The tail lights look taller and the car gets a new bumper as well. The AT4 also has a black chrome finish and interior goes well with it.

There is a different center console layout on the inside with a pushbutton shifter. The car also offers additional storage, which is always a welcome change. The highest end Denali variant also gets new trim choices and upholstery.

A New Engine

There is also a new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 engine which offers 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, thanks to the twin-scroll turbocharger.
For frugality, two of the four cylinders can be deactivated as well. The turbo engine comes installed with the SLT and Denali trim levels, while the V6 comes with the AT4 trim. The suspension has also been tweaked a little
The six-speed transmission has now been replaced with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The new transmission replaces the mechanical shift level of Acadia with an electronic shifter with different buttons and triggers.
