2012 GMC Acadia Wins Best Retained Value Award
The GMC 2012 Acadia's new award for "Best Retained Value" will surely tempt car buyers into considering the stylish SUV for their next vehicle. Research completed by the popular vehicle website Edmunds.com compiled data regarding SUVs in the Acadia's class and discovered that the vehicle's value is highly preserved for the next owner.
When a car buyer is considering a used vehicle, they should review the retention value, which is the vehicle's continued worth after it's been owned for five years. Researchers at Edmunds offer car buyers a "True Market Value" calculation. With the Acadia, used car buyers will see a vehicle that holds 46 percent of its initial cost.
The United States vice president of Buick GMC Sales and Service, Brian Sweeney, commented on the acknowledgement from Edmunds "This accolade from Edmunds verifies what many of our customers already know - that GMC vehicles continue to deliver great value."
After the car maker calculated last year's sales reports, they found that the Acadia's sales were up 16 percent from 2010. Furthermore, the Acadia is responsible for bringing new buyers to GMC as approximately half of the SUV's sales are first-time GMC car buyers.
The vehicle's pricing from $35,000 to $45,000 places it in the luxury category, and car buyers will appreciate the vehicle's numerous features including an estimated 116.9 cubic feet of cargo space, seating for up to eight people and a quiet interior. Consumers will also notice the Acadia's superior engineering, which provides lumbar control in the seats, a memory system for both the driver's seat and mirrors along with a roomy center console with space for today's personal electronics.
