Overview

GMC announced the all-new 2007 Acadia. It is GMC's first crossover, delivering a smooth, responsive driving experience, athletic design, a spacious interior and a comprehensive safety package to the fastest-growing vehicle segment in the United States.

"Acadia is a natural extension of the GMC brand," said John Larson, Pontiac-GMC general manager. "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 is engineered to reflect GMC's professional grade standards on a body-frame integral (BFI) structure that is reinforced with high-strength steel. It rides on a long wheelbase with wide tracks - a combination that lowers the center of gravity and enables agile, stable ride and handling.

Acadia 's driving reflexes are supported by independent front and rear suspensions. The front suspension features a MacPherson strut design, with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and aluminum steering knuckles. Isolated mounting points help reduce noise and vibration. The rear suspension uses a compact, state-of-the-art linked "H" design, which has an isolated mounting system that reduces noise and vibration transmitted to the passenger compartment.

Acadia features standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, with variable-effort steering available. StabiliTrak electronic stability control system with rollover mitigation technology and traction control is standard on all models. GMC Acadia (2007) 2007 GMC Acadia

The available, intelligent all-wheel drive system provides increased traction on slippery roads and other driving situations - such as freeway ramps - where increased traction would enhance handling. There is no driver intervention; the system automatically decides how much torque to apply and delivers it to the wheels that have the best traction.

"The responsive, precisely tuned chassis provides the driving experience of a smaller vehicle," said Larson. "And Acadia's aerodynamic design, efficient V-6 and the new six-speed automatic work together to provide efficiency."
