Last year's GMC Acadia was no slouch in the features department, but the folks at GM apparently weren't satisfied and have included several new features for the 2009 edition of the GMC Acadia.
The 2009 GMC Acadia comes with a wide range of standard features, whether in SLE or SLT trim. Edmunds reviewers proclaim that "the level of standard equipment in the Acadia is comprehensive," and Consumer Guide reports that the list includes "front and rear air conditioning w/rear controls, OnStar assistance system," and full power accessories. The upscale SLT trim adds "tri-zone automatic climate controls" and a "Bose sound system," along with a "wireless cell phone link," according to Consumer Guide. Kelley Blue Book says that an "AM/FM/CD stereo with six speakers and MP3 capability and XM Satellite Radio" is also included as standard fare on both models.
In addition to the standard features found on the 2009 GMC Acadia, GMC has included a lengthy list of options to satisfy discerning buyers. Headlining these options, according to Cars.com, are "leather seats, ultrasonic parking assist, a DVD-based navigation system and a Bose 5.1 surround sound audio system." Consumer Guide also finds that some new features for 2009 "are a wireless cell phone link, heated and cooled front seats, and satellite radio with real-time traffic updates." Consumer Guide adds that "a rearview camera is available on any Acadia, whether or not it's equipped with the optional navigation system," which serves as an excellent supplement to the sonar parking assist. In TheCarConnection.com's research, MotherProof reviewers offer up the best summary of the GMC Acadia's features, declaring that "the Acadia really has just about every feature you could possibly want, plus some you've never imagined."
