2022 GMC Acadia in Kanata
Posted on June 10, 2022
GMC crossovers offer an enticing blend of ruggedness, power, and comfort that sets them apart from their mid-size SUV competitors. The Acadia slots neatly into the centre of their range, offering plenty of space in the cabin and power under the hood, but not quite hitting the gigantic dimensions of the company's Yukon model. The latest 2022 GMC Acadia is now available at our Kanata dealership, and here's why it demands a test drive as soon as possible.
Classic GMC Looks
Although it's officially a mid-size SUV, the Acadia's design is resolutely big, bold, and ruggedly good looking. The huge front grille, chunky hood, and high wheel arches give a first impression of a hefty pickup, while the moulded and curved bodywork smooths the edges to give a modern SUV appearance with plenty of heft.
Extreme Power Under the Hood
Even at the entry level of the range, the 2022 GMC Acadia provides ample power for daily driving and weekend adventuring alike. The base model features a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine making 228 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque, powering front-wheel or all-wheel drive via a nine-speed automatic transmission. This base configuration is plenty powerful enough to propel the Acadia with confidence and poise, and provides a smooth driving feel under most conditions.
However, trading up to the 3.6L V6 pushes the ponies up to 310 hp and ups the torque to 271lb-ft, which combines beautifully with all-wheel drive and adaptive suspension to turn the Acadia into a genuine off-road performer that's also highly capable on the highway.
The Acadia may be impressively rugged on the outside, but the interior offers a surprisingly comfortable experience. Standard and available features include heated and ventilated front seats with eight-way power adjustment, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power-adjustable steering column. And lastly, active noise cancellation technology delivers a serene journey for driver and passengers alike.
Infotainment and Technology
Every model in the Acadia range is fitted with an infotainment touchscreen display of up to 8" in size, running Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration. A Wi-Fi hotspot facility is supplied as standard, backed up by multiple USB ports for plentiful connection and charging opportunities. In-built navigation is provided on every trim, while optional upgrades include an 8" driver information screen, a head-up display, and a premium eight-speaker audio system from Bose.
Safety and Driver Assist Technologies
The 2022 Acadia earned an unbeatable five-star rating from the NHTSA, reflecting its rugged build and physical quality. However, that's not the end of the safety story, as there's a generous amount of active safety technology included in every Acadia as standard. Highlights include:
- Automatic forward emergency braking including pedestrian detection.
- Lane departure warnings and keep assist.
- Blind spot monitoring with integrated rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Hi-definition rear view camera.
- Available adaptive cruise control.
