General Motors announced on Wednesday that it has increased prices by $1,000 on the 2013 GMC Acadia and the Acadia Denali.

For the 2013 model year, the GMC Acadia has new exterior styling and interior materials and will include standard features such as rear park-assist, a rearview camera and leather-wrapped steering wheel. GMC said most Acadia models will be equipped with the industry’s first front-center airbag, while the Denali will include standard equipment including a head-up display that shows current speed and other information on the windshield, side blind-zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert.

“The 2013 Acadia arrives with great momentum.
