The 2021 GMC Acadia may have gone from being a full-size to a midsize crossover SUV when the second-generation arrived for the 2017 model year, the 2021 Acadia you can buy from us today here at Barber Motors is still plenty big enough to seat up to seven people very comfortably and in some style.
A lively four-cylinder turbocharged powerplant is now available for the Acadia that helps to enhance a vehicle package that remains stylish, extremely desirable and packed with all the latest comfort, safety and connectivity features. The handsome exterior is just one thing that sets the Acadia apart from its segment rivals, and the all-important infotainment system GMC has put into the Acadia is without doubt one of the better ones in its class.
Buyers can choose from five different trim levels in the 2021 GMC Acadia family, although there are only four options if you absolutely must have the additional capability of all-wheel-drive for your SUV. This is because there’s one Acadia trim level that’s only available in front-wheel-drive format, which is the entry-level Acadia SL. Once you get above the entry-level SL you then go to the SLE, SLT, AT4 and the fabulously generously equipped, range-topping Acadia Denali.
SLE, SLT and Denali models are standard front-wheel-drive with all-wheel-drive available, but the off-road-focused AT4 is obviously and understandably only available as an all-wheel-drive model.
The 2021 GMC Acadia presents potential buyers with a trio of engine options, and the first of this impressive lineup is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four that develops a useful 193 horsepower and 188 lb.-ft. of torque. This capable performer sends that power to the front wheels through an excellent nine-speed automatic transmission, but if you want the extra traction offered by an all-wheel-drive system you’ll have to look beyond this base engine.
The next step up from that base engine is the relatively new 2.0-liter turbo-four which then ups the power ante to a respectable 230 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque that’s sent to your choice of the front or all four wheels through that same nine-speed automatic transmission.
If a V-6 is what you really want under the hood of your new Acadia, GMC continues to be happy to oblige with a 3.6-liter V-6 powerplant that puts out an impressive 310 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is available for each Acadia model apart from the base SL.
It’s not a problem if you don’t have to regularly transport a big family or a bunch of friends or colleagues around because the Acadia is designed to accommodate many different circumstances. This 2021 GMC Acadia can be configured to accommodate five, six or seven people, and there’s even a generous amount of cargo space available even when all seven seats are specified and in use.
There’s only one sign of any concession being made to price in the Acadia lineup which is the entry-level SL model with its base engine and front-wheel-drive, and that’s because the list of standard features and equipment is anything but entry-level. Even these base models come standard with a superb 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, LED headlights, 17-inch alloys, seven seats, four-way manually adjustable front seats, keyless start, and tri-zone automatic climate control.
Move up to an SLE and you then find selectable drive modes, satellite radio, and 18-inch alloys, but the big reason for choosing the SLE over the base model is because you’re then able to
upgrade further to things such as the V-6 or turbo-4 engines, all-wheel drive, a sunroof, heated and cooled power-adjustable front seats, a power liftgate, a premium Bose audio system and more.
SLT models could be where the real value lies in the range for many buyers thanks to the inclusion of that four-cylinder turbo powerplant, leather upholstery, seating for six people, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated seats in the front, remote keyless start and that premium Bose audio system.
The AT4 is where you go if off-road styling and features that make it more capable off-road than any other models in the range equipped with all-wheel-drive are what you require, but you will need to consider the fact the AT4 does only come standard with seating for five people. If that rough, tough off-roading vibe isn’t really your thing and you’re more interested in the finer things in life such as heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, wireless smartphone charging, a powerful V-6 engine, all-wheel drive, adaptive
The 2021 GMC Acadia delivers big on style, presence and quality, and that sets it apart from the competition because it looks and feels like a prestige luxury model but without a luxury price ticket to go with it. The Acadia really is a great option for those who demand top-quality but don’t want to pay over the odds to get it.
Don’t just take our word for it though, come and experience the 2021 GMC Acadia for yourself by visiting us for a test drive today here at Barber Motors, which you’ll find conveniently located at 1 Government Rd, Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
