The 2018 GMC Acadia is considered a low-end luxury vehicle and for what its worth, it is not a bad thing. This makes it available for buyers who yearn to drive a luxurious looking vehicle but does not have enough to spend for it. Owning a GMC has also been somehow related to status symbol.

The crossover is available in front-wheel drive with an all-wheel drive option. This provides buyers options to choose from depending on what they need the vehicle for. Adventure seekers and off-roading enthusiasts would certainly lean towards the all-wheel drive option for a little bit more. City dwellers who are more into style and form and primarily drives around the metro can rely on the front-wheel drive option.

According to Autotrends Today, the GMC's crossover is expected to be released and made available during early to mid-2017. Full production and sales will shortly commence after initial public launch.

It also believed that the price would be between $31,000 and $48,000 depending on chosen option. This can be considered steep making the GMC brand an aspirational one. If a buyer has extra cash to spend, GMC vehicles are always a good option in one way or the other.


The 2018 GMC Acadia is also lighter because the car manufacturer used aluminum. Latest released vehicles are considerably lighter than its predecessors primarily to increase power and decrease fuel consumption. A little bit of irony, however, is present with this crossover. Though lighter, it is believed to be growing in size.

As added by Car and Driver, lighter is constantly better enabling the vehicle to accelerate better and even aggressively when needed. This has been witnessed in 2017 Acadia and is expected to be carried on the soon to be released vehicle. Such technology should please buyers who consider speed as priority buying motive

The GMC Acadia comes with 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6. It is considered to be just like the other crossovers available for release however, it is expected to still deliver the necessary power needed.

The 2018 GMC Acadia's trunk space, however is disappointing. It has been significantly reduced from 116 cubic feet to just 79. For buyers who utilize the trunk more than the vehicle's other features, this may not be an option.

In conclusion, the 2018 GMC Acadia is one good crossover to consider. Sure, it faces other better competitors but the main fact that it is a GMC gives it a little bit more boost. Loyal GMC supporters are definitely looking forward as the crossover gets released anytime soon.
