Difference Between SLT1 and SLT2 GMC Acadia

SLT1 vs SLT2 GMC Acadia

The Acadia is the mid-priced offering of GMC for the full-sized SUV market. The top two trim levels for the Acadia are the SLT1 and SLT2. The price difference between the SLT1 and SLT2 isn’t really that much, so you shouldn’t expect performance advantages. What you get instead are small improvements in comfort and convenience. This is a exhibited by the inclusion of memory systems for both the side mirrors and the driver’s seat of the SLT2.

The memory is used to remember the positions of both the side mirror and the seat individually. If someone borrows your SLT2 and forgets to put the side mirrors or seat back into position, you would no longer have to fiddle with them again. At a touch of a button, the SLT2 would automatically change their positions to your preference. This is further enhanced compliments of the keyfob. Each keyfob can have different settings that they restore once you use it to open the doors. So you can have a keyfob for yourself and another for your wife and both of you would no longer need to think about the mirrors or the seats again.

There is also a difference between the SLT2 and SLT1 when it comes to the upgrades that you can get for them. Actually, there are upgrades that are only available for the SLT2 and not the SLT1. The first is HID or High Intensity Discharge headlamps. These headlamps put out a lot more light giving you increased visibility for nighttime driving. The second upgrade exclusive for the SLT2 is the HUD or Heads-Up Display. This feature projects unto your windshield information that you would otherwise find on your dashboard or stereo. This significantly increases your safety as you no longer have to remove your eyes from the road in order to check something. Lastly, you can get heated/cooled seats on the SLT2. Not really an essential feature, but is very nice to have in case you live in areas with very cold or very hot climates.


  1. The SLT2 side mirrors are equipped with memory while the SLT1’s are not
  2. The SLT2 driver’s seat is also equipped with memory while the SLT1’s are not
  3. The SLT2 can have HID headlamps while the SLT1 cannot
  4. The heads-up display is available on the SLT2 but not on the SLT1
  5. Heated/cooled seats are available on the SLT2 but not on the SLT1

  1. we purchased definitely not knowing a SLT1 at the price of an SLT2 and were told it was an SLT2. Could you please send me an email that has a list of everything a SLT 2 has. we were told that we were buying the top of the line and the next step up would be buying a Dinali he went out of his way to tell us that the car we were buying where is mostly for comfort because I have had seven major back surgeries and that’s what I needed as much comfort and luxury of having an SLT2 so we didn’t mind paying what they were asking we completely spent about $10,000 over what a
    S LT2 costs. he knew exactly what he was doing we only had that one day to find the SUV that we needed I spent all day with him and he knew everything I needed we spent two hours sitting in a car with me explaining to him what has gone on in my life and with my back and how much I needed to have a comfortable, enjoyable family car we have for baby grandchildren from my daughter and a chocolate lab who is a service dog we needed to be able to fit for car seats and a place for our dog. I gave him a list of my 12345s of what I must have for the car I wanted and needed to have I was getting ready to have another back surgery and we had to get back the next within the next two days and that’s how long it takes to get back driving. he talked me into buying a four-door sedan I was there in Oregon with my mom and dad at their house we live in Washington Utah an hour from Las Vegas and I was so depressed and so miserable he could’ve sold me a rock to walk on and I probably would’ve said that sounds good I even told him I hated the car that I bought and he still just let me sign the paperwork. last year at between Thanksgiving and The fourth of January we ended up not getting a 2015 brand-new car but a 2014 60,000 miles he told us he got that he took the car in on trade himself and he knew the old owners of the vehicle he didn’t give us the Carfax and he made sure that we didn’t have the manual to the car it was awful we have driven back-and-forth to Oregon just having them work on the car and we keep paying more money we bought it for a total of probably $34,000 and then had to buy new tires on it for another $800 almost plus a $3000 bumper to bumper or special warranty that supposedly the owner came up with just for me and this was a dealership a GMC dealer ship in Oregon and I would really love to know what an SLT2 has??? thank you so much for letting me use you as a sounding board it’s been almost a year I guess it’s been a year and paying that amount of money in one day I’m disabled my husband is a salesman he only makes commission we would’ve never ever and will never have another chance to ever purchase something like this I am 53 years old and my husband is seven years older than myself I will never get over this because my parents paid cash for this and I could’ve bought any car I wanted brand-new this guy was the biggest Wendler in one day I bought a car for $23,000 didn’t want the car at all called him two days later because all I could do was cry told him I hated the car I told him I never wanted the car it’s nothing that I even wanted he said we would trade straight across for whatever car I wanted and then pay whatever extra it cost well he didn’t tell me that they were going to just give me $17,000 the car had 6 miles on it and he asked me to just park the car at my mom and dad don’t drive it and we will figure this out come to find out he didn’t tell anybody this was going on so they went ahead and sent in the title go for that one !!!!!!

    • 08/11/2018: Candace, I just priced a 2015 SLT2 with only 28,537 miles on it…and I’m still negotiating it way down lower. $29,799 before taxes etc is their current offering. Get an attorney and tell them your story. There is also an 2015 SLT1 close to me for sale with 23,393 miles on it, for much, much less, and the only differences in the two cars is in the article above.
      Many states have legal protection for people with illnesses or disabilities. I’ve had 3 radical spine surgeries and 2 hip replacements. They are guilty of retail fraud.
