Preliminary local specifications for the upcoming 7-seat Holden Acadia have leaked online, ahead of an official announcement on October 1st.
This information comes from the official Australian government website RVCS, which lists technical specifications for upcoming models before they land in showrooms.
The Acadia will be available in three different trim levels: LT, LTZ and LTZ-V. Each variant will be offered with a choice of front or all-wheel-drive.
A single powertrain will be offered across the range: a 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine that produces 231kW of power at 6600rpm and 367Nm of torque at 5000rpm. All models will be paired to a 9-speed automatic transmission as standard.
Front-wheel-drive Acadias weigh 1860kg to 1897kg depending on variant, while all variants can tow up to 2000kg with a braked trailer (or 750kg unbraked).
According to RVCS, the entry-level LT will come standard with 18-inch silver alloy wheels, 235/65 tyres, halogen headlights and a tow ball. Above the LT, the LTZ gets front fog lights – in addition to other comfort and safety features that have not been published on RVCS. At the top of the range sits the LTZ-V, which gains 20-inch machined alloy wheels, 235/55 tyres, dual sunroof and automatic LED headlights. These features are the only ones listed on the RVCS website – a full specification list will be released in October.
The new Holden Acadia goes on sale in October, with full pricing and specifications set to be released on the 1st day of the month. The level of detail provided by RVCS is quite concerning, however it allows us to get a revealing first look into an upcoming car.
