Holden has announced pricing and specifications for its new 7-seat Acadia SUV.
The range will consist of LT, LTZ and LTZ-V variants, available in front or all-wheel-drive configurations – this was leaked back in early September.
Intended to rival the Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Kluger, the Acadia packs a 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6 producing 231kW of torque and 367Nm of torque. Paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, it consumes 8.9L-9.3L of fuel per 100km, depending on the drivetrain selected.
It measures in at 4979mm long, with a 2857mm wheelbase – that’s 306mm longer than the outgoing Captiva. Boot space is rated at 292 litres with all three rows up, which expands to 1042 litres with the third row down – with the second and third rows folded, there’s a monsterous 2102 litres of room.
The entry-level LT is priced from $43,490 plus on-road costs for the 2WD version, with AWD adding a further $4000 across the range. Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, halogen headlamps, LED daytime-running lights, cloth upholstery, tri-zone climate control, cruise control, reversing camera, keyless entry, push-button start, rear parking sensors, towing package and an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, DAB+ digital radio and Bluetooth.
Safety kit standard on the Acadia LT consists of autonomous emergency braking, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, following distance indicator, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and lateral impact avoidance.
Stepping up to the LTZ ($53,490 plus ORCs in 2WD form) adds leather trim, 10-way driver and 8-way passenger power adjustable seats, heated front seats, auto-dimming interior mirror, chrome door handles, front fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, wireless phole charging, hands-free tailgate, front parking sensors, semi-automatic parking and 18-inch alloys finished in Midnight Silver.
At the top of the range is the LTZ-V, priced from $63,490 plus on-roads for the front-drive model. On top of the LTZ’s already-expansive list of kit, the V gets adaptive ‘FlexRide’ suspension, premium soft-grain leather upholstery, 10-way power passenger seat, memory driver’s seat, ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control with stop/go capability, auto speed limiter, dual panel sunroof, eight speaker Bose audio system, all-speed autonomous emergency braking, 360-degree camera and an 8.0-inch driver information display. It also gains HID headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured lower cladding and wheel arches, rectangular exhaust outlets and extra metallic trim on the rear bumper and roof rails.
Holden are running a number of drive-away deals from launch. See the price list at the bottom of the article for further details.
