2016 GMC Acadia Release Date, Review, Price, Images – The 2016 GMC Acadia is a luxury vehicle which a spacious inside and enough interior comfort that it may come as a minivan replacement. But it does not deliver car-like performance stats, but if that is not your primary concern it does not have to. It comes as a splendid people hauler and a vehicle that will transport the passengers from one destination to the other without problems.
First of all, GMC made its name by producing trucks and pickups and it is only in the past decade that it managed to come with some advancement in the crossover and sport-utility segment. The Acadia does not at all come with those truck-like characteristics of the past vehicles, instead it adopts its own position in the world and builds up upon it. It is a SUV which can carry up to 8 passengers at once.
The new 2016 GMC Acadia will come in 3 different trim levels, the SLE, SLT and Denali form. As you can see from the pictures it has adopted quite a good design and the inside entertainment specter has been enhanced considerably. All of this amounts to the car being perfect at its ultimate aim and it can come as a perfect people hauler whenever you needed. Check out some other infotainment and the breakdown of the vehicle in this review.
2016 GMC Acadia exterior
This is the eight model year when the GMC Acadia is being produced, and based on the newest styling the use of liens and the overall handsome styling has enabled it to age well. The car still gets as much acclaim as it did when it was initially released and looks as great as ever with the minor details that were upgraded and enhanced for the outside look. The 2013 model vehicle was the one which greatly helped the Acadia get its pleasant features. This period enabled the car to get chiseled front and wrap-around glass treatment which were borrowed from the design of Saturn Outlook car. But the front part also comes with the pronounced grille which help the Acadia gain a look which is both aggressive and good looking at the same time.
The profile is pretty much straightforward and not anonymous at all. It also looks much more masculine than the opposing Enclave vehicle and this characteristic certainly appeals to the users much more. What the Denali trim offers which does not come in the base version nor the other ones is a chrome-mesh grille which are combined with the distinctive headlights. The Denali trim also comes with a choice between the 18-inch wheels and some 20-inch ones.
On the inside of the 2016 GMC Acadia they decided to keep things simple and not complicate things too much. It actually has one of the simpler layouts among crossover vehicle in the entire segment and it makes it easy to use and you can get used to it much quicker particularly if you are new to this type of a vehicle. But it does come a few comfort upgrades that are not only made to be useful, they look good as well.
The soft touch materials and combined with the leather upholsteries which also come with t French stitching and like that make a perfect combination for a nice homely and pleasant look and feel of the inside of the Acadia. The higher trims have a special red ambient light added to their setup which can help you get in a better mood and give a better atmosphere to the inside of the car. This features is present for the SLT and the Denali trims.
People may have expected a different setup, but there is going to be only a single powertrain option that is going to power all of the 2016 GMC Acadias now. All trims get the use of a 288-horsepower V-6 which is strong enough and perfect enough to power any kind of a family trip you decided to go on. The car also has a total 5,000-pound of curb weight which combined with the appropriate shifter enable a well-balanced ride. It also comes with the standard rear-wheel drive and an optional all-wheel drive as well. So we guess there is no need of adding different engines trims when one does the job perfectly.
