    Spying: Next-Generation GMC Acadia May Look the Same, But Will Drop Some Pounds

    It might look the same, but there are big changes coming for the next-generation GMC Acadia

     

    Car and Driver got their hands on a set of spy shots showing off the next-generation GMC Acadia crossover. This is an important model for GMC as it currently is the third best-selling model in the lineup with more than 80,000 Acadias sold in the past couple of years.

     

    So what do the pictures reveal? It seems GMC isn't changing the basic design of the Acadia's exterior. But the interior shows some drastic changes. The dashboard looks similar to the one used on the Canyon with a compressed centerstack and a large screen with GMC's Intellilink.

     

    The new Acadia along with its sister models, the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse, will use a new GM platform called C1XX or “Chi” platform. This platform will incorporate a number of weight-saving features, hopefully solving one of the biggest problems with GM's large crossovers; being a bit too heavy.

     

    Power will come from a newer version of the 3.6L V6 with over 300 horsepower. There is also talk of a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder. Transmissions will include a six and an eight-speed automatic.
