number of different trims will be available for Acadia buyers, including the top-of-the-line Denali and a new All-Terrain version providing enhanced off-road ability. Acadia is available with 5-, 6- or 7-passenger seating — the third row is a 50/50 split and when folded provides a flat cargo floor for easy loading. The new Acadia is slated to arrive in showrooms in spring 2016.
