First drive: 2017 GMC Acadia

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - GMC's record-setting SUV comes back leaner and meaner. The 2017 GMC Acadia is all-new inside and out, riding on a new chassis and sporting a whole host of new comfort, safety and convenience features. Outside, the new styling represents a pretty significant departure from the Acadia's old look. Up front, the bug-eyed headlamps are gone, replaced by slimmer, LED-lined housings. The squared-off, three-slot grille is also gone, replaced by a vaguely octagonal piece that blends nicely with the slimmer, more elongated shape of the new SUV.

2017 Holden Captiva spied testing in Chevrolet guise

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The now long-anticipated replacement for the Holden Captiva may have surfaced this week, with a new mid-sized Chevrolet SUV prototype hitting the road overseas.
