New powertrain spaces
GMC has taken full advantage of its parent company’s engine technology that almost perfectly balances performance and fuel economy. The new turbocharged, 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder engine will be attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will make 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, according to current GMC estimates.
The automaker is also keeping the two existing power plants for the 2020 GMC Acadia, a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine and a 3.6-liter, V-6. These engines will also employ the nine-speed automatic transmission.
“The 2020 Acadia is stylish, functional and capable with more of the smart convenience and connectivity features that customers rely on every day,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC, said in a press release. “And with GMC’s signature refinement at its core, the new Acadia advances the brand’s commitment to offering premium vehicles for discerning crossover customers.”
New trim grade
The AT4 trim name has already been employed with the 2019 GMC Sierra. Billion Auto Group customers will be able to choose the 2020 Acadia AT4 and its bolder exterior styling and darkened finish on certain accent pieces. The automaker will also be making a color heads-up display available with the 2020 Acadia, though it won’t be installed on the new crossover SUV’s initial delivery.
