GMC Acadia Has Jet Fighter Technology, Room For Eight

Owners of the 2012 GMC Acadia midsize crossover can safely merge onto the highway using technology similar to what fighter pilots use to guide precise movements at supersonic speeds. The vehicle’s optional heads-up display, or HUD, was born out of aerospace research. “With these devices, the main benefit is seeing important information without the distraction of looking down,” said Wen Wu, a Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science researcher.
