GMC teases the Acadia, set for NAIAS reveal image

We’re just a whisker away from the start of the 2016 North American International Auto Show and as such the automakers are in full teaser mode – GMC is bringing the 2017 Acadia.

The latest to make the jump to the deep mysteries of sharing teaser footage is General Motors’ specialist brand GMC, which is gearing up for the worldwide official introduction of the 2017 Acadia. The model will make its debut on January 12, the second press day of the North American International Auto Show, and the refreshed model is set to bring a new age of General Motors delivering large crossovers. We’re not treated to numerous details from this teaser image but we can clearly see the 2017 Acadia would make use of the latest LED taillight technology – while design cues will surely tie into the large chrome bar that houses the GMC badge.

Judging from the shots caught in the wild with the camouflaged prototypes, the 2017 GMC Acadia should also come with dual exhaust tips, a massive grille, and a more dynamic greenhouse. Other details that have perspired although GM likes to keep a closed lid on the model involve the use of Cadillac’s XT5 platform – extended to accommodate Acadia’s size difference. Also under the hood reports are placing an all-new 3.6-liter V6 while the base version could be light enough to make use of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant. We’ll know all the juicy details soon enough, as the model should be up for grabs this spring.
