2017 GMC Acadia Gets Price Cut, Starts at $29,995

DETROIT — The all-new 2017 GMC Acadia midsize SUV will start at $29,995 when it arrives at GMC dealerships this spring, GMC said on Tuesday.

Pricing includes a $925 destination charge and reflects a $1,905 decrease compared to the base 2016 Acadia.

The price cut is designed to make the 2017 Acadia more competitive against the Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Highlander.

The midrange 2017 Acadia SLT FWD or front-wheel-drive model starts at $39,275, including shipping.

The 2017 Acadia All Terrain AWD or all-wheel-drive model is priced at $40,040, including shipping.

The top-of-the-line 2017 Acadia Denali AWD starts at $47,845, including shipping.

GMC said the new Acadia offers more standard equipment than the outgoing model, including a new IntelliLink system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The pricing strategy is calculated to "introduce Acadia to a new generation of customers," said Duncan Aldred, GMC vice president of sales and marketing.

The base Acadia is equipped with a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine; a 3.6-liter V6 engine is optional. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Edmunds says: GMC prices the 2017 Acadia under the critical $30,000 mark, which should be a showroom draw for many SUV shoppers.
