PROJECT
HISTORIC-SHIP REBUILDING —ALBANY, NY
KEEPING LIFE ON
COURSE.
IN THE 17TH
CENTURY OR the 21ST.
Can you rebuild a 400-year-old Dutch sailing vessel by hand, with only the help of volunteers?
You can if you never say never.
When a group of New York Capital District residents set out to reconstruct the Onrust (Dutch
for “Restless”), the first trading ship built in America, into a living (and floating) classroom,
they spent 3 years using authentic 17th-century Dutch building techniques to rebuild the
ship to its authentic 1614 specifications. With the help of GMC, they had the capability
they needed to haul materials, the resources they required to construct the engine room
and the perseverance it took to bring an important part of American history back to life.
So what does 17th-century shipbuilding
say about the engineering of the GMC Acadia?
That true craftsmanship is timeless. That the details are where you find the difference. And
if you dream of building something to stand the test, there’s no substitute for professional
grade. It was as true in the 17th century as it is in the 21st: The right transport can make all the
difference when you’re trying to keep life on course. GMC ACADIA.

Contributing skills, time and hard work, over 250 volunteers came together to help reconstruct America’s first
Dutch trading ship, the Onrust. Utilizing recently rediscovered authentic Dutch shipbuilding techniques, the
reconstruction isn’t merely a replica but an actual working 17th-century Dutch ship, built the same way the original
was some 400 years ago.

ENGINE
C H ASSIS AND S U SPENSI O N
P O W ERTRAIN
FEATURES AND THEIR BENEFITS
Engineered for responsiveness at all speeds, the 3.6L V-6 VVT in GMC Acadia
is the ideal blend of power and efficiency. With a high-performance 24-valve,
dual-overhead cam design, the 3.6L V-6 accelerates smoothly and quickly for
confident highway passing and merging. Yet its efficiency gives it surprising
highway fuel economy 1—the best of any eight-passenger SUV.
3.6L V-6 VVT (LLT)
HORSEPOWER:
TORQUE:
288 hp @ 6300 rpm
270 lb-ft @ 3400 rpm
C O NTR O L AND RESP O NSE
VARIABLE VALVE TIMING (VVT) This gives you the power of a highperformance engine with the low-speed response you need for situations
such as trailering or climbing steep inclines. This technology constantly
monitors and changes how the valves open and close to give you near-peak
levels of torque across the entire range of engine speeds.
TRANSMISSION
6-SPEED AUTOMATIC OVERDRIVE TRANSMISSION Designed to be an
interactive partner with the engine and control system, this transmission
chooses the best gear for economy or power based on your driving style.
For steep hills, bad weather or a really great driving road, all Acadia
models feature tap-up/-down gear selection with Driver Shift Control.
It gives you the ability to manually shift gears for optimal driver control.
E X TERI O R ST Y LIN G AND F U N C TI O NALIT Y
OIL LIFE MONITOR For long life and durability, nothing is more important
than changing your oil at the right time. GMC engineered the mystery out of
this essential service with the Oil Life Monitor. It calculates how much life your
oil has left, based on when and how you drive. Then it updates you with
a telltale on your Driver Information Center.
ONSTAR VEHICLE DIAGNOSTICS2 The peace of mind that comes from
knowing the condition of your Acadia’s key systems is as easy as checking
your e-mail. The OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics service that comes standard
with your 6-month trial subscription to OnStar can run hundreds of checks
of your Acadia’s engine, transmission, antilock brakes and more, then
organize the information into an easy-to-read monthly report. OnStar can
also run a check of your vehicle as you drive just by pressing the blue button
and asking the Advisor for an On-Demand Diagnostics check. That’s peace
of mind when you need it.
CH ASSIS AND S U SPENSI O N
WIDE STANCE /LONG WHEELBASE For the ride comfort of a full-size SUV,
the Acadia has the longest wheelbase measurement in its class, which
reduces fore-aft rocking at highway speeds. The wide track pushes the
wheels out to the edge of the body for the stability and sure-footed
cornering found in much smaller vehicles.
TRAILERING PACKAGE In addition to the luxury-sedan ride and the
exceptional maneuverability, Acadia is engineered with a maximum trailer
weight rating of up to 5200 lbs.3 When you order this available package,
you get the heavy-duty cooling system, a factory-installed trailer hitch
with a standard 2" receiver, attaching points for safety chains and a
seven-pin trailer harness with a built-in female connector.
STEERING
POWER RACK-AND-PINION STEERING For precise and accurate response,
Acadia features power rack-and-pinion steering. It provides a positive
on-center feel at highway speeds, as well as extra low-speed assist for
maneuvering in tight spaces. SL and SLE models feature constant-effort
power steering.
BRAKING
ANTILOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS) For confident stops in a variety of
conditions, every Acadia features four-channel antilock brakes. When the
brakes are applied, ABS can detect impending wheel lock-up, and then pulse
that wheel’s brake to prevent it. A four-channel system, it can activate
any combination of vehicle brakes to maintain control.
POWER four-WHEEL DISC BRAKES For outstanding braking performance
in virtually any conditions, power four-wheel disc brakes are standard on
every model. Their ample size offers the capacity for repeated stops, while
the smooth, progressive action of the brake pedal can help you to maintain
control in situations where only a small amount of brake force is required.
STRENGTH AND RELIABILITY
COMPONENTS
ALL-WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) For an extra measure of traction in wet or dry
weather, a fully automatic AWD system is available on all Acadia models. This
system sends power to each wheel based on available traction. Because the
AWD system is so well integrated with Acadia, it is almost imperceptible in
daily driving.
FULLY INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION For precise control and luxury-vehicle
refinement, GMC Acadia is engineered with a four-wheel independent
suspension. As the name implies, each wheel can act independently to
maintain road contact, which helps you stay in control. With sophisticated
shock absorbers and struts filled with nitrogen gas instead of conventional
fluid, the ride is smooth and controlled even on poorly maintained roads.
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM To make the most of available traction on
many road surfaces, traction control measures and compares the speed of
your wheels. If it senses one or more wheels starting to spin, such as on a
slippery surface, the system applies individual brakes and manages engine
power to slow the wheel down and maintain traction, so you can move forward
with a better sense of control.
DESIGN
ALUMINUM WHEELS The good looks are always standard on Acadia. SL and
SLE models have a handsome, deeply sculptured, 18" painted aluminum
five-spoke wheel, while SLT models roll on 19" ultra-bright machined
aluminum five-spoke wheels for a custom look with factory strength.
Exclusive 20" wheels4 set Denali apart with a flash of chrome-clad brilliance.
DISTINCTIVE GMC STYLING You can feel GMC’s century of experience the
instant you see it. From the handsome wheel arches and the bold mesh grille
to the powerful stance and rugged details, you can tell this is a true GMC, not
a passenger car masquerading as an SUV.
FOG LAMPS In driving conditions where high beams are impractical, fog
lamps can help to give you an extra measure of confidence. They throw extra
light down the road, but their beams spread low and forward to give a better
sense of what’s ahead.
HEATED POWER-RETRACTABLE MIRRORS For excellent visibility and extra
clearance, these available power mirrors are the ideal solution. They are
heated to remove snow, frost and fogging. On SLE models, they have a black
grain finish and fold manually. On SLT-2 and Denali models, they are colorkeyed to the body and power fold. SLT-1 is manual folding.

Capabilities vary by model. Visit onstar.com for details and

any option(s) necessary to achieve the rating, plus driver. The weight of other optional equipment,
passengers and cargo will reduce the maximum trailer weight your vehicle can tow. See your dealer for
details. 4Use only GM-approved wheel and tire combinations. For important wheel and tire information, go

HIGH-INTENSITY DISCHARGE HEADLAMPS There’s more to a light than on
and off. The available bi-xenon lamps throw a brighter, whiter light farther
down the road for better illumination and greater contrast than conventional
headlamps. This brighter beam is also more focused, so that more of its
lighting power is used to illuminate your path.
SMART SLIDE SEATING To make third-row entry and exit easier for people
of many sizes, Acadia has Smart Slide second-row seating that slides the
seats to their forward-most position, and then compacts them for space
with the same folding action you would use for a chaise lounge or beach
chair. For convenience, the Smart Slide feature operates with just one lever
and one hand.
LOW STEP-IN HEIGHT AND LOW LIFT-OVER HEIGHT Acadia is engineered to
take the work out of typical tasks, such as loading cargo or taking passengers.
The low height of the rear bumper makes loading luggage or heavy objects
easier, while the low step-in height lets people of every size enter without
climbing extra steps.

HIGH ROOF FIVE-DOOR DESIGN For the versatility and spaciousness of a fullsize SUV, GMC designed Acadia for easy access and long-distance comfort.
The door openings are generously sized for plenty of head room on entry, and
the liftgate opens high enough for full access to the rear opening.
30.75"
FOLD-FLAT FUNCTIONALITY For the impressive capacity of a full-size SUV,
the second- and third-row seats inside Acadia fold forward to create a flat,
uninterrupted load floor. The result of this flexibility is up to 116.9 cu. ft. of
cargo capacity, and a load floor that can accommodate a 4' x 8' sheet.5
DESIGN
ACOUSTICS AND NOISE SUPPRESSION To reduce road noise and control
wind noise, Acadia uses sophisticated sound-blocking and sound-deadening
techniques, including liquid-applied sound deadeners to fill even the most
minute gaps and sound paths.
CUPHOLDERS Acadia has two console-mounted cupholders and two in the
doors for driver and passenger, another two in the second row with one in
each door, plus two more molded into the side panels for the third row.
CLIMATE CONTROL—TRI-ZONE The available tri-zone climate control creates
individual areas for the driver, the front-seat passenger and the rearcompartment passengers. Second-row passengers get their own controls for
temperature and fan speed, so drivers can concentrate on the road.
CONNECTIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY
AIRCRAFT-INSPIRED HEAD-UP DISPLAY Acadia is the only crossover in
its class that has it available. Head-Up Display works by projecting important
information at eye level, so you can monitor vital functions without looking
down. Inspired by fighter aircraft technology, Head-Up Display projects speed
and rpm readings, turn signal and high-beam indicators, transmission
selection, outside air temperature and, when equipped with the available
navigation radio, Turn-By-Turn Navigation instructions.6
CONSOLE To help everything fall into place, Acadia’s convenient and spacious
center console gives you multiple storage compartments for the essentials
you rely on every day. The center floor console offers deep, concealed storage
for CDs or DVDs, MP3 players or other personal electronics. The padded
armrest slides fore and aft to help you stay comfortable, regardless of your
seating position.
DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER Staying in touch with the most important
information is as easy as pressing a button. The Driver Information Center
includes the odometer and A/B trip odometers, as well as a message center
that keeps you informed about vital vehicle functions and driving conditions.
FULL ANALOG GAUGE INSTRUMENTATION For quick, clear readings, nothing
beats the simplicity of traditional needle-and-dial gauges. All models include
a tachometer to monitor engine speed, an engine temperature gauge and
fuel indicator.
SEATING
SEATING CONFIGURATIONS GMC leaves the final passenger list to you. When
you choose eight-passenger seating, you get a sliding second-row threeacross seat that feels like anything but a bench. If you choose the available
seven-passenger configuration, the second row receives two captain’s chairs.
In either case, you get the convenience and space of fold-flat functionality
from the tailgate to the front-row seatbacks.
REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY One touch is all it takes to lock or unlock your
Acadia or flash its lights and sound the horn to help you locate it in a busy
parking lot. It works at a range of up to 195 feet to unlock your doors for fast
entry, saving you and your passengers from unwanted exposure to wind, rain,
snow or sleet.
REMOTE VEHICLE START Warm up—or cool off—your Acadia for up to 10
minutes without leaving the door. This available feature is capable of starting
your vehicle from up to 195 feet away, so your Acadia’s interior will begin
adjusting to your preset temperature. With tri-zone automatic climate
control, the system can automatically heat or cool the interior based on
outdoor temperatures.

ULTRASONIC REAR PARKING ASSIST This available system sends out
ultrasonic waves from the rear bumper that function like radar to alert
you to certain objects, buildings or people who are within range of your
rear bumper. The closer you are, the faster it beeps, to give you a clear
signal that can help you operate the vehicle with maximum care.

TURN-BY-TURN NAVIGATION Drive with more confidence and certainty.
OnStar Turn-By-Turn Navigation is built into your Acadia. It’s simple —all you
have to do is push one button and ask the OnStar Advisor to download
directions to your Acadia. Turn-By-Turn is also smart, because an
automated voice calls out every turn as you need it.
ONSTAR eNAV WITH GOOGLE™ MAPS AND ONSTAR eNAV WITH
MAPQUEST.COM™ Want to get a head start on a trip? Start by checking out
your destination on Google Maps or mapquest.com. With OnStar eNav, just
click the “Send” link on the Web site, and it will be sent to your vehicle. When
you’re ready to head out, simply retrieve the destination and directions will be
downloaded to your vehicle based on your location, with nothing to type on
the screen and no maps to hold.
DESTINATION DOWNLOAD Looking for a destination in your vehicle’s screenbased navigation system? OnStar will do it for you. Simply press your blue
OnStar button, and you will be connected with a trained Advisor who will
download your directions to your Acadia’s screen-based navigation system.
You can also have destinations downloaded on the go—no need to pull over
to enter new addresses. It’s an enhancement to Navigation that makes
screen-based navigation systems easier and faster to use.
SA F ET Y
o n s ta r
HANDS-FREE CALLING WITH VOICE-ACTIVATED DIALING OnStar HandsFree Calling is built into your Acadia. Just push a button, call out the number
and you’re free to keep your eyes on the road. It’s reliable, because it is
specially designed for better connectivity and fewer dropped calls in areas
with limited cellular reception.
ONSTAR remotelink APP The OnStar RemoteLink app offers an amazing
level of control and connection with your vehicle. After downloading
and registering the app, GMC owners with an eligible vehicle can use
their iPhone® or Android™-based mobile devices to control their vehicle
from their phone and perform specific commands—like unlocking their
doors—remotely. You can lock/unlock your doors from any distance, start
your vehicle remotely,10 sound your horn and flash your lights to help
locate your vehicle or contact an OnStar Advisor, Roadside Assistance
or your preferred dealer. To learn all about all the great features available,
go to onstar.com.
DAYTIME RUNNING LAMPS Let other drivers know where you are. By running
the low-beam lamps in daytime, you can gain recognition by other drivers
from a greater distance, giving you an extra margin of security.
DUAL-STAGE FRONTAL AIR BAGS AND SIDE-IMPACT AIR BAGS11 To help
reduce the risk of injury to driver and front passengers, the dual-stage frontal air
bags in Acadia have sensors that gauge the severity of a crash, then determine
whether to employ one or two levels of inflation. Acadia also features a
Passenger Sensing System for the outboard front passenger that automatically
turns off the air bag if the passenger is under the appropriate weight.
VEHICLE SECURITY
STOLEN VEHICLE ASSISTANCE If your Acadia is ever stolen, OnStar can help
locate it after verification with law enforcement. OnStar can use built-in GPS
technology to help to locate it, prevent it from restarting with Remote Ignition
Block or, if the vehicle is in use, engage the Stolen Vehicle Slowdown
technology to help police recover it quickly and safely.
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE9 If the unexpected happens on the road—you’re
stranded, run out of gas or have a flat tire—one push of the OnStar button can
immediately connect you to an Advisor, ready to help any hour of the day or
night. OnStar can use GPS technology to pinpoint your location and connect
you to a service provider. No guessing about where you are or what to do.
REMOTE DOOR UNLOCK It’s happened to everyone. But there is an easy
solution. If you get locked out of your Acadia, OnStar can help. After verifying
your account, an OnStar Advisor can send a signal to your Acadia that usually
unlocks the doors within minutes.
REMOTE HORN AND LIGHTS Say you’re in a large parking area, and you just
can’t remember where you parked. Just call the toll-free number and OnStar
can send a remote signal to flash your lights and sound your horn to help you
locate your Acadia.
DRIVER CONFIDENCE
AUTOMATIC CRASH RESPONSE If your Acadia is in a crash, built-in sensors
can automatically send an alert to OnStar. An OnStar Advisor is immediately
connected to your vehicle to help you. Even if you aren’t capable of responding,
the Advisor can use GPS technology to locate you and request that emergency
help is sent right away.
CRISIS ASSIST During severe weather or other natural disasters, OnStar can
offer assistance and help you navigate your way to safety. Just push the red
OnStar emergency button and our specially trained Crisis Assist Team moves
quickly to help you. OnStar can pinpoint your location and provide up-to-date
information from public safety authorities, request that help be sent to you or
even contact family members or loved ones.
EMERGENCY SERVICES If someone in your Acadia needs emergency
help, the OnStar emergency button gives you a priority connection to a
specially trained Advisor at any time, day or night. OnStar uses GPS
technology to pinpoint your location and can request police, fire or
medical support be sent right away. The Advisor can also stay with you
on the line until help arrives.
HEAD CURTAIN SIDE-IMPACT AIR BAGS11 These air bags unfurl from the roof
rail like a protective curtain for outboard passengers and can be activated by
either rollover sensors or side-impact sensors.
SIDE-IMPACT AIR BAGS11 To help protect the thorax and pelvic regions of the
driver and outside front passenger in a side-impact collision, Acadia models
include standard side-impact air bags mounted on the driver and outside
front passenger seats.
LATCH CHILD SEAT ANCHORING SYSTEM Make it easier to properly install
a child seat. LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Top tethers for CHildren.
It means that a LATCH-equipped child seat will install to specially designed
retainer hooks in your Acadia. It also enables a child seat top tether strap
to be attached that helps limit movement in a forward crash to help reduce
the chance of injury.
PASS-KEY III+ THEFT DETERRENT SYSTEM Preventing unauthorized
starting attempts in your Acadia comes down to a tiny chip found in your
ignition key. It functions as an electronic “fingerprint” that disables your
starting system if it detects a theft attempt is underway.
REINFORCED STEEL SAFETY CAGE DESIGN Acadia’s robust body-frame
integral structure is engineered to help maintain the integrity of the
passenger compartment in the event of a collision.
STABILITRAK STABILITY CONTROL SYSTEM To help you stay in control when
the road is loose, snowy, icy, wet or uneven, StabiliTrak uses a network of vehicle
sensors to monitor how your Acadia is responding to your steering and braking
commands. If the system determines your vehicle is not responding properly, it
can pulse the brakes or reduce engine power to help you stay on the path being
steered. StabiliTrak is not a substitute for common sense; please drive carefully
within the limits of the road conditions and your vehicle’s capabilities.
TIRE PRESSURE MONiTORING SYSTEM12 Properly inflated tires are critical
to your comfort, vehicle control and economy. Tire Pressure Monitoring uses
tiny sensors inside the wheel to “broadcast” tire pressure to your vehicle,
which alerts you to their status and inflation level through the Driver
Information Center. If you subscribe to OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, this
information is part of their monthly e-mail update, or if you have the OnStar
RemoteLink app, you can check the status from your smartphone.
9
Roadside service provided by Cross Country. 10Requires factory-installed remote start. 11Air bag inflation
can cause severe injury or death to anyone too close to the air bag when it deploys. Always use safety belts and
the correct restraint for your child’s age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with the Passenger Sensing
System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat.
Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with a passenger air bag. See
the Owner’s Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information. 12Does not monitor spare
tire. RemoteLink requires active OnStar subscription.

OnStar is a core asset of your Acadia. Benefiting from more than
a decade of innovative development, it is both a highly advanced
technology —fully integrated within the vehicle — and a warm human
service. Standard on all Acadia models are 6 months of the OnStar Directions &
Connections Plan, including the convenience of Hands-Free Calling. It also includes
Automatic Crash Response, Stolen Vehicle Assistance, link to Emergency Services,
Roadside Assistance, Remote Door Unlock, OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics, Crisis Assist and
Remote Horn and Lights. OnStar services require vehicle electrical system (including
battery), wireless service and GPS satellite signals to be available and operating for
features to function properly. OnStar acts as a link to existing emergency service
providers. Visit onstar.com for coverage maps, details and system limitations. Services
vary with conditions.
Ha n d s - F r e e Ca l l i n g
Available OnStar Hands-Free Calling capability is built into your Acadia. It’s there when
your cell phone is unavailable, its battery is low, you can’t reach it easily or you left it
home or in the office. Your Hands-Free Calling system is the right choice whenever you
need an easy way to make and receive calls—at the touch of the phone icon on the rearview
mirror or the steering-wheel-mounted controls. Voice-activated dialing is convenient
because you don’t have to dial when you are at the wheel. And Hands-Free Calling is
reliable because it’s specially designed for better reception and fewer dropped calls in
areas of limited cellular reception.
O n S ta r t u r n - b y-t u r n n av i g at i o n
Standard on all Acadia models are 6 months of the OnStar Directions & Connections Plan
that adds innovative, easy-to-use Turn-by-Turn Navigation plus Information

simply tell the OnStar Advisor your intended destination, and directions will automatically
be sent to your Acadia. If you drive off-course, the system can reroute you to your intended
destination. An automated voice then guides you turn-by-turn until you arrive at your
destination. Turn-by-Turn Navigation is further enhanced with eNAV, allowing you to send
Google™ Maps and MapQuest™ directions directly to your vehicle. No need to print out
directions; just call them up with simple voice commands.

showroom. They’re designed, engineered and built to get things done, to defy the impossible and
to never say the job is over until you’ve overachieved. This is why GMC has joined with the
people and organizations you’re about to meet. People who are making a difference in their
communities and effecting real change. From resurrecting a historic treasure to helping
disabled athletes pursue their dreams, GMC is proud to present these stories of what can
really happen in life when you never say never.
