The GMC Acadia is a full-size crossover SUV from GM. The GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave share the new GM Lambda platform. The Acadia went on sale in the United States in December 2006, and in Canada in January, 2007. A Denali version of the Acadia debuted in 2010 as a 2011 model.
It is GMC's first front-wheel drive passenger vehicle and GMC's first crossover SUV. The Acadia features seating for eight, generous interior space, and either front or all-wheel drive.
A unibody construction helps lower center of gravity, compared to previous truck-based GM SUVs, reduces the risk of rollover accidents.
