Trims and Powertrain

GMC presents the 2024 Acadia in three trim packages: Elevation, AT4, and Denali. Their new powertrain is the aforementioned turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 328 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive (AWD) an option for all but the AT4, which gets standard AWD. An eight-speed automatic transmission manages both drivetrains. When it’s properly equipped, the new Acadia can tow up to 5,000 pounds (an increase of 1,000 lb. over the 2023 model’s capacity).

Standard Features: Highlights

Although the Elevation is the least expensive in the Acadia’s trim range, it’s far from a base offering, with standard features such as CoreTec leatherette upholstery, seven-passenger seating, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a six-way power front passenger seat, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start. It also gets an 11-inch driver information display, rear privacy glass, heated power side mirrors with integrated turn indicators, active noise cancellation, multiple USB ports (one each for the second and third rows), wireless device charging, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rear climate controls, remote start, and 20-inch aluminum wheels.

If you want to take it beyond the pavement, the highly capable AT4 should be your choice. It’s more than ready for the trails with a lifted chassis, an off-road-tuned suspension, a multi-terrain drive mode selector, front and underbody skid plates, hill descent control, hill start assist, front tow hooks, and all-terrain tires. GMC has also incorporated a high-approach front-end design for easier travel over uneven surfaces. Its seats are upholstered in a mix of cloth and CoreTec, and the exterior features roof-mounted side rails and 18-inch wheels.

The top-level Denali lives up to its name with a load of standard features such as premium perforated leather upholstery (first and second rows), heated and ventilated front seats, a driver’s position memory system, power-folding and sliding second-row seats, heated rear outboard seats, a power-folding third row, a head-up display, real wood interior accents, and exclusive exterior treatments. The loaded list of attributes continues with a power tilt-and-telescopic steering column, sound-reducing glass, a heated wiper park (the windshield bottom is warmed to prevent ice from forming), rain-sensing windshield wipers, ambient cabin lighting, animated exterior lighting, and 20-inch wheels.

Advanced Driver Aids and Safety Technology

Every 2024 Acadia is equipped with a series of specialized driver-assist features. These technologies include forward collision alert, enhanced automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian and bicycle braking, blind-zone steering assist, rear cross-traffic braking, intersection automatic emergency braking, enhanced lane keep assist, rear pedestrian detection, reverse automatic braking, side bicyclist alert, and adaptive cruise control.

In addition, every 2024 Acadia has a Safety Alert Seat (the driver’s seat vibrates during specific safety notifications as an extra measure of awareness), rear parking sensors, automatic high beams, a following distance indicator, traffic sign recognition, a rear seat reminder, and a high-definition rearview monitor. Super Cruise driving assist is optional on all trims. The system offers hands-free driving on more than 400,000 miles of divided roadways in the U.S. and Canada. The technology also supports automatic lane changes when requested via the turn signal.

Infotainment and Connectivity

One of the most significant cabin upgrades for the 2024 Acadia is its portrait-oriented 15-inch infotainment display. This high-resolution touchscreen is standard across all trims and features customizable panels and Google built-in functionality with navigation access. The system incorporates wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio, plus access to OnStar/GMC connected services and a Wi-Fi hotspot. All trims get a 12-speaker Bose audio system that can be upgraded to a 16-speaker setup in the Denali.
