Detroit, Michigan – General Motors introduced the production version of the new 2007 GMC Acadia, the first crossover vehicle from GMC.
“Acadia is a natural extension of the GMC brand,” says John Larson, general manager of Pontiac-GMC. “Its combination of smooth, responsive ride and handling and SUV versatility embodies GMC’s professional grade philosophy. Acadia is a great looking vehicle that will attract customers who’ve never visited a GMC showroom.”
The Acadia features a long wheelbase with wide tracks for a lower centre of gravity, independent front and rear suspension, LED taillights, 18-inch wheels, available all-wheel drive, and standard traction control and electronic stability control system with rollover mitigation technology. It will use GM’s 3.6-litre V6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and the interior can be configured for seven or eight passengers.
