Are we getting a 2024 Acadia AT4? It makes a lot of sense. Just a few days after capturing the refreshed 2024 GMC Acadia on film for the first time, we now have additional photographs showing the updated model with its own AT4 trim level.
Acadia AT4 Spy Photographs
Our spy photographer reports:
We caught the next-generation GMC Acadia testing in its off-road-focused AT4 trim for the very first time.
The new Acadia will ditch the current model’s midsize stature and move back into a full-size offering like the Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave.
Our latest encounter yields detailed shots from all angles, and captures the upsized Acadia in what appears to be its more rugged AT4 trim. This prototype signals its more off-road-focused intentions with more aggressive all-terrain rubber. In its move from the midsize to the full-size segment, this prototype for the future Acadia AT4 gets a bigger wheel and tire package. The current Acadia AT4 rides on 255/65R17 Continental TerrainContact A/T tires, while this 2024 Acadia AT4 prototype is fitted with 265/65 Goodyear Wrangler AT tires on larger 18-inch wheels.
The Chevy Traverse doesn’t currently offer an off-road-minded trim option, so the Acadia’s move back to the full-size segment will also bring a more rugged option into GM’s model-range—to counter the likes of the Ford Explorer Timberline (which rides on identically-sized Bridgestone Dueler A/T tires).
This new Acadia prototype showcases a long wheelbase, and a generous rear section for a comfortable third row and ample cargo capacity. The styling details are thoroughly covered in camouflage, but the Acadia prototype’s early placeholder lighting is consistent with GMC’s recent design conventions, suggesting a design influenced by the body-on-frame Yukon SUV.
The upsized Acadia is expected to reach the market next year, debuting for the 2024 model year.
