What GMC Acadia Oil Type Is Recommended by the Manufacturer?

GMC recommends its ACDelco brand of oil, called dexos1, as the GMC Acadia oil type. The dexos1 oil keeps your SUV’s engine in great shape for well over a decade of owning your new vehicle. Your GMC Acadia oil type also depends on the size of the engine. 

  • For the 2.0L L4 turbo engine, use SAE 0W-20 full synthetic engine oil.
  • If you have the 3.6L V6 engine, use SAE 5W-30 full synthetic engine oil.
  • If you travel to a place where the temperature falls below -20 °F, install SAE 0W-30 full synthetic oil.

The GMC Acadia oil capacity is 5 quarts for the 2.0L engine and 6 quarts for the 3.6L V6. You’ll need to know the GMC Acadia oil capacity when you purchase the lubricant for doing your own oil changes in Levanworth.

Consult with your owner’s manual to see what kind of oil GMC recommends for your specific SUV. Our team will replace the oil with the right grade whenever we work on your GMC Acadia during its regular oil change interval. We’ll have you in and out in no time!

Synthetic vs. Conventional for Your GMC Acadia Oil 

You have a choice when changing your GMC Acadia’s oil. Your vehicle can take conventional (regular) oil or full synthetic oil. We strongly recommend full synthetic oil because it will keep your engine cleaner for longer, and it could prevent expensive repairs later.

Full synthetic oil is more expensive when you pay for an oil change. However, the oil change interval is longer with full synthetic oil, and you’ll actually save money in the long run.

  • You’ll still need oil changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles for older vehicles using conventional oil 
  • Full synthetic motor oil change intervals are every 7,500 miles 

Make sure to look at your engine oil life system or your owner’s manual for the right oil change interval for your SUV.

Genuine GMC parts, including dexos1 oil and a GMC Acadia oil filter, are best for your GMC because the manufacturer has specially formulated the oil for its engines. Also, having the right GMC Acadia oil type and ACDelco parts can help reduce or eliminate expensive repairs later.
