2013 GMC Acadia
2013 GMC Acadia

New For 2013

The Acadia is refreshed for 2013 with a new exterior design and new technological and safety features such as blind-spot monitoring, IntelliLink voice-activated infotainment, a front center air bag, and a standard rearview camera. The exterior comes in several new colors, including champagne silver metallic, iridium metallic, and Atlantis blue metallic; the interior can be had in light titanium, dark cashmere, or cocoa dune.


For 2013, the Acadia is back with some changes and updates to keep the venerable family hauler fresh. A new rounded yet butch front end holds the same 288-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine (with up to 5200 pounds of towing capacity) as before, but the transmission gains automatic downhill braking in all modes and some new controls. GMC fiddled with the suspension for more ride comfort. On the inside, the Acadia has a new front center air bag for driver and front passenger protection, new ambient lighting and interior materials, a more refined look and feel, and available IntelliLink voice-activated infotainment with GPS navigation. A rearview camera is standard, and the 2013 model adds new safety features such as blind-spot monitoring and backup cross-traffic alert. With a 60/40-split second row, the Acadia can hold up to eight passengers, but the capacity drops to seven when you select captain’s chairs for the second row in lieu of a bench. The Denali model gets the biggest wheels along with a panoramic sunroof, a chunkier lower-body aero kit, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a heated-and-cooled eight-way power driver’s seat. All in all, the Acadia—like its siblings, the Chevrolet Traverse and the Buick Enclave—proves to be good competition for other segment entries like the Honda Pilot and the Mazda CX-9.


Front, front center, side, and side curtain air bags for all rows are standard. ABS, stability and traction control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system are also standard. Denali models receive standard hill-hold braking and throttle override, which cuts power if the brakes and the gas are applied at the same time.

You'll like:

  • Seating for seven or eight
  • Decent fuel economy

You won't like:

  • Slightly brutish styling
  • Less power than Terrain’s V-6

While it's hard to pin General Motors' post-bankruptcy success on any one model or family, it's also hard to deny that the Lambda platform (Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and GMC Acadia) has been a bright spot for the General. The family of 7- or 8-passenger crossovers lost one of its own during the 2009 bankruptcy -- the Saturn Outlook -- but managed to carry kids, dogs, groceries, and an embattled car company through an era of liquidation and government control in equal measure.

Prices are increasing on the 2013 GMC Acadia lineup by more than $1000 compared to the 2012 model, GM has announced. Of course, the Acadia also has revised interior and exterior styling as well as a few new features. The base-model Acadia will cost $34,875 and the more premium Acadia Denali will carry a $46,770 MSRP.
