Welcome to Jim Ellis Buick GMC Atlanta
The GMC Acadia had big shoes to fill when it was first introduced in 2006, as it replaced not one but three other GMC vehicles: the Safari, Envoy, and Pontiac SV6. Thus, the Acadia became GMC's first entry-level SUV with a truck vibe, and it was the brand's first front-wheel drive passenger vehicle and its first crossover SUV.
That's a lot of pressure for one vehicle, but the Acadia didn't back down. It continued to shift and change through the years, adding features that today's drivers not only needed but expected. This included emphasizing safety and connectivity to stay in contention with other vehicles in its class—and today, three generations later, it looks like GMC handled the pressure well enough because the 2024 GMC Acadia is a diamond.
The newest Acadia is bigger and better than ever, with a redesign that focuses on better utilizing its cargo space, a roomier interior, and more effective third-row functionality. Altogether, these changes make the new Acadia a top contender for families that need a larger vehicle for their everyday lives. We have the Acadia in stock here at Jim Ellis Buick GMC of Atlanta, and our knowledgeable sales team can help you understand the changes that punctuate this new generation.
We can also help you determine whether a front- or all-wheel drivetrain is most suitable, as well as explore which trim level best fits your needs. Our dealership boasts a state-of-the-art service center, so we'll still be here for you after the sale, helping to keep your Acadia on the road with preventative maintenance and more. So, is the 2024 Acadia the answer to your family's needs? Find out for yourself.
One of the main reasons families and individuals alike choose an SUV is the flexible space they offer for both passengers and cargo. Whether your cargo includes football gear, wholesale groceries, or treasures you find at the local thrift store, having extra space when you need it is key.
With this new generation, the Acadia offers more cargo space, as well as effective ways to manage that cargo. Plus, the available power-folding third-row seat makes it easier to load and unload your cargo. So, just how big is it? With a larger body all around, the 2024 Acadia received a 23.4% increase in cargo capacity compared to the 2023 version; this means that you can have all three rows upright and still have up to 23 cu.ft. of cargo space on hand.
In addition, the 2024 Acadia has room for seven to eight passengers depending on your configuration of the middle row, and it boasts class-leading legroom and headroom in the front row, giving you the space you need for taller occupants. This increased space is due to the Acadia growing larger all around, with a longer wheelbase and wider frame. Essentially, this generation makes the midsize Acadia one of the biggest in its class.
GMC's design team focused on comfortability beyond legroom and headroom, creating a seating plan that allows the back row passengers to bypass common motion sickness with the help of a lower beltline and repositioning of essential framework parts, as well as enlarging the back windows for better visibility.
These changes are significant when you regularly haul more than a few people or things. GMC's attention to detail ensures you're getting a well-rounded vehicle that ticks boxes you might not have even considered. If space is something you and your family are missing in your current vehicle, stop by our lot and test drive the new Acadia today to see how it fits your lifestyle.
Another factor to consider when choosing a new vehicle is safety. This is important regardless of how many people you routinely drive with, be it solo or with a full house. For years, GMC has focused on creating vehicles that support drivers through diverse road and weather conditions, and the new Acadia boasts some of the industry's latest innovations. The following are but a few of what comes standard.
Blind Zone Steering Assist: This system alerts you to objects in your blind spot and assists you with resistant nudges to your steering wheel when you can't respond in time.
Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking: Navigating narrow roads can be tricky. This system helps you steer clear of pedestrians and bicyclists who may venture too close to your lane, applying the brakes when needed to avoid a collision.
Reverse Automatic Braking: While the Acadia offers a camera that assists you when reversing, there are still things that might go undetected. This system helps in those scenarios, automatically applying the brakes to keep you and others safe.
Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking: How many times have you let off the gas when the light turns green, only to apply the brakes quickly as someone blows through a red light? This driver assistance feature supports your braking, giving you added assurance if you're unable to respond in time.
Other standard features include Rear Cross Traffic Braking, Rear Pedestrian Alert, Speed Limit Assist, Side Bicyclist Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition, and more. In addition, the 2024 Acadia makes available General Motors' Super Cruise; this dynamic feature is the future of driving, affording you hands-free cruising on more than 400,000 miles of compatible roads throughout North America. Super Cruise is available on the Elevation Premium, AT4, and Denali trims. Talk to our team about Super Cruise and for a demonstration of how it works.
It's easy to see why Acadia has been awarded both quality and satisfaction awards in recent years, including the "Most Ideal Overall Vehicle" in 2020 by AutoPacific, the "Total Quality Award" in 2022 by Strategic Vision, and consistent five-star crash safety ratings from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration.
Always a paramount concern with General Motors, the 2024 Acadia boasts the latest automotive technology features, keeping you and your passengers connected, content, and entertained during the drive. Connectivity becomes even more important as we spend more time in our vehicles in an increasingly in-contact world.
Some noted features you'll enjoy are the standard 15.0-inch premium GMC infotainment touchscreen, the 11.0-inch driver information center, and Google Built-In options. These three combine to keep you abreast of new information during your trip, from media playback to messages you receive to diagnostic factors that keep your Acadia running as it should.
You'll also have access to up to nine camera views to ensure your vantage comprises all 360 degrees. These camera views include a front, front top-down, rear top-down, front-side view, the classic rearview, and more. Each of these views works in concert with the Acadia's driver assistance features to ensure you get when you're going with confidence.
Other technological perks you can find in the new 2024 GMC Acadia include an available configurable 8.0-inch diagonal heads-up display, seamless connection to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an available wireless charging pad, a Smart Sense Liftgate, and remote start. From the minute you slide into the driver's seat, you'll see that the list is long and varied—and even longer with a higher trim level.
This focus on technology extends outside the Acadia, too, with the ability to connect your smartphone to your vehicle via myGMC. This innovative app lets you schedule service appointments, customize your connectivity settings, gain valuable insight about diagnostics, and even start your car with a tap when properly equipped. The myGMC app keeps you up to date and gives you peace of mind; ask our team how it works to get the most out of your ownership.
