For rich interior comfort and a smooth ride, big families love the three-row 2019 GMC Acadia. There's a lot to love about the Acadia. Inside, the clean-cut cabin offers easy-to-reach controls and family-friendly head and leg room. The Acadia also comes standard with a long list of tech features, giving you the latest in smartphone integration and a robust supply of safety gear. This crossover also combines impressive power with ride comfort, while also offering an all-wheel drive option on all but the base model.
What's the 2019 GMC Acadia seating capacity?
Seating capacity depends upon trim level. The 2019 GMC Acadia SL comes standard with three rows of seating to accommodate up to seven passengers. The Acadia SLE-2 trim and up feature standard second-row captain's chairs, reducing seating to six. However, you can add a second-row bench seat to these models to bring capacity back up to seven.
If you don't need the extra seating, you can also transform your Acadia into a two-row, five-passenger crossover. Note that five-passenger models come standard with dual-zone climate control with rear air vents instead of the tri-zone system of three-row models.
What are the 2019 GMC Acadia trim levels?
There are technically four 2019 GMC Acadia trim models, two of which - the SLE and SLT - are divided into two sub-trims.
Acadia SL: The base model is special-order-only, which means you will have to wait for it to be built and won't find it at the dealership. However, the SL does offer a robust list of standard features. Big on convenience, this trim offers keyless ignition and entry. Inside, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and tri-zone automatic climate control add luxury to your daily drive. The Acadia SL is also stacked with tech features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration technology displays apps like Messages and Maps on the Acadia's 7-inch touchscreen, so you can use these features without looking away from the road. In addition to emergency telematics, the OnStar system includes 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Acadia SLE-1: You WILL find this model at your local dealership, so there's no need to wait. The SLE-1 adds to the SL's standard features by tacking on LED running lights and satellite radio, adding additional levels of safety and entertainment options. The addition of rear floor mats also helps to protect the carpet from your family's adventures.
Acadia SLE-2: When you upgrade to this trim, you'll enjoy an even longer list of modern features. Use the remote engine start to cool down your cabin as you cross the parking lot. When winter hits, heated front seats treat you to a cozy morning commute. You can also add blind-spot monitoring to this trim to help you switch lanes without any issue.
Acadia SLT-1: This trim comes standard with the above items while upgrading your luxury experience with leather upholstery and a premium eight-speaker Bose audio system. On road trips, your family can use this Acadia's household-style power outlet to charge laptops.
Acadia SLT-2: This Acadia trim adds both luxury and utility. The Acadia SLT-2 comes standard with the V-6 engine and trailering package, so you can tow your boat to the docks in style. The heated outboard middle-row seats keep your kids cozy for the long haul. This trim also introduces a number of high-tech safety features, including low-speed automatic emergency braking and lane departure mitigation.
Acadia Denali: The top-of-the-line Acadia is for stylish shoppers. Chrome roof rails, exclusive grille design, and polished wheels help this trim stand apart from the rest. Inside, ventilated front seats and a heated, power-adjustable steering wheel maximize comfort levels. The Acadia Denali, like the other Denali trims across the GMC line, offers the best of the best that the Acadia has to offer. If you're looking for the luxury SUV ride, this is the trim for you.
What's the 2019 GMC Acadia towing capacity?
With the V6 engine and trailering package, the Acadia can tow max loads of 4,000 pounds. That's good news for boat owners. With the four-cylinder engine, towing capacity drops to 1,000 pounds, which is still enough muscle to get your Jet Ski into the surf. Shoppers should note that the trailering package is standard for the top-trim SLT-2 and Denali models and optional for the SLE-2 and the SLE-1 with the V6 engine.
