This year, get a car for the whole family with one of the 2023 GMC SUV lineup. To ensure that you get the model best suited for you, MotorTrend breaks down what is new, plus pros and cons of all the 2023 models. Plus, gives us a sneak peak at the 2021 GMC Hummer EV SUV.
Every Terrain comes with more power this year! There is five more horsepower in the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine than before for 175-hp. The General Motors’ eBoost break-by-wire system has been added along with more paint options: Sterling Metallic, Volcanic Red Tintcoat, and for the Denali only, Deep Bronze Metallic. The Elevation Edition trim has a new style of 19-inch wheels to accompany its blacked-out design details.
The Terrain comes with pros like a comfortable and functional interior layout, a quick-shifting nine-speed automatic, and capable AWC system. A few cons are the start push-button in fickle, Denali trim is trying too hard to be luxury, and the off-road drive mode selection is unintuitive.
The Acadia now comes with more paint options: Ultra Metallic Blue, Volcanic Red Tintcoat, and Sterling Metallic. All trims but the SLE bow come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Huge pros for the Acadia are the V-6 engine is available, a bold exterior design, and the first and second rows being spacious. Cons are the user-friendly push-button start, when all three rows are raised there is almost no cargo space, and the quality of the interior materials is lacking.
Some trims of the Yukon come with new paint options, Titanium Rush Metallic, Volcanic Red Tintcoat, Sterling Metallic, and Frosted Pine Metallic. On the SLE, SLT, and Denali trims, 22-inch wheels are now available. Plus, the Denali trim now has semi-autonomous parking assist system. The Denali Ultimate trim is the new range-topping trim thanks to more upscale trim, amenities, and tech. This is also the first GMC SUV that has the General Motors’ Super Cruise hands-free driving system.
Huge pros for the Yukon include a spacious passenger and cargo space, Air Ride suspension system’s ride quality is available, and diesel I-6 and V-6 engines. Cons are the interior materials are not impressive and not a lot of value difference from the Chevy Tahoe or Suburban.
