The 2023 GMC Acadia  is a family-friendly medium-sized crossover vehicle designed to accommodate three rows of seats or up to 7 passengers. It was initially unveiled in 2007 as the first generation, and in 2017, the American company introduced the second generation, which was slightly smaller than its predecessor. Over the years, the car has undergone several updates, with the most recent one being for the 2023 model. In this update, the SL class was discontinued, and the SLE class became the new standard class.
