2021 GMC Acadia Trims & Specs

Five models comprise the Acadia lineup for 2021: SL, SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali. A 2.5-liter four-pot starts things off on the SLE and SLE, paired with the front-wheel drivetrain, while a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is offered on the SLE and SLT, with a choice of FWD or AWD. Similarly, the V6 that comes standard on the AT4 and Denali is also available to the SLE and SLT, but it must be paired with AWD on the AT4. In any of the available configurations, a nine-speed automatic gearbox does the duty of managing the gears.

Riding on 17-inch wheels, the base model gets LED headlights but you need to upgrade to at least the SLT to get fog lights. Inside, you get a four-way manual driver’s seat, cloth upholstery, tri-zone climate control, and an eight-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system. Basic safety tech includes blind-spot monitoring, rear park assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change alert.

The SLE adds SiriusXM, while the SLT installs a hands-free power tailgate, forward collision avoidance, lane keep assist, HD Radio, and a premium Bose sound system. The Denali rounds things off with 20-inch wheels, a wireless charger, heated rear outboard seats, and a head-up display.
