The AT4 trim elevates the Acadia’s already athletic design to new heights. Stronger body lines make for a more rugged, outdoorsy feel and muscular frame. Add some sharp, tapering headlamps and you’ve got a more aggressive look to match the robust performance upgrades. More of the standard AT4 design features include:

  • 17-inch gloss-black painted aluminum wheels for better off-road capability
  • Gloss black roof rails
  • AT4 badging 
  • Black chrome body accents 
  • Black chrome grille

An Active Torque Control all-wheel-drive system pairs beautifully with this more powerful engine and the Traction Select System enables you to pick your drive mode on the go. Taking it one step further, the AT4 also includes Hill Descent Control with antilock braking and Hill Start Assist. Clearly, GMC is emboldening this SUV with all the tools it needs to conquer the most challenging terrain.
