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