Design and refinement
An all-new Acadia AT4 expands the reach of GMC’s newest sub-brand. Its bold styling cues, including a black chrome-accented grille, add a rugged, off-road-inspired design to the Acadia range. A 3.6L V-6 engine producing 310 hp and 366 Nm (271 lb-ft) of torque and a twin-clutch AWD system is standard to the AT4. Unique 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires are also standard, with 20-inch wheels as optional
Additional design and refinement enhancements for the 2020 Acadia include:
New 18- and 20-inch wheel designs depending on the trim.
Outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals (power-folding feature standard on SLT and Denali trim).
Hands-free power liftgate with GMC logo projection standard on SLE, SLT, AT4 and Denali.
Redesigned centre console with enhanced storage space.
Unique Denali interior colour scheme with new, open-pore wood decor.
New nine-speed automatic and Electronic Precision Shift
A new nine-speed automatic replaces the previous six-speed automatic as the standard transmission for the 3.6L engines offered in the 2020 Acadia. The nine speed’s additional clutches and gears offer better-optimised acceleration and efficiency, and engine noise is reduced during cruising for greater refinement.
The 2020 Acadia is the latest GMC with Electronic Precision Shift, which enables more storage room in the centre console by replacing the conventional transmission shifter with an electronically controlled gear selection consisting of intuitive push buttons and pull triggers.
New GMC infotainment system and additional technologies
The 2020 Acadia delivers the latest GMC infotainment system that is more intelligent and more intuitive. It offers users improved voice recognition, a higher resolution touchscreen and a simplified interface that requires fewer steps for some tasks, along with simpler screen layouts inspired by the latest smartphone technology.
This more user-friendly system, with an 8-inch-diagonal screen, also incorporates several new and enhanced features:
The personal profile allows users to tailor the infotainment system to their preferences, including audio, available navigation (requires a subscription to compatible Connected Services) and climate settings. Up to four profiles are saved to the vehicle and they can be assigned to the Acadia’s key fobs, automatically resetting the preferences for the incoming driver.
All-new Navigation2 interface with “one-shot” destination entry feature, improved Route Guidance functionality and personalized settings.
USB-C ports. Two new USB-C charging ports are integrated into the front and rear of the centre console. That brings the number of ports in the Acadia to five, including a USB-A charging port for the third-row seating area.
Audio system feature. Bose premium 8-speaker system with sub-woofer standard on AT4, SLT and Denali.
Additional new and enhanced technologies on the 2020 Acadia include:
Next-generation, 15-watt wireless charging (available).
High Definition Rear Vision Camera4 upgraded to digital which is standard on SLE &AT4.
HD surround vision camera standard on SLT and Denali
New Rear Camera Mirror3 standard on Denali.
Suspension refinements that enhance ride and handling.
