The Acadia's due back tomorrow by 8am (48 hours precisely.) It's a nice truck, with neat options, almost NONE of which were on my tester. Still I enjoyed the quiet, the ride, the handling and the power. With traction control switched off, there's wheelspin at every takeoff due to the torque and weight transfer.

The stereo plays MP3 CDs, but even its six speakers couldn't save the base radio from being mediocre. The highs were nice, but the bottom end was pretty tepid. Subwoofers, anyone?

I would definitely own one, though it would have to be AWD, due to the traction issues.

GMC's Acadia SUV is getting the midcycle refresh treatment for the upcoming 2020 model year. The update includes a beefed-up look that's more in line with GMC's pickup trucks, a new turbocharged engine option and new technology in the dashboard.

The 2020 Acadia refresh begins with a new front and rear exterior designs. The SUV's enlarged new grille looks like it was borrowed directly from the Sierra and Sierra HD pickup trucks and is flanked by new standard LED headlamps and GMC's signature elongated C-shaped light signatures. Out back, the tail lights also get the C-shaped LED treatment. The reshaped fascias give the SUV a more upright and rugged appearance despite its profile remaining largely unchanged.

Behind that beefy new grille, the Acadia will be available with a new 2.0-liter, dual-scroll turbocharged engine option that makes an estimated 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The new engine will feature GMC's tripower variable-lift valvetrain and cylinder deactivation technology -- which can disable two of the four cylinders in light load conditions -- to help improve fuel efficiency, but final miles per gallon estimates haven't been released just yet.

The new 2.0T will slot in between the Acadia's 2.5-liter four-cylinder (193-horsepower, 188 pound-feet of torque) and the 3.6-liter V6 (310-horsepower, 271 pound-feet) engine options, which persist from the last model year. All three engine offerings will feature stop/start fuel saving tech and come standard with a new nine-speed automatic transmission. That gearbox is controlled via GMC's "Electronic Precision Shift," a push-button shifter that replaces the previous generation's shift lever, freeing space in the cabin and center console for storage.

Just above the new electronic shifter, you'll find GMC's latest generation infotainment system, an 8-inch connected navigation system similar to the one we recently saw in the new Chevrolet Blazer. This new system features a simplified interface and driver profiles that can save a user's preferences and presets to the cloud. The navigation software is now connected with predictive destination entry and online destination search. Finally, the 2020 Acadia will join the growing ranks of vehicles equipped with USB-C connectivity. The new reversible ports will sit alongside the conventional USB-A port and enable standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The 2020 model year will also see the introduction of a new Acadia AT4 trim level with more rugged and aggressive exterior styling. It'll feature dark trim for the grille and exterior details and unique 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires are also standard. AT4 models will come standard with the 3.6-liter V6 engine and twin clutch AWD system.

The 2020 GMC Acadia will hit the road in Fall 2019. We expect to learn more about pricing and fuel economy closer to launch.

A Deeper Dive Into The 2020 GMC Acadia AT4 | GM Authority

General Motors debuted the new 2020 GMC Acadia last month, which has received updated looks, a new available 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, new technologies and, crucially, a new AT4 off-road trim.

Our initial debut story for the 2020 GMC Acadia only briefly touched on the new Acadia AT4 model, so today we’re going to take a closer look at what this package entails.

GMC says the Acadia AT4 gets a black chrome-accented grille, black mirror caps, black roof rails, model specific 17-inch wheels wrapped in Continental Terrain Contact all-terrain tires and a standard twin-clutch all-wheel drive system. The model’s ground clearance is the same as the regular Acadia, but this package gives the three-row crossover a more aggressive, outdoorsy exterior appearance.

Larger 20-inch wheels are also available on the Acadia AT4, although GMC has yet to release photos of the optional wheel set. It’s not clear if the 20-inch wheels will be offered with the same Continental Terrain Contact tires, although that exact set of rubber is indeed available in 20-inch sizes, as far as we can tell.

The Acadia AT4 is only available with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, which is rated at 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. All Acadia trims also get GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission for 2020, and that includes the AT4.

Standard equipment on the Acadia AT4 includes a high-definition rear-view camera (which is also standard on SLT and Denali trims and available on SLE), a hands-free power liftgate with GMC logo projection (also standard on SLT and Denali) and AT4 exterior badging. There’s also AT4-branded heavy duty floor mats and an AT4-branded rear cargo area mat.

The 2020 Acadia will be offered in several exterior colors including Carbon Black Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat, Ebony Twilight Metallic, Summit White, White Frost Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, Smokey Quartz Metallic, Dark Sky Metallic and Red Mohgany Metallic. It’s not clear if all of these colors will be offered on the AT4, though it seems very likely.

More details on the 2020 Acadia AT4, such as pricing and availability, should become available closer to its on-sale date in the fall of this year.
