Most of the GM SUVs sit on Lambda platform which actually represents an improved version of the outgoing Epsilon platform. However, the 2017 GMC Acadia will get the brand-new Scalable Chi or C1XX platform. This new platform gives the possibility to create vehicles with a long or short wheelbase.

There is no doubt that the new Acadia will be completely different from its predecessor. It gets a restyled front fascia with squared-off fenders and newly designed LED lights.
