With the new facelift on the 2020 Acadia, GM continues to deliver a striking midsize SUV with top performing attributes inside and out.
NOTHING QUITE LIKE IT
With an essence of the GMC Sierra 1500, the sleek design of the hood on the newly redesigned Acadia flows beautifully into a more wide, tall, and strong looking grille. This design incorporates the distinctive C-shaped lights and features GMCs new LED lighting technology.
LED lighting is also used for Acadia’s new taller tail lamp design, and with the SLT trim the fog lights feature LED lighting tech as well.
