The 2024 GMC Acadia: Everything You Want in a Luxury Vehicle

For years, people have had many priorities on their to-do lists, bucket lists, and things they want to accomplish in life. Everyone has an idea of their dream life, with the perfect house, body goals, a loving spouse, and children to raise. Among those is another critical dream everyone can say they’ve thought about for a long time, and that is the type of car they want. Now, when I was a kid, I really wanted a limo. It was stylish and fancy, and most importantly, it came with a chauffeur. Unfortunately, none of us are wealthy enough to hire a 24/7 driver for the celebrity-looking vehicle of our dreams, ready to roll up to a red carpet. Instead, you look for vehicles that can offer this luxury and comfort while remaining practical on the road and turning heads wherever you go. That means a spectacularly and purposefully designed exterior to show off your ride, a convenient and high-tech interior to make you feel like the celebrity you were born to be and impressive features installed for maximum entertainment. That is right, I’m talking about the 2024 GMC Acadia.

Today, there is no more wondering about what GMC can provide us via exceptional design, technology, and other unique features that set the Acadia apart from other SUVs. Not to mention the upgrades and trim options that make all the difference, available to you for this upcoming luxury vehicle. Besides talking about why this is a dependable, safe car for you and your family, I will get into some of the more technical details about what powers this SUV and tell you everything you will come to expect from ultimate luxury. GMC has had many years to perfect premium rides and will not disappoint you with the 2024 model year. So, let’s dive right in and talk a little bit about your new Acadia.

2024 GMC Acadia Intro

First, let’s get to know the ins and outs of the new GMC model that we can expect to see on the lot in early 2024. While there is no current MSRP for how much this vehicle will cost, its previous model, the 2023 Acadia, was priced around $35,000 and has been a popular ride. In fact, since the early 2000s, the GMC Acadia midsize SUV has seemed to dominate the roads. Now, the 2024 model will be coming in hot with a few noticeable differences, like the larger build making it capable of holding more cargo while maintaining its standard three-row build. With the standard (and only) 2.5L Turbo I-4 engine, you get 328 hp and 326 lb-ft of torque and an 8A transmission for a powerful driving experience. If you need to do some towing, the Acadia has a surprisingly high max towing limit of 5,000 lbs, showing off some power beneath the luxury.

Luxury Features

Now, let’s take a peek at the stylish, high-end material that went into crafting this classy interior. With the ability to hold up to eight people, there is plenty of legroom to keep both driver and passengers comfortable along the way. Overhead, you will never be claustrophobic with the panoramic sunroof that comes standard on all models. You’ll find the seating is fitted with a light premium cloth with available leather seat upgrades featuring an embroidered GMC logo on the top heads of the seats. I’m a fan of those embroidered-style seats; it just screams high class. That’s not all for the insides; let’s check out the technology next.

Some of the most stunning technology can be found in this upcoming SUV, chief among them being the Smartphone and Android-compatible 15-inch infotainment screen with built-in Google apps to give you better tech integration and entertainment while on the road. New with the 2024 model is an eight-inch heads-up display that offers an abundance of helpful information on the road: multiple camera views around the vehicle, driving assistance features, speed limit assist, emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, and much more. With the Acadia, you’ll be more confident in the driver’s seat than ever before, and arguably, it makes for a great first-time driver’s car.

The exterior design is one of the significant changes for the 2024 Acadia from the 2023 model. Since it has undergone some mechanical surgery, the 2024 model will have a totally new look. Starting with its larger size, the body build is longer than the previous model by 10.6 inches. It is a bit more girthy, being 3.2 inches taller and 4.2 inches wider, while offering some new sexy black accents on its rear and LED headlamps to light the way in front. Its bold exterior is curved in all the right places, especially as it sits on 18-inch, all-terrain wheels. Get used to being the center of attention because everyone will want you to drive them around in this new Acadia SUV.

Comfort and Convenience

When you own an SUV, comfort and convenience should be in the name. SUVs are looked at for their high seating and safety on the road. While carrying precious cargo and hauling whatever you need to bring with you, you want to make sure you will have the ability to travel over any path and remain well on track; you will find this with the 2024 GMC Acadia. Not to mention its folding seats to offer more space to bring everything with you on your journey. The new model has excellent traction and suspension available, with traction modes selectable from an easy interface on the dashboard. Don’t worry about not having cozy interiors ever again, as you glide over every bump and blemish on the road.

Trim Options

The new 2024 GMC Acadia will keep the trim options easy to choose from with three convenient models: the Elevation, AT4, and the Denali. These sleek options come with all-new looks on their exterior choices and distinct features that will blow you away. The base or standard model is the Elevation trim that can be upgraded with 20-inch aluminum wheels. The AT4 option is for those ready for wild adventures, as it suits AWD and the famous terrain mode. Now, the Denali, on the other hand, will meet all your expectations for a luxury vehicle and more. It sports silver accents instead of the standard black and can be enhanced with high 22-inch wheels with all-terrain tires. It will be an unstoppable and unbeatable option. No matter which trim you choose, you will surely be impressed.

However, if you are empowered behind the wheel of a luxurious and confident SUV, your search is over. Based on previous years of the Acadia model, this will be one of the best SUVs on the road this coming new year.
