After a complete redesign last year, we are pretty sure that 2018 GMC Acadia won’t feature some more important changes. As you probably know, this model originally came in 2007. After almost ten years of production, the company did a complete redesign, which included some significant changes. The new model not only that comes with a new appearance, design solutions, mechanical parts and similar things, but also comes with changes in size. So, this is a completely new vehicle, way different than original in many aspects. The company launched it last year in May, as the 2017 year model. So, it is still very fresh and 2018 Acadia surely won’t feature some more important changes. We expect its arrival late this year.
2018 GMC Acadia changes
The 2018 GMC Acadia will continue in the same way as a current model, which came completely redesigned last year. There are many changes in pretty much all aspects. Not only that new model rides on a new platform, but also comes with big changes in size. It now basically belongs to the class of mid-size crossovers and stands above Terrain. Besides smaller size, the new model is also significantly lighter. According to the manufacturer, this version is about 700 pounds lighter than original, which is amazing. Naturally, the complete redesign includes big changes in styling. The new model features completely new design language, and has a more rugged look, besides other esthetic improvements. The 2018 GMC Acadia will come in several variants. There are three versions when it comes to seating. You can configure you model for 5, 6 or 7 passengers. It comes in SL, SL-1, SL2, SLT-1, SLT-2 and Denali trim levels.
