Peoria, IL (PressExposure) April 02, 2009 -- At a time when everyone is trying to save money, every Peoria dealership is searching for the best value to offer its customers. The best value Heritage GMC, the premiere GMC dealer located in Central Illinois is proud to offer is the 2009 GMC Acadia, a crossover vehicle designed to offer families a stylish, comfortable ride. The 2009 GMC Acadia seats 8 and offers a hipper alternative for those unwilling to be seen in a minivan.
At the Heritage GMC dealers in Peoria, the Acadia's popularity has been unmistakable. Heritage Buick GMC says that GMC Acadia Peoria buyers are hoping to find is even better than their expectations. As an 8-passenger vehicle that gets 24 MPG on the highway, the 2009 Acadia surprises customers as a very fuel efficient vehicle for its size and capabilities.
The Acadia is offered in an all-wheel-drive version as well, something the people at Heritage Buick GMC say GMC Acadia Peoria customers have opted for due to its supreme performance in snowy conditions. The Acadia offers drivers more confidence in winter conditions due to its AWD package and superior handling.
Interior space and well-thought out seating are what make the Acadia particularly appealing. A third-row seat is standard, which allots room for seven to eight people altogether. The third row's a real third row, too. There's almost 20 cubic feet of additional storage space behind the third row; plus, maximum towing capacity is 4,500 pounds!
Three trim levels are available on the Acadia, and all are powered by a 3.6 liter V6 with Variable Valve Timing (VVT). The VVT feature enables turning either the front wheels only, or all four if necessary, exclusively through a six-speed automatic transmission. With the former, the EPA estimates the Acadia will return 16 city/24 highway mpg. The all-wheel-drive models return 16 / 22 mpg respective numbers.
Buyers looking for luxury will not be disappointed either. The Acadia with the SLT1 package includes power heated front seats, a 10-speaker Bose audio system, and leather seating for the first two rows. Other optional add-ons are the rearview camera and parking sensors for backing assistance.
