The All-New, Competitively-Priced GMC Acadia Arrives at Dealerships in the UAE This Month

The all-new 2017 Acadia – designed to offer great versatility and refinement, with more advanced safety technologies – will be available for sale at UAE dealer showrooms this Month, starting from 129,900 Dirhams

Dubai – The all-new GMC 2017 Acadia – which comes packed with an expanded range of available active safety features and new 310 HP 3.6L V6 powertrain – offers Middle East buyers a truly compelling package.

The 2017 GMC Acadia lineup will go for sale across showrooms in the UAE this month – starting from 129,900 AED (199,900 AED for Denali).  Acadia SLE and SLT come standard with a three-year/60,000 kilometers scheduled service package while Acadia Denali benefits from a four-year/80,000 Kilometers schedule service package. All trims are complemented by a three-year/60,000 kilometers manufacturer warranty, as well as four years of 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

The strategic re-scoping of the 2017 Acadia – which comes in three distinct trim levels that include SLE, SLT and Denali – offers customers a midsize crossover positioned between the compact Terrain and full-size Yukon. Depending on the model, it is available with five-, six- or seven-passenger seating, while offering greater maneuverability and enhanced driving dynamics over the first-generation model.

The new Acadia is 318 Kilograms lighter than the outgoing model, which pays dividends with fuel efficiency.

A new standard 3.6L V-6 engine is more powerful and efficient, while offering over 1800 Kilograms of estimated trailering capability (with the available towing package). It delivers 310 horsepower and 9.41 L/100km highway (FWD models). In addition, the Acadia’s new engines feature direct injection, variable valve timing, and active fuel management. The new V6 is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and an electronically controlled drive mode selector.

As a contemporary crossover designed for families on the go, the 2017 Acadia offers the latest active safety features to protect them, as well as the latest technologies to keep them connected. The active safety features –such as Front Pedestrian Braking and Surround Vision Camera –are designed to help make drivers more aware of their surroundings and potential crash situations. With this in mind, the vehicle is also equipped with a new, standard rear seat alert that can remind the driver when an item may have been left in the second- and third-row seats.

“The 2017 Acadia SLE is loaded with a number of safety, design, and performance enhancements yet still costs as much as the previous model,” said Mohsen Kassem, Regional Marketing and Sales Manager, GMC Middle East. “This is a strong testament to GMC’s commitment to positioning its premium products as the segment best in terms of safety and technological features.”

Built on a new, lighter body structure, the 2017 Acadia is completely redesigned to strike at the heart of the Medium SUV market. It will offers GMC customers a bold design that inspires confidence, a finely crafted interior and segment leading specification and the capability that the GMC legacy is built on.

The 2017 GMC Acadia is available for viewing at Al Ghandi Auto and Bin Hamooda Showrooms.
