"GMC is a strong, growing premium brand and the Acadia is a cornerstone of our success story," said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. "The all-new Acadia leverages GMC proven SUV experience to take on and shake up one of the largest vehicle segments, with a strong blend of design, technology and capability." The new GMC Acadia goes on sale in spring 2016, almost a decade after its original introduction, and coming off of its strongest sales year ever in 2015 with 96,393 deliveries.
When it comes to safety, the Yukon lineup incorporates new technologies to help protect the driver and passengers before, during and after a collision. They include a forward radar system and the segment only front seat center-mounted air bag (models with bucket seats), which is engineered to provide additional protection to drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes, where the affected occupant is on the opposite, non-struck side of the vehicle. Standard and available safety features, depending on the model, also include forward collision alert, front park assist, lane departure warning, lane change assist, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, front and rear automatic braking, and GM Safety Alert Seat. It offers directional vibrations to alert the driver about potential crash threats.
"We gave the GMC Granite Concept a bold yet appealing design that truly makes a styling statement," said Juho Suh, exterior design manager. "For a new generation of urban professionals, it delivers the look and functionality they need." In keeping with the vehicle urban theme, the exterior of the GMC Granite Concept has a series of complex, intersecting planes and angles, creating the impression of an industrial machine - an object created out of necessity, but admired for its precision and functional aesthetics. A forward-angling motif that cuts through the door panels, starting high and behind the doors and cutting to the center of the front door, suggests motion, as does a high beltline and tapered side glass. A rear spoiler is integrated into the roof and extends slightly above the rear glass. Other angles and planes of the exterior appear carefully metal-crafted.
The new GMC Acadia offers a greater emphasis on refinement, while remaining instantly recognizable with an evolution of the vehicle signature, professional grade design cues such as a chrome-trimmed grille, squared off and flared wheel arches and wraparound rear side windows with dark D-pillars. "It a confident design influenced by extensive customer input," said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global GMC Design and User Experience. "The original Acadia was very truck-inspired, but the new model has a decidedly SUV influence conveyed in sculptural details, softened corners and a sleeker windshield angle."
