The 2019 GMC Acadia can be best described as a straight-shooting crossover SUV that can seat up to seven passengers and is a solid choice for those who travel mostly with families. With strategic packages each trim model of the 2019 Acadia lineup serves a wide range of activities that we expect from an SUV.

What changed for 2019?

From the Palmyra GMC dealer we came to know that for the 2019 year revisions done to the lineup of Acadia, we see some minor updates, that includes the addition of a Black Edition packagefor appearance which is applied on the SLT trim. The package covers a 20-inch machine-made aluminum wheels that are accentuated with black color, matching with the black grille, the head and taillamps, roof rails, mirror caps, and wherever possible. The All- Terrain package includes 17-inch wheels, while the entire lineup of the 2019 Acadia gets four new exterior colors: Dark Sky Metallic, Pepper dust Metallic, Red Quartz Metallic, and Smokey Quartz Metallic.

Trim Packages

The 2019 GMC Acadia is lineup is consistent of SL, SLE, SLT, and Denali trims, with the All-Terrain package applied on the SLE and SLT vehicles. You will find the 2.5-liter four cylinder to be standard on almost all trims, though there is an optional 3.6-liter V-6, for a more powerful and capable experience. All the Acadia trims can be configured either as front- or all-wheel drive, that are perfectly geared to match every weather condition.

Power Performance

To make the 2019 Acadia a fun to drive vehicle, GMC has bestowed a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine on its base model which is capable of making 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque when especially it is mated to the slick-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission.

The optional powertrain of 3.6-liter V-6 is an ideal mate for those who are looking for a stronger, and yet quieter rides, which can crank a 310 of hp and 271 pound-feet of torque with the same 6-speed automatic transmission in tune to the engine.

One can go for the optional all-wheel drive to have more relaxed drives, though front-wheel drive is made standard across the entire lineup range except for the Denali.

The all-wheel drive models offer different drive modes through the press of a knob, that tunes the vehicle into sport, towing, and off-road modes. It can also switch the drivetrain between two- and four-wheel when you need to save fuel.

Fun Drive Factors

The 2019 GMC Acadia begets you a rightly-weighted steering wheel has a four-spoke feature, that handles perfectly in every driving situation. The standout feature in every 2019 GMC Acadia trim  is its independent suspension, that effectively absorbs all the road imperfections in spite of riding on18 or 20 inches wheels. The special mode for off-road driving was real fun as it freed the driver from all the exhaustive driving moves automatically.

As heard from many other customers of the Palmyra GMC dealership, the 2019 GMC Acadia makes a good choice as a family crossover SUV with its comfortable and capable rides.
