The 2017 Acadia is a GMC SUV that has some truly impressive performance specs as well as a wide array of infotainment and safety features, not to mention a truly slick and outstanding design -- but the most impressive and innovative feature of this vehicle isn't immediately visible to the naked eye.

This particular GMC SUV makes use of aircraft-grade adhesives all along the seams, something which allows it to have a body that's so stiff that the vehicle gets by using thinner steel. The end result of this intelligent structural engineering is a GMC SUV that is an incredible 700 pounds lighter than its predecessor. This allows it to achieve as many as 23 miles per gallon.

This GMC SUV is a great example of how out-of-the-box thinking in auto engineering can lead to greater fuel efficiency.
