With the year 2020 ushering in, the automotive market has seen many models that have changed for better. Here, we have handpicked the 2020 edition of GMC Acadia, which has secured a stronger position for itself in the segment of three-row crossover SUVs. The new configurations can be truly appreciated as the best strategic moves from the automaker, as they proved to be much effective in making the sales chart see a sharp ascent.
2020 Special Configurations
For the 2020 model year series GMC has granted the Acadia lineup a new turbo-4 engine offered as an extra option, an upgraded infotainment system, and all this trapped in a styling that too got revised with some remarkable changes. As opined by the Maple Shade GMC dealer staff, all these new configurations enabled in the 2020 GMC Acadia series, not only enabled it to survive the cut-throat competition, but also made it soar through it.
Final Power Lineup
So how does the 2020 year power configuration in this GMC three-row crossover SUV looks like? Well, the newly introduced 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine sandwiches between the base 2.5-liter inline-4 and the optional 3.6-liter V-6 engines that got carried over from the last year lineup. The new engine is capable o9f making 230-horsepower that sits exactly between the 193-hp producing base engine and the V-6 one that cranks out 310-hp. The turbo-4 engine is set as the standard for the 2020 Acadia SLE and SLT models along with all-wheel drive configuration, while the base inline-4 engine is standardized for the Base SL and next up SLE models with front-drive setup. The V-6 engine is preserved for the Denali and AT4 trims to leverage their off-road drive capabilities.
What is Common
Irrespective of what is installed under the hood of your 2020 GMC Acadia, all the engines are made to send their power to the respective wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission that too made its entry this year replacing the earlier 6-speed automatic gearbox. The new transmission is set with an automatic stop/start system as a standard feature to improve the existing fuel economy rating on all Acadia models, and tagging them as a quick moving crossover SUV that never fails to deliver a pleasantly composed ride because of its above-the-average road manners.
New Makeover Components
In the showroom of GMC dealer Maple Shade we got to see the 2020 GMC Acadia from a close range and even experienced a fantastic test drive to know the model from inside out. From the cordial staff members of the dealership we got to know that the LED headlights that sit bracketing the magnificent front grille are updated for this year, while the body shape is reframed to give it a boxier silhouette. The new 2020 GMC Acadia AT4 trims now got darker exterior trim with all-terrain tires mounted on their 17-inch alloy wheels as a standard offer from the automaker, while the 20-inch wheels options are also kept available. To sum up, the changes that are made to the 2020 year configurations did help the Acadia models come up as a more desirable crossover option than many of its rivals.
