For its history the GMC Acadia has been well renowned for its exceptional performance, convenient practicality, and striking looks. The preceding argument grew even stronger when GMC revealed its all new 2017 model year with refreshed styling, tightened size, and modernized interior. Though some cargo compromises had to be made with its shrunken interior, the 2017 Acadia’s redesign proved leagues ahead of its rapidly dating predecessor.
Born in the shadow of its older brother, the 2018 model year doesn’t bring an abundance of changes to the Acadia after the 2017 refresh, though some small and welcomed additions are available. The All Terrain Acadia model, geared for off road use, can now be ordered with an extra row of seats, the Denali trim offers the option for a heated steering wheel, all models come standard with tire air pressure sensors, and an attractive color called Blue Steel Metallic joins the rank of exterior paint options.
Trying to decide which model to buy? If you’re looking for a deal on an Acadia and don’t mind an outdated look, buying a 2016 model might be best for you. As long as you’re open to buying pre-owned, the pre-refresh models offer a bit more cabin room for comfortable back seats and optimal storage space. If you’re looking for refreshed design, refined performance, and a great Apple CarPlay infotainment system, opting for the 2017 or 2018 models would be right for you. The 2018 models aren’t much different save for some added features that might be your deal breaker.
