The new model comes from General Motors and it will be more powerful, improved and wanted. This one is 2016 GMC Acadia, which is ready to step outside and go ahead with similar models from other producers.
As we know that the first Acadia model has been produced since 2006, it is good to know that new model is coming to the scene, because Acadia was always one of the best-selling models of GM. This SUV can take 8 passengers, including the driver, and thus is able to fight competitors like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Hyundai Santa Fe or Ford Flex.

The interior of new 2016 GMC Acadia will be improved. Nothing special will happen, but refreshment will be noticeable. This family car will have enough space inside to give fantastic comfort to everyone. Fans can expect some additional optional features inside their driving space.

What is certain at this moment is the fact 2016 GMC Acadia will be based on the Lambda platform from General Motors. That means they will use the lightweight materials. Using steel, aluminum and magnesium will make the car lighter and with better performances.
New LED headlights will change the exterior a bit and make it more beautiful. Inside the LED lights, fog lamps will be integrated. The aerodynamics of this SUV will be improved thanks to new bumpers and grille. Alloy wheels will have 20 inches, so this is something that looks fabulous. You can also expect the improvement of tail lights. Three new colors will be offered to new customers, such like:

These colors are real refreshment of the model. The stylized logo of GM will also be very visible and on the central place, on the alloy wheels.
