For 2015, the GMC Acadia gains a heated steering wheel on SLT-2 and Denali trims, a new 20-inch wheel design, and a revised color palate.
Changes to the GMC Acadia for 2014 are minor. The Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning are standard on the Denali and available on SLT1 and SLT2 trim levels, and there are two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console, for use by passengers in the second row of seats.
About GMC Acadia
While it shares the same platform as the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse, the 2016 GMC Acadia 8-passenger SUV in either front- or all-wheel-drive form (FWD, AWD) presents a more rugged exterior juxtaposed with a luxurious interior. In Denali trim, it approaches near-Cadillac levels of equipment and refinement. Passenger space is the Acadia's trump card, with ample room for adults in all three rows. And, unlike the Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander, the Acadia provides ample cargo space with its 3rd-row seat up. With 7.6 inches of ground clearance and maximum tow rating of 5,200 pounds, the Acadia bests both the Ford Flex and Mazda CX-9. Add the available AWD, and the Acadia can tackle just about any road condition.
