2016 GMC Acadia
This full-size crossover SUV was originally launched in 2006. It came as replacement for three GM’s models of the Pontiac-Buick-GMC dealership network. This was the company’s first vehicle that has unibody structure. The redesigned model finally came in 2013 and it is the one of four models that use new GM’s Lambda platform. The company’s spokesman announced that 2016 GM crossovers will come with many novelties and new technical achievements in all aspects. However, since this model is still very new, it is expected that 2016 GMC Acadia will be excused from this experiment.
2016 GMC Acadia redesign
The redesigned model came last year and it is expected that 2016 GMC Acadia will keep in that way. It uses new Lambda platform and it has unibody structure, which provides lower center of gravity so risk of rollover is much lower. This crossover is able to accommodate 8 passengers. When it is about it appearance, redesigned model came with many changes like completely revisited front fascia, so some big changes for 2016 Acadia are not expected. However, some minor tweaks are possible. For example, some new color options or new-designed rims are possible. When it is about interior, it will remain unchanged. That definitely won’t be a problem, because cabin of this crossover already has high level of comfort and luxury.
