Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base GMC Acadia invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Sturdy and powerful, the 2022 GMC Acadia is an SUV that looks like it should be totally comfortable in rugged terrain. It has a somewhat boxy frame, and it's a fairly large model with three rows of seats. With two available engines, the Acadia has plenty of capability. It can be set up with a number of high-end materials as well.
Is There Anything New for 2022?
In previous years, the lineup used to start with the SL trim. For 2022, that trim has been discontinued. There used to be a 2.5-liter engine as well, but that's no longer part of the options. There are a few new wheel designs, and several driver-assist technologies have become standard.
Power and Performance
Taking away the 2.5-liter engine resulted in the Acadia having more horsepower. The new standard option is a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with four cylinders. It can generate 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It can be used to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
There is another choice, and that's a 3.6-liter V6 engine. It's noticeably more powerful than the smaller turbo engine. It can make 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. With this engine, towing capacity is increased to 4,000 pounds.
Fuel efficiency is an area in which the Acadia doesn't do particularly well. The 2.0-liter turbo engine can earn up to 22 miles per gallon in the city and 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The V6 doesn't quite match those marks. It gets an estimated 19 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway.
Every trim has a nine-speed automatic transmission. They have different drive modes that allow users to change performance settings based on the conditions. Front-wheel drive models have normal, snow, and sport modes. They could also have a trailer/tow mode. All-wheel drive Acadias have 4x4, 2x4, sport, off-road, and trailer/tow modes.
The Acadia is attractive to many customers because of its three rows of seating. Second-row leg room is generous, with passengers getting to enjoy almost 40 inches of leg room. It's a different story in the third row, though. Here, there is slightly less than 30 inches of leg room. Taller passengers probably won't be very comfortable in this row.
There's a small cargo area behind the last row of seats, and it measures 12.8 cubic feet. Lowering the third row expands cargo volume to 41.7 cubic feet, and lowering both rows increases storage space to 79 cubic feet. This should be plenty of space for most situations.
This SUV can carry six or seven total passengers. With the six-seat configuration, it would have a pair of seats in each of the three rows. A little gap would be present between the middle-row seats, and this could make the cabin feel less cramped. The seven-seat configuration would have three seats in the middle row. Things might be a bit tighter, but the extra seat may be necessary for some households.
The basic arrangement is to have cloth seats and a manually adjustable driver's seat. Higher trims can have power-adjustable front seats and leather upholstery. Heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available with this SUV. Even if they don't have front-row ventilation, many trims do have heated front seats.
Many people will be pleased with the Acadia's infotainment package. It comes with an eight-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Voice commands are accepted, providing another option for adjusting controls. SiriusXM is standard, and on many trims, navigation is standard as well.
Another eight-inch screen can be found behind the steering wheel. It's a multi-color driver information screen that can be customized according to personal preferences. It's an available option that some may want to take advantage of.
Every Acadia can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Passengers who enjoy streaming audio, playing online games, and staying in touch with others will appreciate having this type of internet connection while on the road.
To keep devices charged, the SUV has two USB ports in each of the first two rows as well as another port in the third row. Wireless charging is an option.
Surround vision and a head-up display are both available. Surround vision provides a good perspective of how the Acadia is doing when getting in and out of parking spots, and the head-up display provides a convenient way to show important vehicle information.
Drivers can take advantage of advanced technologies that allow the vehicle to watch out for potential problems and work to avoid certain types of accidents. The list of driver-assist technologies includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, and pedestrian detection. The Acadia also has front and rear parking sensors, blind zone alert, and lane keep assist. Plus, it can watch out for rear cross traffic.
With its size, power, and technology, the GMC Acadia would be a good option for those interested in rugged and modern SUVs. The lower trims aren't too expensive, and higher trims can be equipped with more advanced mechanical components and more athletic stylings. The Acadia should be able to enjoy a broad appeal during the upcoming year.
