Overview

What's New
The all-new, 8-passenger Acadia represents GMC's first crossover utility vehicle (CUV) and provides a car-like alternative to the truck-like minivan and sport utility vehicle (SUV). It is built on GM's body-frame integral design, which allows a lower access height and plenty of interior space. Sole power is a 275-hp V-6 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Overview
Crossover utility vehicles represent the fastest-growing segment in the U.S. automotive market. While they don't offer the payload and towing capacity of their SUV counterparts, their car-like responsiveness and fuel economy advantages are attracting a growing number of consumers. The Acadia shares its front-drive unit-body platform with the new 2007 Saturn Outlook and 2008 Buick Enclave. Acadia's long 118.9-inch wheelbase (the distance between the front and rear axles) and wide 67.28-inch track (the distance between the center of the two front or two rear wheels) combine to provide a lower center of gravity, which contributes to a mannerly and stable ride. The long wheelbase also allows the Acadia's rear doors to be wider than those found on many traditional SUVs, which permits easier access to the third-row seat. Access is further enhanced with GMC's Smart Slide second-row seat that allows the seat to fold and slide up against the back of the front seats. In addition to a roomy cabin, the full-size Acadia offers abundant cargo room. With the second- and third-row seats folded there is approximately 117 cubic feet of cargo space, and nearly 20 cubic feet when the third-row seat is upright.

The new Acadia comes in two trim levels: SLE and up-level SLT. Base SLE models come equipped with such features as AM/FM/CD stereos with MP3 compatibility, cloth seats, 18-inch aluminum wheels, dual exhaust with chrome tips, and OnStar's Turn-By-Turn Navigation. The Acadia is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine featuring variable valve timing. It is mated to a new, fuel-saving 6-speed automatic transmission and is available in front- and all wheel-drive models. Acadia's 275-hp engine helps deliver 251 lb.-ft. of torque, giving the Acadia a 4,500-pound towing capacity. Standard safety features include GM's StabiliTrak stability control system with rollover mitigation technology, six air bags, and a tire-pressure-monitoring system.

The Competition
The GMC Acadia competes in the Midsize Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) segment, which consists of 13 models. Buyers in this segment look for comfort, reliability, and quality, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2006 Avoider StudySM and the Escaped Shopper Study.SM

Power and Associates Sales Report,SM were the Toyota Highlander (129,794 units sold), Nissan Murano (81,362), and Chrysler Pacifica (78,243). The GMC Acadia sold 480 units in December 2006 in its first month on the market. Other models offered in the Midsize CUV segment include the Ford Freestyle, Buick Rendezvous, Subaru B9 Tribeca, and Hyundai Santa Fe. Joining the segment in 2007 are the Ford Five Edge, Mazda CX-9, and Saturn Outlook.
