As we said, 2020 GMC Acadia comes as slightly changed car, especially in shape of the bumpers. That is expected to see the softener and smaller front end, less aggressive and more attractive. It should be closer to models like Nissan Pathfinder or Toyota Highlander. However, the manufacturer decreased the weight of the truck, so it is now for even 700 pounds and has for 7 inches shorter base. The front end is much shorter and softener, with mesh rhomboidal grille and wide air intake on the bottom. The manufacturer also planned new color pallet and larger 20-inches wheels.

The stronger version comes with 3.5-liter V6 model and 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque, while the higher trim gets 2.0-liter petrol model with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
