TRACTION SELECT
Acadia All Terrain is prepared for all sorts of weather and road conditions. With a quick turn of the Traction Select dial, Acadia can hone a variety of its systems – e.g. traction control, throttle mapping, shift points, and so on – for an optimal drive experience. Settings on the Traction Select knob dial include:

  • Two-Wheel Drive: Shifts Acadia All Terrain’s standard all-wheel-drive system into two-wheel drive for optimizing efficiency during normal conditions.
  • All-Wheel Drive – Allows Acadia All Terrain’s all-wheel-drive system to send power to rear wheels when slippage is detected in order to maximize traction. This mode is designed for use in normal driving situations on paved roads that are covered with water, snow, or ice. 
  • Off-Road – Optimizes traction in off-road conditions (gravel, sand, mud) at speeds under 50 mph, and will also engage all-wheel drive.
  • Sport –  Gives your vehicle a sportier ride and handling feel, as well as improved acceleration response.
  • Trailer/Tow– Changes shift points and engages all-wheel-drive (if equipped) to improve traction and acceleration when trailering.

TRAILERING CAPABILITY
The GMC Acadia All Terrain has a towing capacity of up to 4,000 lbs., which means you can easily bring something like a small camping trailer or a boat along for your next getaway. For more on this rating, along with some guidance points to consider when towing, check out GMC’s handy trailering guide.



TOWING CONVENIENCE
Acadia’s available Active Tow feature can help drivers easily line up a trailer hitch, or it can provide a quick view of the hitch while in motion in order to double-check connections. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Put the vehicle in REVERSE for Active Tow mode to appear in the Rear Vision Camera screen.

Step 2: You can choose to use a center line when trailering or show the normal rear guidelines.

Step 3: For a momentary view of the area behind your vehicle when Active Tow/Rear Vision Camera is not being displayed, you can select the Camera icon on the infotainment home screen.


FLEXIBLE CARGO HOLD
If you’re planning on packing a lot of gear during your next getaway, Acadia has you covered by way of a flexible cargo area and an array of available accessories designed to secure your belongings while on the go. Check out the Available Vertical Cargo Net, which helps keep items from shifting while in transit and attaches easily to the sides of your vehicle.
