    GMC To Offer Old and New Acadias At dealers


    • Why you'll be seeing the old and new Acadias sitting next to each other on the dealer lot

    GMC isn't ready to say good-bye to the current Acadia. Automotive News reports that the current Acadia will be sold alongside the next-generation model starting this spring. GM spokesman Brian Gobel said both models will be sold for a limited time, although a timeframe wasn't given.

     

    Gobel explained the decision to keep selling the old Acadia was due to manufacturing. The current model is built at GM's Lansing, Michigan plant, alongside the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse. With the next-generation Acadia being built in Spring Hill, Tennesse, this leaves a huge gap in the production schedule for Lansing. For the time being, the current Acadia will continue to be built at Lansing till another product can fill the void.

     

    "Given the fact that those sister vehicles will continue their production, the current Acadia will continue to be built to offer another option for our customers," said Goebel.

     

    The older Acadia will be renamed to Acadia Limited starting in 2017.

    Very cool in fact. This literally kills the argument that some had about the size drop. Altho I will say that in truth... GM, if this was the plan, should have simply called the new Acadia "the Envoy." 

     

    In a twist of this.. I will also repeat that I am of firm belief that GM should re-purpose the SRX over at Cadillac as the XT3 until that vehicle actually shows up. The SRX is still a strong seller and still a very competent CUV. A simple rework of styling to make it appear more like the current A&S, and smaller and U have a nice interim small CUV

    pretty  hilarious.  on a GMC facebook page, the posters / commenters are railing all over GMC for downsizing the Acadia.  But of course, that was easy to predict.
