It’s been a long time since GM has had a performance SUV. With pressure from Ford, with their all new Ford Explorer ST Turbo, GM is not ready to be outdone. Introducing the new 2023 GMC Acadia GT Twin Turbo (maybe being released as a 2024 mode).
This new GMC Acadia GT Twin Turbo is expected to have a high output V6 engine that makes 472 horsepower and a 10 speed automatic transmission. I’m estimating the torque is going to be in the neighborhood of 500 ft lbs. Fed through an AWD system, the Acadia is going to be a dream for performance SUV enthusiasts and is going to likely be easy to tune. Expect GMC Acadia GT’s with 600+whp from bolt on performance parts.
And don’t expect GM to stop there. We expect the Acadia GT will also have a twin in the Cadillac CT4-V that will offer more luxury and more performance.
With a rumored 472 horsepower 3.6 liter V6 in the 2024 GMC Acadia GT, it will likely be one of the fastest performance SUV’s, competing with the way less powerful Ford Explorer ST, Durango SRT and the much more powerful Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and SRT8s. GMC is going out with a bang before all new performance SUVs will go the route of all electric such as the Tesla Model Y Performance and Model X Plaid.

What’s your thoughts, reviews and opinions on this new redesigned GMC Acadia? Would you buy one? Do you think i will be best in class? Leave your review below!
I think a larger, Acadia GT with a turbo V6 would be a great ride- but I haven’t seen in mentioned anywhere else. Also, do anyone know if they will be using the HiPer strut front end to better handle the power and performance?
