For the third year of production, the second-generation of this crossover will come without bigger changes. The 2019 GMC Acadia will continue in the same way, featuring a new design that came two years ago. The original version of this crossover came in 2006. After a full decade, we finally saw a redesign less than two years ago. The second-generation model came with numerous changes, starting from a new platform, new styling, and interior design. For the next year, the 2019 Acadia will come with minor changes, mostly in terms of new colors and new standard features.
2019 GMC Acadia Changes
When it comes to changes for the 2019 GMC Acadia, we won’t see many of them. This crossover will continue in the same way, riding on the company’s C1XX platform, which is in use for numerous models from General Motors. The new model will offer four new exterior colors, thought three finishes from the last year will be deleted. Also, we will see new rims and tires. On the inside, changes will be minor too. We will see things like new color schemes, and also new window controls.
Speaking of the 2019 GMC Acadia configurations, the base trim level organization will remain the same. There are four trim levels in the offer:
The base 2019 GMC Acadia SL will continue with the third row of seating as a standard feature. Also, count on things like 17-inch alloy wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, leather-wrapped steering wheel, height adjustable driver’s seat. In terms of gadgetry, there are things like 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB ports, smartphone, 6-speaker audio system etc.
The next one is called SLE. This one adds numerous standard features, like LED running lights, satellite radio, 18-inch wheels, fog lights, power liftgate, power-adjustable seats, remote engine start, roof rails and much more.
Moving next to the SLT, you get a bunch of safety systems, including blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors. There are also things like leather upholstery, a Bose audio system and much more. The 2019 GMC Acadia SLT-2 will be a nice upgrade in particular. This model will include all above and also add things like 20-inch wheels, lane departure warning, and mitigation, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, front parking sensors etc.
Finally, there is a well-known top-level Denali trim. This model comes not only with more standard features but with numerous visual upgrades as well.
