GMC Acadia Oil Capacity

General Motors has unveiled an updated version of the second-generation GMC Acadia mid-size crossover. The car received both visual and technical changes.

At the front, this version differs from the old radiator grille in the shape of a rounded rectangle, a different front bumper with vertical air intakes (they used to be horizontal), as well as a new front optics with C-shaped running lights graphics. At the rear of the car, there are new lights, a bumper and square tailpipes (were round).

Inside the cabin, there are no radical changes, with the exception of slightly modified climate control buttons. But on the tunnel, the cup holders have been updated, which are now located across, and not along, but all because the car has lost the traditional automatic transmission control lever, instead of which buttons appeared under the climate control unit, which is responsible for the operating modes of the gearbox. Also, the car has acquired a wireless charger.
