Compared to the previous model, the 2017 GMC Acadia has more technologies and features, including an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a rear-seat alert designed to warn parents if they forget a child in the back seat. The car now comes standard with a 2.5-liter inline-four engine good for 194 hp, which is estimated to return up to 22/28 mpg (city/highway) with front-wheel drive, thanks in part to a standard stop-start feature; the old Acadia managed only 17/24 mpg with its old standard V-6 engine and front-wheel drive. A 3.6-liter V-6 with 310 hp is optional on the new model, allowing the Acadia to tow up to 4,000 lb. Both engines mate to a six-speed automatic transmission.
