Smaller, Lighter, and More Fuel Efficient:
The 2017 GMC Acadia SLT Review

Now smaller, lighter, and more fuel efficient, GMC has finally redesigned the Acadia into a more contemporary crossover SUV.

The all-new 2017 Acadia is a lot shorter in length than the previous generations, and there is no longer a third row of seating.

The 2017 GMC Acadia SLT: Lighter Weight, Greater Agility

It’s not a bad thing that it loses some length, because the 2017 GMC Acadia SLT is now a lot more maneuverable, and those tight parking spaces are not as challenging as they used to be. Weight has also been cut to improve fuel economy.gmc_17acadiaslt1od2a_angularrear

Contemporary Crossover Design

The 2017 GMC Acadia’s new exterior trades a lot of truck-based cues for a more contemporary crossover styling. The exterior receives softer contour lines, a sleeker windshield angle, and more toned front and rear lighting elements.

Visually the 2017 GMC Acadia has taken a huge step forward, and is not as boxy as other GM models and trucks. The grille is very prominent and bold; the side body moldings are more defined and sculpted, and the rear side window glass is curved all the way around to the back window.
