Although the overall look of the crossover remains that of a truck, major efforts have been made to give it a modern look with various chrome finish creases and squared off fenders. A new bumper and revamped taillights with new graphics also alter the look of the car to a great extent. Other exterior design features which give the GMC Acadia a refreshing look are new rectangular fog lights, a new grille and thinner head lights.
The interiors have also been redesigned and more power has been given to the buyer to customize the interior design. The buyers will now have the option to choose between premium cloth, leather or perforated leather as the seat covers. high quality material has also been used for designing other interior components which include wood accents on the dashboard and premium floor carpets.
The safety features in the GMC Acadia include blind spot monitors, lane departure warning, cross traffic alerts, collision warning and rear view camera among many more.

Currently, the Acadia has a 6 shift automated transmission which will be upgraded to 9 shift automated transmission along with an all wheel drive.
