GMC Acadia SLT 1
Beginning with Trucks and Moving toward SUV is a nice strategy adopt by GMC Yes it was a Truck Producing company that become a SUV production corporation. First truck by this company was produced in 1902 and from that day this company secured nice Position if we check out its history. This was little about company now what’s the meaning of GMC Acadia is important to know, from where it originates and what its relation to the car is??
Meaning of GMC Acadia:
GMC is the name of company that stands for Grabowsky Motor Corporation also have another name General Motors Truck Company but Acadia has different origins, it is a French word that is name for the Land of Acadians that was the first French colony but also permanent French colony. There is another Place in the world that has name Acadia; it’s a lovely National park in Maine that is fresh and Rhythmic. Both can be reason for the name of car but I think land for Acadians has no link with it because it is an American automobile company so Acadia must be taken from Fresh and Rhythmic National park in Maine.
Acadia SLT 1 is a SUV car that has a big presence; it allows six persons to sit in. Front of GMC Acadia is has nice huge Grill with three lines and GMC logo, Design of this vehicle has totally changed from its previous versions. This will not be wrong to say that everything has changed, first of all its size has been reduced both including height and width. In last ten years it was a full sized SUV vehicle that was more like a minivan but now it just remained a SUV.
Because of this reduction in size something’s are gain too, as it become lighter about 600 pounds so it give better fuel economy from its previous versions and another important thing price tag has reduced little.
