    GMC has announced the pricing for the new Acadia which begins at $34,875* (includes a $825 destination charge).

    All Acadias come standard rear park Assist, a rear-view camera, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, color touch radio, USB port, signature LED daytime running lights and interior ambient lighting.

    Most Acadia models will come with GMC's Intellink infotainment system and a front-center airbag, which provides some protection between driver and front seat passenger in a crash, or hold the driver in place if he or she is alone in the vehicle.

    Jumping into the top of the line Acadia Denali nets you head-up display, blind spot monitoring system and GMC's new Rear Cross Traffic Alert system.

    Power for the Acadia will come from a 3.6L direct-injected V6 producing 288 HP and 279 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is rated at 17 City/24 Highway for front-wheel drive models and 16 City/23 Highway.

    2013 GMC Acadia Priced at $34,875

    New three-row crossover arrives with updated styling, new technology

    DETROIT – The 2013 GMC Acadia three-row crossover SUV launches this fall with a suggested retail price of $34,875, including a destination charge of $825. The upscale Denali trim – originally added to Acadia for the 2011 model year – will return with a long list of standard equipment for $46,770, including destination.

    In addition to new styling and upgraded interior materials, every 2013 Acadia will include new standard features such as Rear Park Assist, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a Color Touch Radio with HD radio, USB port, signature LED daytime running lights, and interior ambient lighting.

    Most Acadia trim levels will come standard with IntelliLink connectivity and the industry's first front-center air bag, which is designed to protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes. Acadia Denali's standard equipment includes a power tilt and telescoping steering column, Head-Up Display, Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

    "The 2013 Acadia arrives with great momentum," said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC Marketing. "Our design and engineering updates add even more value to an award-winning vehicle that just saw its best August ever, with retail sales up 35 percent."

    Acadia is a segment leader in retained value, defined as the projected residual value of a vehicle after five years of ownership. Both Edmunds.com and ALG have named the 2012 Acadia to their respective lists of the industry's residual value leaders.

    GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, and is one of the industry's healthiest brands. Innovation and engineering excellence is built into all GMC vehicles and the brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC is the only manufacturer to offer three full-size hybrid trucks with the Yukon, Yukon Denali SUVs and the Sierra pickup. The Sierra Heavy Duty pickups are the most capable and powerful trucks in the market.

    Pricey, but it seems as if GMC is applying the Terrain approach to the new Acadia - no base model (as compared to the Equinox trim lineup). I see that as a good thing, because why offer a SL model when Chevy already covers that ground with the Traverse LS? GMC is supposed to be upscale from Chevy, and having lease leader models like the SL isn't the way to approach the market.

    I'm interested in checking out the '13 Acadia when they hit the dealer's lots. I was a fan of the Saturn Outlook and liked the look of the new '13 Acadia when it debuted on this year's auto show circuit.

    There's a typo in your article.

    You state:

    GMC has announced the pricing for the new Acadia which begins at $34,875* (doesn't include a $825 destination charge).

    Press release states:

    DETROIT – The 2013 GMC Acadia three-row crossover SUV launches this fall with a suggested retail price of $34,875, including a destination charge of $825. The upscale Denali trim – originally added to Acadia for the 2011 model year – will return with a long list of standard equipment for $46,770, including destination.

    • Have to say that this is one of the best write ups I have seen on a state-by-state ability to see what your state tax credit is for EVs. Every electric vehicle tax credit rebate available, by state (electrek.co)
    • Yes the Kent IKEA is still there, none in the north end. I agree with you, hate the maze, hate the cheap stuff they sell, was not willing to wait in a long line to try the food, so who knows if I would like it. Over all, my son likes IKEA and I think it is because it is cheap. I would say Acura took till 2022 to fix their issues with the RDX and MDX.  My sister inlaw, wifes sister has a 2019 of each. She drives the MDX and her husband drives the RDX. Both have had all types of electrical issues, water leak issues and drivability issues that took till this year to resolve. Both are retired and on a fixed income now otherwise they say they would trade them in on something else, not an Acura. Maybe they are just unlucky, but I will say that I think Acura built a name and then went cheap to maximize profits from the line.
    • I would like to introduce you to the 2019 Acura RDX: the one a lot of people say to stay away from.  It took Acura at least a year to correct those issues in time for the 2021 model.
    • First of all, 800V is well supported for those fast chargers and EVs that support it as they do charge in a fraction of the time and weight less than a 400V system. Yes, 800V costs more now, but like all things, economy of scale brings it down. GM, Porsche, VW, Audi and BMW have all acknowledge it as well as Kia and Hyundai and why Honda went with the Ultium 800V system for their EVs. The reason the Equinox will start around $30,000 is due to the mass production bringing costs down. As far as Charging at home, yes if you're only going CHEAP with 110V charging, you will be lucky to pull down 10kWh charging. If you have a proper 220V charger installed, they are 50 AMPs and do charge much, much faster. Yes, there are 220V 38/40 AMP chargers, but the ones from the OEMs as well as ChargePoint that are sold or included are all 220V 50 AMP chargers. Even Amazon sells them, but you get what you pay for. This is in its infancy and so nothing is perfect yet, but we have specs to get there and those that do invest get out of it what they expected. Those that go cheap, well, your mileage will vary.
