The GMC brand is about to enter the fastest-growing vehicle segment in the marketplace with both guns blazing. The 2007 Acadia seats up to 8 and boasts a car-like ride by way of its four-wheel independent suspension. A sophisticated drivetrain and impressive list of standard safety features are intended to impress those entering the SUV market.

The Acadia's presence amongst competitors will surely be noticed with its cutting-edge hardware and distinctive styling cues borrowed from larger GMC SUVs. Its fresh and modern lines look original, while a hint of subtle flare should stand to adequately separate it from its competitors.

Inside, flexible seating and plenty of storage space allow drivers to adapt the Acadia to meet any combination of people and cargo. Most notable is a plentiful 557 liters of space behind the third-row seat when it resides in its upright position. GMC claims sufficient seating space in all positions for adults. The interior is designed to be quiet and safe, while optional features like a heads-up display, Bose stereo, heated mirrors and washer fluid, and remote vehicle starting round out the package. Six airbags are standard.

assistance in the case of an accident. A one-year "Safe and Sound" package is included.

Available as a front- or all-wheel drive model, Acadia is motivated by GM's high-feature 3.6L V6 engine with VVT (Variable Valve Timing) which helps the mill generate 267 horsepower. Constructed heavily of aluminum, the 3.6-liter unit was designed with the automaker's global architecture by engineers from several countries. It is intended to be quiet, efficient and long lasting.

Four-wheel disc brakes, StabiliTrak, rollover mitigation and ABS help keep the power in check. The engine is combined with a 6-speed automatic gearbox to help achieve fuel economy at 13.8 L/100 km (20 MPG) in city driving and 9.4-9.8 L/100 km (29-30 MPG) on the highway. The gearbox is of a compact design, with gear ratios selected for optimal performance feel and economy. The all-wheel drive system operates invisibly, requiring no driver input to compensate for changes in traction. Grip on slippery surfaces is improved, as is all-season performance.

Given the versatility, power, safety and fresh looks of the Acadia, GMC should expect quite a stir when its new SUV goes on sale.
