2013 GMC Acadia Priced from $34,875
The revamped 2013 GMC Acadia crossover will hit dealerships this fall. The automaker’s three-row crossover SUV will have a starting price of $34,875. The top of the line 2013 Acadia Denali will have a $46,770 price tag. Both these prices are inclusive of a destination charge of $875. The new crossover will carry a base price which is $1000 higher than the 2012 model. The new Acadia was first seen at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show featuring new styling and upgraded interiors.
The 2013 GMC Acadia features a standard rearview camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED daytime running lights, rear parking sensors, a USB port and ambient interior lighting. The Denali has standard features which include a power tilt/telescoping steering column, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring system and GM’s Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The other available options on the 2013 GMC Acadia include a power liftgate, heated/cooled seats, HID headlights, a touch-screen navigation and a dual-panel sunroof. Most of the 2013 Acadia’s feature GM’s new IntelliLink infotainment interface as well as a center air bag to protect the driver and the front passenger in a side impact crash.
“The 2013 Acadia arrives with great momentum,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. “Our design and engineering updates add even more value to an award-winning vehicle that just saw its best August ever, with retail sales up 35 percent.” The seven- and eight-passenger GMC Acadia is powered by a lightly modified version of the 3.6-liter V-6 in the pre-refresh crossover. The engine delivers 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, and fuel economy is EPA-rated at 17/24 mpg city/highway in front-drive form and 16/23 mpg with all-wheel drive. On the 2012 Acadia, all-wheel drive is a $2000 option. The price hike might just help the new crossover to stand out from the other crossovers in the market.
