General Motors has finally began reinventing its largest crossover SUV lineup after nearly a decade on the market. Bowing first, the 2017 GMC Acadia boasts an all new chassis formed from thinner yet stronger high-strength steel, measures narrower and shorter, drops 700 pounds, and boasts a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder as the standard engine.

Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to haul seven passengers in high-end GMC comfort, but the eight-passenger seating configuration is no longer offered. The Acadia can also be configured to seat five or six, depending on seating packages.

“The all-new Acadia leverages GMC’s proven SUV experience to take on and shake up one of the largest vehicle segments, with a strong blend of design, technology and capability,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing.

GMC’s official stance on the resizing is that the new Acadia is better positioned between the midsize Terrain and the fullsize Yukon, while offering better maneuverability, driving dynamics, and fuel economy. Those are all fantastic achievements, but we wonder if GMC is making the right choice by decreasing interior volume.

The 2017 Acadia will surely sell very well regardless. The current Acadia, which has been on the market since 2007 and unchanged since its mid-cycle refresh in 2013, has continually sold extremely well. GMC moved 96,393 units during 2015 alone. The Acadia’s Buick and Chevrolet cousin, the Enclave and Traverse, sold 62,081 and 119,945 units respectively in 2015. It’s easy to see how important this platform is to The General.

Let’s dive into what the 2017 GMC Acadia is all about.

Update 02/16/2016: GMC has announced official pricing for the 2017 Acadia. Prices fall $1,905, giving the base SL-trim Acadia a starting price of $29,995. More details are found in the pricing section below.
