Introducing the new Holden Acadia - a truly game changing SUV in Australia. The Acadia comes in three spec levels: LT, LTZ (the photographed Acadia is the LTZ) and the range topping LTZ-V. Each variant comes as a 2WD with a potent 3.6L V6 engine as standard - AWD is optional (this LTZ is also AWD)
Cargo area on the Holden Acadia LTZ AWD
One of the most awesome things I like about the Acadia is the lay-flat third row seats. This really lets the driver load heaps of cargo into the cargo area - there's another feature I really like (only available on LTZ and LTZ-V) and that is the remote tailgate activation. Simply kick under the bumper bar behind the rear tyre on the passenger side of the Acadia and the tailgate opens automatically
The Acadia is built on a special line alongside American Acadias in Spring Hill, TN, 30 miles (48km) south of Nashville
Yep - you did read that caption right! The Australian Acadia is built on a Australia specific production line at the GMC plant in Spring Hill, TN - Spring Hill is 30 miles (48km) south of Nashville. The Spring Hill plant also manufactures domestic Acadias - the Australia specific production line cost General Motors in excess of US$600 million, according to a friend who works at my local Holden dealer.
