East Coast Meets West – The All-New 2017 GMC Acadia in Victoria, BC
Whether you are driving across Vancouver Island, BC, or Canada you can do it all in the redesigned 2017 GMC Acadia. Though you’ve always been told not to judge a book by its cover, or a vehicle by its styling; what you see is what you get with the new Acadia SUV. You expect it to be safe, and it delivers a perfect 5-star overall safety rating on the AWD model. You expect it to be strong, and it delivers with a 310-horsepower with its available V6 engine. And you expect it to handle all terrains, which it can more than achieve with its available all-wheel drive. Just don’t expect it to be full: at 2237 litres of available storage space, you’ll run out of things to put in it before it runs out of room.
Tighter styling and increased capability mean that the 2017 GMC Acadia has been elevated to compete its in segment. The mid-sized SUV market is tough and the Acadia competes with its three distinct model levels: the Acadia, the Acadia All Terrain and the Acadia Denali. This means you can choose the trim level that suits your lifestyle.

2017 GMC Acadia Performance & Economy
A terrain-conquering SUV should have an equally mighty engine. That’s exactly what you get under the hood of the 2017 GMC Acadia. There are now two engine choices to personalize this SUV to you too. The standard engine is a 2.5L 4-cylinder VVT engine that gives a max output of 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque. The best thing about this engine is its fuel efficiency of 9.2L/100km highway and 11.0L/100km city. The second available engine is the powerful 3.6L direct-injection V6 VVT which serves you 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. This engine still manages a 9.5L/100km highway fuel economy rating, impressive for the size of the Acadia, especially when you mention that it’s capable of towing up to 1,814 kg (4,000 lbs) when properly equipped. Proper equipment for towing also includes Active Tow System and Trailer Sway control. All models are set up with a 6-speed automatic transmission and optional all-wheel drive to handle the slickest Vancouver Island roads and routes.
2017 GMC Acadia Interior
Though it’s probably obvious from its exterior, the true achievement of the GMC Acadia is its size. Seating up to 7 passengers, the Acadia has a sliding 2nd row (either a bench or captain’s chairs) that lets you decide how to divvy up the legroom. One of the quietest SUVs on the market, nearly every feature you’ll interact with is handsomely padded with active noise cancellation. This means smoother rides and sounder sleeps for all your passengers. Every feature inside the 2017 Acadia is made for convenience, that’s why you get features like tri-zone climate controls, underfloor storage, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM, enhanced driver information system and leather wrapped steering wheel. These features are all standard on the base (SLE-1) model. For more information on what can be found inside the new Acadia, please consult our sales team at Jenner Chev.
2017 GMC Acadia Safety
The new 2017 GMC Acadia may have received the top 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA for the AWD models (including perfect marks for front-impact and side-impact for all), but that doesn’t mean its security is all brawn and no brains. Quite the contrary: with standard features on all models including rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and OnStar remote assistance, you receive added safety no matter where you are on the road, or off it. Available safety features on higher trims and the Acadia Denali include blind-spot monitors and a lane-departure warning, keeping you covered at your flanks.
