Our customers have high expectations for their vehicles, which is why every SUV we sell is packed with the latest technology, includes tons of safety and driver assistance features, and is built with the best materials inside and out. It's these high standards that have made us the number one GMC dealer in Georgia.
The 2022 GMC Acadia SLE is one of our most popular vehicles, and with good reason. The SLE is the base trim of the Acadia. But don't let that fool you; this SUV comes standard with many of our favorite features. With the timeless design of the exterior, along with the comfortable and spacious interior, this SUV checks all the boxes. With all of today's best entertainment and safety technology, tons of cargo space, and a premium feel, the Acadia SLE is a great companion for any driver. We're excited to be able to carry this SUV and share its details with our customers.
GMC has always built strong, enduring vehicles, and the 2022 Acadia SLE is no different. It's been designed with a smart, efficient powertrain meant to go the distance. The standard 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine fills you with excitement on your daily commute and long road trips alike. The turbocharged engine has an output of 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and the nine-speed automatic transmission seamlessly propels you in any road conditions. For handling, the Stabilitrak electronic stability control system with traction control helps to keep your GMC locked into every twist and turn.
Thanks to the turbocharger on the engine, the Acadia has extra oomph without compromising fuel efficiency. With gas prices rising, fuel economy is on everyone's mind. That's why GMC designed the Acadia SLE's engine to power up when you need it and to conserve fuel when you don't. The Acadia SLE has front-wheel drive standard, which contributes to its fuel efficiency. The 2022 Acadia SLE boasts an EPA rating of 22 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway, great figures for a gasoline SUV in its segment. The tank holds 19 gallons at once, so you can easily travel long distances without worrying about stopping for fuel.
We know many of our drivers have an adventurous spirit. That's why the Acadia SLE can easily be outfitted with accessories that turn it into a perfect ride for your getaway. Looking to bring gear that won't fit in your SUV? Add a tow hitch and bring along up to 3,500 lbs of additional equipment. Need more out of your Acadia? Add roof rack cross rails to secure even more cargo on the roof.
The cabin in the 2022 GMC Acadia SLE brings tons of value to the vehicle. While it's a midsize SUV, the expansive cargo volume and roomy cabin of the Acadia make it feel like you can fit just about anything. Comfortably seat up to seven passengers with the help of your plush second and third rows of seating. Those second and third rows of seats can also be folded down for a total of 79 cu.ft. of maximum cargo space. Smart Slide second-row technology makes moving those seats a breeze.
The third row adjusts with a 50/50 split when you need to fit longer items. For smaller items, there are plenty of handy cubbies throughout the Acadia, including pass-through under-console storage, a storage drawer in the back of the center console that's accessible from the second row, and a covered under-floor space in the trunk.
The Acadia SLE isn't only about space. It's also full of stylish touches to the interior that make it feel comfortable yet upscale. Inside, you'll find seats wrapped in premium cloth and ergonomically designed for lumbar support. The available eight-way power driver's seat easily adjusts to your ideal position. The fabric is durable and easy to clean, ideal for a busy family, and everyone can set their own preferred temperature thanks to standard tri-zone climate control, which utilizes multiple sensors placed strategically throughout the vehicle.
Entertainment plays a big role in the 2022 GMC Acadia SLE. The SLE features an available high-quality, Bose eight-speaker premium audio system that delivers all of your favorite music, podcasts, and audiobooks in perfect clarity. The controls on the dashboard and steering wheel are intuitively placed and easy for the driver to reach without distraction. A crisp, eight-inch diagonal touchscreen infotainment system comes standard, and built-in navigation is available. Driving with multiple passengers is no problem, thanks to the ample amount of USB ports to charge everyone's devices. Plus, there is an available WiFi hotspot so you can stay connected even on the go.
We know safety is a big priority for all of our drivers. That's why GMC designed the 2022 Acadia SLE with tons of safety and driver assist technologies so you can drive with confidence. This package of safety features is called GMC Pro Safety Plus. Your Acadia can also be programmed for OnStar and Connected Services that can be accessed via mobile app, phone, or the blue OnStar button in the cabin. The GMC Pro Safety Plus package goes above and beyond with its suite of nine safety and driver assistance features that work harmoniously to help you stay safe on the road.
GMC Pro Safety Plus includes Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, Front and Rear Park Assist, and IntelliBeam Auto High Beams. While many competitors offer similar packages, most charge extra for the safety features that GMC automatically provides on even the base trim of the 2022 Acadia. Plus, every Acadia comes standard with an HD Rear Vision camera to make reversing and exiting parking spots easier.
There is also a LATCH system for small children and Teen Driver for the older children in your life who are ready to hit the road. With Teen Driver, you can customize vehicle settings for your teen to encourage safe driving habits. This tool lets you limit certain distracting vehicle features or turn on other safety features to ensure your teen stays safe on the road. At your request, the Acadia SLE will even provide an in-vehicle report card with information on your teen's driving behaviors.
The 2022 GMC Acadia is thoughtfully designed, with timeless accents and appealing touches on both the exterior and interior. While certain aspects of the Acadia have been upgraded over the years, the classic shape remains. The interior features welcoming and durable materials, an intuitively designed dashboard, and an available two-panel power sunroof. Meanwhile, the exterior has brilliant lighting and a shape that appeals to anyone. The Acadia's styling is modern and sophisticated and will look great for years to come.
All three rows of seats are made of a soft-to-the-touch neutral fabric that feels comfortable during long drives. Inside, you'll find aluminum and woodgrain trim lining the doors and dashboard. The optional sunroof for the Acadia SLE features an express-open feature and two panels. The front panel slides fully open at the touch of a button, while the fixed rear panel has a sunshade to control how much light gets through.
The 2022 GMC Acadia SLE's exterior is equally impressive. Eye-catching 18-inch machined aluminum wheels include dark accents that really make them pop. It's also apparent that a lot of time and consideration went into the lighting. The Acadia's distinct set of exterior lights includes standard C-shaped LED signature headlamps, LED taillamps, and LED daytime running lamps to keep your SUV visible at all times.
