Up front, the 2013 Acadia boasts a new grille set into a more vertical nose (reminiscent of the Granite,
anyone?), and buyers can now look forward to more attractive diffused
LED daytime running lights on both projector and HID headlight-equipped
models. At the back, the Acadia now wears wrap-around glass and a
redesigned spoiler. GM has also thrown in a few more wheel design
options in both 18- and 19-inch sizes.
Inside, the new Acadia offers upgraded materials, including details like
French stitching and red ambient lighting. High-zoot models will boast
aluminum trim work, as well.
More importantly, the 2013 Acadia will come with what GM calls the
industry's first center air bag. The system is designed to protect
drivers and front passengers in accidents where the impact is on the
opposite side of the vehicle. The bag inflates from the right side of
the driver's seat and stabilizes occupants during the crash.
