AT4 Vs. Denali: Which 2023 GMC Acadia Should I Lease

The GMC Acadia caters to families and mid-size three-row SUV lovers seeking capable and affordable transport. It is best known for its rugged, truck-like appearance, likable V6 engine, and spacious first and second rows.

If you are considering a high-end 2023 GMC Acadia lease deal, we’ve curated this article comparing the SUV’s topmost trim levels.

AT4 and Denali

The 2023 GMC Acadia can be had in four trim levels, namely SLE, SLT, AT4, and Denali. The SUV’s standard engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 228 horsepower & 258 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine is a 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6 with 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. Gears are shifted by a nine-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive is standard. The models with the V6 registers a faster 0-to-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds.


The AT4 is just behind the top-of-the-range Denali. It is Acadia’s dedicated off-road model and has a slew of appearance and mechanical enhancements to show for it. The AT4 stands out from the rest of the Acadia’s lineup with its rugged looks, unique all-wheel-drive system that comes standard, and standard V6 engine. Other highlights of the latest Acadia AT4 include.

  • Exclusive 17-inch gloss-black wheels with all-terrain tires
  • Active Torque Control AWD System (Specially tuned all-wheel-drive system for off-road and multi-terrain environments to enhance handling and stability)
  • Exclusive AT4 grille and black chrome details
  • 155-amp alternator
  • Premium cloth seat trim
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • 49 axle ratio


The Denali runs the luxury show for the Acadia. It is the priciest and most equipped trim. Whereas the AT4 can only be had with the V6, the Denali allows shoppers to select between the base four-cylinder and the V6, though the latter is the standard offering. Unlike the AT4, the Acadia Denali comes standard with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is optional. Here are some of the Acadia Denali’s key talking points.

  • 20-inch ultra bright machined aluminum wheels
  • 0-inch infotainment system with navigation
  • 0-inch head-up display
  • GMC Pro Safety Plus package with cutting-edge safety and driver assistance features like Front and Rear Park Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • 0-inch reconfigurable driver information screen
  • 8-way power front passenger seat
  • Heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats
  • Heated rear outboard seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Memory settings
  • Power tilt and telescoping steering column
  • Perforated leather-appointed seat trim
  • Wireless charging

Whether you are in for its terrain-tackling capabilities or luxurious top-tier trim, the Acadia remains a stylish and capable mid-size three-row SUV.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
