Congratulations on your decision to purchase a 2017 GMC Acadia. Now all you have to ask yourself is, “Which Acadia should I buy?”

GMC rolled out three different trim levels of the Acadia for 2017: the Acadia, the Acadia All Terrain, and the Acadia Denali. All three are fantastic, but there’s sure to be one that’s just right for you.

To help you decide which Acadia to buy, let’s break down the distinguishing features of each.


The baseline Acadia is the most affordable of the three siblings and also garners the best fuel efficiency at an impressive 21 city and 26 highway MPG.

This model provides many of the same impressive features that Acadia owners have come to love, such as an available 3.6L V6 engine, fold-flat second and third-row seats, an available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, and a noise-canceling interior.

The Acadia is for: First-time SUV buyers, those looking for the most value, or anyone who regularly carries multiple passengers and wants everyone to be comfortable.

Acadia All Terrain

As the name suggests, the All Terrain is specifically designed for off-road and multi-terrain environments. An advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system with Active Twin Clutch enhances driver control and keeps the Acadia All Terrain balanced and maneuverable on sand, gravel, and other unpredictable surfaces. These upgrades give you a comfortable and luxurious ride on the most rugged terrain.

The Acadia All Terrain is for: Those looking to truly utilize the “go anywhere” characteristics of an SUV without sacrificing luxury.

Acadia Denali

Driving the Acadia Denali means riding in style. A sculpted grille and chrome accents, leather-appointed seats, a real wood interior, and a standard 8-inch Color Touch Navigation screen with IntelliLink are just some of the features that combine to make the Denali an SUV that exudes luxury, sophistication, and style.

The Acadia Denali is for: Luxury sedan lovers who relish detail and all the perks.

Whether it’s value, performance, or style you’re after, the Acadia does not disappoint. The right Acadia for you is available at Moore Buick GMC in Jacksonville, North Carolina. See our full inventory of cars and SUVs for sale in Jacksonville and come in for a test drive today.
