Canadian release date for the 2017 GMC Acadia coming to Edmonton, AB
The 2017 GMC Acadia holds the special distinction of being one of the only new GMC models to debut at two different auto shows in separate countries at the same time. Spectators at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto and the Chicago Auto Show in the United States got a first glimpse at the newly redesigned premium SUV. For the new model-year, which will be arriving to dealerships like Don Wheaton later this year, GMC has repurposed the new Acadia to be able to shorten the gap between compact GMC Terrain and the full-size GMC Yukon.
“The new Acadia brings precision and purpose to discerning customers who value professional grade capability on and off the road,” Mike Speranzini, brand director for GMC in Canada said in a press release. “Shedding 700 pounds and 7 inches was an amazing engineering achievement, making it more fuel efficient, more performance oriented and ‘right-sized’ for the Canadian market.”

GMC engineers and designers didn’t go through this process to simply make a new vehicle. The goals of the 2017 Acadia refreshing surround the ideas of increasing the vehicle’s refinement as well as its versatility.
One of the most important innovations made with the redesign of the 2017 Acadia coming to Edmonton, AB is that passengers have been given more space to be comfortable. Available information leads us to believe, that while the second-generation 2017 Acadia has shed a significant amount of weight, passengers in the second and third rows will have more space to work with. Actual dimensions and performance scores for the 2017 Acadia are still forthcoming.
The truly only confirmed fact about the new GMC crossover SUV is that accumulated weight loss will have profound positive effects on the fuel-consumption scores and handling profile.
