In By Popular Demand: GMC Acadia and Terrain
If you’re looking for a midsize SUV from a brand that’s as serious about luxury amenities as it is about capability, then you need a GMC Acadia or Terrain. These two popular SUVs increased in sales by leaps and bounds for the first quarter of 2018, and that means they’re getting something right. GMC finished the first quarter with global SUV sales up 9.4 percent and Terrain sales alone up 38 percent. To meet increased demand, the company recently announced the addition of a third shift at its Spring Hill Assembly facility in Spring Hill, Tennessee, home of the GMC Acadia.

“Our redesigned Terrain and Acadia have found their stride in the market and our full-size Yukon and Yukon XL continue to lead the luxury full-size segment with premium appointments and features,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC. “This sales momentum will continue to be built on a strong product portfolio for our global markets.”
With the leveling off of gas prices and steady improvements that save fuel even on larger vehicles, SUVs are coming back into fashion and GMC was ready for it. Half of all drivers who are new to the brand choose a Terrain as their first GMC vehicle. In a segment that’s filled with many midsize SUVs that look the same, the Terrain is standing out with its premium trim options and affordable luxury. Drivers wanted more and they found it in the 2018 GMC Terrain.
The 2018 GMC Acadia is the mid-size SUV that is always a popular choice. The design team has listened to the drivers who have been our toughest audience and best teachers to provide you with a vehicle that’s perfectly tailored for the modern driver. Enjoy premium amenities like heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, as well as versatile seating and storage configurations with fold-flat second- and third-row seats. But it’s not all looks, under the hood is an available 3.6-liter V6 engine that’s a masterful balance of performance and efficiency.
The GMC SUV family is complemented by the industry’s only premium lineup competing in all three truck segments: midsize, full-size and heavy-duty. The Canyon, Sierra and Sierra HD Denalis all experienced sales growth in 2017, helping the brand achieve one of the highest average transaction prices in the industry.
The recently unveiled next-generation Sierra Denali and the off-road-capable Sierra AT4 will launch later this year, further strengthening the brand’s premium truck lineup. These new trucks are distinguished by bold design, segment-first technology and industry-leading truck box capability and functionality. The Sierra AT4 launches the all-new AT4 brand, which will be seen on every vehicle in the GMC lineup in the next two years.
