When the Yukon is too large, but you still need three rows of seats for those occasional passengers you need to ferry, the GMC Acadia is the perfect answer. The 2022 GMC Acadia is a midsize SUV that can seat up to seven with a versatile interior suited for both cargo and passengers. Slip into the comfort of the sumptuous interior with premium upholstery, attractive aluminum trim, and soft-touch surfaces that elevate your daily drive. Generous technology features offer you convenience and connectivity, and the interior space provides hidden storage to keep your cabin neat and tidy. Driver assist technology across all the trim levels ensures you and your family will arrive at your destination safely, and when you pull up in the prominent 2022 Acadia, it speaks to your discerning style and taste.
For 2022, the GMC Acadia comes in four available trims: SE, SLT, the off-road-oriented AT4, and the exclusive Denali. With the elimination of lesser trims for 2022, standard features from the entry-level trim are bountiful. Two engines are available across the lineup, with the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder being standard. With this engine, 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque are at your command with standard front-wheel drive. Towing capacity for the 2.0-liter equipped with the V92 Trailering package increases the capacity to 3,300. An available 3.6-liter V6 engine opens up the range of capability to 310 horsepower with 271 lb-ft of torque, and both engines are paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity for the V6 engine increases to 4,000 lbs, and all-wheel drive is available for all trims.
As soon as you open the door to the welcoming interior of the 2022 Acadia, the quality of the build is immediately evident. Aluminum trim contrasts elegantly with the soft-touch materials and premium upholstery in the cabin large enough to seat seven. Enter the third-row seats with the touch of a button that tilts and slides the second-row passenger seat forward, even with an empty child seat latched in place. In-floor storage throughout the cabin provides hidden space to tuck items out of sight or keep the space clear to neatly fold away the rows of seats for extra cargo capacity. Pass-through storage beneath the center console in the front allows for items to be placed out of the way from either side, and a storage drawer accessed from the back of the center console provides second-row passengers more space for small-item storage.
The environment of the interior invites passengers into a quiet oasis on the road, with active noise cancellation, tri-zone climate control, and an available dual-pane skyscape sunroof to provide more light and overhead views. Drivers benefit from the ease of utilizing the push-button ignition and electronic shift, and both front seat passengers can warm up with heated seats. Available powered lumbar control for the driver can calm the fatigue of long drives, and the standard HD rearview camera delivers crystal clear views for safely backing out of parking spots and driveways. Upgrade the interior with leather seats and a leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel when choosing the SLT trim, and add features for the driver with a six-inch head-up display and auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Technology for all trims includes standard capability for wirelessly connecting your smartphone with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as utilizing the Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and texting through the six-speaker audio system. Use the eight-inch touchscreen to access other tech features such as standard SiriusXM All-Access and available WiFi hotspot settings. When on the road, let the available navigation system guide you safely back to your home, where you can use the available universal home remote to gain access to your garage, disengage your home security system, and turn on exterior lights to welcome your return. To relinquish the need for any phone cords, upgrade to wireless phone charging at any trim level, and enjoy the fuller experience of SiriusXM 360L, starting with the SLT trim.
Approaching the striking exterior of the 2022 GMC Acadia, your eye is drawn to the uniqueness of the bold grille, the signature GMC LED lighting, and upscale wheel designs available for each trim. Privacy in the rear seats is standard with deep-tinted glass, and access to the interior is as simple as walking up to the Acadia with your key fob to automatically unlock the doors. For hot and cold days, the remote start feature is available for all trims to get the climate comfortable for your departure. Shopping trips are simplified with the hands-free liftgate opened with a gesture of your foot beneath the bumper, available for all Acadia trims.
Take your 2022 Acadia into more plush territory with the available Adaptive Ride Control, which can be added to the SLT trim and is standard for the Denali. This system automatically dampens the suspension to adjust to imperfections in the road, smoothing the ride every two milliseconds. To aid in better visibility on foggy days, add the available LED fog lights to the SE, or utilize them as a standard feature on all other trims. Buyers expecting to tow light trailers with their 2022 Acadia will gain a factory-installed Class III hitch, seven-pin wiring harness, and Hitch Guidance with Hitch View when purchasing the Trailering Package for any trim.
All 2022 Acadia models come equipped with numerous driver-assist safety features, as well as several other safety features that come standard. Parents, in particular, will appreciate the rear seat reminder, which will issue chimes when the Acadia is turned off, a gentle prompt to check the rear seat if the rear doors were opened prior to departure. Teen Driver allows parents to set parameters for their younger drivers so they can’t exceed set speeds or volume controls. Other convenient features like IntelliBeam automatic high beams and Stabilitrak electronic stability and traction control make driving at night or in adverse conditions safer.
Driver-assist features automatically engage under specific conditions to assist the driver when the system tracks the potential for impact, either sending warnings for following distance or leaving your driving lane without a signal, or providing automatic emergency braking for pedestrians or vehicles in your path. Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert keeps you safer on the highway, and Front and Rear Park Assist help you in the parking lot. Increase awareness with the Safety Alert Seat available for all trims, or subscribe to the comprehensive OnStar services to assist you in case of an emergency. Anywhere you go, day or night, the 2022 Acadia has safety covered for you.
Take your 2022 Acadia into bolder territory with the AT4 trim, a distinct blend of appearance and capability that enhances the Acadia’s performance. Starting with the foundation on 17-inch gloss-black wheels, the all-terrain tires are powered by the standard V6 engine and exclusive twin-clutch all-wheel drive system for the most agile of all Acadia models. Active torque control delivers power to the wheels that need it most, allowing the AT4 to power over obstacles. The sporty black accents from the grille, gloss black roof rails, and black-capped mirrors are echoed on the black interior with exclusive premium black cloth or leather seats. Red accent stitching and badging further mark this trim as unique.
Buyers seeking luxury and refinement will want the range-topping Denali, unmatched in quality of materials and appearance for the 2022 Acadia. Standing tall on 20-inch machined aluminum wheels and facing the world with its broad signature grille in chrome, the 2022 Acadia Denali rises above the rest of the trims in pride. Exclusive interior and exterior badging mark this trim as significant, and chrome exterior accents draw the eye to the elevated design. Interior elements indicate the Denali as set apart from the pack with ash wood accents, burnished aluminum trim, and French stitching found only in the uppermost Acadia. Purchasing a Denali unlocks features available only to this trim level to take your 2022 Acadia into a truly exceptional space you can inhabit on the road.
